An NCCAOM board-certified acupuncture physician, Scott D. Nelson employs a plethora of wellness-inducing services to fight such maladies as back pain and stress and promote weight loss and fertility. Initial acupuncture visits begin with a consultation, during which Scott takes the long view of an individual's overall health, assesses their goals for treatment, and measures their anxiety level by suddenly popping a balloon. Afterward and on subsequent visits, he inserts very thin needles at key points on the body's energy pathways to release pent-up qi and restore the patient's vitality. Patients averse to needle-based therapy can opt for one of Scott's non-needle modalities, which extend to moxibustion, cupping, and electrotherapy, each adept at relieving chronic pains and aches.

Her therapeutic bodywork is grounded in the trigger-point technique?a deep-tissue modality that increases oxygen flow through focused kneading of the body's pressure points. The results are many, ranging from improved range of motion and circulation to a deep state of relaxation. Clients may also solicit the facility's other holistic services such as acupuncture and expert chiropractic care.
