Guided Meditation

 

Meditation can remove stress and replace it with a dose of inner peace. It’s one of the best tools we have to balance our emotions, deal with physical and psychological distress, and promote the peace of the present moment. But it can be tough to meditate without a teacher or guide. Enter guided meditations. Meditating on your own requires some effort, while guided meditations literally walk you through a meditation and help you find a calm and peaceful state—one step at a time. Guided meditations can range from five minutes to one hour and can be paired with theraputic messages and skill training.

 

 

 

Treatment modalities for guided meditation work:

 

Mindfulness Training - learning "in the moment" techniques that enhance peace and calm, which can reduce and prevent apprehensiveness.

 

Hypnotherapy -an altered state of awareness, perception or consciousness that is used, by licensed and trained doctors or masters prepared individuals, for treating psychological or physical problems in a highly relaxed state.

 

Bilateral Stimulation -  stimuli (visual, auditory or tactile) which occur in a rhythmic left-right pattern. During meditation, auditory bilateral stimulation involves listening to tones that alternate between the left and right sides of the head.
