“With his extensive knowledge of Chinese medicine, Matt was able to help me a great deal with boosting my immunity to reduce travel-induced colds and flu, allowing me to fight off these minor illnesses. As someone who travels a lot, this was immensely helpful. Matt also helped me during a difficult period when I lost several family members. I had not previously known how acupuncture can be beneficial for emotional stress; his treatments improved my emotional state considerably. Matt has helped me immeasurably – not just with acupuncture but with knowledge in maintaining and improving overall health. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking acupuncture and other treatment.”

“I can not imagine an acupuncturist providing more diligent, thoughtful, empathetic care. I have had migraines for ten years. Since I began treatment my headaches have been reduced dramatically. The daily neck pain I had been experiencing over the past two years has improved vastly, along with the angst that I was feeling over a change in my employment status. Thanks to Matt’s excellent care, wisdom, and empathy, I was even able to put that behind me, improving both my mental and physical health. A major part of my improved health has been due to the manner in which Matt delivers healthcare. Matt has giving me extra time when needed to ensure thorough individualized care.”

“I have been a patient of Matt’s for over three years, and while I originally came to him for a tennis injury I have learned a great deal from him about the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine not only for treating injuries and conditions but for improving overall wellbeing. At my first visit, Matt listened patiently and discussed with me the ways he thought best to treat me. Within a few visits, as he expected, the pain gradually dissipated. He also helped me greatly with subsequent issues caused by athletic activity, including using cupping and other methods that were very effective."

Acupuncture has provided me with a sense of balance and self-control in dealing with difficult situations.
