I developed a severe sciatic pain about 4 months ago which limited my mobility severely. After going through radiating pain for over two months , one of my friends highly recommended Dr. Edward Scarlett and I immediately made an appointment to see him. After my first visit, the pain subsided and after each visit I had significant improvement thanks to Dr. Scarlett’s caring personality along with his tremendous experience in finding and treating the underlying problem. I would like to thank Dr. Scarlett for bringing back my mobility and relieving all the pain I went through. I am also thankful to Jennifer for her kindness, patience and professionalism in arranging my appointments. -S.E

I recently moved to North Carolina to be with family so, unfortunately, I no longer have the pleasure of seeing Dr. Edward! He has been my savior for the past many, many years! I suffer from terrible migraines and all I had to do was call and he’d squeeze me in to his busy schedule. After my treatment, I was able to leave his office with almost 100% relief. He also helped me with nerve pain after I had a very serious surgery. I had a horrendous migraine this past weekend and all I could think of was – Dr. Edward would fix me right up! It’s not always easy finding a doctor that you trust and know that they’ll take care of your medical needs. I will truly miss not having him as my go-to!! Next time I come down to Florida for a visit, I will definitely schedule... Read more »

“I started treatment with Dr. Scarlett just after Thanksgiving by the suggestion of my lovely wife Jennifer. Her health had improved dramatically in such a short time as a patient of Dr. Edward. I was experiencing many digestive issues related to IBS, pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. I had different ailments all my life with no idea what caused it. It was pretty bad and over time has gotten worse. After a few treatments I am more relaxed, sleeping habits have improved, appetite has improved quite a bit, pain has lessened, muscles and body not as tight ..so now I can continue life in optimum balance.” David F.

“At a time when people are so conscious of maintaining their physical health by controlling their diets, exercising, and so forth, it makes sense to try to cultivate the corresponding mental attitudes too.”
– HH the Dalai Lama, 1963
It can be easy to forget how much our mental state can affect our physical well-being. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, that connection is evident in the treatment strategies, but it is also true that when we are feeling bad, we don’t always think to look at our minds. It works both ways. continue reading

We’re confident that you’ve heard of acupuncture, but do you know where it comes from?
The study and practice of acupuncture and acupressure have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years and is an ancient healing technique. Acupressure and acupuncture apply the same principles, but acupressure uses pressure points instead of needles to achieve the desired results. continue reading
Statistics show that almost eight out of 10 people experience low back pain at some point during their life. Seeking medical treatment for back pain is very common. Typically back pain is fleeting and can be easily resolved with rest, heat and an occasional anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen. However, once the damage is done, the recurrence of back pain can be as high as 50 percent. Part of this is because as we age, things like muscles and tendons become less flexible and pliable. This can also be attributed to the fact that many people suffer from low-grade dehydration because they don’t drink enough water and they don’t ingest enough healthy fats that keep the muscles and tendons loose. It is also very well known that in the United States, people are too sedentary, and this leads to excess weight gain that can create added pressure on the body, especially the low back. continue reading
