WELCOME TO OUR CENTER
Integrative Medicine is a new concept in healthcare offering traditional mainstream medical therapies alongside alternative or complementary therapies. Integrative Medicine also promotes health and wellness (disease and disability prevention) in contrast to the current “disease model” of traditional health care that focuses on the treatment of acute illness and medical emergencies. Lastly, Integrative Medicine is holistic, looking at the mind-body-spirit connection between disease and wellness.
