With this book, Ann has created a wonderful fusion of knowledge and narrative. She offers the reader a clear rationale as to why she incorporated each aspect of HEARTS into her practice. She leads us on a journey, showing the evolution of this precious technique, illustrating with case studies at every stage. Fantastic!

In this book, Ann Carter masterly explains and illustrates the entire HEARTS process for professional users from a theoretical to a practical point of view. As HEARTS undoubtedly is a multisensorial technique much needed in these challenging times for the supportive care within the healthcare system, this is a must-read informative book for nurses and therapists working in cancer settings and palliative care. Excellent!

This is a helpful book for anyone who is dealing with cancer patients or the chronically ill who would like to give them some gentle touch therapy to alleviate pain and to nurture the emotions and spirits of the receiver. In fact it would be very pleasant for anyone to receive or to give. I hope HEARTS will contribute to more merit being given to touch therapy in general.
