Chinese medicine views the body as an energetic vessel and sees symptoms and disease as resulting from alterations in optimal energy flow. Acupuncture, using fine needles, is one of the pillars of Chinese medicine. Modern research has found it to be effective in addressing musculoskeletal pain, headaches, menstrual disorders, arthritis, bowel disturbances, fatigue, stress, respiratory issues, depression, symptoms of withdrawal, and more. It is well understood to be effective in preventing illness and promoting longevity. If you are new to this practice, you will find yourself intrigued; if you have received treatments before, you already know of its many benefits.
A wide variety of health issues can be treated and reversed by implementing nutrition, detox therapies, lifestyle counseling, and many other natural and safe treatment modalities. Each person is a whole and complex being, and I give special consideration to acknowledging every aspect of existence – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I work with patients usually for 10-12 visits, and guide them through a treatment plan that ultimately reverses illness. Testing is done monthly to monitor the healing process and to determine the next steps necessary to achieve complete wellness. Once a person has returned to health, they are given guidance to maintain wellness and prevent future illness.
With seeing increasing numbers of cases of the COVID-19 virus since the pandemic began in February, 2020, statewide and throughout the United States, our practice has instituted safety requirements such as masking, gloves, and handwashing, thus observing the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and other scientific authorities for clinics of our size. We also ask that each and every person who comes into the office fills out a pre-screening questionnaire and a phone interview prior to coming in for their visit.
Dr. Scott is happily married to a chiropractic physician (DC), having both cared for multiple Golden Retrievers over the years, 4 children (Go Gators!) and now 7 beautiful grandchildren and one on the way.
