Treatment of Functional Abdominal Pain in Children:Evaluation of Relaxation/Guided Imagery and Chamomile Tea as Therapeutic Modalities

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of relaxation, with or without guided imagery, for treating children with functional abdominal pain. The study will evaluate a child's ability to decrease the amount of pain with these techniques to allow continuation of normal daily activities at home and at school. The hypothesis is that these relaxation techniques will help decrease reports of abdominal pain and improve levels of activity.
