The evaluation consists of a comprehensive medical history, assessment of your health goals, and a close look at the underlying factors that influence your health.

Acupuncture utilizes an energy system within the body that follows pathways, called "meridians," which connect with internal organs. Acupuncture treatment consists of the gentle insertion and stimulation of thin, disposable, sterile needles at strategic points on the surface of the body. Each point provides a specific function to regulate a free flow of blood and vital energy, or "chi." Acupuncture balances this energy, which directs the body's natural healing ability to where it is needed.
Our acupuncture services are provided by a licensed acupuncturist (LAc).
Integrative Medicine Consultation
Physicians who are board-certified in both Internal Medicine and Integrative Medicine can perform a comprehensive evaluation to assess your additional healthcare needs. The visit consists of a comprehensive medical history, an assessment of your health goals, and a close look at the underlying factors that influence your health. We order any additional blood work or other tests that you may need. At your next visit, we review these results with you and partner with you to create a personalized treatment plan.
Massage therapy is a wonderful addition to the current treatments you may be receiving. It is useful for promoting relaxation and relieving pain, anxiety, and a variety of health conditions such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, muscle soreness due to exercise or participation in a sports activity, and low back and neck pain. It is also beneficial for relieving the side effects of some cancer treatments. Massage promotes a sense of well-being and helps to balance mind, body, and spirit.
Our licensed massage therapist, who is trained in a variety of techniques, will discuss your medical history and your current health with you, and target your specific symptoms or areas of need.
We provide individual instruction on meditation, mindfulness, guided imagery, yoga, relaxation exercises, and other techniques like aromatherapy and Tibetan singing bowls. These approaches may help to optimize the mind-body connection, attention, and resilience.

Based on your initial evaluation, we may suggest individual nutritional consultation. This includes tailored recommendations and creation of a food plan, along with guidance to help you follow it. Nutritional counseling is provided by a registered dietitian (RD) with specialized training in areas such as functional nutrition.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a form of talk therapy in which the therapist and client work together to understand the ways in which thoughts affect one’s feelings and behaviors. The therapy is structured and goal-directed, with the client playing an active role in identifying the specific goals he or she seeks to achieve. Unlike other forms of therapy, the focus of CBT is on the here and now. Using a variety of techniques the therapist helps the client identify maladaptive thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that contribute to negative feelings and behaviors. Over the course of treatment the client learns skills to modify perceptions, effectively problem-solve and improve communication. Ultimately, the tools gained in CBT will promote positive behavioral change and growth.
Our cognitive behavioral therapy is provided by a licensed clinical psychologist.
