Fred Ragsdale III's bio

This content was provided by Fred Ragsdale III "Known for his calm nature, smiling presence and effective treatments, Fred Ragsdale, L.Ac. has been treating patients around the world since 2008. Fred's mission is to share the belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Hundreds of people from all walks of life have found pain relief, both physical and emotional from Fred's gentle and highly skilled treatments. Fred has run successful acupuncture clinics in Los Angeles, Shanghai and Phuket. In Shanghai, he specialized in women's health and fertility and was successful in helping many patients with fertility issues, pregnancy concerns, and post-partum conditions. While in Phuket, the active lifestyle of the island lent a more orthopedic and pain management specialty to his practice and in addition to his own busy clinic, he was the team doctor for a variety of club sports including rugby, triathlon, and mixed martial arts. Fred received his B.A. in History from the University of California at Santa Barbara and spent ten years teaching high school and primary school in California, New York, Korea, and Taiwan before beginning medical school. He has traveled extensively around the world studying the healing traditions of many cultures; traditions he now incorporates into his own healing practices. He loves reading and writing, coaching little league and playing Tai Qi. Having recently moved back to his hometown of Los Angeles, with his wife and two young children, Fred is excited to introduce the community to his take on this ancient and profound medicine.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Fred Ragsdale III "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."
