Matthew wadsworth, LAc

   Matthew is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Texas, and graduate with a master's degree in Oriental Medicine from Texas Health and Science University. 

   Matthew began studying acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine after initially having initially worked in the medical field and having begun college as a pre-med student. While Matthew enjoyed helping people in the medical field, he became concerned about of the side effects of some of the pharmaceutical medications. Matthew wanted to find an alternative way to successfully treat patients without side effects and found acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine as an effective means of doing so. 


   Matthew has extensive experience in successfully treating patients with a wide range of conditions, such as chronic pain, emotional challenges, and neurological issues. More recently Matthew has been helping patients to recover from post Covid-19 symptoms such as loss of taste and smell as well as other aftereffects of Covid-19.


   In his free time Matthew likes to spend time with family, exercise, and read. 

Tina Howard, LAc

Joining our Team beginning 6/1/2022

Tina has a Passion for Helping People Heal!

I have a love of and passion for helping others become their healthiest, best selves. I see and honor each patient as a whole and healthy human being and work with each of them to find the right treatment plan for their complete healing.

I have been accompanying patients on their own unique healing journeys since 2008 when I earned a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. I was fortunate to train with some of the best instructors and practitioners in the country, receiving more than 1,000 hours of clinical training in the school acupuncture clinic, herbal pharmacy and at the UCSD Free Clinic for seniors.
