Bend Oregon Acupuncture
Matthew Truhan, LAc
Matthew has traveled long and far to find his home in Bend. Born and raised in Key West, FL, his interest in the sciences led him to complete his Bachelors of Science in Microbiology at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. From Florida, Matthew's love of the water and surfing took him to San Diego, CA where he met his wife and found his calling in the healing arts as an Acupuncturist.
His passion for helping others inspired him to become a massage therapist and motivated him through the Masters of Science program in Traditional Oriental Medicine (TCM) at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. The crowded city life of San Diego helped instill a greater appreciation and love for the outdoor life. Being filled with water and surrounded by forests made Bend the perfect choice for the next chapter of their life together.
Matthew's interest in Chinese Medicine draws from the holistic view of the medicine, along with the naturalistic ideas of returning the body's internal environment to harmony and balance. As an Acupuncturist, he is rooted in his compassion and his wish to bring comfort and good health to his patients, striving to listen to their needs, and focusing his warm hands and caring heart to provide a relaxing and healing space. He helps harmonize and balance his patients with an open thought process employing different diagnosing strategies (Zang-Fu Theory, Channel Theory, 5 Element) and therapeutic techniques, including massage, acupuncture, herbs, as well as other complementary techniques.
When not in the clinic, Matthew loves the outdoors. He has always loved the water: snorkeling, fishing, and in particular surfing, and is excited to take on kayaking, canoeing, and rafting. He is thrilled to be out surrounded by trees and finding the lakes, streams and waterfalls of Oregon. Having known summer and spring, Matthew is eager to get involved with winter sports like snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding. All of these activities are especially enjoyed by Matthew with his wonderful wife Jenni.
