Holistic Medicine

What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine is a whole-person approach to health care. As a holistic medicine specialist, Dr. Quinn takes into consideration the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual factors that affect your overall health and wellness.

To address depression, anxiety, and other psychiatric conditions, Dr. Quinn uses a combination of traditional medicine, alternative medicine, and complementary medicine therapies. She works with you to identify the underlying cause of your condition instead of just treating your symptoms.

Through holistic medicine, Dr. Quinn can also reduce your risk for chronic health issues that affect your physical and mental health.

What holistic medicine services are available?

A variety of holistic medicine services are available onsite at the office of Melissa Quinn, MD, to address anxiety, depression, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

As a board-certified integrative and holistic medicine physician, Dr. Quinn offers:

  • Mindfulness exercises
  • Breathwork
  • Life coaching
  • Nutritional assessments
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • Exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy

Dr. Quinn also has extensive experience using ketamine infusion therapy to address treatment-resistant anxiety and depression. Ketamine is a surgical anesthetic that also helps create new neural pathways in your brain to quickly relieve severe anxiety and depression symptoms.

What can I expect during a holistic medicine consultation?

During a holistic medicine consultation, Dr. Quinn spends quality time with you discussing your symptoms and reviewing your medical history and current health.

You should also be ready to talk about your lifestyle, relationships, and job, so Dr. Quinn gets a clear understanding of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.

If you’re seeking treatment for anxiety, depression, or other psychiatric disorder, Dr. Quinn may order blood work to assess your nutritional needs. Because nutritional deficiencies can worsen symptoms of depression and anxiety, you might benefit from taking nutraceuticals and making changes to your diet.

Dr. Quinn also offers mindfulness resources to help you achieve a deeper sense of relaxation. She can teach you breathwork exercises and other techniques, so you can better manage stress and symptoms of depression or anxiety.
