IMI (Integrated Medicine Institute) is a trusted natural and integrated medicine clinic, with a natural medicine and herbal dispensary that carries some of the world’s best quality, clinical-grade supplements and health products. Established for over twenty years, we have a long history in the complex and rapidly expanding field of natural medicine.
Over the years IMI’s practitioners have supported thousands of people back to health, and through this understand the complexity to achieve optimal health and total wellbeing in mind, body, emotions, and spirit. In light of this, in 2011 we revised our philosophy to create "Heal. Balance. Evolve." with the intention to take the vision of integrative medicine to the next level and to empower our clients to achieve optimal healing.
To meet this new vision, the scope of our services expanded significantly. Now IMI has over 25 medical and natural health practitioners to facilitate an integrative approach. Our diverse team includes licensed naturopathic physicians, homeopaths, medical doctors, clinical nutritionists, Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, Chinese and Japanese acupuncturists, osteopaths, chiropractic doctors, psychologists, counsellors and a range of practitioners offering natural and holistic therapies.
We also recognize that in this rapidly growing field of natural medicine, many modalities are not very well regulated and qualifications and training of practitioners may vary considerably. At IMI, we take great care to select authentic doctors and qualified practitioners, many of whom have years of experience in their chosen fields. We are committed to continuously improve and uphold the standards of practice in integrative and natural medicine. Whatever our expertise, we all share a belief in natural health and the innate healing power of our clients.
We support the whole family, from new-borns and babies, growing children and teens, to adult men and women to stay healthy and achieve optimal well-being during the various phases of their lives.

Many other IMI practitioners have also played a key role to the “IMI partnership” contributing to the vision, concept and development of IMI in the wider sense, beyond their own personal practice.
IMI, although based in the very transient city of Hong Kong has enjoyed a loyal staff team, and are grateful to staff both past and present who have contributed to IMI’s vision and practice on a daily basis. This sense of community, and having IMI be a genuine resource within Hong Kong, is something which IMI holds the intention to continue to foster.
