Leila-Scott Price is amazing!  This was my first acupuncture experience and I was quite nervous going in. She spent a great deal of time asking about my history and listening to my health needs. Incredibly professional, wonderful atmosphere, and excellent acupuncturist!

I went for my first ever acupuncture session with Leila-Scott. First of all, being in the middle of the city, it is a beautiful serene space. The treatment was gentle, mindful and I felt really relaxed (and almost transported) afterwards. My chronic headache that I’ve had for 3 weeks is gone!

The Center’s Acupuncture has helped with many different areas in my life and I continue to come back because of the wonderful bedside manner, compassionate care and treatments that work! Highly recommend The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences and Leila-Scott Mitchell Price!!

Leila is an amazing therapist. She makes you feel at ease and really listens, her space is warm and inviting as well. Im lucky to have found her.

Leila has a true gift. After only one session with her, I had amazing results and plan to go weekly!  I struggled driving there because of a pst seizure disorder that can make me feel uncomfortable when I drive, and after my session, I drove home feeling grounded and completely at ease. Can’t wait for my next session!

Leila-Scott Mitchell is absolutely amazing! She’s not only a wonderful acupuncturist but a kind, warm person. She has a background in nutrition, so she is able to make suggestions for lifestyle changes that can be extremely helpful. I highly recommend her!

I had a very nasty frozen shoulder (i am 56) and I had all kids of physical therapy that did not work. Then I went to Leila-Scott and after just 10 acupuncture sessions, my shoulder is just fine! She did a great job and is so gentle, kind and very knowledgeable. I will most defiantly see her again.

Leila Scott made my first experience with acupuncture wonderful.  She spent the time listening to me and made suggestions that I can begin immediately to feel better.  I left feeling very relaxed and I’m excited to go back!

“John Price brings an incredible energy and focus toward self-awareness. Whether he is facilitating staff or working directly with students, he demonstrates incredible listening skills that let people know they are being heard. His presence inspires trust and confidence that brings out the best in everyone. I have seen John lead two students to collaboratively problem solve their differences and lead a room full of parents to explore their hidden fears about raising their children. I have attended countless lecture and speaker events, including many notable, acclaimed experts in education, wellness, and parenting. As a speaker, John is charming and skilled at connecting with people, and has a way of making a room full of people feel like they are in a personal conversation with him. He connects with his audience with authenticity and grace like few speakers I have experienced.”

Among the most important conversations of contemporary mental health is that of developing a psycho/spiritual world view.  John Price is well trained and prepared for this conversation, I know because I have been his teacher and student.

I really enjoy my sessions with Leila. She listens and takes time to answer questions, and she is very knowledgeable. I walk out of there beyond relaxed and love that I am able to use a holistic approach to improve my health.

Leila is an expert practitioner and a wonderful person. Her experience and kindness make every acupuncture session an enjoyable and healing experience.

When your body doesn’t behave like you are told it should, it can be incredibly frustrating.  And when you go to innumerable doctors who are also unable to correct the issues through the use of pharmaceuticals that wreak havoc on your body and procedures that turn you inside out, it is even more upsetting.  I have struggled with fertility cycle irregularity for years and have endured years of medical treatments in an unsuccessful attempt to resolve the problems.  If you have walked this path, you have likely pondered exploring options beyond the traditional western medical route.

After receiving treatments from Leila-Scott for a month and a half, I began to have regular cycles.  This may seem like small potatoes if you haven’t dealt with fertility problems, but I assure you that it is a tremendous achievement in my world.  I would highly recommend her services to anyone, but especially anyone who feels like there must be a better alternative.

Leila-Scott Price is a beautiful and talented healer, and, even more so, she is spectacular inside and out.  I hope that you take the same leap of faith that I did because Leila-Scott has proven to be a true blessing in my life.  Blessings and best wishes to you.  🙂

Although I’ve spent a lifetime declining to have any extra needles poked into me than absolutely necessary, as soon as Leila-Scott opened her practice, I signed up for her acupuncture treatments. Leila-Scott is intelligent, insightful, thoughtful, and a natural healer. I never hesitated or worried about how the session would go, I simply placed myself under her care and was totally pleased with the results. I strongly encourage anyone considering acupuncture to visit Leila-Scott – she is terrific.


