One of the chief insights in this book is that physical pain and our mental states go hand in hand. Pain is a physiological response to something wrong with our bodies, certainly, but equally important in this equation is how we frame the experience of pain in our minds.
This book sets out many techniques on how to frame, or re-frame, our experience of pain. This is helpful for alleviating our pain level. Even sitting still with our pain, allowing it to happen, not fighting it or judging it, is helpful, and a great start.
At the start of the book I felt the author was trying a little too hard to sell the benefits of mindfulness, by providing examples of extraordinary successes. But the remainder of the book is about practical step-by-step mindfulness and body scans, to help anyone because more aware of his or her body and its feelings.
