As someone who has significant chronic pain in almost all parts of my body - external and internal - I wonder about the relatively minor pain of this heat applied to the calf. It is so discreet and is one kind of pain. Until you experience the full range of pain types and in many body regions you don't realize how diverse pain can be. I meditate. Not often enough but several times a week at least. Sometimes, my pain level does diminish significantly but it isn't a result I can depend on. I wonder if I were an "Olympic" level meditator if my pain would diminish significantly and reliably? Maybe in 8,000 more hours of meditation I will know.
