Welcome back Rachel! 👣 👣

Rachel D. Specht (formerly Demattio) has been with ACNJ since 2011. Her calm, professional manner is well balanced with her warmth and grace and she has created a dedicated following of patients. Rachel graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York near the top of her class with a Master’s of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine. Rachel is a graduate of Fordham University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Journalism She is licensed to practice acupuncture in the State of New Jersey and is nationally certified in herbal medicine and acupuncture by the National Certification for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Rachel’s journey into the world of acupuncture began at a very young age, thanks to her mother’s passion for finding alternative, natural ways to wellness and healing for the family. From a young age, Rachel was exposed to Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Reiki and other non-traditional healing modalities. Her own desire to learn this medicine ignited after receiving her B.A. in Journalism. It was a moment of “instant knowing” that led her to the realization that her path in life was to become a healer. Rachel worked at the Randolph Pain Relief and Wellness Center, and maintained her own practice of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine alongside acclaimed Dr. Nicholas Abrishamian of Chester, New Jersey. Here she learned how to incorporate natural nutritional therapies, the use of supplements, homeopathy and the interpretation of blood work to help detect illnesses and imbalances in the body.

Rachel is proficient in treating all conditions and disorders and supporting her patients to optimal wellness. One of her specialties and interests is  in Constitutional Facial Rejuvenation. She is certified by  Mary Elizabeth Wakefield in this holistic approach to natural vitality and beauty.  Her acupuncture style is gentle and rhythmic, her demeanor is calm and encouraging. Her ultimate goal is to teach patients how they can be well and stay well, to empower them to maintain a positive outlook throughout their journey to a healthier and happier self. Today she is happily situated in her profession where she strives to bring out the best in her patients and herself on a physical and spiritual level.


Kind, Caring, Respectful, Understanding, Helpful, Trustworthy. These are just a few words to describe Rachel, one of the practitioners at The Acupuncture Center of New Jersey. From the initial consult to now Rachel has helped me with many issues (colds, allergies, etc.). She listens to my concerns whether big or small and always has a pleasant demeanor. Rachel makes you feel relaxed and at ease with each treatment and you leave feeling happier. I would highly recommend her. All the practitioners are wonderful as are the front desk staff and the practice is very clean and comfortable.

I have had chronic back pain for over 40 years from an injury in my teens and have gone to several chiropractors for years which provided temporary relief. The pain would still wake me up in the middle of the night and would have to take pain medications every night. I have being seeing Rachel Demattio for acupuncture for a few years now and I ‘m able to sleep through the night and no more pain medications. This is the best I have felt in years. Rachel is great at what she does. I have recommended several other people to her and everyone loves her.
