Matthew Wagner, C.A., M.S.O.M.

C.A. - Certified Acupuncturist
M.S.O.M. - Master of Science in Oriental Medicine

Matthew Wagner is a Certified Acupuncturist in the State of Wisconsin, and NCCAOM board certified herbalist. Before moving back to Madison, he maintained a private practice, first in Boulder CO, and later in Portland OR. 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 a private, two-year internship at a clinic in Boulder CO, focusing on herbal and classical theory, needle and hand manipulation techniques, and Qi Gong. Matthew has also completed several post-graduate internships. These include 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 Priest, and spent 3 years in strict monastic practice as a Zen Buddhist Monk. This monastic training included study in classical Buddhist thought and psychology; classical insight and meditation practices, including Koan study; and finally, aspects of modern psychology.

The results from the treatments are nothing short of miraculous.

I am very thankful that Matt at Medicine Grove was recommended by a family member. I experienced chronic back pain for over three years. The results from Matt's treatments are nothing short of miraculous. Within a few months the back pain is gone along with various other symptoms I had accepted as part of life and the aging process. Recently I had intense shoulder pain and within two treatments my shoulder feels better than ever. Matt's wisdom and expertise in my opinion are unequaled. I am truly amazed by the improvements to my life thanks to Matt Wagner. B.U. - Madison, WI - Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments

Acupuncture with Matt has completely given me my life back.

Acupuncture with Matt has completely given me my life back. I came to him after trying everything else to help my lower back - which was going numb when I walked and causing me extensive pain. This pain was keeping me from walking far or doing basic household tasks - and I'm 37. Matt learned about my issues and described what he was seeing in a way I had never heard...and it made perfect sense. After just a couple of treatments I could feel a huge improvement. I saw him often for a few months and the pain was gone. Now I just go in for tune ups. During my tune ups I have gotten help for other problems too. Acupuncture with Matt has given me great relief from anxiety. If I go more than a month without a tune up I can really tell...even if my back feels fantastic my mood needs a visit. I highly recommend Matt to everyone I know who has health issues. By all means, give it a try!! Kate A. - Madison, WI - Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments

Whenever I have a problem, I go see Matt, and he patches right up.

I suffered from nausea and heartburn that got much worse after work stress. I went to my GP, who advised me to get an upper g.i endoscopy, and a test for H. Pylori. He didn't seem convinced that the endoscopy would find anything, but wanted to rule out major issues. In the end, his suggestion was prescription heartburn meds. Well, I couldn't afford the tests, and I didn't like the side effects of the medication. My son suggested I go see Matthew. Being a very skeptical person, it took a lot of convincing. As I walked into the office I was prepared for a lot of nonsense. But, I was willing to give it a try. I was impressed by the thoroughness of the intake, and Matt's bedside manner. After the visit, I was given an herbal formula to take for a week. Again, not expecting much, I took the formula. Well, I'll be damned if my nausea and heartburn didn't clear up in a couple of days! I went back for a couple of more weeks until I was given the all clear that the condition has resolved. Now, 4 years later, it hasn't come back. Whenever I have a problem, I go see Matt, and he patches right up. I never would have believed it 5 years ago! P.W. - Manitowoc, WI - Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments

I'm really happy that I got the problem accurately diagnosed and taken care of, so that I could get on with my life.

Bottom line is, Matt is an excellent clinician. I consulted with Matt for severe, sports-induced hip pain. Being a registered nurse, I fear what would have likely happened if I went to urgent care… Well, I know all too well in fact, because I know the differential. I would have had an x-ray, which would have been inconclusive, and a diagnosis of either tendonitis, or bursitis. I would have been put on Ibuprofen for 10 days, with a follow-up MRI, if I wasn't better by then. I was really concerned I would have been laid up on crutches - hard to do when you work in the hospital. I'm really happy that I got the problem accurately diagnosed and taken care of, so that I could get on with my life. B.G. - Fitchburg, WI - Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine worked for me, when nothing else seemed to. I would recommend trying it!

Starting around Jan 2009, my whole left side of my body was completely cold. I had it probably a year. I don’t know what caused it, but it was very severe. On a scale of 1 to 10, it was a ten. I was treated by a neurologist, but nobody could find a cause. Western meds helped somewhat, but I didn’t want to do that forever. Since doing the acupuncture and herbal treatments I am doing so much better. On a scale of 1 to 10, now I am down to a 3 and getting better. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine worked for me, when nothing else seemed to. I would recommend trying it! Becky - Broomfield, CO - Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Treatments
