Complementary Therapies – The Essential Guide
Complementary therapy, or alternative therapy as it is sometimes called, is a term used to describe a range of treatments that treats the individual in a holistic way, treating the whole person not just the symptom that is troubling them. The belief is that a person is well if their body, mind and environment are all balanced. It is estimated that around 30% of the population in the UK use complementary therapy and this figure continues to rise.
Complementary Therapies – The Essential Guide, by Antonia Chitty and Victoria Dawson, published on 1st January 2011, brings together expert advice, the latest research and facts about the most commonly used complementary therapies.
This practical guide covers acupuncture, aromatherapy, chiropractice, herbalism and Chinese medicine, homeopathy, hypnotherapy, massage, osteopathy, reiki and reflexology. For each therapy there is information on its history, what the treatment involves and what it can help treat. There are also sections in each chapter on how each therapy can be useful if you are pregnant, elderly or a parent wanting treatment for your child.
Both authors are experienced in the subject. Antonia Chitty investigates and writes about complementary therapies on a regular basis for national health charities; Victoria Dawson is a qualified hypnotherapist, life coach and Reiki Master with an interest in all complementary therapies. They say, ‘More and more people in the UK are turning to complementary therapies in order to relieve stress, relax or relieve some form of illness. The book looks at the most commonly used complementary therapies in detail.’
The selection of therapies available can be baffling to someone who has no prior knowledge of the techniques and what they are beneficial for. If you are looking for information about where to start, Complementary Therapies – The Essential Guide will help you to find out more about the most common therapies currently in use and how they may benefit you or your family.
