Neil and Alana...a practice in partnership

We have been practicing acupuncture and prescribing Chinese medicinal herbs on the central coast since 1994.  Alana's practice is primarily in Santa Cruz and Neil maintains offices in Santa Cruz and with Dr. Michael Contro, M.D. in Los Gatos.   We both have an emphasis on treating infertility, and we also treat a wide variety of health concerns including general gynecology, allergies, anxiety, digestive disorders (including IBS and GERD) and stress management.  Neil has a further interest in treating pain (musculoskeletal pain and headaches) and Alana has a further interest in pediatrics.


At Vitality Wellness Center we understand the need to reduce transmission of the COVID-19 virus.  We are keeping our Santa Cruz Center open to support you during this time.
To reduce the risk of transmission, we are following the Santa Cruz County Social Distancing Guidelines, which can be found here:

In particular we ask that you adhere to the following:
  • If you are experiencing fever, sore throat, cough or other respiratory symptoms please remain at home and do not come to the Center.
  • If you are 60 years or older, have diabetes, heart or lung disease, compromised immunity, or are taking immunosuppressive medication, do not come in.  You are at a higher risk of serious complications from the disease if you contract it and should self-isolate to the maximum degree possible.
  • Feel free to call us for herbal protocols you can do from home.
Our Center is open for treatments for musculo-skeletal pain, fertility issues, emotional care, and other non-infectious ailments.  We are limiting our treatment to these issues to protect all our patients.

If you do come to the Center for an appointment we request that you please keep the following in mind:
  • Hand washing with soap and water for 20 seconds is very effective at limiting the spread of the virus, and we encourage everyone to do so on a regular basis. If soap and water are not available waterless hand sanitizer is a reasonable alternative.  Please wash your hands as soon as you arrive and before you leave the Center.
  • We continue to sanitize all surface areas and door knobs, in addition to the bathroom, waiting room, and water cooler after each patient with disinfectants registered with the EPA as effective against COVID-19.

We have reduced our hours.  Our online booking software does not reflect this change in hours of operation, please call or text us to schedule an appointment.

Thank you for taking care and we hope to see you again soon.  Have a peaceful and creative time as you are "sheltering in place".

To your health,
The Vitality Wellness Center staff
