Wellness and Holistic Physical Therapy (2024) is 'the' textbook for DPT programs to incorporate into their curriculum to ensure their students meet the wellness-related objectives of CAPTE, APTA's Normative Model of Professional PT Education, and APTA's Minimum Skills of Entry-Level PT Graduates, and are thus prepared to provide holistic physical therapy to maximize patient outcomes.

Woven throughout the textbook are case scenarios, images of mock patient, and lots of color to engage the reader and enhance the learning experience. Another noteworthy feature of this textbook is it provides up to the minute evidence-based information via over 1200 references.

This textbook incorporates APTA Guide's 3.0 and Healthy People's Leading Health Indicators. Further, APTA's Patient / Client Management Model is enhanced with holistic tools such as the Stages of Wellness, Brief Teach, Guided Exploration, and Motivational Education.

Entire chapters are dedicated to patient specific conditions and comorbidities that can greatly impact a patient's ability to participate in and benefit from physical therapy are thoroughly examined, including mental illness comorbidities, obesity, addictions to "self-medications" (e.g., tobacco, vaping, alcoholism), and poor nutritional intake. As importantly, interventions within the scope of PT practice are explored.

Complementary interventions (e.g., Tai Chi, cupping, acupressure) are examined and applied to the provision of physical therapy. Each complementary intervention is fully referenced and examples of their successful use by physical therapists are provided.

Finally, several chapters lend themselves to small group assignments, including holistic physical therapy case scenarios, community wellness projects, and the creation of a 'holistic physical therapy website.'
