“I served 27 and a half years in the Army. 8 years after I retired my body caught up to me and I started experiencing severe degenerative cervical spine challenges. I went through 3 years of intense treatment and for almost 2 and a half years my "pain management protocol" included 2 10mg Morphine, 2 Vicodin, and 6 Robaxin per day. Then, in 2013 a friend introduced me to the Guided Imagery offered through Health Journeys. 3 years later I'm out of the cervical collar, off of the opiates, and able to do more than I was the three previous years.” — Major Kevin Knapp US Army Veteran

— Belleruth Naparstek, Health Journeys
“I believe being able to put a small, portable device immediately in the hands of my patients when they are in my office… has been an enhancement to the therapeutic relationship. The Veteran feels both heard and acknowledged for their suffering for a small price.”
