Amy Matton and Elaine Malin
Fertility practice RMA of Connecticut, in Norwalk, has announced that Dr. Amy Matton, DACM, LAc, and Dr. Elaine Malin, DACM, LAc, have received Doctorate degrees in acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Health and Science. The doctoral degree focuses 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, Matton and 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 percent.
Matton 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. Matton’s areas of expertise include women’s health and fertility issues, pain management, anxiety, stress and adjunctive cancer care.
Malin 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, she 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.
