Medical research shows that a person’s nervous system with persistent pain becomes sensitive and is easily activated.   As a result, this increase in nerve sensitivity increases pain. The Relaxation & Meditation for Pain Relief CD can help to retrain the nervous system which will help reduce nerve sensitivity and thereby lessen your pain.

Meditation has shown it can diminish the perception of pain in the brain.   For this reason, it may help treat chronic pain when used in conjunction with your overall  medical care or physical therapy.

By relaxing or meditating you reduce this sensitivity. You create healthy nerve activation in your brain, spinal cord and body that helps decrease pain.  The Relaxation & Meditation for Pain Relief CD provides you with three practices that retrain your nervous system to reduce your nerve sensitivity.  The first is Progressive Relaxation, which guides you to gently contract then relax different muscle groups. This exercise promotes mind-body awareness, the deep relaxation of muscles and the calming of your nervous system.  This track is just over 18 minutes long.

The second is Mindful Body Scan.  This practice directs you to bring a present moment, stable, kind and open awareness to your entire body, progressing from your feet to your head.  This helps reduce nervous system reactivity that increases pain. (Time 20:52)

And finally there is Kindness Meditation.  This practice signals you to repeat key phrases that awaken your heart’s friendliness and goodwill. This focus on kindness reduces pain-amplifying brain activation due to fear, anger and stress. (Time 24:06)

A recent review concluded that several types of meditation produced improvements in blood pressure.   In part, meditation appears to control blood pressure by relaxing the nerve signals that coordinate heart function, tension in blood vessels and the “fight-or-flight” response that increases alertness in stressful situations.  By using the Relaxation & Meditation for Pain Relief CD along with the  Thermal Home Trainer  may help to bring greater awareness and overall relaxation to your mind and body and therefore lessen any pain you are feeling.
