Meet Our Team
Chiropractor Tony Baratta DC
My name is Dr Tony Baratta and I have been a licensed chiropractor since 1997. I have been practicing here in beautiful Carmichael, California since 1999.
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.
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:
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Massage Therapy (Deep tissue, Thai, Swedish, Sports, Shiatsu and Myofascial Release)
- Reiki Sessions
- Mindful Meditation (Classes or Private sessions)
- Acupressure Sessions
- Weight Loss Programs
- Holistic Nutrition Counseling
- Wellness Classes
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!

Jaimie - Chiropractic Assistant
My name is Jaimie (jay-me) I am a Pacifica native and have been working in the medical industry since High School. Since moving to Sacramento I have worked for a couple years at Dental and Chiropractic offices. I have always wanted to find an office where I could combine my many years of office managing experience with my personal love of all forms of Holistic Healing. After becoming a part of Dr Baratta's team I knew this was the place I had been hoping for. I strive everyday to do my part to make sure patients leave feeling better than when they walked in and that all starts at the front desk.I truly believe having a caring and upbeat attitude travels from person to person. In my spare time I love yoga, meditation and anything else I can do to feel my best inside and out.
