About Integrative Medicine

The core principle of integrative medicine is to treat the whole person, not just the disease. Integrative medicine uses both traditional and nontraditional medical services to treat the mind, body and spirit.

Integrative medicine incorporates traditional Western medicine with alternative or complementary treatments such as acupuncture, massage, biofeedback and yoga. As part of our focus on maintaining wellness and promoting health, we offer clinical services in acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements and a therapeutic lifestyle program.

Integrative medicine takes a balanced approach to wellness and health. Instead of reacting to illnesses and diseases as they happen, we strive for prevention in order to deal with issues before they become serious enough to have a negative impact on your life.

Whether you are coping with a chronic condition, a major medical event or just want to enhance your well-being, integrative medicine can help.
