About Nicole Stone, MS, LAc

My journey into holistic medicine began at the age of 19 when I met my first mentor.  He taught me different forms of martial arts and qi gong and showed me the power of using my own energy, qi (pronounced chee) to strengthen, balance and heal the body.  Through meditation and mindful intention I learned how to calm the mind and let go of pain.  And with nutrition and herbs I experienced the great benefits of using food as medicine.  I am grateful for the healing journey that set me on a path toward acupuncture and all the knowledge I get to pass on to you.

​After decades of working with multiple mentors, coaches and healers I know first hand the benefits of self-care.  Sometimes the best healing is to simply go for a hike, stick your feet in the ocean, dance around the house or laugh with friends.

​I look forward to sharing my years of personal experience and education to help you along your journey to great health.

Nicole received her Masters of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California in 2000.

Nicole is also co-founder of Journeys of the Joyful Heart. A company her and her business partner Birgit Witherspoon (nutritionist) began in 2019 to offer online courses and in-person workshops for women.  After spending a combined 35 years working one-on-one with women and listening to their needs, wants, dreams and goals they came together to create this wonderful resource. 

Through the years Journeys has evolved from women's retreats and online personal growth courses to a five-step Natural Fertility program.  They saw the need as more are more couples in their mid-twenties were coming to them because they were struggling to get pregnant.  Their issues ranged from multiple miscarriages, poor sperm health, cysts or fibroids, and often just unexplained infertility.

Nicole specializes in gynecology, infertility, and preconception care, bringing the power of Chinese medicine to help women overcome painful periods and discover natural solutions for infertility. Birgit's personal experience with miscarriages fueled her passion for supporting women emotionally and nutritionally to create a calm and welcoming environment for healthy pregnancies. Together, they bring expertise, authenticity, and a nurturing presence to your fertility journey.

With much love & joy!
