I am Emily Konstan, Licensed Acupuncturist, Essential Somatics Movement Teacher, and Certified Hypnotist.
My mission is to craft the best treatment for your individual needs. All of my patients receive a customized consultation and treatment plan. I offer acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Somatic mobility lessons, and hypnotherapy sessions, as well as facial rejuvenation gua sha and ear seeds. Individually or combined, these services can treat a wide range of physical, mental, and emotional issues.
For your convenience, I provide many of these services both in-person and online. You can schedule both types of services here.
I have been practicing in the Central Mass community for over 18 years, and have developed an extensive network of practitioner referrals. If I think that you are better served by another modality, I am happy to refer you out.
At Down to Earth Acupuncture we treat a wide variety of conditions and a diverse group of patients. We welcome people of all races, national origins, ages, religions, abilities or disabilities, shapes and sizes, incomes, marital statuses, sexual orientations, sexes, and gender identities.

“After more than 6 months of sciatic pain in my right leg and after trying various methods for relief I started practicing Essential Somatics - including a weekly seated class taught by Emily Konstan. Within a month I was feeling relief and shortly after that my sciatica all but disappeared. The movements are done very slowly and gently without any force or pain. I highly recommend Somatics for anyone with back, shoulder or neck pains that may be due to chronically contracted muscles. It helps your body re-learn how to relax!”
“I suffered a low back strain and tried for three days to manage the pain and muscle spasms on my own. After just one acupuncture treatment with Emily, my pain was dramatically reduced and my mobility was restored by 80 percent. As a health care professional of 19 years and a business owner, I have experienced a good deal of physical ailments ranging from the common cold to whiplash, as well as stress, anxiety and insomnia. Over the years I have depended on acupuncture as a consistently effective treatment that leaves me feeling relaxed, pain-free and energized.”
“In the summer of '07, I began to experience severe pain, weakness and numbness in my right hand and forearm. My doctor recommended surgery. I decided to try acupuncture since I wanted to avoid surgery. After 4 or 5 acupuncture treatments with Emily, there was significant improvement in my arm. The pain and numbness decreased and the strength returned. I most highly recommend acupuncture therapy!”
“Emily is friendly and professional. First and foremost, she listens and remembers. The treatments themselves are almost completely painless and during them I find myself more relaxed and breathing more deeply than I thought possible. Since beginning treatments with Emily, the frequency and severity of my migraines has lessened to the point that I've been able to resume more normal activities and she has completely eliminated the accompanying facial pain, which had previously been a daily problem. Overall I have more energy and look forward to the sessions and the relief and sense of well-being that I leave the office with.”
“So far, I have lost 14 lbs. It has been pretty consistently 1lb per week. I’m very happy with my results! I am eating healthy and staying active. I listen to the [hypnosis] recording about once a week. Thank you for helping me!”
“Emily’s instruction on mindful Somatic movement has helped me learn how to soften muscles that have been in constant tension for years."
“I had experienced chronic pain for almost a year when I began acupuncture therapy with Emily. After just a few visits, my pain became more manageable and I found myself becoming more active again. I am now able to go up to a week at a time without any pain. With each visit to Emily, I continue to improve.”
“Emily is amazing and has a terrific 'bedside manner.' I always feel relaxed and refreshed after my treatments.”
“Emily took the time to listen to me and was very caring. She was very thorough in her diagnosis and helped with the digestion problems I'd been having.”
“Emily's sessions have allowed me to approach work and life with renewed energy and vitality.”
