The Science Behind Imadulation’s Guided Imagery
The mental images we hold affect not only our emotions, but also our physiology. Guided Imagery is a technique that utilizes powerful and positive sensorial experiences to heal the mind-body connection. Imadulation's unique Guided Imagery contains a prosodic, soothing, melodic voice spoken over peaceful music with sounds from nature. Combined with binaural audio, these techniques have been shown scientifically to promote a sense of calm and relaxation. Binaural audio contains targeted frequencies that entrain alpha and theta brain waves, which are the frequencies dominant in states of relaxation. It also enhances neuroplasticity by breaking up rigid patterns of behavior.
Guided Imagery is recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a safe and effective alternative therapy for mind-body wellness. Imadulation’s Guided Imagery contains educational relaxation training designed to counter the progression of the stress response, reduce hyperactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, induce physical relaxation of the muscles and teach deep meditative breathing. The great thing about it is that the positive effects grow in intensity the more you use it– it’s like muscle memory for your brain!
