After 9 years of providing wonderful Integrative Medicine Services, our partnership with RiverView Health is coming to an end. The Integrative Medicine Center will be closing as of July 31, 2013. Since 2004, the Center not only provided primary care integrative medicine and consultative services to the region but also helped to expose health care professionals in the area to the value and need for Integrative Medicine. We want to thank RiverView for this outstanding partnership and especially the vision of Deb Boardman who helped us launch this unique clinic.

About Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine focuses on health and healing rather than on treating symptoms or just treating disease. The client and practitioner partner to seek health and healing, empowering the client to become and stay healthy. The focus is on the person as a whole, addressing all factors that affect health (mind, body, spirit and lifestyle). We acknowledge the wisdom and usefulness of all modalities: conventional medicine, natural therapies, and effective ancient healing techniques. The approach in Integrative Medicine is compassionate and patient centered.

However, we have found that the “spirit” component of the holistic approach of body, mind and spirit often is overlooked or addressed in a superficial manner by many integrative medicine providers. MICAH is committed to examining and working with the spirituality component of health and healing in a thorough, deep manner tailored to the individual’s faith and spiritual beliefs.

Discover Healing and Wholeness

Healing and wholeness require more than one visit to the doctor, an appointment with your counselor, or a Sunday service. At the Minnesota Institute of Contemplation and Healing we believe everyone has the potential of being authentically healthy and whole.

From cooking classes to our Year-Long Health & Spirituality Pogram, the health and healing programs of MICAH involves many different components.
