Zen meditation a centuries-old practice that can provide mental, physical and emotional balance may reduce pain according to Université de Montréal researchers. A new study in the January edition of Psychosomatic Medicine reports that Zen meditators experienced an 18 percent reduction in pain intensity -- both in and out of a meditative state compared to non-meditators. Joshua A. Grant, a doctoral student in the Department of Physiology, co-authored the paper with Pierre Rainville, a professor and researcher at the Université de Montréal. The main goal of their study was to examine whether trained meditators perceived pain differently than non-meditators.
