Her passion for the integrative medicine model evolvednaturally as an osteopathic trained physician. A holistic approach to patientcare is a mindset that takes into consideration the whole person. It acknowledges all the facets thatcontribute to health and well-being; the mind and body are connected. Patients need to feel heard andunderstood. Offering several medicaldisciplines (acupuncture, nutrition, mental health, hormone replacement, andmassage) allows a patient easier access to more options for their healthcare. The mind-body-spirit triad to health andhealing is exemplified by this practice and Dr. McKenzie.
