Johanne Gerstel, NMD
Dr. Gerstel was born in the Philippines but followed her family to grow and flourish in various cultural roots of Filipino, Singaporean, and American descent. This constant change in lifestyle helped to evolve her perseverance and versatility so that she could pursue a career in healthcare and research development. She finally settled down in Arizona to obtain her two Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Psychology at Arizona State University (ASU) while performing research in the field of neuroscience. On her journey to becoming a doctor, she decided to take a detour and worked in the field of behavioral health as a case manager and health and wellness coach for people with serious mental illness. It was during this time that Dr. Gerstel witnessed the lack of alternative therapies for behavioral health patients that spurred her passion to pursue a career that could provide an all-inclusive toolbox for her patients’ journey to better health. She enrolled in Sonoran University of Health Sciences (previously called Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine) and after four years of hard work became a licensed NMD or Naturopathic Medical Doctor. During this time, she also participated in botanical medicine research which she has continued to pursue in a Molecular and Cellular Biology PhD program at ASU.
Dr. Gerstel is trained in a variety of medical and wellness therapies including naturopathic family practice, trigger point therapy, acupuncture, botanical medicine, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, holistic counseling, nature cure, and energetic modalities such as craniosacral therapy and reiki. She is passionate about people’s mental health and well-being and believes the root of most conditions is connected to our management of stress and our hectic lifestyles along with processing traumatic experiences and any childhood suffering. Her main focus in her practice is mental health and counseling through the use of holistic alternative techniques, craniosacral, reiki, and acupuncture. Dr. Gerstel’s sessions are tailored to the patient and she will work with you in order to achieve your goals on your healing journey.
In her spare time, Dr. Gerstel reads, writes fiction novels, crochets, hikes, enjoys nature, and spends time with her husband and four fur/feather babies: Jelly the Dog, Jams the Cat, Kiwi the Lovebird, and Ruby the African Grey.
