Are you familiar with the benefits of integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is a holistic approach to care that addresses a person’s physical, mental and spiritual health. This approach focuses on teaching healthier habits and treating the whole person, not just specific symptoms. The benefits are often far-reaching and long-lasting for patients. Integrative medicine can be an excellent tool for sustaining good health, as well as for treating chronic issues and painful or debilitating diseases and injuries.

Over the past several years, the use of integrative medicine to promote health and wellness has grown in the United States. Studies have shown the positive benefits of yoga, meditation and mindfulness on stress and anxiety, pain management, certain forms of arthritis, heart health and overall well-being.

Common integrative health approaches used in integrative medicine include:

  • Deep breathing
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Tai chi or qi gong
  • Massage
  • Reiki
  • Aromatherapy
  • Guided imagery
