Publishers Weekly, 1995-08-14 Despite the hokey headings (``Juice Therapy: Putting the Squeeze on Good Health''; ``Reflexology: You Can't Beat the Feet''), this volume offers a clear, concise introduction to a wide range of complementary healing practices from around the world. Part I explains 16 modalitiesæ from acupressure to yogaæin simple terms that make accessible even such esoteric concepts as the relationship between quantum physics and Ayurveda. Sidebars offer additional pointers, from instructions on making ghee to a list of questions to ask a homeopath. Part II presents an impressive array of do-it-yourself natural remedies for 163 common health problemsæas well as caveats on when to seek professional advice. Under ``Burns,'' for example, after a subheading entitled ``See Your Medical Doctor When...'' are suggestions for treatments by practitioners of seven modalities, including aromatherapy, Ayurveda and vitamin and mineral therapy. An ``Illustrations'' section depicts acupressure and reflexology points, massage strokes and exercises. Part III, not seen by PW, includes resources and index. Author tour. (Sept.)
