Endorsements from Leaders
“Across the board—from athletes training for major events, actors and actresses preparing for opening night, musicians, business people, administrators, educators, coaches, college students, chronic pain clients, to overstressed husbands and wives—I have found Dr. Miller’s guided imagery products to be the foundation on which the success of all the other wellness options I utilize rest upon!
They help people from all backgrounds learn how to harness stress-energy and turn it into the fuel for optimal performance better than any other materials available in the country. I am very appreciative of having come into contact with Dr. Miller’s guided imagery programs and resource material.
My continued success with clients has been, to a large degree, based upon the concepts of StressFitness I have learned from Dr. Miller. It is for these reasons that I give Dr. Miller’s guided imagery programs and resource material my highest endorsement.
His book, Feeling Good: How to Stay Healthy, has helped me put the concept of StressFitness into proper context in my own life, as well as my clients, better than any book I have ever read.”

“You are a real musician… Not only in what you have produced and recorded but especially in the sensitive way you elicit “music” in a large group—your words and your movement.”
––Joe Eger, Conductor, The Symphony for the United Nations, Visiting Conductor, People’s Republic of China.
“We believe that relaxation techniques should be taught to all, especially to those who suffer from chronic or recurring pain. We are glad, therefore, that Dr. Miller offers his special comprehensive approach for dealing with common pain problems such as migraines.
His guided imagery program, Letting Go of Stress, has become an integral part of the University of Cincinnati Headache Center treatment program. Patients have reported a decrease in the occurrence of head, neck, and shoulder pain and often patients report aborting or decreasing the severity of their attacks. This helps reduce the use of analgesic drugs.
Dr. Miller has made a valuable contribution towards pain control by utilizing his simple, straightforward methods involving his own special talents through beautifully-sounding products.”
–– Mary W. Dobrin, Patient Educator and Counselor, and Robert Smith, MD, Professor and Director, Dept. of Family Medicine, University of Cincinnati
“I first met Emmett Miller through his tapes. Several friends had told me that his relaxation tapes were the best available. I ordered a couple and found they really did help me relax.
The sound quality and music alone put them head and shoulders above any other relaxation tapes I’ve listened to. There is something about his voice that makes you want to curl up, put your thumb in your mouth, and rub a soft object against your cheek.”
––Tom Ferguson, MD, Publisher, Medical Self-Care Magazine
“It is not often in this day and age that one gets the urge to write a complimentary letter concerning a ‘product’. Actually, to call Dr. Miller’s CDs ‘products’ is indeed to mislabel them. They are learning tools of the highest order. I have been using Dr. Miller’s products for the past 4 or 5 years, both personally and with the elite athletes with (whom) I work, and I have found them to be excellent.
Not only is their quality, in my opinion, far superior to others on the market – the script is ideal. It leaves the participant free to supply their own, unique style and mental creativity to the process…
They have been an integral part of my sport psychology program with Canadian Olympic and International Athletes…
The ones I have found most useful in working with athletes, aside from those that are specifically written for that purpose, are Writing Your Own Life Script, which is particularly good in allowing the athlete to begin to see themselves acting in congruence with their expressed desires, and the Rainbow Butterfly, which is a marvelous ‘on the way to the competition site’ companion.”
––Dr. Peter Jensen, Sport Psychologist, Canadian Center for High Performance, Ontario
“Emmett Miller is a remarkable individual and a true pioneer in assisting persons to raise their consciousness and to understand what makes them tick. It has been a pleasure to observe the increasing interest and participation in his workshops here in the State of Hawaii.
I have been particularly impressed with his ability to work with individuals in crisis… His calm, soft-spoken approach can soothe the troubled waters and bring about peace.
He has had a profound effect upon the thinking and healing concepts of…health practitioners and other persons within this state.”
––Helen Burnside, Director, Office of Human Resources, City and County of Honolulu, HI, Former Dean, School of Nursing, University of Hawaii
“Dr. Emmett Miller has performed an invaluable service by bringing the theory and techniques of mental imagery to professionals and laymen through his numerous audios and videos.
Dr. Miller’s program, Personal Excellence, demonstrates his extensive experience in the imagery field by highly informative lectures and very effective experiences. Dr. Miller’s unique blend of talents again transforms this interesting material into a deeply moving experience; the script is wonderful, the voice is soothing and unobtrusive, and the music is perfectly attuned to the situation.
I have been active in the field of mental imagery for over twenty years, and I am not aware of better audios and videos than those produced by Dr. Miller. In short, anyone interested in self-care, self-knowledge, and/or self-actualization, will find this album to be a high-yield investment.“

“The surgery went extremely well and one week later I am doing a full day’s work and almost everything that I could do before (except lift heavy objects).
I utilized your recordings to help me visualize a bloodless operative field… and both surgeons and the anesthetist commented spontaneously (I did not tell them…) that they had never seen such a clean field! Indeed, for four separate incisions… they commented that there couldn’t have been half a teaspoon of blood loss.”

This is an invaluable resource and guide for all health care professionals.”
Dr. Miller’s unshakable faith in the potential of everyone to obtain balance, coupled with his considerable finesse when applying techniques from a variety of disciplines, allows him to address the full range of issues that individuals must face in the world today. His genuine caring, love, and respect for humans and their condition create a safe and compassionate atmosphere for any form of self-exploration and change to occur. I admire Emmett Miller and have benefited greatly both personally and professionally from my association with him.”
“To feel good is our human heritage. Dr. Miller shows us how to do this.”
“Seven years ago, an MRI showed I had Multiple Sclerosis. Dr. Miller and I have figured out the fears that bound me, the control needs that exhausted me. I’m learning to believe in the images”

“How very fortunate I feel to have discovered your beautiful work. It was my very first experience with meditation, and it saved my life.

“My physician was critical when I insisted on taking my tape of Successful Surgery and Recovery and playing it as I rode down the hall on the gurney and into the operating room. He changed his mind when he heard how impressed the anesthesiologist was with how relaxed, calm, and confident I was. ‘This is incredible,’ he said. The surgery went fine and I’m certain it was as close to being a positive experience as having a breast removed can possibly be.”
“I’m not very good at just sitting and meditating. My mind wanders all over the place or else I fall asleep. But with Dr. Miller’s tapes, I’m able to relax, focus and use my imagination without difficulty.”
