Medical Director

Dr. David Spiegel, Willson Professor and Associate Chair of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, is Director of the research-focused Center on Stress and Health at Stanford University School of Medicine. He has authored more than 375 research papers and chapters in scientific journals and books, and numerous awards for his research on mind/body medicine. He co-authored Trance and Treatment (2004), a standard textbook on the clinical uses of hypnosis. Dr. Spiegel was featured on Bill Moyer's ground-breaking PBS series Healing and the Mind.

Information about Stanford's research on stress and health, mind/body medicine, and effectiveness of complementary treatments is available on the Stanford Psychosocial Treatment Laboratory site.

About Health Plan Coverage

Because coverage of integrative medicine clinical services varies widely among health plans, patients are responsible for payment of services. 

Insurance plans do not cover classes or massage. Please discuss your insurance eligibility and benefits when you schedule an appointment for clinical services. 

Payment for all self-pay services is expected prior to receiving the services.
