Building Better Health, Together

Thanks for visiting! We have moved our Carlsbad office down to Mission Valley. We are no longer seeing patients in Carlsbad, but we would LOVE to see you in our main clinic in Mission Valley, Natural Harmony Reproductive Health. Hope to see you soon!

Chronic Conditions

Rooted in the philosophy that the body has the innate capacity to heal, acupuncture and integrative medicine can support many chronic health issues by promoting and restoring balance in the body’s most fundamental systems.

Fertility & Pregnancy

Support fertility & pregnancy with acupuncture & integrative medicine by balancing the endocrine (hormone) system, promoting circulation to the uterus and ovaries and reducing stress. For both female and male fertility support.

Pain Management

From irregular or painful periods to endometriosis, PCOS, uterine fibroids and more, acupuncture and integrative medicine can help to reduce inflammation and promote circulation allowing for natural and effective management of pain.

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.

For quite some time I’ve had an undetermined pain on my left side and I did all kinds of blood work, urgent care and at one time even the emergency room, but no relief. In talking to Kim, she told me about acupuncture and at first I was very hesitant because of those little needles, but to my surprised it was a piece of cake. After just two sessions I began to noticed a difference in that area as far as pain was concerned. I felt a lot better and to this day I do not have that pain! Levi M.

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 visit Kim after severely spraining my right ankle. Her treatment provided me with substantial pain relief and an immediate decrease in swelling… and relaxed me so much I fell into a deep sleep. At  the end of the appointment, she put some acupressure stickers on my ankle which helped control the swelling over the next few days. I would definitely visit her again and would recommend her to anyone experiencing musculoskeletal pain or discomfort. Daniel M.
