Integrative Medicine's complementary services include acupuncture, naturopathic consults, Healing Touch, massage therapy and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, and bodywork and the Feldenkrais® method.
We have a healing-oriented philosophy that focuses on less invasive therapies to help remove barriers that may be blocking the body's ability to heal. This process recognizes and nurtures each individual's unique balance of mind, body and spirit.
Acupuncture may be effective for many acute and chronic illnesses and stimulates the natural healing process of the body to restore health and healing.

They are trained to integrate both traditional and complementary therapies towards the facilitation of health and healing. Insight developed in the consultation also might be used to direct patients to the most relevant UW Health professionals.
