Frequently Asked Questions

Integrative medicine combines biomedical care with appropriate holistic therapies to heal and preserve the health of the patient’s body, mind and spirit.

At the Institute for Health & Healing, we empower people to heal with care that is personalized, collaborative and comprehensive. Whether you have cancer, a chronic condition such as heart disease or everyday stress, we use natural less invasive interventions whenever possible.

Our team of practitioners coordinate care to bring you a wide array of perspectives and treatments. We can collaborate with your physician and other providers within the Sutter Health system.

Integrative medicine combines conventional medical theories and treatments with traditional medicine from many cultures and modern therapies designed to strengthen the body-mind-spirit connection.

At the Institute for Health & Healing, we don't think of these services as alternative practices. Whether you have cancer, a chronic condition such as heart disease or everyday stress, we offer complimentary alternative therapies designed to promote healing in mind, body and spirit.

We believe health and healing include physical, mental, emotional, relational and spiritual factors. We partner with you to help define your health goals and care plans. You can expect your first visit to last 60 minutes. It will be a comprehensive assessment of the factors mentioned above, as well as other areas, such as sleep, stress management, nutrition and exercise. We’ll also address any specific health concerns you may have. If appropriate, we’ll coordinate your care with other team members, including chiropractic or functional medicine doctors or a medical acupuncturist, a nutritionist, therapeutic body workers or even an integrative psychotherapist who can help you make changes in your life.

We accept many PPO/POS insurance plans, and in Sacramento and San Carlos we also accept some HMO plans. We accept Medicare for some services in some areas. Other services are self-pay. Because every plan is different, please call your local clinic location with your insurance information and we'll check your benefit coverage.
