Meditation for Pain is helpful for retirees who often suffer from many aches and pains.
Regardless of whether you have small aches and pains associated with aging, or pains due to some injury or illness - Meditation can help.
People who listen to the expression of "mind over matter" will easily understand that the mind and meditation is great for pain relief.
The mind can play a significant role in pain management.
According to Fadel Zeidan, PhD, lead author of a pain and meditation study and post-doctoral research fellow at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center:
“We found a big effect – about a 40% reduction in pain intensity and a 57% reduction in pain unpleasantness. Meditation produced a greater reduction in pain than even morphine or other pain-relieving drugs, which typically reduce pain ratings by about 25 per cent.”LOOK at all the products for Pain and Meditation from Amazon.

I love Silva Healing programs... just trying to show you there are many using meditation for pain and it can be helpful!
If there wasn't a market for pain and meditation audios, there wouldn't be so many on Amazon right? People are turning to meditation for pain relief -- which, in time, helps lessen their dependency on prescription drugs.
Here are some meditations for Pain relief :
Concentration Technique: Concentration technique can lessen your pain by keeping your mind away from pain. Generally, a pain is still more exaggerated because you focus on this. If your concentration is focused somewhere else, the pain becomes manageable.
I know this sounds odd.. but consider it for a moment. If you sit and shut your eyes, and keep repeating a mantra like
Every day, in Every Way,
I'm feeling stronger and stronger...
repeat in your head, over and over and over... get your mind away from the pain and into a gentle rhythm, as you drift off into meditation.
Visualization: Visualization is also considered as self-hypnosis. Creating a image of pain in mind and imagine that it moving away from our body.
Silva Healing programs do this... through a Guided Meditation, she tells you exactly what to do. When you listen over and over, the technique becomes like breathing. You just automatically "go there" and can begin to self heal yourself. Listen to some of the videos on this page... amazing!
