Complementary practitioners, like conventional doctors, need to know how to examine patients and how to interview them on their past medical history. This book uses layman's terms and photographs to show the basic examination routines for the major body systems. The second section of the book takes the reader through an interpretation of the findings. The emphasis throughout is on a simple, nontechnical approach suitable for an unqualified reader.

As a concise, clear guide to clinical skills, this reissue of Hands On will be welcomed by all complementary medical students and practitioners.

Nic Rowley trained in medicine at Cambridge University and the Royal Free Hospital and has practiced as a holistic doctor in the UK, France, and Denmark. He now leads the project Heartwood, which aims to produce a suite of distance learning courses and programs as part of its mission to promote excellence in herbal medicine education.
