The body has the capacity to heal itself. If Kelli Scott could teach her clients at Starfire Family Clinic one thing, it would be that. Whether placing acupuncture needles along their meridians, explaining the benefits of Chinese herbs, or easing stress from their muscles with shiatsu massage, she keeps that principle in mind. But she also tries to make it stick in her clients. Throughout each of her treatments, Kelli teaches people to listen to their bodies, to note signs of disharmony, and to try to heal themselves before those imbalances grow into major problems. And yet, inspired by the holistic healing properties of ancient Chinese medicine, Kelli draws on her extensive medical-school training and time spent volunteering in Nepal as an acupuncturist to deliver thoughtful care to each of her patients.
