What Makes Us Different?

Why pay more for less?  At Barefoot Acupuncture, you will get personal care from seasoned health care practitioners in a private treatment for nearly half of what most acupuncturists charge for a private session.  

Our fees are competitive with community-based acupuncture settings, including the new Modern Acupuncture franchises, in which you will receive a treatment in a large room with other people present.

What else makes us different?

We have a warm, welcoming space, without being too high tech, or extra 'Zen' allowing you to feel right at home, as if visiting a friend.

We also have:

  • More than 20 years experience in natural health care
  • 10 years experience in acupuncture and herbal medicine practice in Arizona
  • Evidence-based acupuncture, herbal medicine and diet therapy
  • Expert wholistic approach
  • Compassionate, knowledgeable staff
  • Affordable fees

To get benefits from acupuncture, you need consistent treatments from a Scottsdale acupuncture specialist (read why here)

We have a basic, clean, quiet, and comfortable neighborhood clinic near Old Town Scottsdale where you can get quick relief from pain, stress, and dis-ease at a reasonable cost.

Many of our clients agree, that at Barefoot Acupuncture, you not only feel better after a treatment, but "it's the best nap in town!"

Herbal medicine is an excellent, non-invasive natural treatment that can be used in conjunction with, or in lieu of your acupuncture treatment.  To learn more about the conditions that Chinese herbal medicine can treat, click here.


Weight Loss Specialists

Don and Tracy also share a passion for health.  They want to inspire their clients to look and feel their best as well.

Many who experience pain can greatly benefit from losing excess pounds that place undo pressure on joints, and can be increasing risk for many other health conditions.  Don has an extensive background in nutrition.  Both are able to coach clients who are ready to lose weight, and improve digestion, moods, and overall health.

"I got acupuncture from Don from October through February or so because I wanted to get pregnant. I got pregnant almost immediately but had a turbulent first trimester. Both of you were so kind, knowledgeable, and supportive throughout this time, which really helped keep me sane. I absolutely looked forward to my appointment each week. Thank you for all of your advice and expertise."

"Don Matesz and Barefoot Acupuncture has been an amazing blessing to my health....After a few months, the pain in my knees completely subsided. It was such a blessing. His caring and compassionate ways are truly astounding!"

"Don Matesz's Barefoot Health Care Center is an amazing place of healing....His pricing is incredible....I can not recommend this place enough.... if you are in pain, taking medications, or are facing surgery, go here first."

Johnson M

"Tracy helped me through a very rough time in my life and now I am focusing on my life path largely in part to her healing sessions. I am also changing the way I eat thanks to her insane knowledge of nutrition. As far as Don goes, I saw him for a foot problem which healed in about 3 weeks of doing acupuncture. The herbs for PMS are amazing!! I do not go a month without them. They are authentic, compassionate, and  very gifted people, I can't recommend them enough!"


Christi K

"I found Barefoot Acupuncture when I was in a stage of my life where I was just getting unstuck from some negative patterns in relationships and finances. I was in a cycle of poverty and failed finances that had been going on for years. Tracy is a compassionate and highly gifted woman and her sessions helped me break those patterns. My business has taken off and I have had a 180 degree turn around in my personal relationships. Even physical ailments have vanished or dissipated. I have been to standard therapies at different times, but Tracy was able to help in ways, and much faster, than the others had. I would highly recommend. Even the lobby has a very soothing and healing energy to it making me feel calm as soon as I enter their space. Don is a very kind man and has a very soothing presence. I would feel very comfortable if I needed to go to him for any of his services as well. Tracy and Don have a wonderful place.

We require direct contact with the Earth to stay grounded and maintain health. I recommend that all of my patients spend as much time as possible properly grounded by walking barefoot on the Earth as often as possible, and using Earthing products so that you can be grounded while they sleep and work.
