In the era of pharmaceuticals, where western medicine continues to dominate the medical industry, the traditional science of acupuncture was losing its ground. It needed someone to explore it, study it, and resurrect it so the modality could meet the therapeutic needs of today’s modern world. People were hesitant about acupuncture as they had a very blurred impression of how it works. At times they also misunderstood acupuncture, and this kept them from experiencing the jaw-dropping results it can generate.
Matt Hale, CEO, and Co-founder of Modern Acupuncture®, therefore, made it his mission to educate people and help them make lives better through Modern Acupuncture.
The man who arranged 50 Cent’s equity investment in Vitamin Water and Madonna’s deal with Vita Coco, Seth Rodsky and his firm Strand Equity, have bought a stake in Modern Acupuncture and brought actress Cameron Diaz into the deal, too.
“We reached out to Modern Acupuncture in late 2018 after identifying acupuncture as a healthcare and wellness service which we thought to be a large white space,” Rodsky said in an interview. “I’m a user of acupuncture and a lot of my friends are as well, and we started scratching our head” about the “fact that there wasn’t a distinctive brand and a scale player. When we stumbled across Modern Acupuncture we started talking.”
Cameron Diaz is taking her passion for health to new heights with her latest investment. The health advocate and Hollywood actress is the latest investor in Arizona-based acupuncture company Modern Acupuncture. Modern Acupuncture has been around for over three years and according to its CEO, Matt Hale, the group aims to provide affordable acupuncture across the United States.

Ollie recently partnered with Modern Acupuncture in an effort to spread awareness and the accessibility of holistic healthcare….“It was something dear to my heart,” Ollie said. “I believe in holistic healing and I believe in making people’s lives better. It’s education we provide and an opportunity to change the just want to bring the best out of everybody.”
I first tried acupuncture two years ago as a total skeptic. A well-placed needle as a cure-all for stress, cramps, even allergies? Sure, whatever you say. I left with my qualms mostly dashed, feeling lighter and chiller and, well, better. By the second time I tried it—this time after pulling a muscle in my shoulder—I was a bona fide convert.
Dr. Stephen Gubernick operates a busy location of The Joint in Scottsdale, Arizona, but found himself referring his chiropractic patients elsewhere for acupuncture, something his franchise doesn’t offer. He even had a clever name for the new acupuncture clinic he wanted to open….he took his idea to Matt Hale and Chad Everts, two former executives of The Joint, which the two had put on a fast growth track when they were working for John Leonesio, a legend in the Arizona valley and beyond, as the founder of the epically successful Massage Envy who subsequently put his touch on more than a half-dozen franchises to get them growing on an entirely new level.
Recently I wrote about what I consider to be one of the big new trends in the franchise industry, which is the emerging healthcare franchises. I continue to investigate new healthcare franchise models to feature. I was introduced to Matt Hale and Chad Everts from Modern Acupuncture, an emerging franchise that is on track to be one of the fastest growing franchises in the nation. Hale and Everts’s mission, along with the company’s other founders, is to “make your life better.” They aim to do that through making acupuncture mainstream and improving patients’ lives, through providing consistent, well-paying jobs for licensed acupuncturists and through providing an amazing business opportunity to franchisees.
