Hackensack Meridian Health Integrative Health and Medicine is a comprehensive health and wellness program that focuses on the whole person - body, mind and spirit.

Through personalized care, integrative health and medicine goes beyond solely treating symptoms of an illness or managing chronic disease. It seeks to optimize health over one’s lifespan addressing the unique circumstances of the individual through appropriate interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to help people regain and promote optimal health.

We approach care and service from our five pillars of health and well-being:

SLEEP: Quality and quantity of sleep is essential for the body and brain to heal, repair, and prepare for the next day. Sleeping disorders or not getting enough sleep can lead to many chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.

ACTIVITY: Physical activity is fundamental to the circulatory and respiratory systems and produces bio-chemicals such as endorphins that promote positive emotions and brain functions.

PURPOSE: A sense of purpose is that which gives meaning to one’s life. Having a reason to get up in the morning adds not only years to your life, but also life to your years.

NUTRITION: Food is the fuel by which our mind and body function. Proper nourishment helps to keep people sustained through life’s challenges.

RESILIENCE: The ability to “bounce back” and adapt to adversity are the skills needed to respond to stress in order to thrive versus survive.

Our care team consists of the following providers:

  • Kathleen Welshman, RN-BC, BA, NBC-HWC – Integrative Nurse Health Coach
  • Mary Brighton, MS, RDN – Integrative Nutritionist
  • Judson Chaney, ND, LAc – Acupuncturist
  • Amy Grutzmacher, L.M.T. – Licensed Massage Therapist
  • Emma Stafford, RN, APN-C, ACHPN, APHN-BC – Nurse Practitioner

We recommend an initial consultation with our integrative medicine care team to provide a comprehensive assessment of your current medical and health concerns to ensure your total body health is taken into consideration.

With an additional location in Old Bridge, our practice addresses the impact of lifestyle, environment, and genetics on an individual’s health and well-being, and understands that the provider/patient relationship is a vital component in the healing process.
