Caring for the Whole Person
At the core of The Osher Center for Integrative Health is a belief that health should be viewed in a much broader context, taking into account all factors that influence a person’s wellbeing. Our services range from consultative appointments with physicians to yoga classes with providers who tailor classes to participants specific health needs.
Group medical visits take a group approach to healthcare. Small groups of patients meet regularly in addition to one-on-one assessments with their provider. Group visits allow patients to become more informed and confident in making healthy choices, all while building a community and support system.
Massage therapy uses touch to promote relaxation for physical and psychological healing. A licensed massage therapist works one-on-one with a patient to manipulate muscles and tissues of the body to aid in healing and recovery.
Mind-body therapies are designed for you to pause and practice mindfulness. The benefits of a regular mindfulness practice can include decreased stress and anxiety, increased focus and concentration, and improved sleep, communication, relationships, and physical well-being.
Movement-based therapies including tai chi and yoga incorporate controlled breathing – which helps reduce stress and anxiety.
Culinary medicine is an educational and nutritional approach to improving eating behaviors and overall health by focusing on food shopping, storage, and meal preparation skills.
Listening to and making music can help us change our emotional state, improve our moods, and even help us manage stress. Music is truly one of the only mediums that gives our brain a full workout. It requires us to be present with ourselves while encouraging us to be in relationships with others, both key components of healthy lifestyles and wellness.
