Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a collaborative effort to address integrative pain medicine, involving authors from a variety of complementary and alternative medicine backgrounds. … is designed to be accessible for a wide audience, including healthcare consumers (patients) and providers (clinicians). … valuable addition to the bookshelf of any healthcare provider practicing in the field of pain management. … Pain management clinicians will likely find this book to be of particular value as they consider expanding their scope of services to include a broader array of CAM techniques." (Felise S. Zollman, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2008)

"Andrew Weil praises this book as the ‘definitive guide to integrative pain management.’ … Clearly, the subject is appealing. … This multiauthored volume covers most relevant topics, from basic pain concepts to legal issues. Its main emphasis is a broad outline of how alternative treatments like meditation, hypnotherapy, tai chi, yoga, osteopathy, chiropractic, massage, and herbal medicines might help individuals with pain." (JAMA, Vol. 300 (11), 2008)
