Research environments

The prevalence of pain-dominated functional gastroenterological problems is 10-25 % among school-age children. Our earlier studies with a dance-intervention to girls with psychosomatic problems have shown an increased self-assessed health. Dance and movement can enhance body-awareness which in its turn can affect the self-esteem. This project will study if stomach pain among children aged 9-12 years, can be reduced with dance, yoga and relaxation.
