Tena Scarber. B.S., M.S.
Diplomate & Board Certified in Acupuncture & Herbology

As a child Tena used to watch Jack Lalane (often called the “Godfather of Fitness”) with her mother as they exercised daily to stay fit. His passion for physical fitness and good nutrition along with her mother’s healthy lifestyle made such an impact on Tena that she decided she wanted to do something to help people stay healthy just like Jack LaLane.


Tena began her healthcare career as a Respiratory Therapist which exposed her to a wide variety of medical conditions that would prepare her for the future. She worked in large medical centers training others in the emergency room, adult, pediatric and neonatal critical care units. While at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, Tena was a vital member of the cardiac arrest team, organ transplant team, and emergency response staff. Throughout her 10 years of working with critically ill patients Tena was often reminded of her original motivation “Jack Lalane” and her desire to assist people with healthy living and overall quality of life. Although she loved working in the hospital setting and thrived in that environment, she decided to go back to school for a degree in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition, and in 1987 Tena opened her first preventive medicine practice offering nutrition, exercise counseling and massage therapy.


For the next ten years, Tena’s preventative medicine practice thrived as she worked with thousands of patients to address their health issues. She continued to study physical therapy techniques, advanced massage modalities, and naturopathic medicine to better assist patients and in 1998 Tena enrolled in Acupuncture school to become a Diplomate & Board Certified Acupuncturist and Herbologist. She received her degree in 2003 from the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) based in Houston, Texas. ACAOM is likened to a “Harvard School” for acupuncturist and is known in the United States for their high standard of curriculum, exemplary instructors, and “the national board” pass rate by graduates. Through all her studies and experiences in both western and eastern medicine Tena has become one of the most well recognized acupuncturists in the area.


In her spare time, Tena enjoys traveling, golf, outdoor sports/activities, spending time with family, friends and her whippets.

Tiffany Nelson LMT, MT#103555

Tiffany has 22 years of experience working with people with all types of injuries and pain. She graduated from The Utah College of Massage therapy in 1997; Texas State licensed in 2007. Her specialties are therapeutic /medical massage, a mixture of Swedish massage, trigger point and deep tissue.


My grandmother introduced me to massage as a child to help me relax and feel better. I was inspired to help others who were in pain. The relatives and friends whom I treated raved about my apparent gift and knack for helping get rid of their neck pain and headaches. It was so rewarding that I decided to pursue professional training and a career in the healing arts to learn proper techniques. I came into this profession with the desire to make a change in the client’s life. I attended The Utah College of Massage Therapy in 1997 and eventually settled in Dallas.


Massage is my passion because I love helping others feel their best. I have gained knowledge and experience through resolution of my own physical issues (neck/back pain and headaches) to better understand, treat and empathize with my clients. I find it very rewarding to positively affect the health and well-being of others.

Licensed Professional Counselor-Intern

National Certified Counselor
EMDR Trained


Life sometimes presents overwhelming obstacles, which can lead to anxiety, depression, grief, isolation, self-doubt, confusion and strained relationships. It takes great courage to seek counseling and I offer a compassionate and supportive space for you to create healing and growth.


One of my passions is helping those challenged by the process of building a family. This could be due to infertility, miscarriage or pregnancy loss, post-partum or post-adoption depression, stress regarding adoption, general anxiety, and the adjustment to parenting or living childfree after these experiences. I have gained insight and an intimate perspective into the issues you may be facing and the various paths this process can take. Feelings of isolation, hopelessness, shame, trauma, anguish, anger and relationship problems may surface. You may feel as though your body has betrayed you which undermines feelings of safety and security. Relating to your partner, family or friends becomes harder.


This pain is often unseen but consuming. The deep sense of someone else truly understanding what this experience is like can be very healing. I can help you care for yourself at this very vulnerable time. During this rollercoaster of emotions, I hope to help you find validation, peace, strength and the ability to better manage daily life.


I have an MA in Clinical Psychology and an MS in Psychological Counseling. I have worked in various settings including a non-profit adoption agency, counseling adoptive and birth parents. I am fully LGBTQIA supportive.


I invite you to take that next step today to learn how I can help you sort through difficult emotions and decisions and provide respite during this trying time. I would be honored to accompany you on your journey. You are not alone…
