I had been trying to become pregnant for a year, so I went to the doctor and since we were fine, she recommended that I try acupuncture before continuing with any further tests. I had never tried acupuncture before, and had heard good things about it, so I was very interested in giving it a go.
I found Jenny to be so lovely, easy to talk to and very informative. The whole experience was very relaxing, pain free and she made me feel nice and calm. I visited her once a week and I began to notice I had more energy, was sleeping better and I worked on trying to relax more.
Then a few months later, I fell pregnant! I continued to have acupuncture throughout my first trimester, which helped me feel great with barely any morning sickness. I am very grateful of Jenny’s caring support during this whole time. Thank you.”

I went to see Jenny to get help for carpal tunnel in my left wrist, that had been getting worse and worse for months. In only a couple of sessions of massage and acupuncture she had eliminated all pain and instability in my wrist. I am now able to work, exercise and lift my kids without any strain at all.
I highly recommend Jenny’s treatment for this ailment.
Nicky E, Grey Lynn(Results are varied from person to person)
I’ve been struggling to get pregnant for almost 9 years. I had one natural pregnancy where unfortunately I miscarried. And then, I had 2 IVF cycles with a total of 6 embryo transfers in which one resulted to positive but eventually miscarried at 6 weeks. It was a difficult journey that lead me to try accupuncture.
Jenny was recommended by my Osteopath. During my first session with her she initially checked my toungue and she noticed that it’s a bit pale indicating possible energy and blood defficiency. And that could probably explain why I had a natural pregnancy but there’s not enough blood circulation to sustain viability. And so, I had the accupuncture treatment with moxa. After the treatment, I felt something on my ovaries like a pinching sensation. I had a couple of sessions and before I went to the third session I just wanted to test if I’m pregnant because my period is also a bit delayed. And to my surprise, I was indeed pregnant!
Jenny had been very supportive during the early stage of my pregnancy, giving me some tips on how to take care of myself during that critical stage. I highly recommend Jenny, she’s very knowledgeable and experienced in the use of accupuncture to help with infertility issues.
Thanks again Jenny for you have been instrumental in making our dream come true

