Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Clinic Design
The information you need to choose—or to help create—a complementary/alternative medicine facility
Learn about emerging and traditional treatment techniques such as Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, Reiki, reflexology, prayer, homeopathy, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, and massage. Author Robert Roush analyzes these modalities for effectiveness, and argues for an evidence-based approach for their use. Complementary and Alternative Medicine is useful to consumers and hospitals or clinics considering incorporating these modalities.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine works toward eliminating “camps” in heath care, seeking to establish treatment that has more to do with the patient than promoting one brand of medicine or a singular view of good health. The book presents comprehensive information on alternative medical systems, mind/body interventions, and biological-based, manipulative/body-based, and energy/metaphysical therapies, addressing education, licensing, and regulation needs for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
