Abstract

Mind-body medicine focuses on the ways in which emotional, mental, social, spiritual, experiential, and behavioral factors can directly affect health. Mind-Body therapies are the least “alternative” of the integrative therapies. Many cognitive and expressive therapies, such as hypnosis, guided imagery, biofeedback, art, and music have been used since the 1980s to manage procedural pain and anxiety in children with cancer undergoing procedures and are now considered standard approaches in pediatric care. Randomized controlled trials provide evidence for the use of massage and Healing Touch to reduce cancer related anxiety, negative mood states, sleep disturbances, and fatigue, and emerging evidence supports movement therapies for physical conditioning in survivors. Children respond to interventions that foster creative expression and movement. Mind-body therapies are both healing and fun and offer perceived benefit with little risk. This chapter summarizes the evidence for the effectiveness of select mind-body therapies categorized as cognitive, expressive, physical/kinesthetic, sensory, and biofield/energy interventions and proposes applications for use in pediatric oncology. Actual case scenarios provide examples for integrating mind-body therapies into clinical pediatric oncology care.
