Fred Ragsdale III's Care Philosophy

At 1000 Folded Cranes, Dr. Ragsdale's style of acupuncture takes this esteemed healing practice from the realm of theory and esoterics into the direct experience of reality. Fred is a master diagnostician and by treating what he feels, both the practitioner and the patient have some immediate indication as to the effectiveness of the treatment. Fred's acupuncture combines classical Chinese medical principles with modern pathophysiology and western anatomy in a way that facilitates the understanding and brings out the best in treatment outcomes. As a rule, Fred's acupuncture is shallow and virtually painless.

Fred is a master diagnostician and by treating what he feels, both the practitioner and the patient have some immediate indication as to the effectiveness of the treatment.

Fred Ragsdale III says...

As Chinese Medicine views disease as disharmony within the holistic body, we are able to treat successfully a wide variety of seemingly unrelated conditions. 

Dealing with inflammation and muscular-skeletal injury from the perspective of a practitioner and an oft-injured athlete, our acupuncturist has years of experience treating sports injuries and chronic pain. 

With his empathetic nature, Fred is able to guide his patients toward a more balanced response to stress, stabilized mood, elevated energy and greater consciousness.

Leveraging his experience working in fertility clinics we offer expertise in treating a range of women's health concerns including menstruation, PMS, endometriosis, pelvic pain and more. 

Alongside acupuncture, 1000 Folded Cranes provides integrative strategies including dietary, exercise, herbal and meditative.
