The Mental and Physical Connection, w/ Dr. Matthew Tolstoy

April 12, 2023

In my 60th episode I have a great conversation with Dr. Matthew Tolstoy. What background doesn’t Dr. Tolstoy have? Matt is a licensed acupuncturist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), completing the three year training program in trauma therapy developed by Peter Levine. He is certified by the International Association of Counselors and Therapists as well as by the National Academy of Sports Medicine. In addition to his private practice, Matt has been on staff at New York City Ballet and an educator for Equinox Health Clubs. What Matt will tell you is that it is his experience as a personal trainer that led him to his current work, helping people using a multidirectional approach that includes physical and psychological modalities. In this convo we discuss those modalities and connections. This was a really fun convo and one with many takeaways. You can learn more about Dr. Tolstoy and his work at:
