Ankylosing Spondylitis Victors Association Promotes Meditation

Peter Winslow is a life coach who works with clients to help them attain their goals at his private practice, GoldMind. Outside of work, Peter Winslow stays involved with groups such as the Ankylosing Spondylitis Victors Association, which helps individuals combat pain through life coaching techniques.

Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is a type of arthritis that affects the spine; however, other joints can be affected. It can cause pain if left untreated, as well as stiffness and inflammation. Through the Ankylosing Spondylitis Victors Association, individuals with AS are led through coaching sessions that assist them in pain management strategies without narcotics or other substances.

Among other strategies, the Ankylosing Spondylitis Victors Association promotes meditation for individuals who suffer from this type of chronic pain. Because meditation requires focus, it takes attention away from the pain itself. It is also relaxing, allowing the body to normalize breathing, which can change brain waves and thus decrease pain. Finally, it can help prevent illnesses by promoting sleep and relieving stress.
