We go beyond medicine

integrative 1

At Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, we understand kids and take care of more than their physical well-being – we care for body, mind, and spirit. Children's integrative medicine program works with medical staff throughout the hospitals and other clinics to address all three. The program is the longest-running pediatric clinical integrative medicine program in North America.

The integrative medicine program combines the best of complementary and conventional medical therapies to develop holistic solutions for children with chronic illness, acute and chronic pain, side effects from medical treatments, and emotional challenges such as depression and anxiety. Our approach is not meant to replace traditional treatments, but rather to enhance them.

The best of both worlds

What truly sets the integrative medicine clinic apart is the fact that we're staffed with advanced practice nurses and physicians with conventional medical training. But that's not all. Our team has received special training in techniques and therapies such as:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Biofeedback
  • Clinical hypnosis
  • Herbs and supplements
  • Reflexology
  • Massage therapy
  • And more

In other words, we have a thorough understanding of traditional medicine, integrative medicine, and ways to interweave both to create comprehensive, safe, and effective treatment plans to help kids heal.
