Matthew Love DOM, LAc, LMT
Matthew Love is licensed by the Texas Medical Board as an Acupuncturist and is a board certified Diplomate in Oriental Medicine. Additionally, he is licensed by the state of Texas as a professional Massage Therapist and Massage Therapy Instructor.
In 1989, Matthew first attended massage therapy school at the Reese Institue School of Massage Therapy in Oviedo, Florida. After a couple of years of working in a Chiropractic office, he relocated to New York State where he worked in a Physical Therapy setting. In both settings he acquired experience from his association with various other practitioners in multiple disciplines. Later, he was asked to start a separate service for massage therapy along with the physicians and physical therapists he worked with in the New York office.
In 1999, he relocated to Texas with the intention of starting a family, returning to school and later starting a practice. He completed a degree in Premedical Studies in 2003, in Chinese Tuina Massage in 2005, in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2008 and as a Massage Instructor in 2009. He currently is in private practice and co-directs Gentle Interventions with his wife, Hillary. During his years of schooling, he worked with the Seton Spine and Rehabilitation Center of Austin, TX. You may still find him working there as a private contractor from time to time.
Today, as a Holistic Healthcare practitioner, Matthew works with both internal and physical problems. He is most sought after for relief of chronic pain and improved athletic performance but provides natural wellness for many different conditions. Some of the conditions that he has successfully treated are (but not limited to): allergies, osteopenia/ osteoporosis, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, anxiety, and depression. He works with all ages from pediatric to geriatric. Matthew is committed to working with you to support your health and well-being as a part of your personal healthcare team.
Hillary A. Love, LMT, Certified Pregnancy/ Postnatal Massage Therapist,
Certified Spa Practitioner, NESTA Certified Pilates Instructor
Hillary Love has been licensed by the State of Texas as a professional Massage Therapist since 2002. She was first introduced to traditional herbal medicine thru her father and her grandfather, who was a Native American Cherokee herbalist. Later her husband saw that she had a strong hand and intuitive touch, so they decided that she should attend the Academy of Massage Therapy at Austin Community College. For over 13 years, Mrs. Love has been an active practitioner of Massage and Acupressure techniques such as Reflexology, Myo-Fascial Release, Shiatsu Massage and Health KinesiologyTM. That wide-range of experience has allowed her to gain in-depth insight into what makes the human body "click".
Since 2004, Hillary has gone on to pursue studies in Spa Therapies which aptly compliments her talents as a 15-year Aromatherapist. She applies her knowledge of these fields well to help support healthy skin, relieve anxiety and depression, and bolster immunity along with many other applications. Most of her formulas are uniquely created just for each patient and cannot be duplicated or mass-produced.
As a forward-thinking Massage Therapist, Hillary has enjoyed the challenge of being a Pilates Instructor since 2007. She finds Pilates to be personally exhilarating as well as a powerful means towards accomplishing the fitness and weight-management goals of her clients.
You will never regret putting your wellness goals in her strong, intuitive and capable hands.
