Welcome to Stone Ridge Natural Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine:
“In Naturopathic Medicine, we look for the underlying cause of the imbalance. We treat the whole person — mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.”

Naturopathic Medicine is based upon seven key principals:

  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Identify and Treat the Cause
  • First Do No Harm
  • Doctor as Teacher
  • Treat the Whole Person
  • Prevention
  • Wellness

In treating patients, we take these seven principals to heart. We believe that each person does have an innate healing power within that may have become blocked. Obstacles to cure may be an offending food, an environmental toxin, a hormone imbalance, a painful injury, or emotional stress. That is why it is so important to identify the causes, otherwise we are just masking the symptoms. Our treatments are carefully and individually chosen as to do no harm. Our goal is to promote optimal wellness through education, without judgment or blame. We treat each person with compassion and respect, exploring every dimension involved in the healing process involved in the whole person. And once we achieve that goal of cure or just making you feel better, our next goal is prevention and wellness - optiimal vibrant health.

Traditional Chinese Medicine:
Chinese Medicine is based on the concept of building, moving, or balancing Qi, the vital force. Each person is individually assessed for deficiency, excess, or stagnation of that energy. Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is all about balance, adds a whole new dimension to healing.

We use acupuncture, tui na (Chinese massage), moxibustion (warming with herbs) or Chinese herbs to rebalance the Qi.

Some people are afraid to try acupuncture because they think it hurts. We try to use the most gentle technique to make your treatment a relaxing one. Needles are as fine as a hair and treatments are designed to calm and relax. Acupuncture is a wonderful adjunct to chiropractic and other body work.

Chinese herbs are inexpensive, fast acting, and work beautifully.
