Dr. Holly Matteo
My name is Dr. Holly Matteo. I am a Wife to my high school sweetheart a Mother to three Beautiful Children and a Chiropractor. My Faith runs strong and I trust in God. Before I became a Chiropractor, my mom was a big part of who I am. She is the one who taught me how to eat good natural food, how not to eat processed foods and to drink water constantly. Throughout my studies of the Human Body, everything clicked in my brain about what she taught me. But honestly how did she know? My mom doesn’t have a degree. My brother was a “hyperactive child”, which today that would be “labeled” ADHD, or ADD. My mom did everything not have my brother put on medication, which included getting every processed Food out of the house. I grew up, without processed foods! I never knew anything but “All Natural”. She read a book called the Feingold Diet and it changed her way of thinking of food and what we put into our bodies. To this day, my brother who is in his 40′s and is a doctor of pharmacy, can not have a Mountain Dew without getting hyperactive. This is where my Passion Started, my Mom! Since that Time I have learned years worth of information, I have read so many books it would make your head go crazy. But No textbook out there can take the place of Motherhood. My world Changed 8 years ago with the birth of my first son, who was born premature. I vowed to exercise and take good care of my body years before I had children, I vowed to eat Organic foods and take tons of Vitamins during my pregnancy, I vowed to have a Natural Birth, and I did all these things to the T. But even after all that was said and done, I had just begun the journey of Living Organic. I had to discover how to eat for breastfeeding, and how to make Organic baby food with our Vitamix, I had to figure out what baby food to feed him first, how long to Nurse. The List just went on and on. I am here to tell you it’s a Journey, Nothing happens over night, we learn a little bit and then apply it, and repeat, and repeat. Our Journey as Humans keep going, but I can tell you with each new thing I learn and I will pass it along, I feel better and better. The Fog is gone, I have more Energy, and My life and Families Life is much Happier and Healthier.
With that said here is a short synopsis of my past to present:I grew up in a widespread farming community in Southern New Jersey in an area where two staple crops, blueberries and cranberries continue to supply most of the East Coast. While attending Rutgers University I lived at home and worked part time as an EMT and also volunteered with my local emergency squad, the Shamong EMS, of which I was a founding member. Over the course of six years, I was a highly dedicated member of the Shamong EMS logging over 20,000 hours of volunteer time. This while carrying a full time schedule in Rutgers Pre-Med program, working 10-15 hours a week as a paid EMT and spending the remaining time with my high school sweetheart and future husband Dr. Sean Matteo
After graduating from Rutgers, I pursued my dream of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic at Logan University just outside of St. Louis Missouri. After completing my studies at Logan and passing all of my National Board Exams, I moved with my husband to Hilton Head Island, SC where we established Our practice, Matteo Family Chiropractic, which has happily served Hilton Head Island and Bluffton South Carolina area for 10 years. We have won many awards including Best Chiropractor of Hilton Head / Bluffton area and Best Customer Service. Our Service is to our Church: Young Women’s Group, Hilton Head Heroes, and The Curry Foundation.
