With a holistic integration of Eastern and Western medicine, we specialize in not only treating illness, but preventative care for the whole family.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of healing that involves the insertion of thin, metal, disposable needles into the skin at specific points on the body.
The systematic use of manual soft tissue mobilization techniques to relieve pain, reduce swelling, enhance healing, improve mobility, and promote deep relaxation of the muscles and nervous system.
Counseling can be helpful with present or past problems, and can be used to change harmful patterns of behavior. Psychotherapy is for anyone, especially those overwhelmed, depressed, or feeling stuck.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Chinese herbal medicine focuses on restoring a balance of energy, body, and spirit to maintain health rather than treating a particular disease or medical condition.

At the Integrative Medicine Center we are dedicated to helping you achieve your highest potential for wellness regardless of your current state of health. We believe:
The body has an innate capacity to heal
Optimal health is a state of balance and harmony in mind, body, and spirit, and reaching and maintaining this balance is a lifelong process
Knowledge is the key to responsible health care decision making and patients should be actively involved in their healing process
Respect, compassion, and inspiration should guide the practitioner
The Integrative Medicine Center of Ithaca was founded by Dr. Ann Wang in 2002. Prior to the establishment of this medical delivery model in the USA, Dr. Wang served as a teaching physician in the teaching hospital at Shandong University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in China where she practiced Integrative Medicine as both a Western Medicine and Eastern Medicine practitioner. As she began her career in Ithaca, Dr. Wang realized that the culture and environment would foster her integrative medicine vision. As a part of the community, she found other talented practitioners in the area who shared a similar vision of creating an integrative medicine practice. On November 1, 2002, Dr. Wang’s dream came to fruition as the Integrative Medicine Center opened its doors. Since its opening, the Integrative Medicine Center has been greatly accepted and supported within the Ithaca community and has been recognized as one of the pioneers of Integrative Medicine in this country. Dr. Wang now serves as mentor to the IMC team who has been called to carry this shared vision into the next generation - to transform parallel play medical care systems into integrative and collaborative patient-centered team-based health promotion systems.

"The esteemed Dr. John Shen of New York City and Dr. Ann Wang warmed my yang with moxibustion therapy. I am thrilled that the new IMC owner, Rhonda, incorporates this acupuncture-procedure into my sessions...her results are swift, amazing, and enduring!" - JF
"I have been receiving acupuncture for over 25 years. Originally, it was to help with the pain and discomfort caused by endometriosis. Dr. Ann Wang, Founder of Integrative Medicine, was an integral part in my healing and ultimately the birth of my only child." - LW
"Fifteen years ago, my primary care physician informed me that I had severe hypertension. After listening to my concern about taking drugs, he referred me to the Integrative Medicine Center. I was impressed by the doctor's broad experience and training in both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The course of treatment significantly lowered my blood pressure and maintained it at a healthy level. I am deeply grateful for IMC's alternative approach and continue to go there to maintain good health." - LL
"I feel so much better, how amazing!" - EV
