Want to be your best self? Here’s how integrative health can help you optimize your health and wellness. 

What is integrative health? 

Integrative health, also known as integrative medicine, is a comprehensive, holistic approach to health and wellness. In order to achieve optimal health and healing, the field of integrative medicine and health reinforces the value of the relationship between the practitioner and the patient, focuses on the whole person, is evidence-based and employs all suitable therapeutic modalities, healthcare professionals and professions. In this holistic approach, your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs are all taken care of. 

How does integrative medicine boost your health and wellness? 

Integrative medicine prioritizes your overall health over just your illness or disease.

Herbal therapy

Whether you are struggling with digestive disorders or you are feeling tired all day, herbal therapy can help. This technique uses thousands of herbs, minerals and other extracts to improve your health and wellness. 

Chiropractic therapy

A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which skilled professionals (chiropractors) apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint with their hands or a small instrument to enhance spinal motion and your body's physical performance. People seek chiropractic adjustments most frequently for low back pain, neck pain and headaches.

Holistic psychotherapy

Evidence-based treatments like hypnosis are used in holistic psychotherapy to alleviate symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and other conditions.

Massage therapy 

Massage therapy uses soft tissue manipulation and body movement to promote your health and well-being.

Yoga

Yoga is an excellent practice to boost your health and wellness as it combines specific postures and movements with breathing to unify your mind and body.
