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



Rise Finkle - Stone Ridge Natural Medicine

At Stone Ridge Natural Medicine, I take these seven principals to heart. I believe that each person has an innate healing power within that may have become blocked. Obstacles to cure may be an offending food, an environmental toxin, a hormone or biochemical imbalance, a painful emotional or physical injury or stress.

Without identifying the cause, we are just masking the symptoms.

  • Treatments are carefully and individually designed to do no harm.
  • My goal is to promote optimal wellness through education without judgment or blame.
  • Each person is treated with compassion, dignity, and respect in exploring every dimension involved in the healing process involved towards achieving optimal vibrant health.

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine


Chinese Medicine is based on the concept of building, moving, or balancing Qi, the vital force.


After a thorough history and a tongue and pulse diagnosis, I use acupuncture, herbs, cupping, moxibustion, infrared, and tui na massage to rebalance the Qi.


Many people are afraid of needles, but only the most gentle approach with the finest needles are used so that you can stay calm and relaxed.

Stone Ridge Natural Medicine is located in the beautiful Hudson Valley, Ulster County, New York. We are 90 miles north of New York City and are within minutes from Woodstock, Kingston, New Paltz and Ellenville, NY
