Integrative Headache Care is designed to redesign healthcare and the way you care for yourself. We understand the headache sufferer. We provide a curative, spa- like atmosphere at our clinic, as you may be experiencing a headache when you arrive. Lighting is kept soft and we begin treatment immediately by offering gourmet Italian coffee, superior therapeutic herbal tea, or bottled water in the waiting area. Aside from the spa-like ambiance, patients can expect individualized attention and treatment options that integrate the best of prescriptive and non-prescriptive therapies.
We observe standards of care and evidence-based recommendations per the American Headache Society and the American Academy of Neurology. This includes preventative and immediate -acting medications, oral nutraceuticals, botanicals and essential oils, headache-specific procedural medicine, and intravenous therapies.
For treatment recovery, patients can relax in the “The Comfort Cave”, a quiet enclave with tobacco-gray reclaimed barn wood, muted gray walls, plush leather recliner and soft-lit sofitted ceiling. With our free wi-fi you are welcomed to use your personal device for whatever music or sounds you prefer, if that is helpful, during your therapy and recovery time.
Our aim is that you feel comfortable and cared for when you seek treatment here.
