Each person’s treatment plan will be unique, tailored to what makes the most sense for them.
Possible treatment options may include:
- nutritional recommendations
- vitamins and supplements
- conventional medications
- mind-body therapies like deep breathing, meditation, guided imagery or yoga
- physical activity—stretching, strengthening and aerobic
- manual medicine like massage, osteopathic manipulation, or rehab services
- psychological counseling or cognitive behavioral therapy
- acupuncture for pain, fatigue, hot flashes, emotional well-being and more
Integrative medicine services are available at the Mary Kimball Anhaltzer Center for Integrative Medicine on Koeller Street in Oshkosh. In addition, integrative medicine treatments will be incorporated into primary care through the medical home model, starting with the Greenville clinic. Also, massage and acupuncture services will soon be available at Mercy Oakwood. The Mercy Health Foundation and St. Elizabeth Hospital Foundation have supported the development of this program.
