Complementary medicine focuses on strengthening one’s own innate capacity for self-healing. It is a balanced integration of physical, emotional, and spiritual elements that interact to create wellness, thus treating the whole person not just the symptoms. Complementary modalities can help improve the quality of the patient experience.
