Integrative Health’s complementary services include acupuncture, naturopathic consults, Healing Touch, massage therapy and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and bodywork and the Feldenkrais® method.
Acupuncture may be effective for many acute and chronic illnesses and stimulates the natural healing process of the body to restore health and healing.
Through this practice you may increase your ease and range of motion and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement.
Healing Touch is a non-invasive therapy that may provide the recipient with mental calmness and an improved sense of well-being.
Healing Touch, massage therapy and acupuncture may assist patients in dealing with many issues commonly experienced during a hospital stay, including pain, anxiety, nausea and sleep disturbances.

They are trained to integrate both traditional and complementary therapies towards the facilitation of health and healing. Insight developed in the consultation also might be used to direct patients to the most relevant UW Health professionals.
