Complementary Therapy

"I wanted to make sure I was doing everything I could to take care of my body during treatment"

Recommended New Zealand book Complementary Therapies for Cancer by Professor Shaun Holt contains evidence-based advice on many complementary therapies such as acupuncture, massage and mind- body interventions like meditation, yoga and hypnosis. It examines the effectiveness of herbal remedies including St John’s Wort and ginger, and examines many commonly-used therapies which are unlikely to help, or can even cause harm.
