Words to Live By    

More often than not, we don't like learning lessons about ourselves because it can be confronting. Many of us don't like to be wrong or acknowledge there is a part of us that is flawed or needs to change. This is why the same lessons keep appearing over and over again for so many of us. If you can find a way to learn something from what is happening, then you will change for the better and you will find that the constant problems you once had no longer appear.


Want to get involved? 

The Center for Integrative Medicine is supported in part by philanthropic donations. We raise money to help cancer patients access massage therapy and acupuncture who may not otherwise be able to afford these services. If you would like to donate, please click here for a list of funds you can contribute to or contact Jordan Mann, Practice Manager, at for more information.

Complementary Cancer Support Funding Program

Thanks to generous donations and fund raising efforts, TCFIM is often able to offer some of our CAM therapies at no cost to patients undergoing active cancer treatments.  While our program can only enroll a limited number of patients at one time, we encourage you to apply if you are in active treatment and we will let you know if we have funds available. See the brochure for more information on the program.

An Alternative Appproach to Treating Fibromyalgia
Jordan Mann


Fibromyalgia is a common condition that The Center for Integrative Medicine's practitioners help treat. Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, certain therapies can help relieve some of the symptoms. Recent studies have verified that the best outcome for each patient results from a combination of approaches that involve the patient in customization of the treatment plan.

Exercise is the key for your head, just as it is for your heart 
Lacey Patton
February is healthy heart month. A sedentary lifestyle is one of the top risk factors for heart disease. Furthermore, scientific evidence shows that  exercise has the capacity to exhilarate and relax, to provide stimulation and calm, to counter depression and dissipate stress. The downstream effect in eliminating stress is a strong immune system to fight off bacteria, viruses and infection in the winter months.

Read on for some advice and recommendations for staying active and keeping your heart and mind healthy. 

Mindful Living
The Shadow


 "Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." ~ Carl Jung

Your shadow can include everything outside the light of consciousness, and may  be positive or negative. It is typically referred to as the least desirable aspects of our personality that we reject or deny. We can learn about our tendencies and grow when we put the effort into finding out what these are.  


Read on for some background on this Jungian psychological theory and an exercise to help pinpoint your shadows.
