Who should use this treatment?
The home-based treatment is for children between 6 and 18 years of age with chronic abdominal pain due to irritable bowel syndrome (or functional abdominal pain, which is more or less the same as irritable bowel syndrome). You can only use the treatment if a physician has advised you to use these exercises. So everyone should have had contact with a physician before starting the self-hypnosis exercises.
