Integrative Medicine brings non-traditional healing approaches, such as acupuncture, massage and yoga, into your health care plan.
Affinity Health System’s Mary Kimball Anhaltzer Center for Integrative Medicine in Oshkosh promotes the harmony of healing-oriented medicine and traditional health care. We address the combination of your physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual sides to find the most effective, least invasive paths to healing.

We welcome all patients interested in learning more about "natural" medicines and complementary therapies. Patients with chronic medical problems who do not respond well to conventional medicine may benefit from this approach. We most often see:
- people who want recommendations for disease prevention, wellness or life enhancement
- people who have chronic conditions such as pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, heart disease, cancer or rheumatic diseases.
Affinity’s Integrative Medicine experts conduct a comprehensive assessment to determine how physical, emotional and spiritual factors influence your health and wellness. Your Integrative Medicine physician will also review your medical history during the initial visit, which usually lasts 60 to 90 minutes. Your treatment plan may include general internal medicine recommendations, lifestyle changes, nutrition advice, herbal and supplement advice and other appropriate therapies. The integrative medicine physicians are not primary care physicians, but will work in collaboration with your doctor to help optimize your health.
