There are many dimensions to good health – mindful awareness, emotional, environmental, social, spiritual, personal and professional, physical and financial – to name just a few. All these factors contribute to a person’s overall health and well-being. Integrative medicine focuses on prevention and health maintenance and makes use of appropriate medical and therapeutic approaches to achieve optimal health and healing.
SSM Health providers at select locations in Wisconsin bring together the best available healing traditions - from nutritional supplements to accupuncture to massage - in an integrative way to partner with our patients to promote healing of the mind, body, and spirit.
Our providers offer integrative medicine consults, acupuncture and other preventative services. They enjoy collaborating with patients and their physicians to reach patients' health goals and offer a wide array of services, including:
Acupuncture is used to alleviate pain and treat physical, mental or emotional conditions done by inserting fine, sterile needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupunture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities and in promoting physical and emotional well-being. Accupuncture may be used to ease the symptoms of anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, pain, and insomnia.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to produce a therapeutic outcome in a patient. Essential oils can be applied topically or inhaled for a variety of conditions. Aromatherapy is used for pain, anxiety, insomnia, mental wellness, inducing relaxation and more.
Auriculotherapy is using small electrical stimuli to the ear that corresponds with different areas of our bodies. It can help with pain management, induce calmness, smoking cessation, and weight loss among others.
Brain Tap Technology
Similar to hypnotherapy, Brain Tap Technology features over 700 pre-programmed sessions for patients to choose from. While wearing a headset, soft flashing lights and binaural beats will help to relax, reboot and strengthen your busy brain. This service will last approximately 30 minutes.
Our heart sends more messages to our brain than our brain sends to our body. By learning to put the heart and the brain in sync, it produces calmness that will help in all aspects of life.
Hypnotherapy helps people change their minds regarding unhealthy habits. Unhealthy eating, smoking, fear of flying, insomnia and stress are all habits that hypnotherapy can aide in reducing.
During the first visit, we will discuss your personal history and your goals. We will also take time to review and provide feedback on any supplements you consume. At the second visit, we will have information prepared for your regarding your concerns. Follow-up visits may be necessary.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Photobiomodulation, also known as low level laser therapy, is used to help with acute or chronic pain. It also helps with wound healing. The laser focuses in an area and increases blood flow and oxygen, increasing cellular activity which leads to decreased inflammation and pain.
Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of skin, muscles and underlying soft tissue to reduce muscle tension and loosen sore joints thereby minimizing physical pain. Massage therapy may be used to treat stress, anxiety and depression, chronic pain, muscle tension, and high blood pressure.
Multi-Wave Light Therapy
Multi-wave Light Therapy has a variety of LED and infrared lights that can help promote relaxation as well as reduce pain, fine lines, stretch marks and acne.
Reiki is a healing technique where the therapist channels energy to the patient by means of light touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body to help restore physical and emotional well-being.
