An Integrative Health approach to myofascial pain incorporates nutrition, yoga, tai chi, meditation, dietary supplements, massage, and other integrative and complementary practices.

Integrative Health emphasizes mindful awareness and patient self-care along with conventional and integrative approaches to health and well-being. The Circle of Health highlights eight areas of self-care: Physical Activity, Surroundings, Personal Development, Nutrition, Recharge, Family Friends, & Co-Workers, Spirit & Soul, and Mind & Emotions. The narrative in Myofascial Pain Overview shows what an Integrative Health clinical visit could look like and how to apply the latest research on complementary and integrative health to myofascial pain.
