Meet the Doctors

Meet Dr. Michelle Arietta


Chiropractor Rocklin, Dr. Michelle AriettaAfter an accident in High School left her with disabling lower back pain, Dr. Michelle’s Dad encouraged her to go to a chiropractor that “sees kids”. She was 17 at the time, and her dad took her in using crutches, and after a thorough exam, x-rays and adjustment, she gingerly walked out without the crutches. The next couple of weeks she continued to improve and returned to cheering at Placer High School. While in undergrad at Sierra College, Dr. Michelle saw a job board posting looking for a chiropractic assistant. She thought it sounded interesting, applied, and got the job. ,”All of a sudden, I was around these happy people who were hugging everybody, and so passionate about what they did. I thought ‘these are my people!’”

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

For Dr. Michelle, she realized that she would become a chiropractor coming back from a seminar in San Francisco with the chiropractors she first worked for. “We had heard a speaker, and for some reason that night I thought, ‘I think I could do this. I could be a chiropractor.’” She continued working in the chiropractic office through undergrad and it soon became time to begin the road to chiropractic school. It was during that time working as a CA, that Dr. Michelle distinctly recalls a poster hanging in the office. It said, “If drugs are so bad you have to stop taking them when you are pregnant, what makes them ok when you are not?” It was so obvious to Dr. Michelle that chiropractic care during pregnancy went together like peanut butter and jelly. Dr. Michelle earned her Doctor of Chiropractic from Life Chiropractic College West, graduating in 2002, and has been Webster Certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) ever since.

Helping Kids Naturally

Because the brain, spinal cord and spine have such an intimate relationship, it is imperitive that kids be checked by a pediatric chiropractor to ensure healthy neurodevelopment. Dr. Michelle has invested hundreds of hours in post graduate education focusing on prenatal, pediatric, and family wellness care. She is in the process of completing an additional certification through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Having a thorough understanding of neurodevelopment and children’s health ensures that your child is in the best hands. Dr. Michelle is a firm believer that every child is different and each care plan and adjustment is specifically customized for your child’s needs. Adjustments for babies and infants are extremely gentle and often use less pressure than you might use to check the ripeness of a tomato without denting it. Her youngest adjustment was given to a newborn just 30 minutes old. Whether they’re minutes old, toddlers, children or teenagers, every child can benefit from chiropractic.


Enjoying an Active Life

When she’s not at the practice, Dr. Michelle and her husband, Joshua, enjoy spending time together, along with their dog, Angel, (a pit bull rescue). They love spending time in the outdoors, whether camping or kayaking, floating in the American River, and traveling to some of their favorite places. Their home is always open to friends and family and together they love hosting and entertaining guests. They also enjoy wine tasting, and are Forever Faithful 49ers football fans.

Meet Dr. Juli Mazi

Dr. Mazi

Naturopathic Doctor – California

Dr. Juli Mazi is a licensed primary care doctor whose aim and passion is to empower her patients to heal. She believes in and holds deep respect for everyone’s innate ability to discover and find a path to their own well being.

Dr. Mazi received her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon where she trained in the traditional medical sciences as well as ancient and modern modalities that rely on the restorative power of Nature to heal.

What patients notice first about Dr. Mazi is that she radiates the vibrant health she is committed to helping her patients achieve. Her positive outlook inspires confidence; her deep well of calm puts people at immediate ease. The second thing they notice is that truly she listens. Her very presence is healing.

Her clinical expertise includes:

  • Classical Homeopathy
  • Gynecology and Women’s Health
  • Acute Care
  • Geriatric care
  • Botanical Medicine
  • Mood and Behavioral Medicine
  • Nutrition and Nutraceutical Medicine

  • IV Therapy
  • Pediatrics
  • Men’s Health
  • Digestive Health
  • Grief Recovery
  • Adjuvant Cancer Care
  • Autoimmunity

At a very early age, Dr. Mazi felt the call to be a healer and a teacher. Her spirit of investigation came alive when she discovered her strong connection to the plant world. Fascinated by nutrition and the medicinal properties of food and herbs, she experimented with various diets, and searched out exotic fruits, vegetables, and herbs to discover their effects for herself.  Throughout her life, Dr. Mazi has experienced many different healing modalities, so that she may honestly refer her patients for modalities she knows and understands from her own experience.

Crossroads to Naturopathic Medicine

A life-changing experience led her to choose naturopathic medicine when she was in college. She fell in love with a young man with cystic fibrosis and witnessed the failure of the conventional medical science to help him. She began researching natural treatments and together they tried various regimens, including physiotherapy, herbs, and vitamin-mineral therapy, but, as Dr. Mazi sadly recalls, “His pharmaceutical load made it impossible for him to truly thrive.” It was this experience that inspired Juli to pursue natural medicine.

Family of Educators

Dr. Mazi comes from a family of notable educators. Her grandfather founded both Portland State University and Ohlone College; her grandmother was a high school teacher for many years, her mother taught kindergarten for 40 years, and her father was a college professor, who worked with students on their doctoral theses. Dr. Mazi shares her family’s passion to educate.

“When someone has knowledge and understanding of their health problem—and the array of holistic and non-toxic therapies that are available to them, that patient is now at the helm of their own healing.” – Dr. Mazi

The Power of Compassionate Inquiry

Before embarking on her naturopathic studies, Dr. Mazi earned an undergraduate and master’s degree in Communications Studies and taught Non-Violent Communication and Conflict Resolution at Portland State. Her skills and training in interpersonal communication define her signature approach—which is to use the power of compassionate inquiry to guide each patient to value their own understanding and to discover what their best choices are for healing.

Membership & Standing

Dr. Juli Mazi is a member in good standing of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association and the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP).

Personal Passions

Dr. Mazi and her partner love cooking medicinal meals and enjoy hiking, camping and exploring the gorgeous nature of California’s coastal landscape. Dr. Mazi is especially inspired to make music, another one of her healing modalities, and she enjoys singing and dancing. She has a deep love of art in its many forms including medicine.
