Pain relief

Dr Ainslie Meares and Ian Gawler have both reported on dramatic positive benefits observed when people with chronic pain learn to meditate. Mindfulness meditation has been found to be associated with a significant reduction in pain, fatigue, and sleeplessness along with improved function, mood and general health for people with chronic pain syndromes.
