  • (1888PressRelease) April 16, 2011 - West Chester, OH - Jacky Groenewegen and Mindful Wellness Massage and Bodywork, LLC proudly announce the creation of the website to provide holistic practice professionals a resource for Guided Imagery Meditation CD's and related products. "My clients were spreading the word about the guided imagery meditations I offer during their bodywork sessions and how much they improve the experience. As a result, many holistic professionals were asking if I would record meditations so they could use them in their practices. I realized there was quite a demand so I decided to record the meditations and offer them to my fellow practice owners," said Groenewegen.

    She adds, "There are several nuances when creating guided imageries that should be followed to insure the maximum benefit."

    According to Groenewegen, Guided imagery has grown increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. It is a form of psychotherapy in which someone - usually the psychotherapist or someone trained in guided imagery - leads the client through a series of visualizations. The guide typically leaves a significant portion of the guided imagery up to their mind to create, which allows the imagination to grab hold of the process and really make it their own. The trained guide prompts them to deal with whatever issues they are working through with the imagery in a non-confrontational, calming way."

    It is essentially an induced dreaming or daydreaming and it allows the subconscious to express itself while the person is ctually awake. Guided imagery is similar to meditation. Meditation is more about mental training than about therapeutic mental calming (although guided imagery can do both of these things). The benefits of guided imagery are powerful, indeed.

    How Does it Work?

    The best way to explain guided imagery is by explaining the placebo effect. In all medicinal studies, a medicine must be compared against a placebo, or a fake, non-functional medicine (usually a sugar pill, if the other medicine is in the pill form), which is administered to a control group. The benefits of the medication in the patients that received the real medication are compared with those that got no medication, but thought they were getting the medication.

    Who Is It For?

    Anyone can benefit from guided imagery. This is a process that has no possible negative effects, as it is, at the end of the day, just using the mind and imagination in a productive way and it can work in your favor for a vast number of possible problems. For those who have stress over work, your kids, school, your relationships, or sports, guided imagery can help.

    If there is a health problem from something as simple as a common cold to something as dangerous as cancer or HIV, Guided imagery can help. As more research has been done on the connection between the brain and the body, the more we have discovered that each one greatly influences the other.

    Groenewegen tells us, "Since client needs vary so dramatically, there is no one-size fits all. That's why we created three guided imagery CD's that focus on the most common issues: Detoxifying the Body, Reducing Stress and Releasing Pain. Each is 60 minutes long. There's also a compilation CD that offers each meditation in a 15-minute condensed version.

    The CD's are available at wholesale pricing for practice owners as well as for retail customers. By offering them at wholesale prices, the professionals can offer them to clients, who can extend the benefits of their session by listening to the imageries from the comfort of their homes."
