SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Therapy Solutions’ new owners, Ron and Violet Firestone, took over the chiropractic practice in early May just as the practice celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Firestones acquired the business from previous owner Dustin Bouwhuis after he moved to Arizona.
Ron Firestone has been practicing medicine since 1972. Now semi-retired, he and his wife chose Dana Point because of the opportunity they found and their fond memories of past visits.
“We came here for religious retreats over the years,” Ron Firestone said. “When an opportunity came up in Dana Point, it was a good option because of our memories.”
Both are ordained in the Episcopalian tradition. Ron Firestone is a priest and a bishop while Violet Firestone is a deacon. In addition, they have been heavily involved in missionary work for three decades. The couple worked in Latin America (primarily in Bolivia) and Mexico for 30 years. During this time, Ron Firestone started university programs and the first school of nutrition in Bolivia.
Violet Firestone, a qualified California health worker, was a pioneer in psychotherapy in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. She was one of the first 30 psychologists in the city and founded the first school of psychology and social work there.
Ron Firestone is currently the only chiropractor at Therapy Solutions, and Violet Firestone is office manager.
“Our goal is to serve patients in a more leisurely fashion that high stress practices don’t always allow,” Ron Firestone said. “With the latest in technology we combine personal care, lasers for comfort, and nutrition to tailor treatments for a wide variety of patients.”
Therapy Solutions is currently open Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and other days by appointment.
