Cherubino Health Center – History

 Enthusiastic Beginnings in Framingham

   We began our practice in 1982 in the Framingham Metrowest region of New England, with a different approach to health-care. Armed with several revolutionary techniques, fueled by the high-energy determination of Chiropractor, Dr. Ron Cherubino our founder, and grounded in a philosophy that the human body was naturally self-healing, we began working with patients.

Nearly ten years earlier, Dr. Cherubino had himself been rescued from the hopeless despair of chronic illness and total disability through the use of nontraditional medicine. (Read Dr. Ron’s story)

Freed from Pain

   From the very first patients we treated we saw remarkable results. Initially, most came for pain control looking for the services of a Chiropractor. People were freed from chronic pain, relieved from the need for constant medication, depression was lifted, and migraine headaches disappeared as people were restored to a better state of health.

Many of those first patients came to us as a last resort. They had been told that the conditions they suffered from were incurable, that there was no hope for improvement, and that their conditions would worsen with time.

Others came because they were tired of their dependence on pharmaceuticals and their harmful side effects. They were ready for a change.

Some were leery of procedures that they had been told were useless or even harmful. Most people that came, stayed. The vast majority of those people saw remarkable results. More and more people began to appreciate their Chiropractor and the the value of Holistic and Alternative Medicine.

Hopeful Future

   Through the years that have followed, we have continued to learn. We have helped thousands of people restore and maintain their health and overcome the conditions and diseases they came to us with. As we are all aware, times have changed and the acceptance of holistic medicine has grown. And while it remains for most an alternative to ordinary medicine, our successes have continued to mount. We continue to learn and develop new and better techniques and approaches. With them we are able to help our patients achieve better and better results.

Current Scientific Research On Energy 

Depiction of the electrical energy in the brain in blues, greens, purples and redsSince the time of the Greeks, two schools of thought have coexisted.  Indeed, the debate has raged, at times explosively, between men and women of learning as to whether the truth of existence is based in the School of Atomism or the School of Vitalism

Since the discovery of quantum physics and its development in the early 1920’s, scientists have struggled with these same concepts of matter versus energy. 

Current scientific research is shedding some much-needed light on this age-old debate. 

Research conducted by scientists such as Dr. Bruce Lipton is not only uncovering the mysteries of the human cell, but the essence of matter itself.  Consequently, we now have a much better understanding of the role that energy plays in the function and creation of the human body.

Albert Einstein is quoted as saying, “what we have heretofore referred to as matter is in reality energy.”

The verdict is in.  Vitalism has clearly won the debate and science itself has been the judge and jury. We encourage everyone with a thirst for truth and knowledge to further investigate this current research concerning energy and matter.

Our First Center’s Holistic Mission – About Us

by Dr. Ron Cherubino – Clinical Director of Cherubino Health Center

   The year was 1982 and I was prepared to take the medical world by storm. Having more enthusiasm than insight, I assumed that the reason traditional doctors weren’t practicing holistically was that they simply hadn’t been exposed to it.

   Based on my personal experience with holistic medicine, I envisioned hospitals becoming combination emergency rooms and holistic health centers. Unfortunately, my timing was a few decades off!

New England’s First Holistic Center Of Its Type

   Timing issues aside, I did open what turned out to be the first holistic center of its kind in New England, in the town of Framingham Massachusetts in that very year. I physically positioned the center directly next to Framingham Union Hospital.  The hospital emergency room was on one side of me and the Framingham Heart Study headquarters was located on the other side. Thanks to a series of one-way streets, you literally couldn’t leave the hospital area without passing by my center.


So there we were, the original Cherubino Health Center, located at 24 Myrtle St., Framingham, Massachusetts, 01701. I thought it was pretty clever positioning myself there and for the next 11 years I utilized that location to the advantage of our many patients as well as the surrounding medical community.

We won over quite a few people but didn’t quite have the world shaking impact I had hoped for. Nevertheless, if you needed a Framingham Chiropractor, we were certainly the place to go.

That notwithstanding, holistic health care principles are now starting to make their way into all branches of medicine both in this country and around the world. My timing might have been off by 40 years or so, but what are a few decades when you’re having fun.

At our new location where Framingham meets Southborough, our clinic offers a wider range of services than ever before. It also supports the dream I had over 40 years ago to create an interdisciplinary environment of health, healing, discussion, and education. We have made substantial progress in the past 40 years. But when it comes to holistic medicine, I am most excited when I imagine how much progress there will be over the next 40.
