“…It is noted that no study conducted and published in Brazil reported the use of CAM as Reiki and, consequently, none on the understanding and acceptance of CAM for pregnant women who were diagnosed with diabetes. The demographic data found in this study corroborate studies showing CAM users in Malaysia 6,12 where the average age, educational level and socioeconomic status are similar for pregnant women seeking it. This is contradictory in developed countries where middle-aged pregnant women with higher education seem to look more for CAM, as in Switzerland 1 and Australia.…”

“…A Aromaterapia, historicamente, tem sido praticada por diversos profissionais de saúde, dentre eles, os enfermeiros. Há registros de que Florence Nightingale, durante a Guerra da Crimeia, aplicava óleo essencial de Lavanda na fronte dos soldados feridos com o intuito de promover tranquilidade (28). Os enfermeiros são pioneiros na utilização de Práticas Integrativas e Complementares; possuem respaldo em todo o território brasileiro através de portarias do Ministério da Saúde, que regulamenta as Práticas, e do próprio Conselho Federal de Enfermagem (6,29).…”
