This Visualization Method Will Bring Your Lovemaking to the Next Level
Most of us have been told at one point or another to go to our, “Happy Place.” Usually what this is referring to is an instruction for us to visualize or imagine ourselves in a content and happy state, oftentimes, surrounded by nature. What we may not realize is that when we engage in this type of imaginative day-dreaming, we are really utilizing fragments of a substantiated therapeutic and medical technique known as guided image therapy, or visualization. This technique has been shown to be effective when dealing with a host of issues ranging from chronic pain, to depression, and even improvement of relationships with others.
Visualization is a technique where,usually at the verbal prompting of a trained professional, an individual uses their imagination to create a setting in which they focus heavily on relaxation and sensory information. It is a form of meditation and is somewhat similar to hypnosis, however clients are consciously still aware of their real and current surroundings. Although it is known as visualization, guided imagery incorporates as many of the senses as possible to deliver a comprehensive and heightened experience.
Essentially, visualization is a way for an individual to develop a mind/body connection in order to improve aspects of both emotional and physical well-being, and to target specific issues. The idea is to focus on mental images and sensations to bring about feelings of relaxation. Not surprisingly, when utilizing guided imagery, an individual will typically experience relaxing of the muscles, and slowing of breathing patterns.
