As standards of training and practice are raised for complementary medicine, students are coming under increasing pressure to acquire orthodox clinical examination skills. Nic Rowley's book presents the knowledge that is required in a practical and straightforward manner. He includes step-by-step illustrations of each examination technique, and checklists designed to help students and practitioners elicit clinical information from their patients quickly and efficiently.

After being unavailable for some years, this new edition of Hands On, a short and clear guide to clinical skills, will be welcomed by all complementary medical students and practitioners.
