Integrative and Functional Medicine
We use modern wellness practices, diagnosis and treatment as well as complimentary modalities such as meditation, acupuncture, hypnosis, yoga, and massage. We focus on patient lifestyle, habits, and history to find the root cause and treat you as a whole person. Mental health in the last century has been practiced as a separate area of health, but medicine is now recognizing the holistic nature of health and that mental health forms an integral balanced part of physical health, with each relying on the other to function.
