AFFORDABLE ACUPUNCTURE, QUALITY CARE
The reduced price at the clinic does not reflect the quality of care you will receive. Mateo believes that each person deserves his absolute best, while also being able to afford treatments. The CSAcu model aims at striking that balance between personal, compassionate, quality care with affordability. His experience working in overworked public clinics as well as in private, individual settings has led him to develop this unique approach.
He earned his Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, and holds the title of Licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Kentucky and Doctor of Oriental Medicine in New Mexico. He has worked in the Bronx, NY at Lincoln Detox Center where he completed his training in Alcohol/Detoxification Specialist. Internationally he has worked and taught in Guatemala (Guatemala Acupuncture and Medical Aid Project), Mexico (Crossroads Border Project), Lebanon (Beirut Acupuncture Project), Palestine (Treatment and Rehabilitation Center for Victims of Torture), and Hungary (NADA Free Mobile Clinic). Most recently Mateo spent one year working in the high-volume Crossroads Community Acupuncture clinic as well as closely with Dr. Masaaki Nakano, a highly esteemed acupuncturist of the Japanese tradition, with whom he co-authored a clinical manual for Chinese medicine professionals.
Mateo is happy and proud to be an acupuncturist at Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital, as part of the Integrative Medicine Team at Kentucky One’s Healthy Lifestyles Center.
