Pharmacotherapies are the most common types of treatments used to manage the various symptoms experienced by burn patients. There remains great unresolved need for symptom relief and therefore, the necessity for development of additional therapeutic options. Methods of distraction have been used to combat pain in burn patients, particularly virtual reality, with successes attributed to the ability to draw upon conscious attention, leaving less cognition available to concentrate on nociceptive input. Healing touch, touch therapy, and Reiki are all classified as biofield therapies, and are associated with relaxation, decreased anxiety, improved well-being, and healing. These therapies may also tap into the usefulness of distraction to reduce pain. Guided imagery and music therapy have also been used in the orthopedic, cardiac surgery, and gynecology fields to address periprocedural and recovery pain and anxiety.
