Your mood, thoughts, and emotions can affect your perception of pain and even your ability to heal. In fact, your past life experiences influence your current physical challenges: “your biography influences your biology.” While treatments like medication and physical therapy can be enormously beneficial to the body, to maximize pain relief, it’s necessary to take advantage of the mind’s healing abilities. This book offers a revolutionary new treatment approach, mindfulness-based chronic pain management, that helps you harness your mind’s power to quiet your pain and put you in control.

Mindfulness practice, which includes stationary meditations, movement meditations, mindful art, and other strategies, will help you:

  • Understand how emotions and thoughts affect physical symptoms
  • Reverse the debilitating effects of some chronic pain conditions
  • Prevent pain from becoming chronic or long-term
  • Lift the anxiety and depression that may accompany chronic pain
Publisher Reviews
  • "Dr. Jackie's book provides a holistic approach to help people manage and cope with their daily pain. The Mindfulness Solution to Pain provides hope to anyone who is suffering and losing function as a result of constant pain.”
    —Sol Stern, MD, chairman of Palliative Care at Halton Healthcare Services in Oakville, ON, Canada

  • The Mindfulness Solution to Pain is a very practical and valuable addition to the toolbox of strategies for patients living with pain.”
    —Roman D. Jovey, MD, past president of the Canadian Pain Society

  • “So often, chronic pain can be a life-destroying event that the medical world seems ill-equipped to manage. This is a wonderful guidebook for those who want strategies that do not simply make their pain better, but make themselves better with their pain.”
    —Pam Squire, MD, assistant clinical professor at the University of British Columbia

  • “This book presents an attractive compilation of procedures to try. There are so many patients in pain.”
    —Ronald Melzack, Ph.D.

  • “Chronic pain is common, disabling, and exhausting. Pain medications provide partial relief, but may not improve function or overall quality of life. What I like most about this book is that the authors embrace conventional approaches to pain management, but recognize that often this is not enough to allow pain sufferers to get on with their lives. Gardner-Nix and Costin-Hall provide an important alternative—mindfulness and meditation techniques that can revitalize the lives of those suffering with chronic pain. The Mindfulness Solution to Pain is presented with clarity and elegance, and I highly recommend this book to all chronic pain sufferers who need a boost to get their lives back on track.”
    —Dwight Moulin, MD, Earl Russell Chair of Pain Management at the University of Western Ontario
