Treatment Philosophy

My treatment philosophy has two objectives: The first goal is to alleviate any pain that is causing the patient to suffer, and resolve the presenting symptoms in order to give some immediate relief. Secondly, and really the primary focus, is to reveal the root cause of the illness, which sometimes can be a long process of discovery. The treatment strategy is designed to be both comprehensive and functional, in order to uncover and resolve the root cause of the disease. During this part of the healing process the patient plays a much more active role in which they must participate in re-establishing balance in their life both physically and emotionally, as well as, spiritually. This requires the patient to make lifestyle modifications that are not limited to: changes in diet, incorporating exercise into their schedules, and using some form of a relaxation technique. This is all part of the healing process, and helps bring wholeness into the patient's life, and as your practitioner, I will be there to help you along on your pathway to wellness.

Bio
Scott is originally from Moline, IL., but moved to Chicago to pursue his Bachelor degree in 1998. He graduated from the University of IL. with a double major in Latin American Studies and Political Science. After graduating, he continued working as a construction contractor in the Chicago area, until 2005 when he decided to make a career change. He traded his hammer in for a needle, and began studying Traditional Chinese medicine, which was more in sync with his Tibetan Buddhist philosophy; and also gave him a chance to help people, which he enjoys very much.

In 2009, Scott obtained his Master's of Acupuncture (cum summa laude) from National Health Sciences University in Lombard, IL., and soon after, he began treating patients full time.

At the beginning of 2010, Scott decided to travel to Asia to further his skills in Chinese Medicine and to gain a comparative knowledge in other traditional systems of medicine. He spent 1 1/2 years in Thailand researching Thai herbs, Thai Traditional Medicine, and learning Vipassana meditation. He also volunteered at Wat Thung Bo Paen Rehabilitation Center for patients with paralysis, where he offered free acupuncture treatments to patients who had suffered from stroke. He then traveled through Malaysia and Indonesia gaining insight into local traditional systems of medicine that are regaining popularity with the masses.
