Jon believes in empowering his patients with the tools necessary to take charge of their health. He takes the time to listen to his patient's concerns, answer all of their questions and educate them.
Jonathan Sasser holds a Master's degree in Oriental Medicine, is a Licensed Acupuncturist, and is board certified in Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He earned his Master's in Oriental Medicine and completed his Acupuncture training at Southwest Acupuncture College, in Boulder, Colorado. He also holds a Bachelor's degree in Sport's Medicine. He has over 3,000 hours of training in acupuncture, classical Oriental Medicine, herbal medicine and nutrition.
Jon's journey into natural medicine began when he found himself struggling with anxiety and depression. He resolved those challenges when he discovered and applied the power of whole food nutrition. He discovered acupuncture while experiencing debilitating back pain. Nothing else was helping, so he decided to try acupuncture. He was astounded when he experienced a huge improvement after his first treatment.
As he delved more deeply, he discovered the synergistic power of acupuncture and nutritional therapy to help the body resolve a myriad of different health challenges, both simple and complex.
Jonathan Sasser approaches health challenges in a different manner than what is traditionally experienced in health care today. Rather than chasing around individual symptoms, he helps his patients find the root cause of their problems.
To do that, Jon utilizes a highly effective evaluation process, the Complete Bio-Functional Analysis, that allows him to identify the underlying causes of health challenges. He then provides step-by-step guidance on what to do, and when to do it, in order to restore health.
What Makes Us Different
At Vital Health, we are different in that we look for what is going on underneath the symptoms you are experiencing. A symptom is simply your body's way of telling you that there is a problem that needs to be addressed. It's like having the check engine light come on in your car. You can put a piece of tape over it and cover up the symptom (like taking a drug to mask a symptom) or you can cut the check engine light out of the car (like removing an organ that is not functioning properly), but until you find out WHY the check engine light is coming on in the first place, the problem still exists. We do a lot of investigating to discover WHY your body is not functioning properly in the first place. What is going on "underneath the hood?" Once we discover WHY you are experiencing your symptom(s) in the first place, we are able to put together a comprehensive treatment plan to help you to re-claim optimal health.
