About Dr. Jerry Epstein

Dr. Gerald N. Epstein (1935-2019) was one of the foremost practitioners of integrative healthcare for healing and transformation. A psychiatrist and pioneer in the field of mind-body medicine, Dr. Jerry was one of the first mental health practitioners to identify how the body mirrors the mind, the mind’s overall influence on the body, and our innate ability to heal. In 1974, under the tutelage of Madame Colette Aboulker–Muscat, Dr. Jerry incorporated therapeutic and medicinal uses of the imagination into his therapy practice, using mental imagery as a tool to heal physical and mental ailments.

Books by Dr. Gerald Epstein


I am a student at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America and was reading your book Healing Visualizations last night. Besides it being resourceful and inspiring for the studies, on a more personal note I would like to thank you for visualizations on anger and self-doubt, which helped me a lot to deal with those feelings head on.

Thank you so much for your beautiful work Healing Visualizations. I have found it to be an essential and fantastic part of my education here at the Academy and has given me a new perspective on the use, beauty, and spirit of visualization in healing. I so hope you are able to come to our symposium this year. Thank you.

This week at church, we celebrated the feast of the Epiphany; and of how the Magi were led by the Star. Thank you for being the star that has guided me toward many quiet epiphanies. You have been a great gift in my life. With deep gratitude.
