I have been seeing Dr. Scott Richardson for over 2 years almost weekly. He has been instrumental in reducing my headaches and assisting me with healthy digestion. He has also helped me heal various injuries I've had.

Dr. Richardson is not only a great acupuncturist, but an incredible man as well! My wife has been battling with back/neck spasms for over a year, and Dr. Richardson is the only one who listens and understands how to help.

I saw Dr. Scott after I broke my 5th metatarsal bone and while I was still in my walker boot. The treatment was AWESOME! I had less swelling and bruising the next day and was able to put more weight on my foot without pain.
