Having studied in San Diego, China, and Taiwan, Scott has had the opportunity to learn from some of the top acupuncturists in the world. He honed those skills while working on cruise ships for 2 years, where he had a very short time to achieve results with his treatments. With most cruises being 7-12 days, if the patient wasn’t seeing results before they left, they weren’t satisfied. Thanks to his superior training, Scott was consistently one of the top over 100 acupuncturists working on cruise ships world wide. He treated royalty, professional athletes, elite business professionals, and even the ship’s captain, some of whom still see him here in Denver. As an Ironman Triathlete, Scott has a unique insight into the needs of athletes and active people. Whether someone is a professional athlete with a very specific exercise regime or a weekend warrior, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a great way to keep their body in balance and in the healthiest condition possible. One of the main reasons Scott chose to move to Denver was because of its reputation for healthy, active communities.
