The healthcare field has been facing a crisis recently as prices for care skyrocket and patients are put on waitlists for procedures big and small. Many patients are spending more time on the phone with insurance than being cared for by their doctors, and rather than feeling compassionate healing; patients feel sterilized and cramped in overcrowded hospitals. But there is a better way to look after your bodily health, which combines compassion, traditional healing, and one-on-one care.
Integrative medicine combines traditional Western medical treatments, with various therapies and healing methods catered to each patient. Integrative medicine focuses on the patient as opposed to the disease; meaning, rather than listing out your symptoms and being prescribed treatments via trial and errors, practitioners get to know you as a person and discover your personal environmental, genetic and mental factors that can cause various conditions. At Om’echaye, our practitioners get to the root of the issue. Rather than treating current symptoms that may be fleeting, they take time and care to tackle your issues at their root, promoting healthy lifestyle changes so you can enjoy long-term health and healing as opposed to temporary relief.
The benefits of integrative medicine are immense. The mental benefits of being treated as a person as opposed to simply a patient or a case number can go a long way in promoting healing, as the stress many patients can feel when having to deal with the healthcare industry can cause illnesses and symptoms on top of their base condition. Integrative medicine also promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself, rather than pumping unnecessary chemicals into your body in an attempt to treat symptoms. Sometimes something as simple as a change in diet or a meditation regimen can alleviate a patient. Integrative medicine promotes healthy lifestyle changes to achieve good health and helps patients regain the control that chronic illness can take from them.

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms.
Acupuncture involved the insertion of needles into strategic points to balance the flow of energy and create homeostasis inside the body. Stimulating certain points along the nerves, muscles, and connective tissue boosts the activity of the body's natural painkillers, balances out hormones, ameliorates blood circulation, and much more.
Integrative nutrition is a holistic approach to nutrition that looks at the client with an integrative lens to consider their physical nutrition, along with their emotional, mental, and spiritual components.
Massage and healthy touch is one of the most essential aspects to maintain a healthy body, mind, and spirit. Massage helps enable us to increase our range of motion, flexibility, relaxation, emotional and energetic balance, circulation, and to reduce stress.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a delicate form of massage that helps drain fluids out of tissue and move throughout the body. The lymphatic system delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses, and toxins. By stimulating the lymphatic system, the therapist helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body's immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, and aids in the body's natural waste removal or detoxification.
Sound healing uses sound and vibrations to help the body, mind, and emotions to balance, open up, and connect with spirit. In this session, the therapist uses energy healing, instruments, some gentle touch, essential oils, and stones. All these elements work with subtle energies, meaning they create vibrations in space. When used with the right intention, vibrations can help facilitate healing.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese method of healing that uses energy to balance the body and mind. The therapist uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing. Through their hands, therapists transmit the universal energy called qi that allows for self-healing and a state of equilibrium.v
