"Chemo Comfort" is designed to enhance your comfort and relaxation during chemotherapy treatments and to help the listener cope with the treatment’s potential side effects, e.g., nausea, fatigue, vomiting, etc. The imagery includes guided relaxation of the body and a journey to lead you to a place of peace where immersive healing is introduced. This title was chosen by a major pharmaceutical company and distributed along with chemotherapy medication to improve red blood cell count. It has been used successfully by over 100,000 patients nationwide.
