Merritt is amazing! I found her when my husband and I learned we had some fertility problems. I was told I had a high FSH/low AMH and that my chances of conceiving naturally were very low. Devastated, we were ready to try anything if it helped our chances, all along thinking we would need IVF. Merritt put a plan in place and started treating me weekly. I am happy to report that after 4 months of treatment we were able to conceive naturally!!! Cyndi C.

I was terrified of needles and as a result experimented with everything else before giving acupuncture a try. I wish I had tried it first! Merritt has helped my body improve leaps and bounds. I struggle with PCOS and general hormonal and cycle issues. She has helped me see progress in a matter of weeks, which is incredible because I’ve spent the last 10 years trying to get similar results from numerous other treatments. Jessi A.

Thank God for Merritt Jones! For most of my life I have struggled with menstrual irregularity. In fact, prior to receiving acupuncture from Merritt I had not gotten my period in over six months! After consulting with Merritt, she reassured me that I was not alone in my struggles. Her kindness combined with her extensive knowledge was exactly what I needed. Shortly after undergoing treatment with Merritt, my period was back on track! I could not be happier! Chelsea R.

I went to Merritt looking for help with fertility. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for 8 months, and I was starting to feel discouraged. My first visit, Merritt wrote a full health and diet plan for me to “eat myself pregnant” (also a book she recommended), recommended the best supplements I’ve ever taken (I feel great), and I was pregnant within the same month of seeing her!
