Our Program and Services

Complimentary CAM treatments

CHIP is a community-based health and research project. In this study, we want to learn how Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) could help people. CAM refers to medical practices that are not part of conventional medical care. Examples include acupuncture, dietary therapy, and mind-body therapies. Numerous scientific studies all over the world have been showing beneficial effects of CAM, when integrated with Conventional Medicine, in addressing conditions such as chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. Studies have also shown that CAM can improve quality of life and can be used as preventive medicine.
