Integrative Health Therapies
Integrative Health Therapies, also known as Holistic or Complimentary Care, is a philosophy of care that has as its focus the wellbeing of the whole person: body, mind and spirit. It incorporates a variety of practices that are not intended to replace standard medical care but rather designed to enhance that care by supporting each person’s natural ability to heal. If you are having trouble with sleep, pain discomfort, nausea, anxiety or stress and wish to enhance your ability to cope, integrative health & healing therapies can help. Please consult a member of care team if you would like to learn more about any of these practices.
