At the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt, we focus on your whole health: body, mind and spirit. We offer scientifically proven complementary therapies, such as acupuncture and yoga, to work alongside your conventional medical care. More than treating symptoms, this integrative medicine empowers you to take an active part in your healing and wellness so you can enjoy a better quality of life.
We are one of only seven Osher Centers for Integrative Medicine in the world. As part of the Osher Collaborative for Integrative Medicine, we share knowledge, resources and best practices as we study, teach and provide complementary medical therapies. We also are an active member of the Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine and Health. These affiliations translate into expert care for you.
Our acupuncturists, doctors, health coaches, massage therapists, mind-body movement instructors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and psychologists believe that being well is so much more than getting cured. They provide the knowledge and experience you expect from Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
In addition to group classes, we offer one-on-one sessions. You can meet privately with an integrative medicine specialist to review your medical history and current health challenges. They will customize a treatment plan just for you and your health goals.
Our specialists study innovative ways to improve whole health: body, mind and spirit. We are committed to research that will help patients manage chronic pain and disease. We also promote research by participating in the BraveNet project, a national network that shares information on patient needs and best practices in integrative medicine.
