Integrative medicine blends the best of traditional, complementary and alternative medicine. It is based on the belief that the human body has innate healing ability. It not only addresses a child’s physical symptoms, but also the social, psychological, environmental and spiritual aspects of health and illness. We believe in empowering patients and families in their own care as well as provide them with healthcare choices that are proven to be safe and effective. Mara Liss, MD practices integrative medicine at our Minnetonka clinic.
