Knox Wellness

Holistic Health Team Brings Integrative Medicine Practice to Knoxville

Knox Wellness, a full-service wellness clinic that offers a wide variety of therapies to address patients’ holistic health, is now operating in West Knoxville under the direction of Dr. Chris Siano. Rather than using a symptom focused approach, Knox Wellness draws from several established disciplines – such as traditional medicine, osteopathic medicine, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, and massage therapy – in order to effectively treat the whole person.

“We are the go-to clinic for those who have been the conventional medicine route, yet are looking for a different approach, either because they are still symptomatic or because they want to get to the root cause of their problems,” said Dr. Siano. “Our focus is not only on symptoms and disease, but also prevention and optimal functioning.”

The key to the Knox Wellness approach lies in their commitment to patients’ individualized diagnoses and treatments. Unlike traditional practices, Knox Wellness provides consultations that allow the necessary time to collaborate with patients regarding their final treatment decisions, meaning that patient and caregiver truly become a team, working together to develop a diagnostic plan that will best address their specific needs.

“Our goal is to provide each individual with a wellness road map to not only help with their symptoms, but to help them achieve optimal health,” said Emily Kopek, PA-C. “Too many times in medicine we focus only on the absence of disease and not preventative medicine and wellness.”

This “wellness road map” is created in part by a battery of unique, specialty testing – including testing for food sensitivities, stress hormone testing, neurotransmitter testing, and functional gut testing – that give the Knox Wellness team a thorough overview of the patient’s health. Additionally, diet and nutrition receive intense focus, further differentiating the Knox Wellness approach from that of traditional practices. The goal, according to Dr. Siano, is to view the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions and treat the “whole person.”
