Introducing the Healing Buddies Comfort Kit™ Mobile App:
Coping with pain is difficult, especially for kids. But there are many methods available to manage their pain beyond taking medication. Scientific studies demonstrate that kids can learn techniques to harness their body and mind’s capacities, relying on their own internal system to heal naturally.
The Healing Buddies Comfort Kit™ is an easy-to-use app that applies several integrative medicine techniques adapted for kids that are quick and effective for symptom control. By combining kid-friendly activities and exercises that teach self-care skills, the Healing Buddies Comfort Kit™ offers an interactive, virtual way to learn how to manage common symptoms like pain, worries, nausea, fatigue and trouble sleeping.
The Healing Buddies Comfort Kit™ is a collaborative effort between Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Ridgeview Medical Center, and DesignWise Medical. The techniques included are designed by leaders in the field of pediatric Integrative medicine and have been tested for years in several leading pediatric hospitals. Available for iPad, iPhone and other Apple platforms, our hope is that this app will help kids get back to doing what they do best – being kids.
