Harrison Complementary Therapies has a New Name - 11/18/2013

BREMERTON, WA – Harrison Medical Center has announced that Complementary Therapies will now be called Integrative Health. Though their name is changing, their commitment to providing exceptional healthcare and optimizing wellness through integrative therapies and healing arts remains stronger than ever for patients.

Integrative therapies have been proven to reduce pain, relieve stress, and create a sense of calm in those receiving medical care—supporting and enhancing the healing power of conventional medicine. This includes creating a healing environment throughout the hospital and supporting our Healing Garden at Harrison Bremerton. The following services are offered as part of inpatient care at Harrison facilities:

  • aromatherapy
  • art therapy
  • pet therapy
  • relaxation techniques
  • soft-touch hand rub
  • therapeutic music and drumming
  • therapeutic yoga

Tiffany Leveille, manager of Integrative Health at Harrison, said, “We empathize with our patients’ needs for innovative care and we are committed to improving the services provided to them.”

The Harrison Foundation provides considerable funding for supplies and ongoing education for the staff and volunteers of Integrative Health.
