We’ve moved!

We’re very happy to announce that we’ve moved our clinic!

Our new address:
4300 N Miller Rd, Suite 213
Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Plaza Codorniz






We are in a lovely office complex called Plaza Codorniz, located just north of Indian School Rd on Miller Rd, on the west side of the street. You’ll see a fountain out front.

The trickiest part of finding us is locating our suite. Just park in the front of the building by the fountains, then head into the main entrance and walk to the middle of the complex. On your right you will see a drinking fountain, an elevator, and then some stairs. Take the stairs (or elevator) up and turn right, then take your next right, and go through the door – our clinic will be on your right.

Finally, Someone Who Will Listen

Your primary care physician is stuck between a rock and hard place. The administrative costs of insurance companies and medicare are so high (and payouts so low) that they have to see twenty patients a day just to break even. As a result, they really can’t afford to spend more than ten minutes talking with a patient; often it’s much less. (Sometimes, you never really talk to the doctor at all!) This leaves many patients feeling frustrated– doesn’t your health deserve more than just a few minutes of discussion? What about alternative options, such as lifestyle changes, traditional medicine, or natural supplements? Again, very few physicians have the time to study these alternatives, let alone explain them to you. That’s where Zen Medicinals comes in. Muki and Ashlee are experts at acupuncture, natural remedies, and holistic healing. They both set aside a full hour during your initial visit just to hear what you have to say, ask you questions, and make sure that all of your health concerns have been addressed. Follow-ups always include a twenty minute discussion, so that the conversation and coaching can continue as needed. If you like, Muki and Ashlee will even take time to discuss their findings with your doctor to give them a holistic perspective on your health, so that they can understand your condition in a new way. This is what Zen Medicinals is all about– bridging the gap between conventional and traditional medicine. The result is a happier, healthier you.

Safe, Natural, And Effective

At Zen Medicinals, we use only safe treatment methods such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutriceuticals to resolve health problems at their source, not just address symptoms of the underlying disorder. Check out what Muki’s patients from Scottsdale, Tempe, and Mesa are saying about how their healing methods have profoundly improved their lives at our Testimonials page.
