Integration Medicine

A patient-centered approach that addresses a broad spectrum of needs. We combine modern, conventional Western medicine with therapies such as massage and acupuncture together to promote wellness and relieve discomfort.  We address the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, and environmental influences that can affect a person’s health.

Services are available within inpatient and infusion center settings at this time by request. There is an out of pocket fee associated with these appointments.

Visiting family members may make appointments for themselves in The Springs as well. We do accept walk-ins, but cannot always guarantee availability of all services without an appointment.
