The Carolina Center
Founded in 1994, the Carolina Center for Integrative Medicine assists patients of all ages in regaining their health and maintaining good health throughout their lives through proactive self care, scientifically-based complementary therapies, and preventive medicine. We believe that the best medicine involves the careful integration of conventional, complementary, and alternative therapies and that this approach will lead to safer, more affordable, and more effective healthcare. We believe that the most effective health care is aimed at comprehensively addressing the unique and diverse needs of each individual. We provide a range of biologically based, innovative treatments for chronic disease as well as self-care strategies for keeping people healthy over the long term. As the oldest integrative medicine facility in the Triangle area, the Carolina Center combines complementary, alternative, and conventional therapies in a systematic way so as to establish a strong foundation for health and healing.

Breast Cancer Screening
Carolina Thermascan has been providing Breast Thermography since 2004.
A Thermascan is highly effective in detecting breast abnormalities and an excellent tool for breast health risk assessment.
It involves no direct contact, carries no risk or side effects. It is pain-free, non-invasive, and carries NO risk of radiation exposure.
The sensitivity is superior to that of mammography and ideal in situations where mammograms tend to be inaccurate or unsafe.
