A Family Care and Pain Clinic
1000 Folded Cranes Acupuncture and Family Health Clinic provide therapeutic healing and wellness for the entire family. Dr. Fred Ragsdale, DACM, is a primary care physician trained in Western and Complementary medicine. Although most people first visit an acupuncturist for pain therapy, Dr. Ragsdale also has over a decade of treating gynecological, pediatric, psycho-emotional, and auto-immune conditions. Common healing techniques include acupuncture, cupping therapy, physical therapy, dry needling (trigger point therapy), cold laser therapy, and other holistic techniques, eastern and western.
Our clinic is at the nexus of West Hollywood, Miracle Mile, Beverly Grove, and Koreatown while offering a mobile-care program (at-home or workplace), for your convenience. As a primary care physician, Dr. Ragsdale orders and analyzes x-rays, MRIs, blood panels, and other diagnostic tools, providing the most effective acupuncture and family medical services in West Hollywood/Miracle Mile. We treat acute and chronic pain for all ages, including children, with an emphasis on personal well-being and transformation.
“My back pain has been resolved thanks to Dr. Ragsdale. By my 4th acupuncture visit, I was more than 50% better. He’s awesome!” – S. Stewart
Treating more than symptoms
By combining Chinese and Western medicine, it provides a unique approach to treatment. A good practitioner will treat the symptom or “branch”, while also treating the underlying condition or “root.”

Dr. Fred Ragsdale offers Dry Needling (Trigger Point Therapy).
By releasing trigger points with dry needling, it promotes a natural healing response. As muscle fibers begin to relax, the pain associated with the tightness begins to fade, which promotes the release of histamines, relaxing blood vessels, and increasing blood flow into the area.
Trigger points are very common. Learn more
Dr. Fred Ragsdale, DACM, L.Ac. has over 4,000 hours of clinical training in Western and Eastern Medicine and over the last ten years has treated thousands of patients, young and old.

“Dr. Ragsdale is amazing! I have tons of back and leg issues from spinal surgery a few years ago, and reoccurring injuries. The needles and cupping really help the healing process by increasing blood flow and loosening tight muscle fascia in my sore/injured spots.
The best part is how attentive and patient he is! He takes the time to really listen to your issues and does his best to accommodate to bring the best healing results. See him and get your pains washed away!”
