Ideal for qualified massage and bodywork therapists wanting to expand their knowledge and skills, this unique resource brings together the most common forms of bodywork with a focus on this important and challenging area of practice. Emphasizing the need for safe practice, this book illustrates how massage can be safely adapted for patients and dispels some misconceptions about working with people who have cancer. Key topics include integrative and collaborative working, the psychological aspects of bodywork, therapists as teachers, professionalism, the control of symptoms, working with vulnerability, potency in practice, and the skilful combination of voice and touch."This is an excellent book - much needed to the field, when the need for evidence base is becoming ever more important for professionals working in this field. It is an inspiration to have views and ideas from so many different professionals - and already my students have benefitted. It is definitely a book to put on the essential reading list for any courses in cancer and palliative care for complementary therapists. This book is highly readable yet offers in-depth information on the topic."Mary Atkinson, Complementary Therapist/ Lecturer“Written by experienced therapists working in this field this book will appeal o qualified therapists who would like to expand their knowledge and skills….With over a dozen experienced contributors to the text...Clear black and white photographs, various charts and text boxes make for easy information access.”Embody Magazine. Autumn 2007“The editors have assembled an interesting collection of articles by acknowledged expert practitioners, thus validating the text….The design of the book makes it easy to ‘dip into’ for specific topics. Each chapter is tightly structured and sectioned, taking the reader from an initial abstract through to a summary and references…This text will be a valuable addition to our Therapists’ Library and we would strongly recommend it to healthcare professionals interested in working towards integration”Pat Bryden and Janet Thogersen, Complementary Therapy Coordinators, Bradford Cancer Support.Nursing & Therapies News, December 2007
