Guided Imagery & Progressive Relaxation Reduced Anticipatory Nausea and Vomiting


Researchers at the Department of Psychiatry, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine in Seoul, South Korea studied the effectiveness of progressive muscle relaxation training (PMRT) and guided imagery (GI) in reducing the anticipatory nausea and vomiting (ANV) and postchemotherapy nausea and vomiting (PNV) and in increasing quality of life for patients with breast cancer.


Thirty new chemotherapy patients with breast cancer were randomized to the PMRT and GI group and 30 to the control group. Before each of six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy, each patient was administered a self-report Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist (MAACL), and incidents of ANV and PNV for the first three postchemotherapy days were recorded. All patients were administered the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Breast (FACT-B) at baseline and after 3 and 6 months.

The study found that the PMRT and GI group was significantly less anxious, depressed and angry than the control group. In addition, the PMRT and GI group experienced significantly less ANV and PNV, and 6 months after CT, the QoL of the PMRT and GI group was higher than that of the control group.

These results indicate that PMRT and GI were associated with both the improvements in ANV and PNV and in the QoL of patients with breast cancer.

How to use hypnosis

Most people immediately think of hypnosis as being something involving a stage show. They think of people quacking like a duck or heating and onion or lemon and believing that it is something sweet. However, hypnosis is actually much more than that. When used by a qualified and talented hypnotherapist it can be used for a wide range of mental health, medical, and performance-oriented applications. Therefore, the primary uses of hypnosis are healing the body, healing the mind, and self-actualization. Medical applications of hypnosis include stress management and the direct influence of...

Increasing self-esteem with hypnosis

Self-esteem, which is synonymous with self worth, is thought by many to refer to a combination of beliefs and values. The way I look at it, essentially self worth is directly affected by one's ability to cope and overcome the challenges in life. If you feel like you have sufficient resources in terms of finances and/or talents and abilities, you may feel like there's not anything that you can't handle. However, if those challenges are deemed to exceed your abilities, then quickly or increasingly over time you will find that your feelings of self-worth may diminish. Over time this may have a...

What is smoking? - About smoking

What is smoking, why should I care, and how do I quit?

Smoking includes the inhalation of burning tobacco into your airways – to include your lungs. It is done as an addictive habit. Once a non-smoker gets past the initial awkwardness of the act of smoking, the social benefits and simultaneous calming and stimulus benefits lead to a frequent repetition.
