Healing Happens at the Center

The Stram Center for Integrative Medicine , with two locations - Delmar, New York (just outside of Albany), and Bennington, Vermont - offers a holistic and empowering approach to your health.

Working together, they share their skill and knowledge so that you benefit from the very best in conventional and complementary therapies.

Whether your goal is to lessen pain, reduce stress, find alternatives to prescription medicines, or simply improve your quality of life, your Stram Center practitioner will create a personalized treatment plan to optimize your health and wellness.

Our integrated approach combines the latest advances in medical care to address all chronic illnesses, including Cancer and Chronic Lyme Disease.

Integrative Medicine is conventional medicine combined with scientifically supported complementary therapies.
