This book is an exhaustive contribution to the revelation of the therapeutic application and impact of the arts in health. While delving deeply in the anthropological past of the muses, the data is nonetheless held to scientific rigor. As each modality is dissected, from visual art therapy to poetry to aroma, what emerges is a holistic treatise that calls for a reunification of art and medicine. While the book may be of great use to sceptics, it is deeply affirming to those of us who are professionals practicing these delicate and life affirming therapies.
