A family friend Mrs. Daube had been taking her son to Matt for reoccurring neck problems. His neck problems were quickly resolved do to the great effects of acupuncture. After seeing Matt once I experienced visible improvements in my walking, strength, and mobility. After my positive experience I visited Matt twice a week for therapy and strength training. After a few months of acupuncture I was able to continue my wrestling career and was able to obtain a college wrestling scholarship offer. Thanks to Matt my college-wrestling career has been successful and will continue to be. In all honesty, without the help of Matt and his acupuncture I would not be where I am today. Furthermore, I consider Matt a personal friend and continue to seek treatments from his acupuncture center.
Now I am able to withstand much hotter temperatures. I also had balance issues and double vision. The acupuncture has improved both the balance and double vision. Prior to acupuncture I had too much weakness and fatigue to hike our local trails, now I can easily hike 3 miles. I like Matt’s honest and straightforward personality. It makes going into treatments an enjoyable pleasure. Matt is very knowledgeable and helpful in a lot of areas. The office staff is very considerate and nice. It is a very convenient easy to find location. North County Integrative Acupuncture Center handled everything flawlessly with insurance such that it was not work on my part. I strongly recommend Matt Alavi and ActiveMed Integrative Health Center to everyone.
When I was diagnosed with B6 toxicity and peripheral neuropathy this past March, my primary care physician wanted to prescribe me pain pills as a solution and I definitely did not want to go that route. I was in so much pain and had extreme fatigue from the toxicity, it was interfering with my daily life. Thankfully I read that acupuncture can help alleviate the pain and I found Dr. Alavi.
I visited him at his Rancho Bernardo location by Pomerado Hospital. After just a few visits, the pain started to lessen and he is helping me heal my nerves and get my life back.
Dr. Alavi has an extensive knowledge of integrative medicine, acupuncture and how the body works as a whole. He is patient, listens and really cares about your whole health.
I would highly recommend Dr. Alavi to anyone experiencing pain issues!
