Dr. Rubiales, Naturopathic Medicine Doctor

Dr. Rubiales, ND, LAc

As a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist practicing in Sedona, Arizona, I specialize in integrating Chinese, naturopathic and mind-body medicine.

While pre-med in undergrad, I became frustrated with the limitations of conventional medicine.  This led me to study a more holistic approach to medicine. A graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, I have a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.

My practice is based on the principles of first doing no harm and identifying the cause of illness.  To identify the cause of illness, I often take time to do comprehensive functional medicine diagnostic workups.  

I am of Cuban heritage and fluent in Spanish.  Growing up in a bilingual and bi-cultural household and then studying Cultural Anthropology enables me to incorporate patients’ cultural backgrounds and beliefs into their treatments.  

I provide trauma informed patient centered care that addresses the whole person including body, mind, spirit and relationships.  I like to collaborate with patients as a team to create a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan. I have a special interest and passion for helping people with acute trauma and complex PTSD. 

I incorporate a variety of techniques into my treatment plan including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, bio-identical hormones, craniosacral therapy, mind-body medicine, counseling, homeopathy, nutrition and pharmaceutical medicines when necessary.  I often find that Chinese medicine and acupuncture support people in making better self-care choices.
