Davis (medicine, U. of Miami) begins by setting out the basic science underlying energy techniques in health care. Then fellow physical therapists and related practitioners discuss aspects of body work, mind/body work, and energy work. In the 1997 first edition, they merely described what they did and how, but for the second (no date noted) and third, they also review the literature, discuss the science, and evaluate the quality of evidence. Specific topics include craniosacral therapy, biofeedback, acupuncture theory and acupuncture-like therapeutics in physical therapy, and distance healing.
