How to Manage Your Pain Through Meditation: Meditation Techniques to Reduce Pain

Generally speaking, there are two types of pain: acute and chronic. Acute pain is a pain that you experience because of injury or disease and lasts for few days or few weeks at most. Chronic pain is the pain that lasts for a long time. One of the common ways to manage pain is through pain killers. However, if you have chronic pain and if you are using pain killers for a long time, you might be addicted to the prescription drugs. Using prescription drugs for a long time has many negative effects.

Meditation is basically a technique to manage psychological, emotional, mental problems as well as reach higher level of awareness. However, meditation can also be very effective in treatment of physical disorders. Studies have suggested that meditation is very useful in chronic pain management. Research on Mindfulness meditation has shown that mindfulness meditation has positive effects on people suffering from chronic back pain, spinal injury, herniated disc, fibromyalgia and migraines. Mindfulness meditation has been found to increase pain tolerance level in the people suffering from chronic pain.

Meditation Techniques to Manage Pain

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation is a meditation method where you constantly become aware about who you are, what you are without being involved with the emotions, feelings, sensations arising inside you and the situations outside you.

As mentioned above, Mindfulness meditation has shown to be very effective in managing chronic pain. Since the meditation method requires you to meditate on your inner self without being involved with your sensations and situations, your pain tolerance level will substantially increase. Instead of seeking way out from the intolerable pain, we will learn to love with the pain. Thus ending our pain and suffering.

Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana Meditation, the Buddhist meditation system, was lost for thousands of years until Burmese monk Sayagyi U Ba Khin rediscovered it. Satya Narayan Goyenka learned Vipassana meditation from Sayagyi U Ba Khin than established a non-profit organization to promote Vipassana Meditation. When Satya Narayan Goyenka went to Sayagyi U Ba Khin, he was suffering from migraine and wanted a solution to his pain. After doing Vipassana Meditation for sometime, Goyenka discovered this his pain vanished. If you are suffering from chronic pain, find a Vipassana Center and do Vipassana Meditation. Unlike other meditation methods, where you have to spend money to learn meditation, Vipassana Meditation centers offer a 10 day free residential meditation program.
