Mirror Meditation for Pain

I got a cute tip from the lovely Amanda Zapanta this weekend. She said she’d had a hip injury, too. But instead of focusing on the bum hip, she made sure to focus on the good one, and then imagined herself blowing the sensations of health over to the bad side. She did it all the time on the train, on the couch, in class and the pain went away!

Reminds me of the New Yorker’s article on the use of mirrors to cure phantom limb pain. (A reader followed up that article with a story of their own cure.) Very cool.