I had arranged to have acupuncture to my left knee and left ankle which were both giving me continual pain due to arthritis ( related back to sports injury and motor bike injury) . I had been sceptical as to if this would work BUT after 2 visits Dr. Jenny li and Raymond have worked wonders.
The pain level has been reduced greatly and walking up/ down stairs and sloping ground is no longer a problem. I will continue to have this treatment.
Carl R, New Lynn(Results are varied from person to person)
I became a client of Dr Jenny Li for smoking cessation acupuncture, and after 40 years of smoking I am now almost 2 months smoke free.
From the very first acupuncture session I had no nicotine withdrawal symptoms, leaving me to deal with the habit side of smoking without stress or discomfort. The acupuncture sessions were painless and full of Dr Jenny’s wonderful insights.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Jenny for both her extensive knowledge of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and her lovely warm & caring manner. Dr Jenny Li has my utmost regard.
David C, New Lynn(Results are varied from person to person)
I came to Jenny Li, acupuncturist, part way through an intense chemo-therapy course for pancreatic cancer. I had nausea and fatigue with very low energy levels. I have found that acupuncture has greatly assisted with nausea management and energy. After each session I walked out feeling significantly more energetic. My energy levels have progressively increased and I am better
able to manage nausea.
Jenny engages in a warm manner, explains well and is pro- active in patient management.
Hugh J, Block House Bay(Results are varied from person to person)
I have always carried extra weight due to a poorly functioning metabolism. I am active and eat well but nothing shifted the weight. I did the two-week weight loss program and the results have been incredible. I lost 2.4 kilos in my first week and have maintained a great level of energy and my metabolism is finally on its way to functioning properly.
The diet is easy enough to stick to and I can honestly say, this treatment really makes a difference that doesn’t just stop once the program is over. I finally lost 13cm on my waist and feel like I am making progress with my weight loss and actually seeing and feeling results.
Ashleen P, Wattle Dawns(Results are varied from person to person)
I came to see Jenny in August as I had incredibly irregular periods. My youngest son was two and a half and I had only had two periods since his birth. My husband and I wanted another child but needed to get past this barrier.
Jenny was informative and encouraging. I left after my first appointment feeling as though I was in good hands and positive that I would get my cycle back for this first time in a long time.
Two days after my first appointment my period returned and I had another cycle 5 weeks later. Now after three months of visits I am two months pregnant. I never knew it could happen so quickly! Jenny is amazing. I feel safe energised and happy when I see her. Now she’s helping me with morning sickness! Thanks Jenny!
Hannah D, New Lynn(Results are varied from person to person)
I chose to see Jenny for a very common problem, acne. I have suffered with it since puberty, and now almost seven years. I feel that it has affected me more than most people, but that is arguable. Each day, my self-confidence has (and still does) depended on how good my skin was looking. Since it began, I have avoided and refused to have photos taken of me because of feeling so terrible about myself.
It’s so sad to think that I have prevented for myself and others the chance to look back and see how I have changed and grown over the last seven years. My doctor handed me many different contraceptives and antibiotics, and I willingly took them for years with the hope that my skin would get better but it didn’t. I gave up on my doctor after realising the damage I was doing to my body with all these pills and decided to try a traditional approach, acupuncture.
It’s important to note that Jenny was the third acupuncturist I visited. It took a while to find someone who was actually capable of making a difference, but now I won’t see anyone else. Not only has my skin improved one thousand fold within the last four months of seeing her, but she has helped stabilised my menstrual cycle, stress, and she is now working on my tinnitus (constant ringing in the ears).
To say she is incredible is an understatement. For Jenny, my issue is only minor. I hear stories of how she helped other patients with much more important problems, such as a woman who struggled with fertility for years, had gone on to become pregnant after only a few sessions with Jenny. I really can’t express my gratitude enough for helping to return to me my confidence. Though we are still in the process, I can actually see and feel the difference her work has made (and so quickly!)
I have been seeing Jenny for the past four weeks for my period pain. I am so pleased to say that my period pain has improved!
I have lived with monthly cramps, intense fatigue, blood clots and lack of energy. I saw Jenny once a week for acupuncture and it made all the difference in the world! That first period was 90% better than any I’ve had in the past. I had more energy, relaxed and no more pain. I will continue seeing Jenny for acupuncture because I know that my body will benefit from it.
I highly recommend seeing Jenny for acupuncture to anyone suffering from pain.
Thank you Jenny, you have been wonderful.
Podjanee T, Lynfield(Results are varied from person to person)
I have been a client Dr Jenny Li for the past 5 months and in this time have had a considerable improvement in my health and general well being.
I have had acupuncture many times over the years- in New Zealand, China, the United States and Australia- and have fundamentally come to trust it as a health approach. Of all the practitioners I have been treated by over the years, Jenny is definitely the best. She is extremely caring, and so knowledgeable about her craft that her intuition is well honed. Jenny is very good at listening to the client and I feel that my health is in very good hands with her.
I cannot recommend her highly enough- she’s the best!

Karla’s baby girl Isabella was born on 28th June 2015 that was a few days early than the due date. What an active girl! Can’t wait to come out! Congratulations to the whole family XOXO
Here is what Karla said about her experience of having Isabella:”I decided to try acupuncture because I was having very bad headaches, and was also very stressed. I started seeing Jenny and right away I knew I was in good hands – in a few weeks there was already improvement. I was also trying to get pregnant and she focused the acupuncture on this as well. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and baby and I are very well. I completely recommend Jenny, she is very professional, but also kind and compassionate.”
Karla H, Glen Eden(Results are varied from person to person)
I visited Dr Li because I had a sore knee and was signed up to do an 8.5km run in the next 10 days. My knee was most painful when walking down slopes or down stairs. After just one acupuncture treatment, I couldn’t believe the improvement. I went for a walk later the same day and when walking down steps to the beach, I felt no discomfort at all in my treated knee. Actually my other knee felt sore in comparison! I have been incredibly impressed. I highly recommend Dr Li not only for her obvious skills at acupuncture, but also for her lovely bedside manner.

