(Newser) Walk into select Lloyds Pharmacy locations in the UK complaining of a headache, and you may be more likely to walk out with a Simon & Garfunkel CD than a bottle of painkillers. The pharmacy chain commissioned a study that found 41% of all people suffering persistent pain (and 66% of people aged 16-24) felt better after listening to music, reports the Telegraph.

Now the store is “trialing the use of music within our pain service in some of our pharmacies,” says a company pharmacist. “There are lots of different ways of managing pain, not only with medicines but also with lifestyle changes such as moderate exercise and relaxation,” he says.
