I am on personal retreat at the moment. For the first couple of days I was in quite a lot of tooth pain. Interesting how overwhelming it is.
The pain gave me the opportunity to explore various solutions:
- Meditation on the pain. Bollocks to that. I would rather take an aspirin ...
- Medicine Buddha practice much to my surprise was unhelpful. Oh Buddha!
Yoga, slight distraction if involved in more intense practice. I personally found the mudra helpful
Acupressure. That offered some relief. Again I feel focussing on a pain or elsewhere was a distraction.
- Hypno-therapy. This worked and allowed me to sleep. Good stuff. I find Micheal Sealy very soothing ... I found it difficult to start with but the distancing from the pain did happen ... and then ... zzzz ?
What works for you?
