What is virtual integrative wellness?
Virtual integrative wellness provides healthcare guidance based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) & Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) from the convenience of your home. It allows patients to take charge of their health by empowering them with knowledge and skills. It emphasizes a holistic, patient-focused approach, which may include mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and community elements. Your practitioner brings expertise & experience, combining both conventional and complementary approaches in a coordinated way. The process is to gain an overall understanding of the specific needs of each patient, treating the whole person in lieu of the linear approach of conventional medicine.
What should I expect?
Your visit may include recommendations for various mind-body practices, acupressure and meridian massage, tools for at-home pain relief and support, herbal medicine, supplements (which may include vitamins, minerals, and amino acids), or healthy lifestyle choices . You will be asked to fill out a health history questionnaire with a series of in-depth questions that will give an idea of the whole picture of your health. A simple plan will be devised that you may immediately execute—with the objective of providing relief as quickly as possible. Your practitioner will provide you a summary of your treatment plan suggestions. Follow-up session(s) would serve to trouble-shoot individual progress and sustain proper, continued care.
