Integrative and complementary medicine

From aches and pains to fears and stress, our therapists and practitioners focus on a multitude of concerns. We ease anxiety through aromatherapy, soothe muscles through massage and harness natural pain relief through acupuncture and energy treatments.


At Sharp, our integrative and complementary medicine programs are used in conjunction with traditional medical treatment to help alleviate stress, reduce pain and anxiety, manage symptoms and promote well-being and balance.
