There are countless articles and research papers on the benefits of acupuncture, but did you know that it can also be used to combat the signs of aging? A natural alternative to surgery or Botox, facial acupuncture is merely an extension of traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicine philosophy.
Unlike an injection of Botox or some other filler, facial acupuncture addresses not just the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles but it also helps to restore your skin’s overall health. Now, you might be worried about acupuncture needles placed in your face, but acupuncture is safe and effective and is recognized by the World Health Organization and there are established guidelines for practice just like any other health profession. Practitioners are also licensed by their state’s department of health so you can be confident that you are in good hands. continue reading »
Matt is a compassionate healer and truly cares for his patients. He’s thorough to figure out the issues affecting you and goes out of his way to provide the best treatment at each session. He communicates well to understand the underlying issues. He helped me with my Covid vaccine side effects and helped my body to recover. I appreciate all that he’s done for me. It’s too bad that I am leaving B’ham and I hope to find another healer
I have been seeing Matt for a couple of months now , since my episode with COVID-19. I have been working on a strange side-effect that had to do with the movement of my right foot. Every visit has been uplifting with progress that I’m sure wouldn’t have been as obvious as it is when I get home after a treatment with Matt. I never knew that acupuncture could yield such dramatic results. Matt is very personable in his approach
Matt combines knowledge, experience, professionalism, humility and genuine caring to greatly assist in the restoration and maintenance of health. His clinic is orderly, comfortable and clean! Matt doesn’t rush anything, asking thoughtful questions and he listens with his full focus. Matt is gentle in technique and spirit, and interacting with him is, in itself, calming. His acupuncture treatments have helped my chronic low back pain a lot!

I feel fortunate to have found Matt and his services. He is very knowledgeable and caring. I see him for acupuncture and herbal support. I have had 2 surgeries in the last year and felt pretty out of whack. Since the treatments started I can sleep 6-7 hours without waking up…which is kind of a miracle for me, especially since one of the reasons for waking up after 3 or so hours was bladder urge. It feels like things are
After years of struggling with significant and debilitating lack of energy and trying what felt like everything under the sun with little success, I am back not only to my old self, but to my younger self as well! This after only a little more than a month receiving acupuncture treatments and recently starting Golden Shield Qigong. Matt applies his deep knowledge of Chinese medicine with skill and most importantly, from the heart – a true healer! I am grateful
