Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The text is clearly presented and claims are substantiated by current research.

Throughout the text case studies are presented to exemplify the use of a therapy. In addition the book includes a chapter on complementary therapies for mother and baby.

...I would suggest it is a valuable text for any physical therapist. Indeed, it is written by physical therapists for physical therapists." Denise Rankin-Box, Editor, Complementary Therapies in Nursing and Midwifery
this excellent book, one of the publisher's professional complementary medicine series, clinically based and referenced information has been pulled together and published especially for physiotherapists.

Lateral thinking is producing exciting and revolutionary concepts. As Mr Charman states, physiotherapists are familiar with the mechanical and tensile properties of bone and connective tissue, but with regard to the clinical implications of the liquid crystalline properties of these structures he suggests that we may have to re-think our treatment strategies.

These ideas are the cutting edge of thinking within acupuncture at present, with authors linking the ancient Chinese concept of Qi, or vital energy, and meridian theory into the framework of cellular communication (Ralt, 1999; Ho, 1998).

With regard to individual chapters there is a rich choice.
The most impressive thing about this book is that the techniques and therapies written about by practising physiotherapists for physiotherapists and they are delightfully free of jargon or sales pitches. It does a great service in demystifying the concepts involved. Where research is available, it is clearly cited and where it is not, the authors are honest about it. ...the standard is high and each chapter is a model of clarity with useful further reading listed.

The plentiful illustrations add considerably to the appeal of the book. ... The many case histories found throughout the text are very helpful.

This is a book for 'hands-on' physiotherapists. ... It will be a useful reference book for all physiotherapists, whether they wish to consider the inclusion of the modalities into their practice or simply advise patients which would be appropriate to their needs."Physiotherapy, August 2000
an informative insight as to what each of the above therapies is about."Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies, September 2000
by the chairman of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Bioenergy Therapies this book is a clinically-relevant introduction to the use of complementary therapies in physical therapy. Each chapter provides a research-based overview of the therapy, a working hypothesis and specific research/clinical evidence."SportEx Medicine, January 2000
taught me a lot about other concepts that can be used to deal with the person in pain."In Touch, August 2000

Booknews
Physiotherapists survey the complementary approaches they have incorporated into their practice, offering both clinically-based and referenced information by which other practitioners can experiment. For each therapy, they provide an overview, a working hypothesis, research and clinical evidence, methods of application, and case histories. Among the approaches are the Chakra energy system, reflextherapy, flower essences, and holistic care for the dying and bereaved. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
