Alternative Therapies is a guide to many of the therapies and techniques that are part of the alternative or complementary field of medicine.
Many people are becoming increasingly disillusioned with their lifestyles, and with conventional medicine, and are seeking greater wellbeing through alternative therapies. Some of these therapies are thousands of years old and were trusted methods of treatment before modern pharmaceutical development. Many are acknowledged by modern doctors and counsellors to be effective treatments that are complementary to conventional practice -- relieving stress and promoting good health -- while some therapies are complete methods in themselves, involving both diagnosis and treatment.
This book provides an enlightening introduction to some of the most well-known and widely practised treatments.
