About The Practitioner: Matthew Amato



Matthew Amato holds a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM) from the New England School of Acupuncture and is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine. He is trained and certified in Traditional Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture as well as being a Chinese herbalist. In addition to his training at NESA, Matthew has studied Tong Ren Therapy under Master Tom Tam of the Oriental Culture Institute, treating cancer, multiple sclerosis and hospice patients. Through his commitment to helping a broad range of patients, much of his training was performed in Community Health Centers and Detox Centers.

Matthew's treatment philosophy is that the body is the healer and the acupuncturist is merely a conduit. Within that philosophy is an integral approach combining acupuncture and Chinese herbs with Tuina (Chinese massage), energy healing, and bodywork modalities such as Sotai, all of which Matthew has trained in over the years. This approach, with exercise, such as yoga, and dietary changes, embodies a lifestyle therapy that can work to teach the body new ways to heal itself.
