Abstract

Guided imagery can be an effective intervention when used as a therapeutic modality for a variety of symptoms and conditions. It can improve health and enhance well-being, particularly through the reduction of pain and anxiety. The application of a specific type of guided imagery, integrative guided imagery, is presented through a case report and within the context of the therapeutic recreation process. Implications for the use of guided imagery in therapeutic recreation are discussed.
