Meditation as Analgesic

An hour of meditation for three days can give sufficient analgesic effect, according to a study. Meditation allows a person to reduce the tension and anxiety, thereby, lessening the pain in the body. It is like accepting and engaging with the pain rather than distancing yourself from the pain by taking pain killers.

After reading such, I have been trying to meditate but I always find myself falling asleep during the course. Sheesh.

At least you were relaxed enough to fall asleep.

When I had a lot of pain in my back I concentrated on the breathing execises I learnt for giving birth. They helped a lot, as you said "accepting and engaging with the pain".
