Facial Acupuncture & Microneedling

Both increase collagen and elastin, and increase dewiness and plumping of the skin, utilizing your body’s own healing mechanism.

Facial Acupuncture - Affects the structure of the face (e.g., sagging jowls, drooping eyelids, puffiness, deeper wrinkles, etc.), especially Facelift Acupuncture. Find out more.

Microneedling - Has a much stronger effect on the surface of the skin - plumping, smoothing fine lines, and reducing hyperpigmentation and scarring. Get more info.

Specialty Consults

Specific conditions can benefit from specialized care in the form of herbal, nutritional and lifestyle consultations.

When you have tried everything (or want to stop just short of trying everything, i.e. prescription drugs or surgery), then perhaps a specialized consultation is appropriate for you. We have herbal and lifestyle specialists in the following:

  • Indigestion, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, constipation.
  • Eczema, dermatitis, acne, psoriasis.
  • Diabetes, heart disease.

Virtual Consults: We launched Telemedicine at the end of March 2020, and it has been a very important resource to many of our patients during this time. These appointments are particularly well suited for conditions that respond well to herbs and lifestyle changes: managing stress, immune support, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, women’s health to name a few.

How to Choose a Practitoner

At Energy Matters, we do things a bit differently than other acupuncture clinics. We are a group practice. Some of us are primary care practitioners with areas of specialization, others of us are specialists only. We consult with and refer to each other as needed, in order to give our patients the best possible care. Rather than being good at treating everything, each of us excels at treating a number of issues, and we get to draw on each others expertise. This differs from most clinic with solo practitioners who, by necessity, must treat most every condition.

  • First, consider your goals in seeking treatment. If you have a single primary issue that you are looking to resolve – “I just wish my shoulder pain would go away”; “I am tired of having painful periods every month”; “If it weren’t for this acid reflux, I would be fine”, and one of our practitioners specializes in that issue, make your initial appointment with her.
  • If you have a number of health complaints, or one not listed under specialties, make your appointment with Amanda Rosenberg, Angela Coon or Prajna Choudhury, our Primary Care practitioners. While each of them has their areas of specialization, they are the practitioners who are going to hold the big picture of your health care needs, over the various arcs of healing. Read their profiles, consider their subspecialties and look at their schedules in deciding who to work with.
  • Alternately, you may call or email our intake specialist, who can guide you through the selection process.
