Integrative health and medicine combines mainstream medical therapies and complementary health approaches to improve health outcomes and quality of life. The use of integrative approaches for health and wellness has grown within care settings and researchers are exploring the benefits of integrative health in a variety of situations including pain management, relief of symptoms in cancer patients, and programs to promote healthy behaviors.
Integrative Touch for Kids' approach to integrative health and medicine takes the current practice to the next level by creating wellness systems designed to include the Whole Child, Whole Family and Whole Community. Our treatment and education models include care and support for every member of the family and engage the entire community. Junior volunteers learn to caregive and develop friendships with children of all abilities. Adults provide healing services, care and support. Every ITK family member is treated equally because ITK recognizes that when a child has special needs, a family has special needs and a community can help.
