Welcome to Omaha Integrative Care

At Omaha Integrative Care, we offer counseling or coaching, yoga, massage, nutritional services, acupuncture, and meditation or mind / body medicine classes.

One of the things that sets Omaha Integrative Care apart is that we're the only location in the region that has all of those services under one roof.

One of the things we hear often from our clients is that when People come in, they feel like they're coming into a Sanctuary.

We're very picky about, not only who works here, but what we offer. All of the products we offer, right now, are through Pulling Down the Moon, and their products are triple-tested and the highest quality.

We really just want to help you to enjoy life to the fullest.

What is integrative care?

Integrative care combines traditional western medicine with complementary therapies such as yoga, nutrition, acupuncture, massage and counseling. A defining component to integrative care is that the complementary treatments are research-based and not meant to take the place of traditional medicine, but to support the whole person during treatment. Most importantly, integrative care is about treating the whole person and looking at all aspects of life – physical, emotional and spiritual.

NEW Teen Yoga & Wellness Program

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 5.49.29 PMWe all remember the years where we were desperate to fit in, where we were finding our true friends, when it seemed our bodies and our minds had lost a connection.  Those were our teenage years, where more than anything, we were just trying to figure out who we were.

Teens deserve all the love and care that they can get; to learn how to fit in, and learn how to be healthy. They deserve to reconnect their mind and bodies.  Mostly, they deserve to learn how to love themselves.

Omaha Integrative Care is excited to announce a teen yoga and wellness program offered to 6th through 12th graders. This program is an open and judgment free place to learn more about yoga and wellness. There will be positive mantras to focus on for the week as well as activities to instill motivation, creativity and individualism. Included will be an introduction to a variety of different types of yoga including Vinyasa, Iyengar, Hatha, Yin, and Restorative. This program will provide an introduction to all the body’s energy locks and begin to learn the benefits and uses of each one. Lastly, there will be an introduction to meditation including breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to learn to calm and energize the body.

Yoga benefits all types of people by cultivating skills in order to promote happiness and mature in life. Yoga will specifically give the teens a space and the opportunity to explore their bodies, become aware of their surroundings as well as focus on being  mindful. Yoga gives teens the ability and tools to self-soothe and heal themselves when things gets tough; and that can be the greatest lesson.

If you know a teen girl whom is ready to find herself, this will be for them!

The next session begins February 19th for 6th through 8th grade girls. The program is a 4-week session, meeting every Friday from February 19th through March 11th from 4:30-6:30pm. The cost of the 4-week session is $100 per teen, which includes a take home workbook and materials. Sessions will be held upstairs at Omaha Integrative Care located on the corner of 168th and Blondo Street.

REGISTER for the February 19th session.

Mindful Moment: Silence

white silence“Silence is like a cradle holding our endeavors and our will; a silent spaciousness sustains us in our work and at the same time connects us to larger worlds that, in the busyness of our daily struggle to achieve, we have not yet investigated. Silence is the soul’s break for freedom.”

David Whyte

Some ecologists, health professionals and others have taken on the challenge of finding true silence – see this BBC article for more on that interesting story.  It likely won’t surprise you that there are very few places in which we can find complete silence.  We have become accustomed to the background noises of traffic, airplanes, and the buzzing from electronics to the point that silence can even feel uncomfortable at times.  We crave it, yet when we have it we find ourselves turning on radio or starting up the computer.

In silence, we can connect to our minds, hearts and bodies.  Without the distraction of noise, we can truly listen to the moment we are in.  This week, experiment with spending time in silence.  Notice what you “hear” when you remove the noise and bring mindfulness to a silent moment.


Mindful moments are short practices to be used throughout your week to relax, integrate and center yourself.  Inspired by the wisdom traditions and science, mindful moments are meant to be accessible and simple enough for anyone to practice.  Many teachers and leaders in integrative medicine have influenced our approach to mindful moments. Jon Kabat-Zinn defines mindfulness as “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”  Pema Chodron would say it is “practicing in the gaps.”  Look for the weekly mindful moment every Monday.  May it support you in finding your center to live life to the fullest.
