Sarito's Mission Statement
"I strive to promote optimal physical and emotional health using a blend of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle counseling. I treat the individual, not the disease, and create professional and supportive alliances with my patients. I work closely with other care providers, including medical doctors, psychiatrists, and other practitioners to provide my patients with well-rounded integrative medicine. I believe in the integration of Eastern and Western medicine, and work to advance the understanding and practice of Chinese medicine within the Western medical context. I promote integration through education and research, and by applying my knowledge within the clinical context."
