Feedback eases pain

The New Scientist says that by looking at your body, you can cure certain kinds of pain. The feedback corrects the mind's distorted image of the body.

I've said for a long time: Self reflection cures a lot of the anguish and anger we feel. By looking at our souls and correcting our self-image to what is really there, we actually become calmer, even if our self-image then becomes less 'ideal'. The pain eases.

Nice to see Science finally backing up mysticism. :-)
