Perceptions of other integrative health therapies by Veterans with pain who are receiving massage

Carol Elizabeth Fletcher, PhD, RN, et al.

Veterans are seeking complementary and integrative health (CIH) therapies in addition to conventional care for issues such as chronic pain and posttraumatic stress disorder. In response, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has begun offering therapies such as massage and yoga, but as with any new program there are challenges. Veterans benefit when other Veterans describe their experiences to clarify the successes and problems that Veterans have when obtaining, or trying to obtain, CIH therapies through the VA. Understanding Veterans??? experiences is essential if the VA wishes to successfully provide CIH therapies to Veterans.
