Abstract

Health anxiety is a common problem and is associated with frequent primary care visits, increased health care costs, and poor prognosis and low recovery rates. Previous research shows that imagery rescripting (IR) is a promising treatment technique for various disorders. To date, IR has not been examined as a viable treatment for health anxiety. The purpose of the present feasibility and pilot study was to test one session of IR of early anxiety-laden health-related memories in a small sample of patients suffering from HA.
