Acute pain alerts you to the danger of what you are experiencing. Chronic pain tells you that something is wrong when you may have limited ability to change the external situation. When the psyche understands this, it has the capacity to quiet or turn off a pain message that is no longer useful. This is true both with physical as well as emotional pain.
Similar to hypnosis, Interactive Guided Imagery uses a trance state in order to develop a place of inner safety and inner wisdom to help you heal. Unlike hypnosis, however, you are an active participant in the imagery rather than a recipient of another’s images. The interactive nature of this process often produces images that are more relevant to the participant and can help a person to find their own inner wisdom.
