The Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine and Health (IMH) defines it as medicine and health practices that reaffirm “the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic and lifestyle approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.”
LUZwave’s priority is to take a wholesome and integrative approach to health, so in addition to offering services from our Board Eligible Family Practice, we also offer options for Complementary Medicine (CM), which is defined as diverse medical and health care systems, practices and products.
Our physicians and medical practitioners are practicing or have practiced in their respective fields (Board recognized Family Practice, Functional Medicine, and OB-Gyn), and they combine mainstream medical therapies with healing approaches and complementary therapies for which there is high-quality scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness.
Since our IMH approach focuses on the whole person, LUZwave’s team is constantly researching, evolving, and evaluating different IMH and CM practices and therapies to offer the most effective and thorough holistic care.
In addition to the Med-Spa, Wellness, Body Sculpting and other Services that LUZwave offers, our CM therapies and practices include:
