There is a considerable and increasing interest in research related to complementary therapies to establish a base of research results which will support practice. However, not all therapies can be treated the same way, either from the same perspective of what health and treatment are, or channelled through the process of randomized, controlled trials. This book analyzes the key questions often asked and the controversies debated in complementary medicine research, and offers clear guidance written by experts in this field.
