Acupuncture relies on carefully placed needles to relieve pain and discomfort, much the way a house of cards relies on a carefully placed foundation to support the stress of adding a pool table to the second floor.

Licensed acupuncturist Matthew Kalman Kirsch meticulously spirits away discomfort with a combination of the ancient practice of acupuncture therapy and manual bodywork. The 75-minute treatment introduces patients to the process and practitioner with a 10-minute consultation, examination, and lively rendition of “Getting to Know You.” The punctilious pinsman then spends 30 minutes targeting ailing body systems with precisely placed needles and a soothing touch. The needles aim to redirect the flow of energy for 10 minutes before 15 minutes of thorough acupressure applied to the neck, back, or feet uproots any entrenched deposits of stress. Sessions conclude with another 10-minute consultation to address any concerns or questions about future treatments. The therapy seeks to restore the body’s fluid motion and relieve the chronic pains caused by arthritis, digestive disorders, and arm-wrestling matches with octopodes.
Kirsch Method's Ki Community Acupuncture Clinic
Kirsch Method likely wasn’t voted Best Acupuncture Service of 2012 in Austin Fit Magazine solely because it can help treat digestive disorders, headaches, and spinal maladies. That’s what every acupuncture clinic should be able to do. What makes Kirsch Method different is that its therapist, Matthew Kirsch, is not interested in inserting needles and then leaving the patient alone for 90 minutes. He believes in fully treating a patient, which is why he stays in the room and performs craniosacral therapy while the needles work on realigning energies. This alleviates tension in the fascia surrounding spine.
Kirsch started performing the complementary treatments during the 1,000-hour clinic portion of his acupuncture training, part of the more than 3,000 hours he's spent earning his master’s degree in Oriental Medicine. He also learned to administer acupressure, a massage style that focuses on the same energy meridians as acupuncture but eschews needles, much like a porcupine who wants to soften his tough-guy image.
