How does Guided Imagery for Surgery work?
Guided imagery stimulates the parasympathetic part of our nervous system. This part of our nervous system induces various “rest-and-digest” activities vs. “fight-or-flight” activities. When the body is at rest, healing, repair, and recovery can occur.
Guided Imagery offers transcendence away from worry and fear by drawing your attention to a specific and enticing mental vision. Practicing this transcendence offers you a much-needed sense of mastery and control over your thoughts, feelings, and, ultimately, your body and illness.

More About Guided Imagery
Guided Imagery involves closing your eyes and imagining a scene that involves each of your senses – sight, hearing, smelling, tasting – and thinking, feeling, and visualizing yourself within that scene.
Engaging the mind this way helps put you into a deeply relaxed state where you can imagine your body as you wish it would be. Imagine any scene that makes you feel happy, calm, healthy, and fully recovered.
You can visualize yourself sitting on the beach, walking in a forest, trekking a mountain, swimming in the pool, or in any scenario that uplifts your spirit—involved and immersed in the sights of the place you imagine, the sounds, smells, and energy of your surroundings.
In your mind’s eye, you can see yourself doing anything you love to do and imagine that you’re doing things already healthy and fully recovered. Your goal is to immerse yourself in that scene so successfully that your mind will believe you can accomplish it. The aftermath of this process is increased confidence, reduced stress, and even strengthening your immune system.
