Practise - Mindfulness Body Scan Meditation
Show Notes

The body scan meditation is a core practise of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This meditation is done laying down in a comfortable position. With this meditation, you will be guided to systematically attune to the sensations in your body while trying to maintain a sense of openness and self-compassion. 

This type of meditation can support mental wellness, help us to relax, and assist in chronic pain management. In fact, after doing the body scan meditation many people report feeling that their pain is more manageable. Further to that, some people find that after doing the body scan meditation, they are able to relax and fall asleep.
