    Mindfulness training has been reported as beneficial for reducing symptoms in several chronic pain conditions, including headache (1,2). One potential mechanism for the therapeutic effects of mindfulness may be a reduction in pro-inflammatory cytokine (PIC) levels. Cytokines are regulatory proteins secreted by numerous cells including immune cells in the periphery and microglia in the Central Nervous System (CNS).
