Dr. Joni Stier began her journey to become a holistic healer as a child watching her grandfather garden. He would snip stalks of parsley and aloe vera and tell her, “it’s good for you”. Intrigued by his awareness that health is a conscious activity, she came to expand upon the knowledge that our environment, how we nourish our bodies, how we move and what we think all affect our well being.

Joni continues her lifelong passion of understanding how to live a healthier, more fulfilling life through an integrated exploration of Western nutrition, herbology, Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture and Chiropractic.

Her approach to holistic care is a dynamic balance between ancient practices, intuitive creativity and current scientific research. She aims to treat the person, not just the symptom, by deep listening, perceptive observation and compassionate understanding.

Joni is board certified to practice acupuncture and chiropractic in the State of California and is an NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) Diplomate of Oriental Medicine.

In addition to acupuncture, Joni employs skills in Sacro Occipital Technique, Applied Kinesiology, Neuro Emotional Technique, and dietary and lifestyle advising to restore balance and awaken the body’s innate healing potential.

She deeply believes that when we are in our healthiest and most balanced state, our relationships, families and our communities become healthier as well. She is inspired by the community spirit of Long Beach and is honored to support you on your path to vibrant health.
