Complementary Therapies for Rehabilitation is unique in that it provides a comprehensive overview plus detailed coverage of the therapies most relevant to rehabilitation. The largest section of the book covers Manual Body-Based Therapies, which (arguably) are a natural extension of established physical and occupational therapy interventions. This section includes Rolfing, Feldenkrais Method, Alexander Technique, Craniosacral Therapy, Pilates, Trager, and Shiatsu. Movement therapies which are not hands-on (Yoga and Tai Chi) are covered in another section. Separate chapters are devoted to Qi Gong and Magnets, which many therapists use along with more traditional physical agents.
