Meditation has been shown to not only contribute to a decrease in pain, but also to help with other associated issues such as depression and poor quality of life. By stabilising the mind and reducing stress, the body can begin to process pain in a more measured and manageable way.

- The problem
Life with chronic pain can be extremely challenging.
Often an “invisible illness”, chronic pain can have a knock-on effect in our relationships, careers and ability to enjoy life, but despite this it is still often underestimated by wider society.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the experience of chronic pain can lead to attendent feelings of depression and anxiety, and it appears that pharmaceuticals - although valuable in some cases - aren’t a holistic solution.
According to BBC News, GPs in England prescribed 23.8 million opioid-based painkillers in 2017, the equivalent of 2,700 items every hour. This demonstrates both the widespread nature of pain amongst our population, and our over reliance on opioid medication (which has high addiction potential) to solve it.
Another study into low-back pain discovered that this extremely common issue is mistreated on a global scale - including the use of unnecessary surgery and dangerously addictive painkillers.
