Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
After spending ten years educating our youth as a high-school math teacher, Matt found a growing interest in natural medicine, specifically Traditional Chinese Medicine. He enrolled in the American Academy of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Roseville, Minnesota, finishing the four-year program in three years. After graduating in 2014 with a Master in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, he accepted a scholarship to study at the Liaoning University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shenyang, China, where he studied under Dr. Gao, a renowned Traditional Chinese Medicine endocrinologist, for nearly three years.
Matt has a wide range of clinical interests and experiences, including male and female fertility, men’s health, women’s health, diabetes, thyroid disorders, MS, chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain, digestive issues, mental and emotional issues, insomnia and sleep disorders, respiratory disorders, and many more. He is experienced in a myriad of modalities, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tuina (Chinese massage), and cupping. He holds a Diplomate in Acupuncture from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, with national board certification in Acupuncture, Biomedicine, and Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory. He is licensed to practice acupuncture in the State of Minnesota by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.
Matt enjoys the each patient's challenges and looks forward to helping them regain their health. In his free time, he enjoys golfing, hiking, camping, gardening, reading, and spending time with his lovely wife and their rescue dog.
