Integrative Health is a groundbreaking CHOP program that aligns cognitive behavioral therapy, nutrition and diet, meditation, yoga, acupuncture, Reiki and aromatherapy in a new, data-driven approach to patients' medical treatments. Integrative health techniques can complement the treatment of patients in specialty areas such as gastroenterology, neurology, oncology and orthopedics, and treatments have resulted in remarkable breakthroughs, including lower stress, a reduced need for medication or invasive therapies and faster healing.
