Patricia A. Muehsam

Patricia A. Muehsam, MD, a pioneer in the synthesis of science, holistic health, and contemporary spirituality, has distinguished herself as a practitioner, educator, and research scientist. Dr. Muehsam has been an influential force in shaping the landscape of healthcare options available today. As a thought leader, she was invited to participate in the National Institutes of Health–sponsored endeavors to investigate health-care practices outside the realm of Western medicine, which led to the government mandated formation of the Office of Alternative Medicine, now the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. Dr. Muehsam founded the Association of American Medical Colleges’ first initiative in alternative and complementary medicine, leading medical schools throughout the United States to add courses in the field. Her original bioelectromagnetics laboratory research at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine investigated distance healing, Qigong, and homeopathy. Inspired by her personal experiences bearing witness to cures that defied conventional medical thinking, Dr. Muehsam pursued training in acupuncture, Ayurveda, homeopathy, mind-body medicine, yoga, energy medicine practices, and functional medicine. She is the founder of Transformational Medicine™, a whole-person approach to healing, wellness, and living. Her services include health consultations, mind-body healing sessions, in-person and online workshops, courses, and retreats. A musician since early childhood, she plays piano and flute, and sings. Nowadays, she mostly sings — jazz, gospel, and classical choral music. Dr. Muehsam resides in New York City and is “mom” to an eternal puppy, her adopted golden retriever, Benjamin.
