Slow breathing can reduce chronic pain

Tuesday 16 February 2010

CloudsAbout.com's Carol and Richard Eustice report the results of research into the benefits of slow breathing for people with chronic pain such as Fibromyalgia:

Slow Breathing Can Reduce Chronic Pain

Controlled breathing at a slowed rate can significantly reduce feelings of pain, according to researchers at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center and published in Pain.

Chronic pain patients, especially fibromyalgia patients, reported less pain while breathing slowly -- unless they were overwhelmed by negative feelings, sadness, or depression.

Controlling breathing is something you can do, as much or as little as you like. Give it a try and then write on our forum to share your experience.
