Programs and services

Committed to your healing and wellness

Below is a list of programs and services that are offered through integrative health. Please note that not all services are available at all locations.

Our doctors meet with people who:

  • Are seeking recommendations for disease prevention, living a longer life, wellness or life-enhancement

  • Have a chronic or complex medical condition such as cancer, heart disease and autoimmune disease and those living with chronic pain or fatigue

After your meeting, you receive a personalized wellness plan and suggestions for follow-up.

Please note: Primary Care services are not available at Integrative Health Clinics.

Mindfulness is the art of living in the moment, paying attention and listening to your heart. It can lead to decreased stress and a greater sense of peace. We offer retreats and classes on mindfulness for adults and young people.

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine. It involves gently inserting thin, sterile needles at specific points in the body. This stimulates the body’s natural healing processes.

Massage therapy and bodywork may reduce stress and lessen muscle tension. It may also improve circulation and improve chronic pain.

Our health psychologists are experts on the mind/body connection. They use traditional methods to enhance health and healing. They also use biofeedback, hypnosis, meditation and other techniques.

Conventional and complementary therapies can be a powerful combination when you’re fighting cancer. Our Integrative Health Program for people with cancer uses both. We focus on your needs, values and overall well-being in addition to fighting your disease.
