About Dr. Shila Mathew, MD
From God's Own Country to the Land Where "In God We Trust"

Gods Own Country - the land of Dr. ShilaDr. Mathew got her medical degree from Kerala University, India. She was born and brought up in an area of the world that is known as "God's own country" with its abundance of natural beauty and resources. In fact, Columbus was on the way to discover an alternate route to Kerala to tap its spices when he accidentally discovered America!

In 1979, Shila came to Cleveland, fresh out of medical school, after a fairy tale wedding. She joined Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit for residency training in psychiatry. During her training at Henry Ford Hospital, Shila got interested in hypnotherapy, substance abuse management, and sleep disorders. After completing her residency, Dr. Mathew moved back to North East Ohio. She was granted the licenses to practice medicine in Ohio and Indiana. She also passed the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Examination and was admitted to the Board.

Dr. Mathew has undergone training on Medical Acupuncture at McMaster University Medical School. She is a member of American Academy of Medical Acupuncture.

Dr. Shila has also undergone training for GTT acupuncture. GTT Acupuncture, combining a variety of oriental medicine practices with western medicine, is an effective therapy to treat chronic myofascial pain and dysfunction. This technique, unlike conventional acupuncture, can provide enhanced, more permanent, and dramatic clinical response in treating numerous musculo-skeletal conditions.
