Osher Center for Integrative Medicine

The UCSF Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, located on the Mount Zion campus, combines modern medicine with established healing practices from around the world. We offer a variety of treatments and services, ranging from integrative cancer therapies and women's health care to acupuncture, massage therapy and Ayurveda.

Our team includes specialists in cancer, women's health, chronic pain, repetitive strain injuries, headaches, heart disease, nutrition and healthy living. Patients typically spend an hour with their providers at the first visit to allow for a thorough discussion of concerns and goals.

In addition to patient care, we offer many lectures, classes, workshops and therapeutic programs for the public, with an emphasis on patient empowerment, disease prevention, and healing of the mind, body and spirit.
