Recently, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Integrative Medicine (IM) have been broadly developed. IM involves both of CAM and Western Medicine (WM). Integrative Medicine Japan (IMJ) has developed CAM/IM in Japan, and author has managed Shikoku Island division of IMJ. Current topics include the music/art therapy for cancer patients, and hospital art (art in hospital) using convenient masking tape for satisfaction and improved health outcomes. The word “health” is from the Sanskrit language “Swasth”, which is combined of SWA (my) + STH (exist, keep) with meaning of self-existence under self-consciousness. Thus, CAM/IM can contribute the promotion of health.
