Book Description

On the threshold of the new millennium, more and more people are turning to complementary and alternative therapies in times of illness, crisis or trauma.

Holistic therapies treat us at every level: physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual. But it can be confusing. Which therapy is best for you?

This comprehensive handbook provides information on thirty-six therapies, from aromatherapy through homoeopathy, to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nineteen lesser- known therapies are also briefly described. Details of training, practitioners, healing and residential centres, and helplines can be found in the Directory.

"Irish Guide to Complementary and Alternative Therapies” is invaluable for all who require, practise or are interested in complementary medicine and therapies.

Irish Guide to Complementary and Alternative Therapies, by Lucy Costigan (Wolfhound).
"If you're convinced that you need active balancing, polarity therapy or past-life regression, this book will tell you where you can get it - and, more importantly, what it is. Lucy Costigan, a practising therapist and, by the sounds of it, an extremely well-balanced person, offers a path through the maze of alternative medicine, with enough phone numbers, case studies, details of training and suggestions for further reading to satisfy the most avid New Age activist."