My mother had a very severe hemorrhagic stroke on Friday 6th February, 2015 and was left in a coma for about three weeks. She slowly started to wake up but she was very paralysed on the left side of her body, including the left side of her face. After she was cleared of being critically ill, she was moved to a rehabilitation centre and started acupuncture with Jenny Li.
Jenny has been coming in to treat my mother with acupuncture three times a week for the last a few months, and my mother has had a dramatic improvement in her recovery. In the beginning, she was not about to sit herself up in bed, nor stand up alone without full support. However she was able to sit up on her own, could stand up with minimal aid and now she can walk again. She has regained function for some of the muscles in her leg and her facial paralysis is hardly noticeable at all which has made her speech much clearer and easier to understand.
The stroke has left my mother with some depression and obvious frustration that she has lost a lot of her independence. Most of my mother’s intellect has returned to its normal state, but Jenny has provided my mother with some traditional herbs to take to aid re-absorbing all the bleeding she had from the stroke. Jenny has been patient and understanding throughout this difficult situation and is always willing to give encouragement. She is flexible with the times she gives treatment which has been of great assistance for my mother’s recovery.
Annabelle Y, Epsom(Results are varied from person to person)
I was looking for a quick weight loss program before I go to Fiji to attend my sister’s wedding. So I attended the Natural Harmony Clinic & was surprised at how easy & pain free the acupuncture treatment was. I struggled with sticking to the diet plan & Chinese medicine in week 1, but I did it & I lost 4kg. This was exciting & it gave me more confidence to carry on.
In week 2 I didn’t lose as much weight, but my measurements dropped by 5-6cm around my waist(altogether lost 9.5cm on both waist and hip). Most of all I could see the results, I even had friends comment at how good I was looking. I found Jenny to be very experienced & knowledgeable & I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a kick start to any weight loss program.

