Transforming Healthcare through Integrative Medicine
What is Integrative Medicine?
Integrative medicine is an approach to health care that takes into account the whole person, addressing the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect an individual’s health. Integrative medicine is informed by evidence, makes use of all appropriate therapies, and emphasizes that the patient and practitioner are partners in the healing process.
At UH Connor Integrative Health Network, we offer integrative medicine therapies and services that work together with traditional medical treatments to heal the mind, body and spirit. Employing a personalized strategy that considers the patient’s unique circumstances, we use the most appropriate interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to heal illness and disease and help people attain optimum health.

Our dedicated health care professionals also include acupuncturists, massage therapists, meditation guides, yoga instructors and life coaches. All of our practitioners are experts with the highest credentials, whether in conventional medicine, integrative health, medical massage, exercise or Traditional Chinese Medicine. They will work closely with your primary care or specialty physicians to ensure that all the care you receive is coordinated and safe.
While there are many practitioners of complementary services throughout our community, availing yourself of services in a medical setting provides the certainty that those who are providing your healing therapy are highly trained and experienced, and follow the best practices model in health care. They are familiar with the most recent scientific research in their specialties, and they are rigorous about maintaining and enhancing their education in the field of integrative medicine. Integrative medicine happens not outside the parameters of medical specialties and departments, but within them. UH Connor Integrative Health Network is a place where compassionate, innovative and research-minded experts join together in a collaborative spirit.
