Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joanne K. Singleton, PhD, RN, CS (Pace University)
Description: Based on the National Institutes of Medicine, this book is an overview of commonly used therapies. The stage is set for the discussion of these therapies by first reviewing issues around their use and responsibilities of providers related to their patients who may be using them.
Purpose: The goal is to make health and healing available to both providers and their patients.
Audience: This book is aimed at healthcare professionals and students within these disciplines. The author uses book reviews to form credible presentation of the topics discussed.
Features: Within each of the seven NIH categories, reference based information is provided on popular therapies. This creates a useful structure for the book. The section on manual therapies, a category often given short shrift, is particularly well done and highly inclusive. The chapter headings make this a very user friendly resource to help describe the therapies beyond traditional formats and the book is embellished with illustrations where appropriate.
Assessment: This book is packed with useful information. Unlike other books in this field that may focus on an overview of one of the complementary therapies, the author of this book takes them all on. This is an excellent choice for an overview reference on complementary therapies.
