Transformative Health And Wellness


What Is Integrative Medicine?


According to Dr. Andrew Weil MD, a well known Guru of the Integrative Medicine Movement includes eight distinctive principles:


• A partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process

• Appropriate use of conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the

   body’s innate healing response

• Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease,

   including mind, spirit and community as well as body

• A philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts alternative

   therapies uncritically

• Recognition that good medicine should be based in good science, be inquiry

   driven, and be open to new paradigms

• Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible

• Use of the broader concepts of promotion of health and the prevention

   of illness as well as the treatment of disease

• Training of practitioners to be models of health and healing, committed

   to the process of self-exploration and self-development.


At Transformative Health And Wellness it is our mission to work with our patients utilizing each and every principle of Acupuncture Chinese Medicine to ensure quality care for our patients.
