Researchers in the USA, led by Dr Miranda van Tilburg, have revealed how relaxation CDs help children to imagine away intense pain.

30 children between 6 and 15 years of age volunteered. Half received standard treatment for pain while the other half received 20 minute relaxation recordings which they played every day for 8 weeks. 26.7% of the children who received standard pain relief experienced reduced pain compared to an impressive 73.3% of children who used the recordings. Additionally, after 6 months over 65% of the relaxation recordings children were still well and happy.
