While this book is about imagining, it's extremely practical. Dr. Rossman will teach you a step-by-step method of using the mind to help further your own healing. You will learn to use mental imagery to achieve deep physiologic relaxation, stimulate healing responses in your body, and create an inner dialogue that can help you to better understand your health and what you can do to improve it. Dr. Rossman describes his introduction to the healing powers of imagery, presents models of how it may work, and shares some of the healing he has witnessed in people who have learned how to use this powerful tool. He describes the nine imagery skills he has found most helpful, and then provides scripts that will teach you each skill.
Dr. Rossman has recorded the scripts in a collection of cassettes called "Healing Yourself," and when these tapes are used in conjunction with the book, you will experience firsthand the power of using imagery to help draw on your inner wisdom, a powerful force for healing and growth.

A responsible and wonderful contribution. A real gift to the person with illness and to all people interested in health. -- O. Carl Simonton, M.D.
Dr. Rossman is a pioneer in the use of imagery to promote self-healing. This book skillfully balances the art and science of imagery and is destined to become a classic. -- Dean Ornish, M.D.
So much emphasis has been placed in recent years on the wonders of medical science that there is a tendency to forget or minimize the significance of the built-in apothecary of all human beings. Dr. Rossman shows how the individual can invoke the body's getting the most out of the patient-physician partnership. -- Norman Cousins
This superb collection of imagery techniques is a landmark contribution to the emerging field of behavioral medicine. An eminently practical step-by-step guide to both the creative and receptive side of the imagination. -- Joan Borysenko, Ph.D.
This unique book teaches practical skills that are applicable to a wide range of disorders, yet it is never glib or simplistic. -- Kenneth Pelletier, Ph.D.
Dr. Rossman writes of the success he has had using deep relaxation, guided imagery, and inner guidance as therapeutic modes in his Marin County practice. He outlines a program of progressive phases of these experiences, which he believes can be powerful tools for self-healing. He provides scripts for each stage, so that readers may create their own therapy tapes. Rossman stresses that anyone can learn to contact an "inner advisor," thereby achieving greater self-knowledge, if not always physical cure. As clear and pragmatic a manual as one will find on the subject. For public libraries with a holistic health/New Age audience. Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.
