|Integrative Medicine & Wellness|
Mercy’s Integrative Medicine & Wellness Program, conveniently located at Mercy Medical at Dearborn Station, helps patients to embrace their health and learn to live well. Offering a wide-array of integrative services, the program and its highly credentialed and licensed professionals, are committed to using these disciplines to bring healing and balance to patient’s lives. They are not meant to replace traditional therapies, but rather work with them.
Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a therapeutic process that restores the body’s natural flow of vital energy through the insertion of tiny, sterilized needles into specific points. Acupuncture services are available via Community Acupuncture Chicago at Mercy Hospital.
Chiropractic: Chiropractic care focuses on the manual treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. We utilize patient-centered and evidence-based procedures to treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica, herniated discs, work-related injuries and headaches. Chiropractic can effectively and efficiently help patients manage multiple painful conditions through hands-on treatment without drugs or surgery.
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy reduces the effects of stress, relaxes tense muscles, increases blood circulation, decreases chronic pain and strengthens the immune system.
Zero Balancing: Zero Balancing is a hands-on, bodywork therapy designed to balance energy and structure within the bones and tissues of the body. Zero Balancing helps patients relieve physical and mental symptoms associated with stress and injury.
Integrative Medicine Physician: Schedule an appointment with an internist who specializes in developing personlized care plans that use integrative and wellness therapies.
