Perth Amboy, NJ (PRWEB) January 26, 2015
Internist Nina K. Regevik, MD, FACP, co-director of the Division of Integrative Medicine and medical director of HIV services at Raritan Bay Medical Center (RBMC), recently achieved board certification from the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine.
Launched in 2004, the Division’s qualified and credentialed practitioners provide integrative therapies to enhance patients’ health and well-being at the hospital’s Old Bridge and Perth Amboy locations and Raritan Bay Area YMCA. Integrative Holistic Medicine refers to the art and science of healing that addresses care of the whole person: body, mind and spirit. Therapies include massage therapy and reflexology, energy medicine, Reiki, Qigong, Tai Chi, meditation and Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster workshops.
“RBMC recognizes that holistic medical care now represents state-of-the-art medical care,” says Dr. Regevik. “These therapies are used not only with folks who have health challenges, but for all people to help maintain good health. It is a privilege to be part of the RBMC team that is striving to achieve these goals.”
The American Board of Holistic Medicine was founded in 1996 and officially changed its name to the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine in 2008. The Vision of the ABIHM is to establish and maintain the highest standards of medical care, ignite and sustain the joy and passion of physicians in their work, establish the role of unconditional love as the basis of healing and support, and to recognize the importance of the health of the planet as integral to human health. The intention of this process is the transformation of medical systems towards holism, by combining science and compassion. The ABIHM is transforming into the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM) in early 2015.
