Holistic Medicine is actually an approach to life. Rather than focusing on illness or specific parts of the body, this ancient approach to health considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with his or her environment. It emphasizes the connection of mind, body, and spirit. With Holistic Medicine people also accept responsibility for their own level of well-being, and everyday choices are used to take charge of one’s own health.

Principles of holistic medicine include the following:
- The patient is a person, not a disease
- Healing takes a team approach involving the patient and doctor, and addresses all aspects of a person’s life using a variety of health care practices
- At RehabOne, Dr. Yao works closely with our acupuncturist, psychologist, and exercise specialists
- Treatment involves fixing the cause of the condition, not just alleviating the symptoms

At your initial visit, Dr. Yao will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your health. With this, Dr. Yao will determine what further work-up is needed and together with you develop a tailored treatment plan aimed at addressing the root cause(s) of your health problems. Many of our patients have found it helpful to complete their health questionnaire prior to their first visit, which can make the time you spend in the office more efficient for you.
