Matthew Wagner is a Certified Acupuncturist in the State of Wisconsin, and NCCAOM board certified herbalist. He received his degree from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder CO. This Master of Science in Oriental Medicine (M.S.O.M) program consists of a total of 3,045 academic hours, as well as 1,140 hours of clinical practice. Additionally, he completed several post-graduate internships, including two, four month long internships in Taipei, Taiwan, with some of the foremost doctors in the field of pain management and herbalism, as well as frequent observations at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Tzu-Chi Buddhist hospital.
Matt found acupuncture and Oriental medicine while dealing with his own healing crisis; for a decade he suffered from debilitating insomnia, fatigue, and digestive complaints that were untreatable by conventional medicine. It was only after having had consistent acupuncture and herbal treatment that his life dramatically improved. Inspired by this healing process, Matthew made the choice to devote himself to acupuncture and Oriental medicine, so that he may help others going through similar situations.
Before studying Oriental medicine, Matthew was an ordained Zen Buddhist Monk, and spent 3 years in strict monastic practice. This training included study in classical Buddhist thought and psychology, classical insight and meditation practices, and aspects of modern psychology.
This background ensures that the treatment and the advice to the patient are as well rounded as possible, using all means available to overcome the barriers to a patient’s healing process, whether they are physical, energetic, or spiritual. Matt firmly believes that healing is a co-creative process and works with patients through regular treatments, dietary and lifestyle advice, and daily practices, to give patients the keys to their own best health.
