About Us

Franklin Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine was founded by acupuncturist and herbalist Scott Nugent.  Scott initially discovered the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in his early twenties.  Unable to feel truly healthy utilizing conventional medicine, Scott tried acupuncture and was immediately impressed by its effectiveness.  Scott ultimately went on to pursue a master’s degree in Chinese medicine.  His training includes four years of post-graduate study pertaining to acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, advanced adjunct techniques such as gua sha, cupping, moxibustion, and Chinese medical nutrition.   He is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Tennessee and is nationally board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
