Mindfulness Therapy is able to Reduce Pain According to a New Study

Studies have shown that those who live with chronic pain may be able to reduce the symptoms that they experience by simply adopting mindfulness therapy. If you work in homecare or if you work in private nursing, then you will know how important it is to take care of your mental health as well as just your physical health. That is why there are new bespoke care packages being created all the time, to support both mental health in patients as well as the mental health of social workers. The people who participated in the study were asked to try and break down the pain that they felt into various sensory components. They were also asked to try and break down what they felt so that they could describe it through varying sensations. This could include tingling, heat or even tightness.

They were then trained so that they could notice the changes over time and so that they could then adopt the perspective of someone who was observing. The people who took part in the study were also told to try and savour any pleasant experiences, and to also try and take onboard any life-affirming experiences. This would give them a better sense of joy and it would also help them to overcome everyday events. They were taught how to reframe some of the more stressful events, and they were also taught to have a much bigger and better sense of meaning. This would help them to deal with the events that they had to face, and it would also help them to be aware of how they feel and how this can change through simple thought processes.

The result found that those who were able to tune-in more, experienced less chronic pain.
