University Hospitals integrating alternative therapies into patient care
University Hospitals is one of a growing group of hospitals around the country that are integrating therapies such as reiki, acupuncture, reflexology and massage into patient care. Many of the UH patients availing themselves of such alternative treatments are trying them because they have been recommended by their doctors—physicians who not so many years ago would have considered these treatments fringe, if not outright quackery. No longer. As Dr. Francoise Adan, medical director of UH's new Connor Integrative Medicine Network, explained, "We are an academic center, so these are evidence-based therapies."
