Jonathan Mates was far more than an acupuncture specialist, with comprehensive knowledge of body mechanics, exercise and rehabilitation techniques, he was able to address my physical conditions and provide a plan to continue with my rehabilitation. Jonathan’s professional attitude, credentials and extensive knowledge of natural healing is a valuable asset to any clinic.
