The Placebo Effect in Manual Therapy von Fulton, Brian

Numerous studies have made the ‘placebo effect’ the most-studied
healing phenomenon known to mankind.
In The Placebo Response in Manual Therapy Brian Fulton
has drawn on these studies to provide an essential resource for all
practitioners who work on a one to one basis with their clients.
Those manual therapists who learn from this book will find that
their new understanding can lead to improved clinical outcomes for their clients.
The Placebo Response in Manual Therapy presents a knowledge-based
approach to augmenting your patients’ own healing systems.
It explains how to:
maximize the placebo response in your patients, using knowledge from 60 years of research,
“turn on” an individual’s inner healing system, even with challenging patients,
increase your success rate and your patients’ health outcomes within your current methods of practice,
use the client-practitioner relationship as a ‘technique’ for improving health
outcomes in your patients based on research concerning the therapeutic encounter.
The placebo effect of touch is an important factor in the effectiveness of all manual therapy treatments.
However most manual therapists are not taught how to make use of the placebo
response and many remain unaware of its potential and unsure of how to harness it as part of their therapy.
This book is for them.
With forewords by Leon Chaitow and Ruth Werner.
