This guided meditation for chronic or acute pain uses two research-proven methods for pain management which provides pleasant diversion for the mind with positive, healing guided imagery (good for chronic pain), and offers guidance for facing and softening acute pain such as muscle spasm, injury or post-surgical pain. A separate track of affirmations provides quick relief in a briefer format that can be enjoyed while engaged in other activities.

Guided imagery is a complementary, mind-body therapy that consists of healing words and images set to soothing music aimed to achieve specific healing or wellness goals. Repeated listening once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact. Through relaxing through physical or emotional pain, refocusing the mind, and marshaling serotonin-elevating images of love, gratitude, safety and peace, muscle aches and joint pain can subside, be minimized, or even transformed.

Written and narrated for Health Journeys™ by guided imagery and holistic health expert, Belleruth Naparstek, and scored to the soothing music of Steven Mark Kohn, this gentle but powerful pain relief meditation was produced by the Cleveland Orchestra’s Bruce Gigax. This empowering program has been found effective for many kinds of chronic pain management, for conditions as diverse as pancreatitis, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, emotional pain, joint pain relief, headache, gastric distress, and back pain.

See for yourself the difference guided meditation can make for your own pain management and relief. There is a reason Health Journeys™’ programs are considered a best practice for pain relief by health providers and mind-body specialists nationwide.
