Upwey Psychology supports the practice of Integrative Medicine as our primary approach to achieving Wellness and Wellbeing.
Integrative Medicine is a holistic approach to health that concentrates and treats the entire body rather than simply concentrating on the resolution and neglecting the reduction or the management of symptoms. This approach connects evidence based Complementary or Alternative treatments with Traditional Western Medicine.
Alternative or Complementary therapies include:
Integrative Medicine is open to non-traditional approaches to healthcare, one of the fundamental principles of Integrative Medicine is to provide treatments that are supported by high quality research and strong evidence base.
Traditional Herbal Medicine
In direct opposition to pharmaceutical medicines and drugs, Herbal Medicine focused on wellbeing and health by not only reducing the severity of the symptoms but by also restoring balance within the Mind and the Body.
