During Jack's apprenticeship period, Chinese doctors often hooked electrodes to inserted acupuncture needles. These needles were charged with a microcurrent in the 8-10 Hz frequency range. This particular microcurrent resembled the frequency generated by manual needle-twirling. 


In the late 1980's, Jack began experimenting with frequencies to help eliminate infections, including the use of a 1500-Hz frequency to correct a severe shingles outbreak. One 45-minute treatment completely arrested all pain, and within three days the large lesion was scabbed over and healing.


This success spurred Jack to use his testing apparatus to find new frequencies for other infections. 


In 1993, his frequencies first appeared on the Web, and Jack became known as a pioneer in this healing technology.


Eventually, Jack switched from acupuncture needles to painless light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which can cover large portions of the body and introduce the correct frequencies that kill pathogens.

 "Except the Lord build the house..."

(Psalm 127:1)

SonRidge Health Center was founded by highly respected health pioneer, Jack Garvy, Lic.Ac. Nearly half a century ago, Jack was a student in the very first acupuncture class held in the U.S. (New York City

1970). Jack then spent a decade studying nutrition and homeopathy in

Boston, MA, apprenticing with Chinese and Korean acupuncture masters (Ho Fen Shen, John Chang, James Tin So, Yun won Suh).

In 1980, following God's call in his life, Jack began private practice

in western North Carolina. In 1985, he opened the Energy Medicine

Clinic in the heart of Black Mountain.


Word of mouth testimonials alone began attracting 25-40 new patients a

week from around the country. By 1990, the clinic had grown to the

point that more space was needed.

Jack moved his clinic to 113 acres of nearby mountain land and changed the name of his practice to "SonRidge" - a specific honor to the true healer, Jesus Christ.

                      "...the Sun of righteousness will rise with

healing in its wings..."

                                                                  (Malachi 4:2)


By 1998, Jack and his wife Angela opened SonRidge Health Center, St.

Augustine continuing to serve others in need of preventative and

restorative healthcare.


In 2018, Jack asked Dr. Marty to come alongside to help continue the

vision. In 2019, this mantle of service was officially passed to Dr.

Marty, who gratefully and humbly continues God's work and Jack's never-ending mission to offer hope, healing and health to all who come

through SonRidge's doors.


To God be the Glory!
