Can Mindfulness and Meditation Heal Trauma?

Modern neuroscience research show that meditation and mindfulness training reduce the symptoms of trauma and PTSD. Researchers have identified improvement in brain structure and function that are caused by trauma in patients that participate in mindfulness training. 

Emotional regulation, emotional experiencing and memory are key contributors to the symptoms associated with PTSD. Mindfulness reverses these patterns by decreasing the panic and fight or flight reactions of the deep brain. Brain scans confirm that mindfulness meditation is correlated with an increase in gray matter in the hippocampus, a decrease of gray matter in the amygdala, and neuroimaging studies have found that mindfulness meditation also helps to activate the prefrontal cortex.
