About Scott Bartell
I bring a passion for Eastern medical philosophies to my work that started at a very young age. Inspired by personal experiences in my youth, I followed a lifelong path of learning and experiences that helped me grow into the knowledgeable, trustworthy practitioner I am today.
I hold a Masters degree in Acupuncture and practice and study meditation, yoga and martial arts. I practice a unique style of treatment that blends my experiences and education with a primary focus on Kototama Inochi Life Medicine.

Did you know?
Acupuncture needles are a lot smaller than standard hypodermic needles, and they do not draw blood and are not hollow.
My journey with Eastern Philosophies began at the young age of 10, when I was introduced to the practice of Mindful Meditation.
Frank Scannel, a retired Priest in Fond du lac, created a game to teach me about the valuable life practice. Attached to a bio feedback machine, we listened to guided meditation tapes together. The machine beeped at intervals that progressively became further apart as I reached deeper states of meditation. The challenge was to see how far apart I could get the beeps.
This is the beginning of a journey that eventual lead me to become a trained and experienced Eastern Medical Practitioner.
I spent seven years at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, studying a variety of subjects, with the last three years of my time there focused on Biology and Chemistry, working towards a Pre-Med degree.
In 1999, I moved to Boulder, CO. While there, I attended South West Acupuncture College and received a Masters Degree in Acupuncture. It was a very challenging four year program including 2,800 hours of classroom and clinic. South West Acupuncture College, which is known as one of the most rigorous programs in the country, has been ranked as one of the top three U.S. colleges of its kind.
I am also a Reiki Master and Teacher, with extensive studies focused on Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Bagua, Tuina, and Japanese Shiatsu.
Living in Colorado was a life-changing experience. I was exposed to many different forms of alternative health and lifestyles that I had never experienced. I furthered my studies in yoga and martial arts, and learned things that — along with my meditation practice, would greatly benefit me as well as increase what I am able to offer those around me, including my clients.
I am a Wisconsin native, born and raised in the Fox Valley. I have always enjoyed being a very active and athletic person, participating in baseball, wrestling, track, and football as a youth.
My move to Colorado enhanced my active lifestyle: I grew into an avid snowboarder, hiker and backpacker, and climbing a number of the 14,000 foot mountains of the Rockies. I enjoy mountain biking and became very passionate about riding my dirt bike through thousands of miles of trails in the Rocky Mountains.
