Welcome to improved health.

The mission of 1000 Folded Cranes is therapeutic healing and wellness through acupuncture and other holistic techniques including Shiatsu massage, moxibustion, cupping therapy, and herbal remedies, thereby creating lifelong relationships built on trust, good health, and successful treatment outcomes.  Based in Southern California and spanning West Los Angeles (West Hollywood, Miracle Mile), Silver Lake, and the South Bay (beach cities and Torrance), patients receive expert care in their own homes, work place or at one of our neighborhood clinics.

 Fred Ragsdale, L.Ac. is a Master Chinese Herbalist and graduate of Five Branches University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Santa Cruz, California who is also certified as Diplomat of Oriental Medicine from the National Certification Commission for Oriental Medicine.  Through his clinic experience and post-graduate studies in Shanghai and Phuket, Fred has mastered an integrated and patient-centric approach which provides immediate pain relief and long term healing for a variety of  conditions including musculoskeletal and internal diseases.  In Shanghai, Fred was able to expand his breadth of practice by specializing in women’s health and fertility, successfully helping many patients with their pregnancy and post-partum conditions.  With an emphasis on personal well-being and transformation, Fred provides the most effective, mobile acupuncture service for acute and chronic pain for all patients, young and old.

 Fred’s compassionate care creates physical harmony and heals the whole body, promotes hormonal balance and restores energy. He is dedicated to his patients and understands that pain is the body’s way of expressing an imbalance. Your customized treatment will focus on healing and restoration so that your body can strengthen itself from within and allow you to enjoy a life filled with quality and joy.

 I encourage you to begin your personal transformation starting today and experience how Asian medical traditions, core values and clinical expertise can ensure prolonged health and inner-peace. Contact 1000 Folded Cranes and begin taking steps on your journey of wellness.
