Tony Baratta D.C. (Chiropractor)
My name is Dr. Tony Baratta and I have been a practicing chiropractor for the past 17 years. For 15 of those years, I have been right here in beautiful Carmichael, California.
My practice has gone through many changes over these years but I cannot be more excited about the most recent changes. I am a firm believer in holistic health and that doesn't stop at chiropractic care.
I feel that other alternative health options in conjunction with what I do can have a dramatic effect on a patient's well-being. Sometimes chiropractic care is not the answer and my ego is not that big to recognize that. I have always offered massage therapy at my office and have seen the beneficial results of both services--especially combined with each other. But I always felt like I could offer more to my patients.
That is why I have decided to expand my office here and open the door to other alternative practitioners, such as an acupuncturist and a Reiki healer.
I am in practice for one main purpose-- to get people well. This is not about reducing pain or eliminating headaches, it is about getting the patient to heal within both physically and emotionally.
I am proud to introduce the following services to the local community:
--Massage Therapy (Deep tissue, Thai, Swedish, Sports, Shiatsu and Myofascial Release)
--Acupuncture & Herbs
--Mindful Meditation (Classes or Private sessions)
--Weight Loss Programs
--Holistic Nutrition Counseling
I would also like to mention that I do work with several medical doctors in the area and refer to them on a regular basis. Sometimes alternative medicine requires some conventional intervention.
If you are interested in getting on the road to good health--through natural means--then I think that you will enjoy our center here in Carmichael, California.
With over 35 years of combined experience between our practitioners, your health and wellness will be in good, nurturing hands.
There is no time like now to make a change, a change that is not too late to make. You owe it to your spouse, significant other, your kids, your parents, loved ones and especially - yourself!
