Mindfulness Meditation Trumps Placebo in Pain Reduction: WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Nov. 11, 2015 - Scientists found new evidence that mindfulness meditation reduces pain more effectively than placebo.
"The research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, showed that study participants who practised mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) reported greater pain relief than placebo. Significantly, brain scans showed that MBSR meditation produced very different patterns of activity than those produced by placebo to reduce pain."

THE WISDOM OF MINDFULNESS
The practices I use were designed in the 1970's using meditation to teach methods of relating to thoughts, sensations and emotions by simple observations.
Such practices were used to create a specific Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme as an 8 week secular training course. Developed specifically for people when treatments stopped they were offered an MBSR programme. Since then numerous, scientific studies continue to attest the effectiveness on stress, chronic pain including fibromyalgia, M.E., different forms of arthritis; back pain, substance abuse, cancer, and post cancer treatments, psoriasis, leukaemia, different forms of heart disease and blood pressure. It’s effectiveness has also been demonstrated with various psychological conditions including phobias, anxieties and depression.
Indeed, there are very few people who wouldn't benefit from a committed practice. With this you can experience a reduction of preoccupations and worries, as you accept yourself moment by moment, by moment and breath by mindful breath.
