Integrative medicine brings together the best techniques of conventional and alternative healthcare, including acupuncture, massage therapy or tai chi. Ask your primary care provider about integrative services that meet you and your family's lifestyle and needs.
What is integrative medicine?
Integrative medicine offers an alternative to traditional, conventional medical care and healthcare. Integrative medicine does not take place outside of mainstream medicine. Instead, many primary care providers and some hospitals offer different types of integrative medicine or can link patients to alternative therapies.
Integrative medicine includes a variety of alternative therapies that may include:
- Dietary supplements
- Nutritional medicine
- Mind body relaxation
- Osteopathic manual medicine
