Acupuncture and Massage Therapy
What Is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine combines modern western medicine with complementary health services — such as acupuncture, massage and herbal therapy — to heal both biological and psychological aspects of illness. Integrative medicine can be beneficial for treating a wide range of conditions, including those which haven't responded to conventional approaches alone.
Our integrative medicine program is led by physicians certified by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine. Supported by a team of certified therapists, primary care providers and specialists, these physicians work with you to care for your entire well-being.
Conditions we treat include:
- Digestive issues
- Neurological disorders
- Pain management
- Pre- and post-operative care
- Stress and anxiety
- Headaches and migraines
Many people view massage as a luxury, but it can act as more than simple relaxation. Routine therapeutic massage – especially within the context of a treatment plan – can contribute to sustained good health and increased function.
Acupuncture, which is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, uses fine needles placed at specific points on the body to create a systemic effect to shift your body toward balance.
Acupuncture is highly effective as a standalone treatment for most concerns a primary physician would address but also works well in conjunction with your doctor's care and/or physical or occupational therapy.
Mindful Yoga is an eight-week class that combines meditation practices and Hatha yoga. The classes are open to students of all levels. Participants should expect a slower-paced stretching class with some basic Pranayama breathing exercises and seated meditation.
