Library Journal Review

This encyclopedia provides well-written, comprehensive reference information on popular alternative health therapies. The author presents an overview of the basics of alternative health care and describes the specific healing arts from acupressure to yoga in an alphabetical arrangement. Each lengthy entry includes data on background, history, development, function, procedure, applications, and precautions, along with sources to consult. Similar information exists in other works, including Neville and Susan Drury's The Illustrated Dictionary of Natural Health ( LJ 5/1/89) and Brian Inglis and Ruth West's The Alternative Health Guide ( LJ 11/1/83); however, this practical guide furnishes easier-to-use and more in-depth coverage.-- Marilyn Rosenthal, Nassau Community Coll.
