Guided Imagery FAQs


What Is Guided Imagery?

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Guided Imagery is purposeful imagination (using all the imagined senses) to achieve a specific positive outcome. Our bodies do not know the difference between real and imagined scenarios.

Studies using fMRI’s show that whether a subject actually experiences something or only imagines it, the brain activity recorded by the fMRI is the same.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”green” align=”align_left” el_width=”30″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

What Is The Difference Between Guided Imagery And Hypnosis?


  • Hypnosis in its simplest form is suggestion-oriented: the hypnotist uses his/her voice to speak specific words and phrases to suggest a positive outcome. Imagery is often used within and in conjunction with hypnosis.
  • Guided Imagery is visual and sensory-oriented. The hypnotist guides you through a visual journey for a specific purpose (such as relaxation, health, performance, emotional release) using all the senses: imagined sight, smell, hearing, touch, taste.
