Our practitioners often use alternative therapies in combination with traditional medicine to address not just the physical body but also the patient’s emotional and social health. Traditional medicine views disease as a distinct entity from the person who carries it. The growing trend toward specialization in medicine has led to many treatment advances, but also has distanced physicians from the “healthy” parts of their patients. A key difference between traditional and integrative medicine is that it emphasizes on whole-body care.

From pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) and acupuncture, to reiki and reflexology, choosing the best healing modality for you can be extremely beneficial.
