Integrative Medicine: Healing Focused on Your Whole Health

The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt is where you’ll find health care designed around your whole health — mind, body and spirit.

Integrative medicine goes beyond just treating your symptoms. It’s an approach to care that empowers you to be active in your healing and lifelong wellness.

Integrative medicine uses proven, research-based therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, mind-body counseling and massage that work with traditional medicine to help you achieve better health.
