What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine combines traditional medical care with a wide range of complementary therapies and treatments proven to be safe and effective in promoting optimal health and well-being. Complementary therapies do not replace traditional medicine — they are used together to provide a comprehensive approach to care.

Some examples of complementary therapies include yoga, acupuncture, massage, meditation and herbal remedies, to name a few.

This combined health care approach treats the whole person. The evaluation and treatments consider physical symptoms, lifestyle, environment and diet as well as mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Integrative Medicine is effective for a wide range of illnesses, pain management and general health promotion with a strong emphasis on prevention. With Integrative Medicine, patients are actively involved in their treatment.