Kathryn K

Have been treated by at least 4 other Acupuncture professionals but never with the success or satisfaction that I have had with Leila-Scott.  She is so gentle and thorough, spending a great deal of time listening to you and assessing your general health. Her studio is attractive and relaxing and oh so clean. I know through this bad season of colds and flu, my resistance has been greatly improved and I will see her again.

If you want to experience the best of the best, Leila Scott at The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences is the place to go. The atmosphere and procedure is calming, healing, and refreshing. Lelia is an expert at finding the exact points for your acupuncture needs. The procedure has helped me gain insight into “healing” my body, mind, and soul. Leila is a pro!


Lauren L

I felt welcome, calm and energized for a change. Leila Scott really clarified my needs and made clear suggestions that I could make happen immediately.


Lisa M

Had a wonderful experience at The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences and with the acupuncturist Leila-Scott. Gentle, and peaceful I was left to float out after a wonderful session. I had a great experience with the specific areas she worked on and felt I continued to improve even after the session.


Lisa M

Thank you so much for the wonderful session today. Was A M A Z I N G!


Lisa M

Amazing pain relief!  Thank you Leila-Scott for your treatments!


Lou S

I visited Leila Scott for my first-ever acupuncture experience.  She spent a lot of time with me and made me feel completely at ease.  I felt a difference in some of my symptoms as soon as I got off the table!  I will be going back for more soon.

Regarding a talk given by John Price:
 “I wanted to take a minute to say thank you for today.  It was absolutely perfect, and it really provided our team with such rich information.
I talked with a few teachers after the training and they said they were “inspired to work more with the children”.  I know for me personally, it truly inspired me as a mother and as an educator.  It really shed new light on many situations for me.  I am so grateful that I was able to learn from you, John.  I feel it will help me be a better mentor to our children.
So, thank you.  I hope this was the first of many more to come!”

I see Leila-Scott Mitchell to help maintain general wellness and manage stress.  Her care has helped so much!  She listens and is highly knowledgeable.  Despite regularly meditating, I have never achieved a state of relaxation as deep as her acupuncture takes me.  I would highly recommend her services to anyone!!


Pam R

I have been amazed at the results that Leila-Scott has achieved with acupuncture in relieving my knee pain and increasing my mobility. She is thorough, intelligent, compassionate and a great listener.

In addition, her treatment areas and office are an oasis of calm.  In addition to the benefits of the acupuncture, I always leave each session relaxed, rested and refreshed.

I highly recommend Leila-Scott and feel so lucky that I was referred to her!


Rocky G

My experience at The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences was very pleasant both the surroundings and Leila-Scott made you feel at home. Been using acupuncture for quite a while today was my first visit at The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences but it certainly will not be my last.


Sari M

I knew of Leila-Scott through yoga and felt she was a natural healer in her teaching. I had been seeking complimentary/alternative health options for healing, and was delighted to learn that she was practicing acupuncture and food therapy. All of my sessions have been helpful and healing and have brought new light my way.

If you are looking for a great acupuncturist this is the place to try. Leila-Scott has a very skillful touch. Her needling technique is very gentle, yet effective. The environment of The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences is very soothing and relaxing. When I walked into my first treatment I felt relaxed the moment I set foot in the door. If Acupuncture is scary to you, try this place and your mind will be eased immediately. Leila-Scott gives careful attention to each case and I have never felt dismissed or rushed during my treatments. Under her care, I have only felt an improvement in many aspects I didn’t even expect to see results in. My sleep improved, my energy levels went up, and I even noticed my mood improved (which my husband also benefited from). If you try The Center for the Healing Arts & Sciences for whatever ails you, I doubt you will regret it. I know I’m happy with my results.

While this is only the third acupuncturist that I’ve ever had sessions with, my experience with this particular practitioner has been completely different than the first two.  I don’t if there are different “styles” of acupuncture but this one is the one for me!  I feel like Leila-Scott really listens to what is happening with me and is knowledgeable in her approach to my symptoms.  She is both professional and kind and her office feels safe and is very appealing.  With each treatment I have, my neck/back issues dissolve more and more for which I am most grateful!


Susan K

Leila-Scott is extremely gifted in her profession. Her calm competence immediately puts a newcomer at ease as you and she discuss and plan your course of treatment. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