In October 2014 I started acupuncture with Jenny Li as I had every bad tinnitus and it was just driving me crazy . At first I was scared to think I would have needles in my head and arms and legs. Jenny made me feel very relax and talked me through the first session, my tinnitus has halved over the time I have been going to see Jenny. She is very professional and talks to you about your medical problem and what she can do to help you.
K Mellor, Block House Bay(Results are varied from person to person)
I was getting very bad shingles pain for over 6 weeks and the medications prescribed to me did not help until I sought treatment from Jenny. After four treatments the pain subsided and disappeared.
I am very grateful for the help and support Jenny gave me during this time.
David. W, Block House Bay(Results are varied from person to person)
My 21 year old son Corey was diagnosed with Bells Palsy early November 2014, our doctor prescribed steroids, strong pain relief and suggested we seek acupuncture treatment.
Within days of being diagnosed Corey met with Jenny to receive his first treatment. The first three weeks Corey saw Jenny twice a week, and then reduced down to once a week. During the third week Jenny started seeing small signs of nerve movement, which gave us hope. Then a further two weeks on and Corey has 60% movement and feeling back, Jenny
predicts a full recovery by Christmas and that made a total of 7 weeks from being diagnosed to full recovery.
We certainly feel blessed that Jenny was part of Corey’s recovery. After every visit Corey felt Jenny was doing everything she possibly could to awaken those nerve endings and stop the headache from using the needles, rolling and therapeutic massage techniques.
I would like to extend a BIG thank you Jenny from a very appreciative mum and an extremely grateful son.
Sharon G, Whangarei(Results are varied from person to person)
I was 12 kilos over the ‘ideal’ for my height, and I was on the approach to the big 40th Birthday. Then I had Jenny’s weigh loss of a two week cleanse with a combination of healthy eating, a ‘tea’ of herbs, and daily acupuncture for 5 days on and 2 days off, 5 days on and 2 days off.
I’ll start with the herbs – this concoction was specially made for me as an individual, based on the questions that Jenny asked me and the measurements she had taken. I had even mentioned being restless – she fixed that with herbs too. The taste of the ‘tea’ – well to be honest, not too bad and it’s only half a cup three times a day before meals.
The diet – EASY! Jenny tells you, “Never be hungry!” Her diet plan was easy to follow, and over the week it’s easy to see why it’s so good for you. Fruit, veg, meat and rice, all in the right combinations on the right days. I was even able to have the odd coffee with skimmed milk. I was never hungry. You keep the metabolism going by eating whenever you feel hungry. This encourages the weight loss.
The acupuncture was a bit of a giggle to be honest. The needles were inserted mainly into my belly with odd ones in my arms and legs. At times there was the odd “ouch” factor, but never for more than a second. I have to admit that I never expected the needles to be hooked up to little electrodes! They pulsed very slightly during the treatment. I was able to tell Jenny if I wanted a higher or a lower intensity and I was happy knowing that I was in control of that. The pulses are to maintain the elasticity of the skin and boost the metabolism. After having three children I was glad to hear that! After 3 sessions of acupuncture I was used to it.
In the first week I lost 2.7kg and in the second 1.5kg. I was delighted. 6cm had come off my “baby pouch” and 2.5 cm off my waist. Since finishing the treatment I’ve continued with Jenny’s eating plan. I feel great, I’m energized and seeing the results is motivating in itself. The weight is still coming off, at a slower rate without the herbs and the acupuncture, but I will be very happy getting into my new dress for my birthday party. Jenny explained that you can maintain an optimum level of on-going results by continuing with 2 of the 3 methods, such as diet and herbs, or herbs and acupuncture etc.
Thanks so much Jenny! I certainly recommend this therapy and have done to many of my friends.
Helen D, New Lynn(Results are varied from person to person)
I am a Registered Nurse working in a Primary Health Setting. I was pregnant with my 2nd baby with having Gestational Diabetes and my due date was the 4th June 2014. I was still working full time as a nurse so I was on my feet a lot and having to monitor my blood sugar levels. My maternity leave was not till mid May so I had along way to go.
When I was 28 weeks pregnant, due to a previous rupture of my Achilles tendon, I started to experience aching, sore feet. So I started researching the internet for therapist that were trained in dealing with pregnant women and with massage to solve this problem as well as acupuncture. (I had in the past received a foot massage and it made my feet worse so I was hesitate for this again). However, I came across Jenny Li Natural Harmony Clinic based in New Lynn and there was an attraction to her advertisement so the next day, I gave her a phone call after work as my feet were so sore and she was able to fit me in with her. I was very relieved and I did not know what to expect from her clinic.
I arrived to her clinic based in Club Physical New Lynn and it was a small, private area and with warm welcoming when I knocked on the door. Jenny Li was very friendly and lead me into a room where I sat down on a comfy chair and her work colleague was going to attend to my feet. The worked very professionally and after the foot massage, I was so relaxed that I was able to sleep properly that night.
After the treatment, Jenny Li came in to see me and we started discussing my pregnancy and she suggested to me about acupuncture and how it could help me for natural delivery which I really wanted as my first delivery was an Emergency C section. So I was keen for this treatment as well as preparing my mind and body for a natural delivery. Jenny suggested to me to phone her after my next scan to see how baby was position and the weight of baby as well.
About 2 weeks later, I phoned Jenny that baby was breeched position so she said it was beneficial to start treatment now so she could turn baby before she was too big. So we started straight away with this technique to help turn baby. I would see Jenny for this twice a week for about 45 mins a session. During receiving this treatment, I felt confident in what Jenny was doing and she was very knowledgeable in her field of work as well as being a qualified Doctor in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Pediatrics so I knew Jenny knew what she was doing and also, coming from a holistic approach, it made the experience more therapeutic for me. Jenny not only focused on my medical condition but also, on my well being and my mind with sleeping etc especially when you are heavily pregnant. When I had my next scan which was 4 weeks later, baby had turned head downwards and in a good position for delivery.
Overall, I was happy with Jenny Li treatment and her approach to me being a client as well as having a health professional background, I was able to understand what Jenny was saying in regards to terminology and that she was professional in her approach and I felt culturally safe when I was treated by Jenny coming from a Maori ethnicity. I would highly recommend Jenny for future treatments and I would see her again for my next pregnancy.
Two weeks later after having my second baby, I was finding my breast milk was still not coming through fully as I had problems with my first baby and ended up partially breast feeding and formula. However, I wanted to fully breast feed this baby and then I had gotten in touch with Jenny. She came over to my house for a visit and advised me a few ways to help the milk supply to be secreted more flowing and to reduce milk build up in my breasts. I did this regime for 1 week and now I am still successfully breast feeding my baby who is nearly 6 months of age.
I was really helpful with this advice by Jenny and thankful, that I had received it.
Jureta T, Glendene(Results are varied from person to person)
In the last year I had headaches on a daily basis, alongside the odd migraine. It made me feel nauseous, light headed and generally unwell. Taking medicine or not did not make any difference, and the eye and hearing tests were well. A specialist of vertigo diagnosed me with vestibular migraines and prescribed me propopanolol, a beta blocker.
The headaches were minimal for a month but then they came back just as bad as in the beginning. My GP suggested that I contact Jenny for an alternative solution to avoid increasing the dosage of my beta blocker. Jenny gave me a very welcoming, cheery and incredibly positive. She sat down with me as if she had all the time in the world to hear about my problems and the journey that had brought me to her. Her wealth of medical knowledge and confidence put me at ease immediately. She has a fabulous sense of humour and she explained exactly what we could do to ease my symptoms.
Jenny finds the problem areas so quickly, and clears them away! My sessions are never rushed – and I come out relaxed. My 6 year old daughter even allowed Jenny to pop a needle in her hand and she thought that was wonderful.
After 4 weeks the results are fantastic. I have HALVED my beta blocker dosage and I’m delighted that acupuncture and massage actually works for me.
Helen D, New Lynn(Results are varied from person to person)
The pain of shingles was totally debilitating, the only thing I could do was sleep and painkillers did nothing to help. After one treatment from Jenny I realized that this was helping immensely. Four sessions later the pain was virtually gone and I could function normally. The shingles is still in my system but well under control.
Thank you Jenny indeed.
Clare Hargrave, Titirangi(Results are varied from person to person)
As a participant of the recent “Changing Minds” seminar addressing the relevance of Acupuncture to mental health services, I found Jenny Li to be informative and very relevant. In this era of pharmaceutical dependence, she spoke candidly of the impact of and the holistic nature to recipients in significance of the efficacy of acupuncture.
Jenny’s “views on acupunctures” 5 Phase theory was both well informed and well documented. I believe her participation in the forum allowed for an educational and progressive review of the impact of such treatments, as well as being that it addesses the very foundations of quantifying understanding outcomes, with regards to establishing more effective practices in mental health service provisions.

