At Central Maine Healthcare, we’re focused on the whole you — mind, body and spirit. That’s why we specialize in integrative medicine, with a variety of therapies that address both your immediate needs and overall well-being.
These healing methods can help patients of all ages living with cancer, persistent pain or many other acute and chronic conditions. Integrative medicine is not alternative medicine; rather, it complements your existing treatment plan. Our specialists will work closely with you and your care team to find the right therapies to optimize your health.
Our integrative medicine services are conveniently available through Central Maine Medical Center’s Family Medicine Residency Program, and through referrals from your primary care doctor or medical specialists.
