Perhaps nothing in all of human experience disrupts life more than chronic or acute pain. When you hurt, you want effective and consistent relief—without dampening your ability to think, act and move well.
Fortunately, holistic and integrative therapies offer a wealth of traditional and evidence-based, non-invasive options for dealing with pain. At the Center for Integrative Medicine at Alta Bates Summit, doctors use thorough integrative consultations, nutritional assessments, and personalized lab tests to create a holistic picture of your condition, habits and ongoing needs.
We work with you to develop a personalized plan to reduce or eliminate your pain, employing such therapies as acupuncture, chiropractic and therapeutic massage, guided imagery, and more. These services are currently available to cancer patients in our oncology program.
