Objective: To synthesize the knowledge production related to the use of Integrative and Complementary Practices (PIC) in the treatment of occupational stress. Method: Integrative Review, which had as its guiding question: what is the production of knowledge related to the use of PIC in the treatment of occupational stress published between 2003 and 2013?. The data was collected in the Lilacs and Medline databases using combinations of the following descriptors: "stress" with "complementary therapies", "floral medicines", "mind-body therapies", "sensory therapies through arts", "spiritual therapies, and "therapies under study". Results: 48 articles were selected. The sorting of titles, summaries, reading assessment, and evaluation of complete texts were subsequently performed in stages. Out of all selected articles, 07 articles were analyzed and the following categories built: PIC as stress reducing therapies and other diseases; the use of PIC in the treatment of occupational stress; and Credibility in the use of PIC. Conclusions: The integrative complementary practices have been used not only to reduce stress but also in reducing levels of anxiety and depressive symptoms, and relief of pain and binge eating. The main PIC mentioned were: MSBR, CBRS, Kouk Sun Do, acupuncture, meditation, controlled breathing, yoga, and polarity therapy. The major cited reasons for its use were: reaching spiritual well-being and serenity, mood and sleep improvement, and compassion for others.
