Wellness Programs

Phoenix-fitness

Integrative medicine addresses the “pre-condition” causes of most diseases, using proven methods and engaging both the patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. We shift from traditional disease-centered treatments to a more pro-active approach, integrative¬†medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

We spend time with the patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. Through this comprehensive “pre-condition” approach – integrative medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Our wellness programs are inclusive of adult females AND males.”
