Scott has a wonderful balance of care and education – he has a very sensitive, supportive approach… a combination of care, humour, insight and experience.

Scott is gentle, funny, and super-keen in a good way. His passion for health is very apparent, and is contagious… Having been to many acupuncturists, I have found Scott’s treatments to be unusually effective… It is always my experience that I feel immediate relief from symptoms such as headache & anxiety after a session with Scott. I leave with profound feelings of calm and comfort.
