Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A comprehensive selection of the main therapies currently in use in the UK are included, as are many of the more alternative modalities, and some more obscure therapies are included…This is certainly a useful quick reference book for those who wish to find out what a specific therapy involves and what evidence (in peer reviewed literature) there is as to its efficacy and safety." Radionic Journal, July 2009 "The aim to provide an evidence-based ‘A-Z’ of complementary therapies is hugely ambitious. The present guide has its strengths and weaknesses. One strength is its comprehensiveness: it includes most therapies I know, and even some that I had never heard of. Each of them is dealt with in a concise and factual manner." A-Z of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, January 2010

"This is a great little book that provides an introduction to as wide a range of complementary and alternative therapies as possible... It is great to see such a well-referenced and honest approach to complementary therapy in clinical practice."

Nursing Standard, January 2010
