"Matt has been working with me for over two years. He has helped me prepare and recover from major surgery and he has helped me with all my ailments as I age. Matt has treated me with compassion and respect. He listens to my concerns and addresses each and every one. He is gentle with the acupuncture needles and attentive to my sensitivities. Matt has made me feel better than I have in decades and I trust him wholeheartedly with my health. I recommend him to all my friends."
“Acupuncturist Matthew Berg has a magic touch! Before I met Matthew I hated acupuncture and would avoid it as the needles felt so uncomfortable. My first session with Matthew years ago convinced me that acupuncture is worth it. His gentle manner, his expert and intuitive placement of needles, as well as other support, has always made me comfortable, relaxed, and eager to have him do more! After each session with Matthew I feel calmer, more balanced, and physically and emotionally healthier. He’s a master!"

"Matthew is both a skilled and intuitive practitioner who is extremely gifted at tailoring a treatment plan to my specific needs. Having been a client for several years now, and receiving acupuncture regularly, I have noticed significant improvement in long-standing, chronic issues, which allows me to live with less pain and more freedom. In addition, anything that arises on an acute level (body, mind, or spirit) I have found is aided significantly by receiving acupuncture. After an acupuncture session, I always notice a shift in my feelings of well-being and balance which affords me the opportunity to meet life’s challenges with peace and equanimity."
