Dr. Matthew Horkey


With 1500 dollars in his pocket and 200,000 dollars of student debt, Dr Horkey set out on a journey that would be enthralling, heartbreaking and ultimately led him to immense success, wealth, and happiness. In just five years, he would go from living with only 50 dollars, to getting kicked out of a country, losing everything twice, and generating millions of dollars.

In June 2009, Matthew Horkey walked across the graduation stage obtaining his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in Atlanta, Georgia. The very next day, with tears in his eyes, he kissed his family goodbye as he hopped on a plane with a one-way ticket, one bag, and a heart full of dreams.

His first stop took him to India, where he was leading a group of young chiropractors from four different countries to serve the needy. After successfully leading that project over three grueling weeks, he went on a two-month solo adventure through India. Those few months would lead him to becoming a “Bollywood” actor, a houseboat bum in the disputed border of India/Pakistan, and meditating with monks in “Little Tibet”.

The next three months would see him at one point trying to skimp by as his funds exhausted to only 50 dollars, to living the hedonistic life in Thailand, picking up hitch hikers and surviving blizzards in New Zealand, and finally ending up in Singapore.

It was in Singapore where Dr Horkey was expected to grow a huge chiropractic practice, helping people realize their natural inborn potential for health. Teaming up with the largest Chiropractic group in Asia, he opted to spearhead a project to help start clinics in underserved Indonesia. After getting things off the ground and falling in love with the people of Indonesia, paperwork issues led to his deportation from the country he was beginning to love and call home.

Forced to leave everything behind once again, he boarded a plane to Singapore feeling defeated and broken. His funds dried up again to nearly zero and he contemplated giving up on his dream. Dr Horkey started anew and six months later, built up one of the largest chiropractic practices in Asia. Fast forward four years and he has helped thousands regain their inborn healing abilities and has generated millions of dollars in the process.

Today, Dr. Matthew Horkey is an author, speaker, and adventurer who is dedicated to helping people realize their potential.

Part travel memoir, part instructional guide, he aims to teach and inspire people through the natural laws of the universe.
