UK Integrative Medicine & Health

The UK Integrative Medicine & Health program uses traditional medical therapies and practices, while also recognizing the interaction between the patient’s mind, body and spirit.

Integrative medicine focuses on the whole person using all appropriate therapies, health care expertise and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

At UK HealthCare, we believe this approach is integral in the patient’s overall health and well-being. Our mission is to assist patients in reaching their health and wellness goals by treating the whole person – body, mind, spirit and community.
