Thousands of people afflicted with Fatigue and Sleep Disorders experience difficulty sleeping and have a reduced ability to perform regular daytime activities.   Sleep Disorders are treated successfully in 14 Integrative Medicine Clinics across the United States with a combination of Yoga, Nutrition, Meditation, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Qi Gong, Shiatsu).  Additional modalities incorporated into treatment include Massage, Exercise, Functional Medicine, Guided Imagery, Mental Health Counseling, Tai Chi, Biofeedback, Journaling and Reiki.

These clinics cited Fatigue / Sleep Disorders as one of “five conditions for which you are having the most clinical success” in a survey conducted last year by The Bravewell Collaborative.  The report Integrative Medicine in America: How Integrative Medicine Is Being Practiced in Clinical Centers Across the United States documents how integrative medicine is being practiced across the United States in 29 clinics.

These clinics support more than 40,000 patient visits each month, offer a variety of care models and collaborate closely with affiliated hospitals.  They employ a wide range of practitioners skilled in modalities including mind body interventions, movement and energy, dietary and biological, manual interventions and medical systems.
