A board-certified surgeon and podiatrist, Dr. Schaengold helms Plateau Foot & Ankle Clinic, where he diagnoses and treats a host of conditions plaguing the lower extremities. Every appointment begins with a thorough inventory of the patient’s history, followed by a comprehensive consultation. This not only allows Dr. Schaengold to prescribe the best treatment, but also to ensure his patients are well informed about their condition, treatment options, and the difference between toes and fingers.
Once a course of action is agreed upon, the doctor can begin treatment, be it laser surgery for warts, a nonsurgical shockwave therapy treatment for plantar fasciitis, or gait analysis and correction to alleviate lower-back, hip, and knee pain. And though Dr. Schaengold treats patients of all ages and lifestyles, he specializes in sports medicine, encouraging athletes to take preventive measures before embarking on new challenges.
Acupuncturist Jenni Lund backs up her skills with a lion's share of licenses and degrees, all of which she puts to use daily as the talent behind Red Lotus. But the story of how she got into acupuncture starts much earlier—and is rooted in her love of yoga. During her time studying yoga in Kathmandu, she learned the principles of Chinese medicine and knew she had found something she felt passionate about. After receiving her yoga teaching certificate, she returned to the US determined to earn a master's degree in acupuncture.
Always learning, Jenni continues to hone and add to her already expansive skill set. Under her care, clients can choose to add hot stone treatments to their acupuncture session for additional relaxation and her facial acupuncture treatments go the aesthetic route, helping to ease the signs of aging.
