Dr. Joni Stier, LAc, DC
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.

After suffering a traumatic leg injury in 1996 that kept him sidelined at the Olympics, The Hart Method training approach was created. Armando's road to recovery brought him a deeper connection to himself that created a synergistic relationship between his body, movement, and life. As a coach, trainer, author, speaker, and mentor, Armando's passionate about reminding others of their innate ability to move their lives forward efficiently and powerfully by grounding into their bodies with the essence of the 8 maxims of The Hart Method- Ground, Gravity, Integrity, Joy, Harmony, Freedom, Action, and Now.
Armando believes that we can incorporate powerful change by moving our body with a deeper sense of freedom and joy. He believes that we have developed a disconnection between mind and body due to the beliefs around success within society. He believes that this belief has resulted in us moving away from ourselves and our essence. His goal is to help individuals remember the power of truly being in our bodies. As a coach and trainer, he has mentored the youth in preserving their essence body, mind, and spirit. He has coached professional and Olympic athletes to maximize performance on and off the field. In 2012, he helped train Misty May-Treanor win her third Olympic Gold Medal.
Armando grew up in Long Beach California as 1st generation Mexican American in a low-income and high-crime environment. He attributes his accomplishments to the power of visualization in harmony with movement. Although his Olympic dream was cut short, he believes that his dream of being a change-maker is being actualized by once again embodying the maxims of his training system.
Armando believes that change within is more powerful than trying to make change on the outside. He believes that true and powerful change starts with our body, our breath, our thought, and movement. He reminds us that we have these tools available every morning upon awakening.
