More and more people are experiencing the healing power of alternative medicine, from hypnosis to homeopathy. This encyclopaedia and guide is designed to help the reader to take advantage of these increasingly popular therapies with confidence, by explaining the various new and ancient healing arts in precise and simple language. It deals with the facts, the risks, the rewards, the theory and the science behind them. Definitions and explanations of the different therapies are accompanied by advice on the most suitable for certain health conditions, how to find a qualified practitioner locally and what to ask about qualifications, licensing, treatment, philosophy and methods. The author is a journalist, health educator and private consultant.

From Library Journal:

This encyclopedia provides well-written, comprehensive reference information on popular alternative health therapies. The author presents an overview of the basics of alternative health care and describes the specific healing arts from acupressure to yoga in an alphabetical arrangement. Each lengthy entry includes data on background, history, development, function, procedure, applications, and precautions, along with sources to consult. Similar information exists in other works, including Neville and Susan Drury's The Illustrated Dictionary of Natural Health ( LJ 5/1/89) and Brian Inglis and Ruth West's The Alternative Health Guide ( LJ 11/1/83); however, this practical guide furnishes easier-to-use and more in-depth coverage.
