Natural Setting Frames Duke Integrative Medicine
Duke Integrative Medicine Center in Durham, North Carolina, provides a unique model for how medical services can be delivered in a harmonious and integrated healing environment. Located on the Duke University campus, the center operates on the principle that mind, body, spirit and community are powerfully interrelated in both health and disease. The center blends its holistic healing message with its building design: the 27,000-square-foot facility stands next to woodlands and streams, with treatment rooms that offer scenic garden views. The building also houses meditation spaces, a demonstration kitchen, a fitness center, and workshop and conference facilities. The center’s philosophy is rooted in the concept of partnership, “where patients and healthcare providers work together to develop a health plan to address the whole person.”Treatments offered include personalized health planning, yoga, Reiki massage, other forms of bodywork, health coaching and stress reduction education, among others.
