At CRANY Health, we believe that in order to address a particular disease and stimulate the healing process, a health practitioner must first determine the cause of illness.
Most causes of various illnesses are found in the body’s structure. Isolating and correcting these abnormalities seems to be one of the most effective ways of dealing with health issues within the body’s systems, organs, and various segments of the body.





Dr. Cristian Rachitan, N.D., has been involved in health care for more than 25 years. Before establishing his practice in New York, he spent extended periods of time in Asia (India, Thailand, the Philippines etc.). Here, he conducted research for the purpose of learning and understanding various Eastern medical techniques and philosophies.


Dr. Rachitan provides a combination of various physical modalities, such as manual manipulations, stretching and strengthening exercises, along with herbal remedies, supplements, and lifestyle counseling.
He is currently working on a book about the Naturopathic and Holistic approaches to Osteoarthritis, to be published shortly.



“I become a partner to my patients in pursuit of their health and healing. I guide my patients towards optimal health by localizing and addressing the cause of the problem. In other words, after I learn of the patient’s illness and symptoms, I then search for, and establish its underlying cause. I believe that, other than viral, bacterial, or parasitic infections, most illnesses are caused by, or related to, disturbances in the body’s structure. These structural disturbances can be hereditary, or can occur throughout the lifetime due to trauma (accidents).“ – Dr. Cristian Rachitan, N.D.
