Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that encompasses the whole child, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of both conventional and alternative therapies.

Clinic Information

First-time patients are asked to complete a patient history form in advance and bring all their medical records with them. A comprehensive evaluation takes place based on the medical history and physical findings. Then, a specific treatment plan is suggested and discussed.

During the first session, children may receive their first treatment, along with techniques to try at home. An initial consultation will usually last 45-60 minutes. Please note that it may take 6-8 clinic visits to see if a particular therapy is working for your child or to make adjustments to a therapy plan.

Core Principles

  1. To provide a partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process.
  2. To provide safe and appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body's innate healing response.
  3. To consider many factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind, body, spirit and community.
  4. To recognize that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry driven, and be open to new paradigms.
  5. To use natural, effective, less-invasive interventions when possible.
