RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Chiropractic & Wellness Center recently welcomed Dr. Jonathon Kramer.
Kramer, a Connecticut native, is set to offer his acupuncture services at the practice. Dr. Christopher Mascetta, founder and director at the center, recently announced the staff would be opening new services.
“With the addition of Dr. Kramer, Ridgefield Chiropractic & Wellness Center will be adding another beneficial treatment option to our roster of natural and alternative healthcare services. RCWC is committed to the improved health and well-being of our community and our patients,” said Mascetta. “Dr. Jon works diligently and compassionately to help people live up to their fullest potential to achieve well being in mind, body and spirit.”
Kramer is a licensed practitioner of Oriental Medicine in Connecticut and Florida. He attended East West College of Natural Medicine, receiving a bachelor's degree in Health Sciences and a master's degree in Oriental Medicine.
“Acupuncture balances out the rhythms of the body,” said Kramer. “It provides a physiological picture of body function including excesses and deficiencies with circulatory, vascular, digestive, adrenal and other systems.”
Kramer uses a functional medicine approach and treats the body as a whole.
“With many life stressors placed on individuals today, an integrative approach to healing is essential," he said. "The interaction of one's environment and all of the body's systems is my focus in developing individual treatment plans tailored to each patient. Acupuncture is about treating the imbalances in each system."
Kramer said his patients typically experience minimal function by the time they start seeing the signs or feeling system imbalance.
“People don't pay enough attention to the signals they are getting from their bodies," he said. "This low-level function becomes their norm and cascades from there. We can restore functions of the body through various techniques in order to divert disease and prevent the body from getting to that critical point.”
