Integrative medicine is a field of medicine geared toward healing. That doesn’t mean "curing" — it’s about caring for the whole child (body, mind, and spirit). Pediatric integrative medicine works in conjunction with a child’s medical care, which blends traditional and alternative (complementary or holistic) medical therapies for children to help them feel better physically and emotionally.
Pediatric integrative medicine helps children with all kinds of conditions and needs by:
- helping them to relax
- reducing stress
- increasing movement and exercise while nourishing the body
