Five Stars of Treatment
Two patients with the same diagnosis may have very different underlying reasons for their condition. That’s why every treatment plan at Alliance Integrative Medicine is unique and personalized based upon our findings from our Five Rings of Diagnosis. As we collaborate with you in developing a long-term wellness plan, we take a holistic approach to your health by focusing on five key treatment areas – we call these the Five Stars of Treatment.
At first, our treatments are always designed to help you feel better as quickly as possible. Our ultimate goal, however, is to help you get well and stay well via a transformational health plan that fits your life and empowers you to live better and feel better.
Your treatment at AIM has three stages:
1. Relief and Repair Our goal during the relief and repair stage is to have you feeling 40 to 50 percent better within the first five treatments. During this stage, treatments may be more frequent – usually once a week or even more frequently in severe cases.
2. Restoration and Regeneration As your body begins to heal and you move toward regaining your normal function and activity, treatments are less frequent, usually every two to four weeks.
3. Realignment and Revitalization Now that your health is renewed, you need treatment less often. Most patients need treatment once every one to two months.
A unique combination of Acupuncture, Chiropractic, and Energy Healing, ACE Healing Treatment is our most popular and highly regarded wellness offering.
AIM is Cincinnati’s leading physician-led acupuncture practice. The Alliance Integrative Medicine has the largest staff of doctor-led medical acupuncturists in Cincinnati, all trained by the renowned Helms Medical Institute through UCLA and Stanford University.
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) offers a unique and highly effective approach in treating the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities, including food allergy. AAT is a precision-based therapy that treats the organ systems involved in an overreaction.
Chiropractic care is an essential element in the integrative approach to medicine taken by the Alliance Integrative Medicine. Chiropractic is the science and art of restoring and maintaining health through the gentle, careful manipulation of the body joints and spine, to restore normal nerve function.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on technique usually performed by a chiropractor or licensed massage therapist. The technique is thought to improve the fluid movement of the craniosacral system – the membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord, as well as the attached bones, including the bones of the skull, face, and mouth (the cranium) and down the spine to the tailbone.
Energy healing is one of the oldest forms of healing in the world. At Alliance Integrative Medicine, we have integrated several different types of energy work, including therapeutic touch, healing touch, and the Japanese art of reiki. During an energy healing treatment, the therapist assesses the body’s energy field and attempts to correct any imbalances detected by placing his or her hands on the patient.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) is a new system of treatment using micro amperage current and the resonance effects of frequencies on tissues and conditions to create beneficial changes to symptoms and health.
All the physicians at Alliance Integrative Medicine are experienced practitioners of functional medicine. Patient-centered, integrative, and science-based, functional medicine focuses on the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex chronic diseases.
To help you achieve optimal good health, we may suggest the use of specific supplements for your specific needs, based on your physiology, health challenges, and lifestyle.
The Alliance Integrative Medicine has been a pioneer in the effort to bring the healing benefits of therapeutic massage into the arena of conventional medicine.

The Alliance Integrative Medicine is pleased to offer a mindfulness-based stress reduction course facilitated by Richard Sears, PsyD, MBA, ABPP, a board-certified clinical psychologist. This course will teach you how to control your stress in just eight short weeks. Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programs have been shown to help reduce the symptoms of a variety of chronic illnesses. These include chronic pain, anxiety, sleep disturbances, fatigue, high blood pressure, and tension headache.
Consistent with our philosophy and practice of personalized, pro-active and pre-emptive medicine, the Alliance Integrative Medicine is excited to offer nutrigenomics as part of its approach. One of the exciting fields emerging in modern medicine is gene testing, and the implications associated with being able to look inside the human genome.
Nutritional and lifestyle counseling have long been important staples in our integrative approach to medicine at Alliance Integrative Medicine. We use cutting-edge functional lab tests to assess your body composition, test for food sensitivities, and determine what nutrients you need.
Prolotherapy is a form of regenerative therapy that uses injections around joints to strengthen ligaments and tendons after injury or overuse.
Rolfing® is a holistic system of soft tissue manipulation and movement education, organizing the whole body in gravity. Rolfing® seeks to integrate alignment of the whole body, so movement is grounded in a responsive core, rather than anchored and restricted in an uneasy shell.
The old wisdom that there is no substitute for good health and vital well-being is a driving concept for the staff at Alliance Integrative Medicine. We offer a variety of programs and opportunities to improve your health and well-being, wherever you may be in your particular journey.
