The Integrative Health Center, the professional family health clinic of New York College, one of the largest and most renowned out-patient Holistic facilities in the United States, has been recognized as a pioneer in providing integrative health care for patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Since 1976, the Center in Syosset has served as a model for Holistic health care, using minimally invasive, natural and preventive therapies that combine 5,000 year old Chinese healing practices with more modern methods of Western medicine, to treat the "whole" person.
The Integrative Health Center uses a team approach to provide the highest level of complementary health care for its patients. An experienced holistic practitioner will spend time to talk to you and take a comprehensive review of your physical and emotional health and then discusses treatment options for your health care concerns. They will discuss your treatment with other professionals from various disciplines, including many modalities of massage therapy, acupuncture, Swedish and Asian massage, herbalism and Holistic nursing who can work together to help you establish and maintain optimum wellness. Our practitioners are here to guide you and will take the time to answer our questions and concerns. The same professional services are also available at the College's Clinics in Manhattan.
