Mind-Body Strategies for Children
Sadly, many children have repeated painful experiences, or constant pain during their cancer journey. You can help your child learn how to use stories, fantasy, “imagining”, or self-hypnosis to lead him mind away from the pain.
There are many variations on these pain management strategies. Finding the ones that work best for your child’s individual needs and personality is very important. All these techniques need to be planned, learned and practiced before the procedure.
