I was diagnosed with PCOS and told I would have a hard time conceiving. My husband and I tried naturally for months, but then decided to go to a fertility doctor. We tried two sets of ovulation treatment with Letrozole and both were unsuccessful. We had been reading articles about acupuncture and asked our nurse her opinion. She referred us to Joyce. I was a bit skeptical since I had never tried acupuncture before, and it didn’t seem like it would make a difference with the situation. Boy, was I wrong! We met with Joyce, and I was impressed with all of her knowledge and experience with what we were dealing with. We went to acupuncture weekly, and within a month my progesterone level was higher than it had ever been (by a long shot). We went for one more session before taking the 3rd ovulation shot, and we recently found out we are pregnant! Joyce created a sense of ease and tranquility with the process. I looked forward to the sessions because it was a time of silence and calm. Joyce is truly a remarkable woman that finds solace in what she does. It is easy to see that she loves her profession and enjoys hearing the happy endings for people. We are forever indebted to Joyce for what she has done, and we cannot wait to start our family!

I truly believe that my husband and I would not have gotten pregnant on our very first try of IVF without the help of Joyce! From the first time I met her, I felt like I had known her for years. Joyce made me feel very comfortable and confident. I was nervous with the thought of being poked with needles, but Joyce reassured me of everything she was doing and explained what the points did. I felt that acupuncture helped me relax and I felt so much better after each appointment.
As you read from the testimonial from Julie, we are sisters who went through this process together but we hadn’t planned it that way. We are now both pregnant and I can honestly say I don’t think we could have done it without the help of acupuncture.
I would recommend everyone to use acupuncture for anything and not just infertility. I will be going back to Joyce when I am ready to have my second child. Thank you Joyce from the bottom of my heart for helping me to achieve my dream of having a child!

I just wanted to thank you for all that you have done for my husband and I. I really enjoyed coming to see you every week and felt at ease during my acupuncture treatments for fertility. I felt that acupuncture helped me relax and feel at peace through all my doctor’s appointments and needle poking. I am 37 years old and have been trying to get pregnant for YEARS!!! I had tried three times previously with IVF and had tried a couple times with artificial insemination and was only able to get pregnant once during all those tries. To our dismay, the pregnancy ended being ectopic and we had to terminate the pregnancy. HOWEVER, this time was different. It would be are very last time at trying to get pregnant. I decided to put all my eggs in one basket (pardon the pun) and try everything and anything to help us get pregnant. From the moment I met you, I felt there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. We came up with our game plan and I went to acupuncture while I was doing my IVF treatments. I felt very relaxed through this whole process.
In the meantime, my sister who also has PCOS was trying to get pregnant and had to go through her very first try at IVF. I told her about acupuncture and she decided to give it a try as well.
The big day came and my sister and I were 5 days apart with the timing of our egg retrieval and the implantation. She went first….guess what? She was pregnant!! The pressure was on now for me, but through acupuncture I was able to stay calm and feel at peace with what will be will be. I went next 5 days later. It was great to be able to do acupuncture during the time that we were waiting for the results to come back to see if I was pregnant. The results came in and I was pregnant too!!! What were the chances of this being my VERY last time and my sisters VERY first time and we were BOTH pregnant! I truly believe it was because of Joyce and acupuncture that BOTH of us were able to get pregnant.
I want to again thank you for being there every step of the way. You made such a difference in my life and really helped me relax during this process. I truly believe that acupuncture worked for me AND my sister!! I would recommend to anyone I meet to get acupuncture! Thanks Joyce!

I came to Point Flow after suffering from a miscarriage and being very stressed out about not getting pregnant again. I had a lot of anxiety about not getting pregnant immediately. I had never done acupuncture and thought I would give it a try to help to become pregnant and reduce my anxiety. I now have an adorable 5 month old little boy thanks to Joyce. I cannot thank Joyce enough for all her patience and help. She helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. I am a true believer in Joyce and her wonderful work.

I came to Point Flow to regulate my body and to get proper blood flow to my uterus to help with my infertility issues(I had IVF twice and it did not work). Surprisingly, the acupuncture and herbs not only helped me with my infertility. it helped reduce my anxiety, depression, and helped me sleep through the night(I had insomnia issues for a long time). I always had cold feet, but after receiving treatments, my feet had better circulation. Through both acupuncture and herbs my body was regulated and I became healthy and fertile. I had blessing of giving birth to twin boys through IVF, thanks to Joyce and Point Flow!

My husband and I had been trying to start a family for 9 months when I began treatment with Joyce. I had completed the basic infertility work-up with my gynecologist and was diagnosed with anovulation. After unsuccessful trials of Clomid, Joyce combined acupuncture and Chinese herbs for my first month of treatment. I became pregnant pregnant the first month. Although that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, without Joyce I would have continued to doubt my body’s ability to become pregnant. The acupuncture was also extremely relaxing for me. I would drift off into a meditative state that I am not normally able to acheive. I felt fantastic after each treatment.

I’ve suffered from PMS for almost a year. I was having moderate cramping a week before my period with severe breast tenderness, I felt so uncomfortable. I started taking a herbal formula 2 months ago that Joyce gave me and they helped so much. They relieved my breast tenderness and the cramping decreased greatly. I highly recommend those pills. Thank you Joyce for helping.

I came to Joyce for a consultation because I was tired all the time. After a detailed description of all my ailments, she came up with a plan for energy. As frightening as it looks, the needles don’t really hurt, and I found I had so much more ambition and energy. I especially liked the seeds in the ear for more energy.

My first experience with acupuncture was at Point Flow Acupuncture. Before treatment began I had 2 consultations with Joyce. She was thorough and caring in my health concerns and answering questions. I had been on medication to ease anxiety. I came across a brochure from Point Flow Acupuncture explaining the treatment ans benefits. Also it was suggested to me by my massage therapist. After a series of treatments I felt calmer and had a feeling of well being. Recently I have gone completely off my medication for anxiety. Thanks to acupuncture and Joyce.
