Holistic, Complementary Care for Kids

The Nemours Children's integrative medicine team cares for all aspects of children’s health — mind, body and spirit. We blend traditional and alternative therapies for whole-child recovery and wellness. Integrative medicine therapies do not replace your child’s medical care, they complement and enhance it.

Our pediatric clinicians are certified in integrative approaches that activate the body’s natural power to heal. We can help reduce pain, aid recovery from injury, improve breathing, relieve anxiety, improve focus and thinking, improve sleep and more.

Nemours provides pediatric integrative therapies during hospital stays and during outpatient visits. We can also help before and after surgery to improve recovery. Many therapies are available to families, too.

We know how thoughts, feelings and lifestyle can affect health. Our team works with you and your child to create healthy habits that last a lifetime. We want your family to be happy and well, inside and out.
