Practice Tips

By Matthew Bauer, LAc

Matthew Bauer began studying Taoist history, philosophy, and spirituality under Taoist Master Hua-Ching Ni in 1978 and became a Licensed Acupuncturist in 1986. In addition to managing a successful practice, Matthew worked with various acupuncture organizations, as a consultant to the insurance industry, and as an expert witness for the California Acupuncture Board and in private cases. His book "The Healing Power of Acupressure and Acupuncture" explores the roots of acupuncture and Chinese medicine theory including how the point/meridian system came to be organized. His latest book "Making Acupuncture Pay" is the cornerstone of Matthew's efforts to help acupuncturists build successful practices.
