Here at RMA of Connecticut, our staff strives to provide patients with the best care possible. One way we do that is by setting personal, higher-educational goals, so that we can be the most up-to-date, skilled providers we can be.

The latest achievement? Two of our acupuncturists just crested a major milestone...

Dr. Amy Matton, DACM, L.Ac. and Dr. Elaine Malin, DACM, L.Ac. have received Doctorate degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science.

The doctoral degree focused on increasing clinical skills, patient-centered care, working integratively with Western medicine, and evidence-based practice. As the demand for patient-centered integrative care in the field of fertility increases, Dr. Matton and Dr. Malin will continue to provide patients with natural, evidence-based care.

“We want to congratulate and acknowledge Dr. Amy Matton and Dr. Elaine Malin for their achievements and dedication in the field of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine,” says Robin Mangieri, CEO of RMA of Connecticut. “We combine the best science has to offer through our esteemed fertility doctors along with our expansive integrative fertility and wellness programs to provide our patients with the best care all under one roof.”

Acupuncture can increase fertility by lowering stress and anxiety, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs, and balancing the endocrine system. It can also increase a couple’s chances of conceiving by helping to keep the normal flow of energy unblocked. RMA of Connecticut was involved in a landmark study indicating pre- and post-embryo transfer laser acupuncture improves embryo implantation rates by up to 15%.

Dr. Amy Matton, DACM, L.Ac. has been providing traditional and laser acupuncture to women undergoing treatment for infertility at RMA of Connecticut for 15 years. She also serves as the Coordinator for the Integrated Fertility and Wellness Programs (IFW) at RMA of Connecticut. She is a graduate of Pacific College of Health and Science with a doctoral degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, a licensed acupuncturist and certified herbalist. Dr. Matton’s areas of expertise include women’s health and fertility issues, pain management, anxiety, stress, and adjunctive cancer care.

Dr. Elaine M. Malin, DACM, L.Ac. is a licensed acupuncturist and certified herbalist who has worked with RMA of Connecticut patients for seven years. A general practitioner with a broad range of experience, Dr. Malin has specialized training and experience in women’s health issues including fertility and pregnancy, as well as in treating anxiety, stress, and their physical manifestations.

RMA of Connecticut couldn't be more proud of our team's accomplishments and believe that each individual's successes fuel our overall ability to serve you.
