When people worry about math, the brain feels the pain

Please share

Scientists have shown that when people worry about doing Mathematics they can feel physical pain.

Brain scans have shown that when a person who worries about Maths, prepares to do Maths, for example preparing for a test or exam, then this Mathematic Anxiety stimulates the same areas of the brain as a threat of bodily harm and/or physical pain.

I think a great way to help these people would be to perform distance Reiki sessions for them, especially for the periods they are preparing for the Mathematics test and when actually taking the test.

This would help to ease their Math anxiety and should thus remove the pain.
