Integrative Medicine Resources & FAQs

At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, we’re here to support you on your path to health and healing with integrative medicine therapies.

Why choose integrative medicine?

Hospitalization or prolonged treatment can be stressful. Integrative health modalities can help reduce pain, relieve stress and create a sense of calm. Integrative medicine can support and enhance the healing power of conventional medicine, resulting in better outcomes, shorter hospital stays and greater patient satisfaction. 

What is integrative medicine? 

Coping with cancer

Fighting cancer goes beyond physical treatments. That’s why we offer a full range of support services and resources to focus on your body, mind, and spirit. Find emotional support and navigate challenges throughout your journey with support groups and other integrated cancer care.

Paying for integrative health services

Cash or credit card payment for integrative health services is due at the time of treatment. Upon request, we can provide documentation for you to send to your insurance company.

Most patients have insurance that covers acupuncture, massage and naturopathy, but policies vary widely on benefits related to these services. Because policies are often customized, we don’t always know what your policy covers.

If your health insurance handbook doesn’t specifically address these policies and benefits, please contact your health insurance’s customer service department for policy and benefit verification. The customer service phone number is on the back of your health insurance ID card.

Connecting you with integrative medicine

Your path to optimal health is unique to you, and our specialists can help find the right combination of integrative health therapies to help you recover and feel your best.
