Introduction

Interest in mindfulness meditation has increased exponentially over the past three decades resulting in a rapid growth of research exploring how it works and its associated benefits. Many studies have identified consistent neural changes in the brain following mindfulness practice and noted a number of benefits, including pain reduction. Chronic pain has become a global health problem, causing disability and reduced quality of life while also posing a significant therapeutic challenge. Mindfulness, as a multifaceted, non-pharmacological option for pain relief, has therefore sparked great interest globally. Through the wonder of neuroplasticity, mindfulness has been shown to have a direct impact on our physiology and our psychology, resulting in a calmer and more accepting disposition towards pain and life itself.
