Conditions Treated at The Center for Complementary Medicine

At The Center for Complementary Medicine, our practitioners treat most medical and mental/emotional conditions. However, more than treating a condition, we treat the person. Our interest is more in what underlying imbalance is harming your health and we will seek to find what internal or external factors are leading to the break down in your physical function. Homeopathy, especially, is not so concerned with naming your illness, but rather with how your symptoms are uniquely presented. The other energetic techniques (acupuncture, energy work) also look for subtle clues that are creating “dis-ease”.

With that in mind, here are some examples of conditions that can be helped with complementary medicine techniques:

Acute (cold, flu, food poisoning, insect bites, injury)

Addiction (alcoholism, drug addiction, compulsive disorder, smoking, food cravings)
