Innate Wellness strives to improve our patient experience. We have had many requests for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We are excited to announce that acupuncturist, Matthew Richardson will be joining our team this February 2014. Please email or call to inquire about our new acupuncture services.
Matthew is a registered Acupuncturist with the Collage of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). He has experience treating many different syndromes including sports injuries, chronic illness, severe pain and infertility.
Originally going through school for Computer Engineering, Matthew found himself uninspired with the lack of human connection within the industries of business and technology. With a deep desire to create a compassionate and caring lifestyle he began a journey into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). This path took him through years of intensive study in TCM and travel through Asia. He also developed a deep connection with caring for children, volunteering with children worldwide and at home. In Toronto he has been a Behavioural Therapist for children with Autism for many years and continues to work with them. In the future he hopes to bring TCM into the treatment process for children living with Autism and similar disorders to improve their quality of life.
He provides TCM care at Dorothy Ley Hospice, is an instructor at the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as an instructor of Russian System and Yang Style Tai Chi C’huan, both of which have a folk medicine aspect and use deep breathing techniques to resolve tension and heal the body. Through these unique methods he has developed his own personal techniques for changing the body. He believes that correct and continuous movement, internal and external, is the key to understanding and promoting health. It is through movement that you will come to know your body and spirit, so that you can better understand yourself and your health.
