I suffered from nausea and heartburn that got much worse after work stress. I went to my GP, who advised me to get an upper g.i endoscopy, and a test for H. Pylori. He didn't seem convinced that the endoscopy would find anything, but wanted to rule out major issues. In the end, his suggestion was prescription heartburn meds. Well, I couldn't afford the tests, and I didn't like the side effects of the medication. My son suggested I go see Matthew. Being a very skeptical person, it took a lot of convincing. As I walked into the office I was prepared for a lot of nonsense. But, I was willing to give it a try. I was impressed by the thoroughness of the intake, and Matt's bedside manner. After the visit, I was given an herbal formula to take for a week. Again, not expecting much, I took the formula. Well, I'll be damned if my nausea and heartburn didn't clear up in a couple of days! I went back for a couple of more weeks until I was given the all clear that the condition has resolved. Now, 4 years later, it hasn't come back. Whenever I have a problem, I go see Matt, and he patches right up. I never would have believed it 5 years ago!
Bottom line is, Matt is an excellent clinician. I consulted with Matt for severe, sports-induced hip pain. Being a registered nurse, I fear what would have likely happened if I went to urgent care… Well, I know all to well in fact, because I know the differential. I would have had an x-ray, which would have been inconclusive, and a diagnosis of either tendonitis, or bursitis. I would have been put on Ibuprofen for 10 days, with a follow-up MRI, if I wasn't better by then. I was really concerned I would have been laid up on crutches - hard to do when you work in the hospital. I'm really happy that I got the problem accurately diagnosed and taken care of, so that I could get on with my life.
I'm elated to finally feeling better and getting answers to my health issues I've been dealing with for a long time. For over 10 years I worked in a corporate setting where I had sick days as one of my benefits. Not one year, did I not use all of those sick days. Quite often, I would wake up and feel like I was getting a cold or coming down with something. I had headaches on the side and top of my head, cloudy-headed, and was not able to think clearly. I felt like I had temperature on the upper part of my body, especially around my head. My eyes were really sensitive to light on these days and was hard to get in the car to commute to work. I just felt awful. I would call in sick, and often times, my manager would tell me that there's no colds or flu going around right now in the office and to take a good rest. I thought of myself as a pretty healthy person. I worked out, ate well, and had good sleeping schedule too, so it was a mystery to me why I felt like this so often. I didn't know anything about acupuncture or Chinese herbs when my sister recommended to try. I was starting to feel sick again and had to do something about it and found Matthew, my acupuncturist and herbalist. I'm terrified of needles, so needless to say, I was not a quiet patient. The first acupuncture treatment I had, as soon as couple of points were placed in my legs, I started to feel relief from my headaches. During the treatment, I felt different sensations throughout my body. The temperature was leaving my head, tention in my head was going away, and I started to relax. I actually slept through the treatments and when I woke up, I no longer had headaches or temperature. And I felt like someone pushed a "reset" button in my body. I could not believe it. I got some herbs to take for a week and I went to see Matthew again for acupuncture ad herbal treatments. I've been given many price-less lifestyle and dietary advice from Matthew that have changed my life! I highly recommend acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatments for everyone now and I can not imagine what my life would be like without this wonderful medicine in my life. Thank you so much, Matthew.
Starting around Jan 2009, my whole left side of my body was completely cold. I had it probably a year. I don’t know what caused it, but it was very severe. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was a ten. I was treated by a neurologist, but nobody could find a cause. Western meds helped somewhat, but I didn’t want to do that forever. Since doing the acupuncture and herbal treatments I am doing so much better. On a scale of 1 to 10, now I am down to a 3 and getting better. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine worked for me, when nothing else seemed to. I would recommend trying it!
It is a rarity to find practitioners of any sort who are as committed to compassionate and comprehensive healing as Matt is. Because of his treatments and guidance, I can honestly say that he has saved my life. If you're looking for the real deal, look no further.
Matt is a very kind and gentle man. I appreciate his thoughtful suggestions for keeping me healthy.
Thank you so much, Matthew! I've had suffered with severe menstrual pain and abdominal cramping each month for over 20 years. The acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments have helped me tremendously. Now, I don't have to miss work or be in pain sitting at the computer at work. Also my husband is really happy about my mood! Thank you.
Matt did a fantastic job! After three visits to him, my shoulder problem went away. Thanks!
From having constant headaches to minor rib injury, Matt was able to pinpoint the symptoms and provide direct treatment with minimal pain and suffering. He is not only very knowledgeable and professional but understands all aspects of patient's needs to provide the best treatment possible. I am able to ask for his assistance and help with total confidence.
