Direct first-hand experience played a pivotal role in Matthew’s decision to pursue a career as an acupuncturist. A snow skiing accident in 1995 resulted in a 75% tear of his left knee's ACL. 6 months later, he sustained a 100% tear to the same left knee playing basketball. After Matthew's ACL reconstruction surgery, his left leg was paralyzed and he was left in excruciating pain. 3 years of intensive therapies with limited results had him searching for other alternatives. Matthew started receiving acupuncture treatments from his friend's grandmother and was pain free with full range of motion of his left knee only 1 month later.
But in addition to the obvious physical benefits, becoming an acupuncturist provided an emotional lift too. “There is no greater gift a human being can give another human being than the gifts of health and happiness,” Matthew says.
He enjoys working specifically at the San Clemente clinic location because of its awesome environment and the ability to create such a relaxing experience “that maximizes the benefits of acupuncture for the patient during treatment.”
