Body awareness therapy for patients with fibromyalgia and chronic pain

Gard, Gunvor LU (2005) In Disability and Rehabilitation 27(12). p.725-728
Abstract
There are several therapies designed to increase body awareness. They are commonly known as body awareness therapies ( BAT) and include Basic BAT, Mensendieck and Feldenkrais therapy. A focus on emotions is important in all these therapies. In this article the aim and development of Basic BAT is described together with evaluations of treatments including Basic BAT. Multidisciplinary studies have shown that Basic BAT can increase health-related quality of life and cost-effectiveness. However Basic BAT needs to be further studied in relation to patients with. fibromyalgia ( FM) and chronic pain. Studies so far indicate that Basic BAT has positive effects.
