                         Dr. Anthony Baratta, D.C.

                                 Dr. Tony Baratta has been a practicing chi                            chiropractor for the past 17 years.  For 15 of those years he has been right here in beautiful

Carmichael, California.

Dr. Baratta's practice has gone through many changes over these years but he says he "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".
