Below are some alternative health and wellness
options that we encourage our patients to consider:

Reiki: This is a body harmonizing technique used to restore nature’s energy flow with a calm and nurturing touch.
Deep Tissue Massage: Intensive massage experience focused on releasing tension in deep muscle layers to relieve tension headaches and chronic muscle pain.
Acupuncture: This alternative therapy provides relief for many health conditions by using the ancient Chinese techniques to pinpoint various meridians or channels of the body to relieve pain.
Reflexology: Therapeutic foot massage that improves circulation and restores energy flow through the entire body using ancient techniques.
Yoga/Pilates: Patients who a able to find positive results from the tranquil exercise of yoga and the healthful practice of Pilates and stretching. A disciplined approach to physical wellbeing can be extremely beneficial for patients. Classes that teach patients to care for their bodies and be aware of its needs promote health and wellness.
Educational Seminars and Training Courses: A well-educated patient is a healthy patient. Uplifting Health and Wellness provides a forum to learn many different relevant topics. Education gives a person confidence and supports the healing experience.
Counseling: At times patients just will need to talk to someone about issues in their life. Counseling is a service that is essential to the healing process. With all of the stress and turmoil people face in life, having an outlet and forum in which to openly discuss these challenges is extremely vital part of healthy living.
Support Groups: It is proven that patients benefit greatly by being part of a support group to share and discuss the challenges that they may share with others in similar situations. HIV, Cancer, Gastrointestinal, and other condition based groups allow for patients to be a part of a smaller community of patients that have the same type of issues.Together they can share ways of overcoming them. Uplifting Health and Wellness provides a space for these meetings and will give guidance if needed.
Cannabis Medicines: Medical cannabis has proven to be a positive medical option for a growing part of the population. Patients find relief in different kinds of cannabis medicines, such as tinctures, extractions, whole plant preparations, topical treatments, and more. We encourage patients to explore the different types of therapies and find what works best for them.
Herbal Compounding: Compounding refers to the process of combining various herbs in a balanced formula to treat specific conditions or issues, or to act as a whole-body holistic formulation. Patients have found positive results using compounding methods, in lieu of, or in addition to conventional medicines.
Ayurveda: Ayurveda is the traditional Hindu system of medicine, which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing. The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are that the mind and the body are inextricably connected; and that nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind.
Chinese Medicine: Chinese medicine is a system of medicine partly based on the idea that an energy, called qi (say “chee”), flows along pathways in the body called meridians. In this belief, if the flow of qi along these meridians is blocked or unbalanced, illness can occur. Using acupuncture, herbs, and other treatment modalities, Chinese medicine works to restore harmony and energetic balance to the body which stimulates natural healing and promotes health.
Traditional Western Herbalism: The Practice of Traditional Western Herbalism places the function of western herbs in their true historical context, apart from homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, and Ayurveda. Western herbalism is based on physicians’ and herbalists’ clinical experience and traditional knowledge of medicinal plant remedies preserved by oral tradition and in written records over thousands of years. Western herbalism, like the much older system of traditional Chinese medicine, relies on the synergistic and curative properties of the plant to treat symptoms and disease and maintain health.
