Vanderbilt's mission is to advance health and wellness through preeminent programs in patient care, education, and research.
The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Vanderbilt is where you'll find health care designed around your whole health: mind, body and spirit. Integrative medicine goes beyond just treating your symptoms. It's an approach to care that empowers you to be active in your healing and lifelong wellness.
Integrative medicine uses proven, research-based therapies such as yoga, acupuncture, mind-body counseling and massage that work with traditional medicine to help you achieve better health. Our therapies work with your traditional medical care so you can live more fully, cope better with medical conditions and be more engaged in your own health.
Our Practitioners are physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, health coaches, physical therapists, acupuncturists and massage therapists who believe that being well is so much more than getting cured. We provide the expertise and compassion you expect from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Integrative medicine is changing medical care for the better. We are one of only six Osher Centers for Integrative Medicine in the world.
