Integrative Medicine Consult

Integrative Medicine is a healing-oriented medicine that emphasizes a holistic, patient-focused approach to health care and wellness, treating the whole person. It uses many modalities and appropriate therapies informed by scientific evidence, such as nutrition, mind-body practices, lifestyle changes, stress reduction, mental and spiritual wellbeing, the use of appropriate dietary supplements, and herbs and bioidentical hormone therapy.

Naturopathic Medicine takes a whole-person approach to health and focuses on supporting the body’s innate ability to heal.

Integrative Primary Care

Our physicians practice primary care through the lens of integrative medicine. They are accepting new patients at UW Medicine’s Primary Care at Northgate Clinic. Integrative Primary Care enhances conventional care by focusing on holistic approach to health. Our providers respect the wisdom of modern technology, medication, and conventional treatments, as they introduce other natural therapies.

Integrative Primary Care Medicine allows natural therapies to become part of “regular” health care. The interaction between all practitioners of varied services is respectful and collaborative. Patients and practitioners work in partnership, focusing on the whole person and their unique needs.

Patients with complex healthcare needs and those who want to include other kinds of treatments in their care would benefit from an Integrative Medicine Consult.


Acupuncture is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body using very thin needles to restore health. There has been extensive research on the benefits of acupuncture, especially for: 

  • Pain management
  • Back and neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis / knee pain
  • Headaches

Acupuncture may also be effective in treating other health issues — each person will have a unique response to the treatment.

Our providers at the UW Osher Center bring integrative medicine and acupuncture into mainstream medicine to provide cohesive and coordinated care for our patients.

Medical Massage Therapy

The goal of medical message is to reduce pain and improve mobility. After a thorough assessment and intake, our licensed medical massage therapist may incorporate a variety of techniques such as Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular Technique, Lymphatic Drainage, and Myofascial Integration, as indicated, to improve function.

Our therapist collaborates with your healthcare provider to ensure the treatment is safe and effective for the conditions diagnosed. Please ask your provider for a referral.
