Specifically sequenced classical music is combined with therapeutic vignettes and relaxation techniques in order to harmonize those emotional, physical, and spiritual components of patients’ sense of well-being. "The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music is characterized by the use of specially sequenced western classical music designed to stimulate and sustain a dynamic unfolding of imagery experiences. Sessions in this one-to-one modality are conducted by facilitators who are formally trained in The Bonny Method of GIM" (Mardis & Clark, 2008).
