Imagery and the potential healing powers of the mind have been in existence almost since the beginning of time. The body of research and treatment of illness in Western medicine, however, has focused primarily on developing biological methods designed to correct the maladies of the body through medical, surgical, and pharmaceutical interventions. In recent years, psychologists and social scientists have become more aware of the mind—body connection and of how covert events (thoughts, feelings, and images) can influence the course of disease.
