This audio will block the the nociceptors for around 1-2 hours.

A nociceptor (“pain receptor”) is a sensory neuron that responds to damaging or potentially damaging stimuli by sending “possible threat” signalsto the spinal cord and the brain. If the brain perceives the threat as credible, it creates the sensation of pain to direct attention to the body part, so the threat can hopefully be mitigated; this process is called nociception.
