Pacific School Of Oriental Medicine?

The term holistic medicine can sometimes conjure up the picture of out of the mainstream, upscale hippies who put their healthcare in the faith of an untested science, while they thumb their noses at the norms of Western medicine. In reality, holistic medicine amounts to nothing more than a form of treatment which integrates Western medicine and Eastern medicine, according to Sandy Lussi of the Satori Spa in Katonah, New York.

So when Satori clients are referred in by their medical doctors, it naturally follows that they continue on with treatment that meets the best of both worlds. 'It's great to do both, because there's things that medication can do to really help,' she says, while the advantages Satori offers its clients are contained within.

That is within a person's own body. 'It really helps the body help itself,' she says of the drug she studied for four years (as did her Satori partner Gary Sapolin) at the Pacific School of Oriental Medicine in New York City. But her journey from Western Civilization to Eastern Medicine didn't take the shortest distance between two points.

At 17, she left Pound Ridge to attend College at the University of Colorado, where she majored in Geology with two years of study in Biology. She meandered off to California and made a living as a musician for several years after graduating.

So she returned to her starting point in 1995 and after three years of witnessing the results of such a 3000 year old technique at the Pacific School, she uprooted her focus from the study of herbs to practicing acupuncture. There she met Mr. Sapolin, who is a Katonah father of two boys, and formed a merger of knowledge in Satori that truly stretches across the prime meridian.

Prior to opening their own Spa four years ago, they practiced acupuncture within the same confines of the David Schwartz Medical Group in Chappaqua. Working in concert with this array of doctors to reduce the gap between the two forms of medicine, their experience today offer clients something much more when it came time for east to meet west.

Else the stress builds, the blood does not flow and that can lead to a variety of ailments, including pain. 'It's the number one thing people come in for,' she says, and the location usually represents the weakest portion of a person's body, she added.
