Welcome to Stillpoint Family Healthcare
“Keeping your body healthy is an expression to the whole
cosmos – the trees, the clouds, everything.”
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Stillpoint Family Health Services (SFHS), headed by Dr. Michael Lipelt, is a full service family practice clinic located in beautiful and walkable downtown Sebastopol, CA, that uses a broad range of natural health modalities, including naturopathy, acupuncture, biological dentistry, and others to gently restore and maintain optimum health in your physical, emotional and mental bodies. SFHS uses methods to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities that work together with the body to restore its natural state of balance. Our focus is on supporting the bodies’ inherent healing ability, looking beyond the surface symptoms to find and treat the root causes. We use the least toxic and most natural therapies, educate you along the way such as on low-cost and home practices, and treat your whole person with dignity and respect.
SFHS understands that health and wholeness of the human body is directly related to the health and wholeness of the planet earth, and so incorporates the philosophies of environmentally sustainable medicine (ESM) and permaculture in our practice, by encouraging you to connect with and to preserve the earth. Your health and the health of the planet that supports and feeds you are unconditionally connected in a mutually interdependent relationship.
You can use SFHS services either by perusing our website which has a wealth of practical information, make an appointment for a phone consultation or an appointment for a full in-person consultation, where a thorough assessment of your whole history and current condition is taken and support and recommendations are given.
In addition, you may wish to talk to Dr. Lipelt about bringing your family for a visit to the Stillpoint Permaculture Center, located 30 minutes north of our office in beautiful, rural Healdsburg, CA. You can witness and learn about natural food growing methods, sustainable energy, pet the llamas, experience a community dance and music event at the geodesic dome, and in general, deeply experience your sacred connection with the land, in support of community health and wholeness.
