Self-care and teaching self-care to patients is integral and necessary to the integrative health care paradigm.
For the best individualized self-care routine to fit you and your condition, you must work with your Integrative Health care provider, such as your East Asian Medicine Practitioner (acupuncturist). To find a nationally board certified practitioner, go to the NCCAOM® Practitioner Directory and search by name, city, or your zip code.
