Welcome to Omaha Integrative Care

At Omaha Integrative Care, we offer counseling or coaching, yoga, massage, nutritional services, acupuncture, and meditation or mind / body medicine classes.

One of the things that sets Omaha Integrative Care apart is that we're the only location in the region that has all of those services under one roof.

One of the things we hear often from our clients is that when People come in, they feel like they're coming into a Sanctuary.

We're very picky about, not only who works here, but what we offer. All of the products we offer, right now, are through Pulling Down the Moon, and their products are triple-tested and the highest quality.

We really just want to help you to enjoy life to the fullest.

What is integrative care?

Integrative care combines traditional western medicine with complementary therapies such as yoga, nutrition, acupuncture, massage and counseling. A defining component to integrative care is that the complementary treatments are research-based and not meant to take the place of traditional medicine, but to support the whole person during treatment. Most importantly, integrative care is about treating the whole person and looking at all aspects of life – physical, emotional and spiritual.

Mindful Moment: Do You Hear What I Hear?

Mindful Moment: Do You Hear What I Hear? 5.00/5 (100.00%) 2 votes

Christmas Tree in the SnowHow often are we not listening?  It’s easy to ignore the information and gifts our senses pick up because we tend to constantly be on our way to somewhere else.  We miss what is around us in the present moment.

The Christmas song “Do You Hear What I Hear?” begins with a message that is carried by a whisper on the wind. The message is carried from the wind to a lamb until it is spread to “people everywhere.”  We need to listen closely to hear a whisper on the wind.  If we aren’t present, we may miss some meaningful messages in life.

As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, however that looks for each of us, try listening for your mindful moment practice.  For just a few moments, really listen to what you can hear around you. It may the wind against the window, the hum of a heater or chatter down the hall. Whatever it is, just notice it.  When your attention strays, simply bring it back to just listening.

For a more formal practice, you may choose to listen mindfully to your favorite music (preferably music without lyrics), the crackle of a warm fire or the settling of your house. Set aside time to listen.  You may hear something more meaningful than you expect.

Mindful moments are short exercises to be used throughout your week to relax, integrate and center yourself.  Inspired by the wisdom traditions and science, mindful moments are meant to be accessible and simple enough for anyone to practice.  Many teachers and leaders in integrative medicine have influenced our approach to mindful moments. Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”  Look for the weekly mindful moment every Monday.  May it support you in finding your center to live life to the fullest.

Reduce Stress for mind, body and spirit

Reduce Stress for mind, body and spirit 5.00/5 (100.00%) 1 vote

Stressed WomanWe all experience stress. Dr. Richard Lazarus defined stress as “A particular relationship between the person and the environment that is appraised by the person as taxing or exceeding his or her resources and endangering his or her well-being.”  How many of us felt taxed in the past week?  How many of us have felt the week brings more to our plates than the resources we have at hand?

There are family and work demands on top of the pressures we feel as a society.  Chronic conditions such as pain, depression or anxiety create an extra burden.  Whatever your unique situation, we are all experiencing some level of stress.  Science has shown us that chronic stress can have a huge impact on how we function.  Stress impacts not only our physical health, but our emotional health. Stress impacts how we feel and how we perform.  60-90% of visits to physicians are related to stress.

Mind Body Medicine for Stress Reduction is an 8 week class teaching skills and providing tools to reduce stress and improve overall wellness.  This class is based on research and training from the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine.

Participants learn and practice skills as well as track their progress weekly.  There are many conditions related to stress: infertility, cardiac conditions, menopause symptoms, depression/anxiety, and chronic pain are a few.  The mind body skills learned can reduce symptoms of these conditions and increase an overall sense of well-being.  It is also helpful for busy professionals who want to improve performance and promote healthy immune functioning.

Our next Mind Body Medicine for Stress Reduction class will be taught by Julie Luzarraga, LICSW, DCSW on Mondays from 5-6:30 PM.  The start date is January 19, 2015 and registration deadline is January 12, 2015.  Participants will receive two individual sessions before and after the 8 week session.  Cost is $295 for the entire 8 weeks (insurance may be accessed).
