We Can Help Patients with Common Ailments
- Back and Neck Pain
Chiropractic care at the Center for Integrative Medicine and Wellness focuses on restoring proper movement to spinal structures to keep the body working efficiently and to reduce pain and discomfort. We also use advanced massage therapy techniques for chronic back and neck pain, soft tissue injuries and stress reduction.
Our health and our psychological and emotional states are strongly related. Repeated strong stress reactions can contribute to medical problems. Our behavioral medicine specialists address the inter-relationships between physical and mental and emotional health, and provide their clients tools to reduce stress and tension. Behavioral medicine therapies we offer at the center include
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Relaxation techniques
- Common Cold and Sore Throats
Acupuncture works by balancing and building the body’s life force energy. An imbalance of the body’s energy may result in physical-, emotional- or stress-related conditions and illnesses, including colds, sore throats, headaches and dizziness. The purpose of the acupuncture needles is to stimulate the immune response, both locally and systemically, which adjusts the body’s energetic system to promote balance and healing.
- Learn to Quit Smoking
Cigarette smoking is one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. Our smoking cessation program is based on the most current and proven methods and includes a step-by-step plan for quitting, information on cessation medications and techniques for remaining smoke-free.
- Eat Healthier
At the Center for Integrative Medicine and Wellness, our registered dietitian specializes in designing nutritional plans for a wide range of needs. When clients meet with our dietician, they will receive personal attention that includes a discussion about their personal needs, which will allow the dietician to establish a nutritional plan that is appropriate for each individual.
- Sexual Health
Our sexual health specialists provide comprehensive services to address sexual dysfunction for men and women. We provide confidential, compassionate, proven and practical guidance, and work in collaboration with your healthcare team, to help you regain health and healing with regard to sex and intimacy.
