Eastern and Western medicine practices can bring powerful relief and healing, especially when it is thoughtfully and expertly interwoven; the result is an unshakable foundation for a joy-filled life in recovery. Integrative medicine incorporates the best of modern Western scientific knowledge with ancient Eastern healing techniques. By addressing and acknowledging your whole person, integrative medicine identifies and heals the root causes of your symptoms instead of just covering them up. Our conventional and integrative medicine methods jumpstart your body's healing mechanisms by focusing on less invasive modes of intervention. Combining the newest, most advanced scientific theory, mind-body principles, and healing technologies allow us to craft an effective and wide-ranging arsenal of wellness solutions.
We believe it is critical to go beyond just treating your physical symptoms and that healing is best achieved by identifying the underlying causes of your symptoms, problems, and behaviors. Rather than merely hiding or suppressing your surface symptoms with a quick remedy, Integrative medicine identifies symptoms, understands their root cause, and helps you heal through an integrative recovery plan designed just for you. Integrative medicine views symptoms as warning signs or messages communicated by our bodies to let us know that something needs fixing. When this message is ignored, and root causes are not addressed, it will continue to manifest itself, often in new and dangerous ways.
We see you as the unique individual you are, not just the product of your disease, trauma, or lifestyle. In contrast, the "disease model" of conventional medicine wants to label patients as addicts, bulimics, alcoholics, or people with schizophrenia. We consider you to be in a state of dis-ease (not disease), experiencing an imbalance in some aspect of your physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual wellbeing. By managing all of these dis-ease factors and their root causes and by reprogramming old habits and belief systems, we help you finally find recovery, restore balance, and bring peace back into your life.
We believe the proper treatment, recovery, prevention, and maintenance program should build upon sound science and incorporate fresh ideas and promising new paradigms. That's why we use only the most effective evidence-based services available, always strive for growth and innovation, and weave in what we know works without relying on what's "safe." Our personalized programs draw from well-established techniques and proven successful therapies, but we also remain open to new scientific discoveries and philosophies. Our focus is always geared toward developing treatments that will be most effective for you as an individual. If science and clinical practice have shown a particular therapy to be effective, with minimal to no adverse side effects, it has a place in our toolkit.
Your treatment will be based on a proven, integrative approach. Integrative medicine concentrates on the healing of the entire person: chemically, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. When you first meet with us, we will conduct a specialized assessment during which we will spend time listening closely to you and learning about any distresses, concerns, or sensitivities you may have. We know you are unique and have your own life story.
We will then work to create a unique evidence-based optimal wellness program that we believe will uniquely address your specific needs and circumstances and help you heal.
