Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined! Practising self-care techniques like mindfulness and self-hypnosis can help relax, de-stress and focus attention away from the discomfort. This helps as our brain factors in stress levels and our emotional state when generating subjective pain that we are experiencing.
