Interactive Imagery Certification Program

Interactive imagery is a form of focused relaxation that helps enhance a mind-body-spirit healing approach that assists the healing of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual disharmony. It is a way of working with energy to provide a powerful psychological strategy that enhances coping skills.

Imagery involves all the senses, as well as one’s whole body and emotions. It is a way of viewing ideas, feelings, experiences and interpretations, that uses words and images to help move  attention away from the worry, stress and pain and brings the natural powers of the mind into health and healing. The body reacts the same whether we are actually experiencing something or just imagining something.

Energy workers can integrate Interactive Imagery into their practice to help clients navigate their lives more easily and confidently with improved health and well-being.

Research shows that Interactive Imagery can give a person a greater sense of control, increase self-confidence, assist with fear, panic, anxiety, helplessness, uncertainty, trauma, loss, and grief, increase relaxation, decrease depression, decrease stress, decrease pain, decrease nausea, decrease blood pressure, decrease respiratory difficulties, decrease medication side effects, balance hormones, improve immune system, improve healing and recovery time, and sharpen memory.

Interactive Imagery enhances sleep, strengthens connection to spirituality, meaning, and purpose in life, improves functional outcomes, optimize performance and improve quality of life.

Becoming certified as an Interactive Imagery Guide will give you the knowledge and confidence to add Interactive Imagery to your client services.
