Hi guy's Im wondering if anyone else has tried Mindfulness for pain management. Ive just finished a 8week introduction in mindfulness. Ive always had a interest in meditating. The course has changed my relationship too the pain. It has saved me and really work's. Its run by Breathworks. Im doing the next course a 8week mindfulness for Health. All about dealing with Chronic pain. I have RR MS Fybromyalgia & neck damage. I can say hand on heart this course has helped me in so many ways. I now deal & cope with the pain. Also Head Space is a amazing app that you can download. Breathworks & Head Space really do help. Again I hope wverybody is well. Have a Merry Christmas. Donna :)

Hi Pleasance, im mindfulness is helping in so many ways. Its given me a calmer mind and I now relate too the pain in a totally different way. Breathworks run a introduction too mindfulness course in Shipley plus other places. Also search for Breathworks & Head space on the phone. Headspace is amazing. Im st a stage now where I can lay even in pain doing a app (meditation) #midfullness. I can soften the pain, infact I just refer to it as a feeling now & not pain. Please give them a try. They are life changing. Donna:)

If you have a smart phone download the Breathworks app. Its the full 8week course (meditations) also you can purchase the "Mindfulness for Health" book that goes with the course. Its buy Vidyamala Burch & Danny Pennman. The breathworks app is free . The book you should be able to buy anywhere thats £13.99. Hope this help. Mindfulness has saved me. Learning about Primary and Secondary suffering/pain really helps. I can turn into my pain and soften it, let my breath massage my body. Please please give it a go. Donna 😊
