Absolutely invaluable for any nurse, therapist or physician who is exploring ways of ensuring that patients receiving cancer therapy are in the best of health for a successful outcome. Added to a thorough evidence-based text on many non-invasive interventions is perhaps the best overview of cancer and its treatments I have read for a long time. A book that is long overdue and deserves to be widely read.

An evidence-based, user-friendly "how to..." book, both for the experienced and new complementary therapist working in cancer and palliative care. It will be helpful to other healthcare professionals too - to see how complementary therapies can make a difference and contribute to integrated care. The authors have generously shared their knowledge, expertise and experience.

As a devotee of complementary therapies, I loved this book. It offers an overview of how three complementary therapies integrate with modern healthcare, and will be useful for anyone who wants to learn about the therapies available, how they work, their evidence base and how they can be incorporated into NHS treatment (...) I recommend this book to anyone involved in cancer care and management.

This book is incredibly informative with lots of good theoretical information setting out the requirements of a holistic therapy provision in a medical setting. The book also offers an incredibly helpful set of tools that can be used alone or in conjunction with each other for both patients and carers to ease their cancer journey. A book that I would recommend every therapist have on their shelf.

It provides an evidence-based foundation for complementary therapists working in cancer care settings. International in its scope, the book provides essential information about the ethical and professional context in which therapists can practise and vital facts regarding medical treatment and side effects...Cancer care is a special area and is not for every therapist. However, Ann and Peter together with their collaborators, have put together a text that I believe is of value to every therapist and I commend it to you.
