Reviews

"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."
