Abstract

<p>In the fields of psychosomatic medicine, the number of case reports and evidence reports using Kampo medicine has been increasing, and many psychosomatic physicians are interested in the efficacy of Kampo therapy. But in clinical practice, Kampo is used still within the share of evidence based medicine (EBM) or simply used as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) among the psychosomatic physicians. Thus, there is little opportunity to discuss about Kampo therapy as a psychosomatic therapy. When we use Kampo therapy psychosomatically, we would get merits as follows. 1 : Strengthening and facilitating the therapeutic relationship through the examinations. 2 : Efficacy as a Biological Response Modifier (BRM). 3 : We can use somatic approach, when the case is difficult to treat with the psychic or verbal approach. 4 : Usefulness of reducing psychotropic drugs. 5 : Synergy effect by combining with the traditional psychosomatic approach. In this paper, while explaining about these five benefits along with the case presentation, we would like to outline the Kampo treatment as a psychosomatic therapy.</p>
