Jacqueline Chan’s spiritual journey and her interest in health and healing both began early in life, and they are inseparable in her practice of Integrative Medicine.
“Health means more than the absence from dis-ease. Optimal health includes operating out of the highest expression of our soul’s purpose.
“I experience healing in a hands-on way––quite literally. I was drawn to Osteopathic Medicine because its holistic and individualized approach supports integrative methodologies as well as a spiritual view of health. Osteopaths receive the same full medical training of an M.D., with additional training in musculoskeletal manipulation and in a whole-person approach to consultation, diagnosis, and practice.
“The body intuitively wants to heal itself. My primary stance is to empower my client or patient through supporting their natural biochemical processes and identify other issues in they way of optimal physiology such as toxin build-up in the body, stress and hormonal imbalances. I made the conscious choice to integrate two empirically verificable truths: a specific compound, herbal or pharmaceutical, can help “cure” an illness; mental thoughts, trauma or feelings locked in the body can cause illness and heal illness. In addition to addressing the body’s physiology I use homeopathic remedies and energy medicine to help balance our emotional and spiritual self. I also offer the prevention of illness by providing optimal nutrients natural to the body, such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. I support the body’s biochemical processes and identify other issues such as toxin build-up in the body, stress, and hormonal imbalances. I create integrative protocols to correct these impediments, and often optimize the body through osteopathic spinal and cranial sacral adjustments. Patients report dramatic results from this comprehensive biochemical and energetic healing approach.
“I have had much success treating women’s hormonal health issues, chronic fatigue, and environmental toxicity, as well as mood disorders. I help my patients find their health.”
