By the time the treatment was over, the pain was completely gone! This guy has amazing talent! Thank you Pindoctor. Thank you! – Eric M., Minneapolis.
Acupuncture is one of the five branches of Chinese medicine which also includes: bodywork, herbology, nutrition, and exercise. This comprehensive and literate system of medicine is at least 3000 years old. Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin, sterile, disposable needles into precise locations on the body in order to balance the flow of Qi or energy. Qi (pronounced “chee” and also written ‘Chi,’) is the Chinese term given to energy that flows through 12 channels or meridians that run throughout the body. Each meridian is related to an organ system which in turn corresponds with various body functions, foods or flavors we crave and emotions. When there is an imbalance of Qi or, as often is the case with chronic conditions, a lack of Qi, disease results. Herbal supplements, dietary changes and exercises are often added to enhance the benefits of treatment.
When I first came to see Mats I was suffering from chronic sinus infections and asthma, among other more minor complaints. I’m thrilled to say that I haven’t had a sinus infection in over a year and my asthma is under control. Mats’s use of Shiatsu in combination with acupuncture, and his use of healing herbs are all a part of why his treatments are so successful! Mats was able to help me overcome health problems that my western medical doctors had spent years trying to fix, with little result. –Vik, Minneapolis
Who moved my Qi? Mats Sexton, that’s who! I have seen Mats for everything from sinus infections to painful sport injuries and have always been delighted with the results. As a competitive rower, I was hampered by a painful rib injury that kept me from training. After one acupuncture session my pain ceased and has never returned. Thanks for keeping me on the water. –Amy, Minnetonka
I work in a therapeutic massage clinic in Minneapolis. When I refer my clients to Mats, I know they will be well taken care of. His office is clean and comfortable. He is a compassionate listener, a knowledgeable resource, and a skilled practitioner.” –Cory, Minneapolis
Mats Sexton is a full-on Shiatsu and acupuncture guru. When I first met him as “the B-52’s biggest fan ever,” I didn’t envision that a few years later he would often be doing some before and after-show Shiatsu on me. One time I needed “emergency” work because I twisted my back just before a show. Mats worked on me and moments later I was on stage booga-looing with the the B’s. Thanks Mats for your healing hands.”
