Complementary therapies


Treating the Whole Person

Complementary medicine refers to incorporating or recommending other healing modalities as part of a course of treatment for any given medical condition. The term refers to the fact that the additional therapy is a complement to the primary course of medical treatment. 

Dr. Gary Lewis is one of the pioneers in Southeastern Wisconsin of the practice of complementary medicine. He has been leading the way in this arena for more than 25 years. Starting back in medical school, he incorporated training in naturopathy and applied kinesiology into his conventional medicine studies. Early on in his medical career, he studied energy medicine with Rosalyn Bruyere and, later, trained in Medical Acupuncture at the prestigious Helms Institute at Stanford University, from which he graduated in 2002.

Within his existing conventional family practice medical practice, Dr. Lewis also offers Medical Acupuncture.


Thiensville Health Alliance

Numerous other complementary modalities and therapists are available within the Thiensville Health Alliance building, where Dr. Lewis's practice is located. Dr. Lewis created the concept for Thiensville Health Alliance and co-owns the building with Andy Mayerson.  

Dr. Lewis's vision for Thiensville Health Alliance is to have a variety of therapies available to recommend to his patients in order to treat the whole person. Patients can either opt to have Dr. Lewis create a complementary medicine program for them, or directly select those therapies that appeal to them.
