Through his treatment of many men and women as a chiropractor and therapist, Dr. Clyde W. Ford discovered that the body can be the key to unlocking and opening the door to healing from physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. Dr. Ford has used touch to help his patients recover from a wide range of conditions, including chronic muscle strain, addictions, dysfunctional relationships, and abuse. In this revised edition of Compassionate Touch, new material on False Memory Syndrome (FMS) has been added. Dr. Ford discusses how reputable scientists noticed that under certain circumstances, patients recalled events that did not take place, forcing clinicians to be more cautious in diagnosing for sexual abuse treatment. Illustrated with numerous examples from this practice as well as his many workshops, Compassionate Touch also includes exercises that can be done individually or with a trusted partner.
