Study finds guided imagery helps manage symptoms of fibromyalgia
November 19, 2012 by Cheryle Rodriguez in Diseases, Conditions, Syndromes (Medical Xpress)
Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing researchers have discovered that guided imagery significantly decreases stress, fatigue, pain and depression in women with fibromyalgia. The study abstract, "Effects of Guided Imagery on Biobehavioral Factors in Women with Fibromyalgia," published online in the Journal of Behavioral Medicine, also found significant improvement in self-efficacy, the belief that one can cope regardless of the challenge.
Individuals with a high level of self-efficacy seemed better able to manage symptoms that accompany a chronic illness.
"The guided imagery intervention is low-cost, simple to use and easily accessible," said principal investigator and lead author Victoria Menzies, R.N., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Adult Health and Nursing Systems. "This study provides support for the use of guided imagery as an adjunctive approach to clinical management of the challenging symptoms of fibromyalgia."
