Our services are available to patients of Englewood Health as well as anyone who wants to take a proactive role in their own health. We can work with you to develop an integrative medicine treatment plan based on your needs and interests. If you are interested in sampling some of our services, check out our calendar of Graf Center classes and events. These programs are often free or have a nominal cost, so it’s a great introduction to experiencing the benefits of integrative medicine.
Acupuncture involves the use of very fine needles placed at strategic points on your body. The Graf Center for Integrative Medicine offers private acupuncture sessions for a number of health issues and concerns, including chemotherapy-related or surgery-related nausea and vomiting; headaches and migraines; pain; menopause symptoms; anxiety, fatigue, depression, and sleep disturbances; reducing nicotine cravings; immune system support and seasonal allergies; and control of appetite and cravings to support weight loss goals.
Consultations with Our Medical Director
Integrative medical consultations with our medical director aim to identify underlying causes of illness rather than just managing the symptoms.
Heart Health Program
The Wellness and Longevity: Heart Health Program, held in partnership with Kaplen JCC on the Palisades, is designed for people with heart disease or risk factors for heart disease. It is a six-week group fitness and nutrition program.
Holistic Nutrition Counseling
Our registered dietitian and holistic nutritionist are available for nutrition counseling sessions. We will teach you ways to eat healthfully during treatment for cancer or other conditions. If you’re not in treatment, we can evaluate your diet and work with you to eat in ways that support your health and energy.
Massage Therapy and Reiki
Massage therapy can be used with traditional medical treatment for many conditions. We offer Swedish, therapeutic, deep tissue, and neuromuscular massages, as well as Reiki. If you are undergoing cancer treatment or have lymphedema, we have special massage techniques to help you with your symptoms. We also offer massages to new and expecting mothers, including in the safety of their own hospital room.
If you are pregnant or a new mother, we have special maternal health programs, including massage therapy, yoga, and meditation.
Meditation and Stress Management
We offer a number of meditation classes and stress management workshops, including a Mind-Body Stress Reduction series, weekly meditation classes, and other programs, all part of our Rodgers Family Meditation Program.
Our smoking cessation program will teach you strategies to commit to quitting smoking. We offer acupuncture and guided meditation as part of our smoking cessation services.