I was referred to Jenny by my G.P. after suffering from terrible pain near my jaw for 6 days. Jenny was amazing from the moment I rang her as she was able to see me late that afternoon & although I was pretty nervous about being treated with acupuncture, Jenny made me feel relaxed & after the first treatment I was feeling considerably better. I still had minor pain but was able to stop taking painkillers & resume my duties at work. It only took 2 more treatments & she had cured me of my awful pain. I would recommend her to anyone as she was extremely pleasant to deal with & explained things as we progressed through the treatment. Thank you so much Jenny, it was a pleasure to have you help me sort out my problem.
Conrad Taylor, Glen Eden(Results are varied from person to person)
Jenny is amazing and always highly recommend to friends from day-to day treatments to specialised eg. pregnant treatments.
I have been seeing Jenny for almost 2 years and seen her for cupping when unwell, acupuncture for sprained ankle that nothing else helped. Then the latest was reflexology for my pregnancy which helped with stress and fluid build up. Believe overall how I managed to work right up in pregnancy with ankles only swelling in last week.
Jenny is the first to call. Contact her today your body will thank you.
Melissa Pond, Kelston(Results are varied from person to person)
We had trouble conceiving and after various tests were told we had “unexplained infertility”. Conventional fertility treatment was going to be very expensive for us, so I researched other options, including Chinese medicine / acupuncture, and Jenny was recommended to me. After a detailed conversation (and no invasive tests!) Jenny had a diagnosis and treatment plan. I saw her over the course of several months and am pleased to report I’m now 14 weeks pregnant.
I thought Jenny was very thorough in considering all aspects of my health that might affect my condition, plus she explained her treatment well, which I found helpful in understanding why it was important for me to continue.

Jenny was initially recommended to me by another acupuncturist who was going on holiday. From our first appointment she was professional but also very friendly. She was always happy to answer any questions or concerns I may have had with my treatment. Jenny was also very generous with her time and resources, lending me equipment to use at home and is still checking how I’m going after finishing treatment.
And I’m happy to say that her treatment plan have worked, given my IVF cycle was a success and we are expecting our baby girl in May.I would happily recommend Jenny to any of my friends.

For close to 15 years, I knew that something was amiss with my lung health – episodes of asthma-like shortness of breath and “rattling” in the chest; a sense that during strenuous exercse my lungs weren’t behaving like they should; and a propensity for the slightest cold to flare up to full flu and fever, always from heavy heavy chest colds. Various visits to GPs and recommendations from well meaning friends and family never brought relief or cure.
This summer I visited Jenny and she was immediately confident about what was happening with my lungs (and by the way, a bloaty stomach) and how to treat and cure it. I still don’t understand what really happened, but I can confirm that I now have strong lungs and have survived winter without any illness – unprecedented! The course of treatment was very simple and short. And Jenny herself was a pleasure to deal with.
Brent E, Sandriham(Results are varied from person to person)
When I started to experience pre-menopause symptoms, headaches, loss of sleep, feelings of depression, mood swings, heavy periods, fatigue, and flue like symptoms for 2-3 day, I knew I had to do something about this. I like to look at natural ways to support my body, so Jenny was an obvious option.
Through my sessions with Jenny, I have experienced a great general improvement of my health. Pre-menopause & mood swings symptoms are mild, headaches, loss of sleep, depression, fatigue and flue like symptoms are gone. I was really pleased with how much my mood stabilized – I feel more calm and centered.
Thank you so much Jenny for all you’ve done for me, Jenny’s acupuncture treatment as well as her knowledge as a Chinese doctor are showing in her manner.

I came to Jenny for treatment for an overuse injury in my right hand and wrist. The pain in my hand was very acute and struggled with all daily tasks i.e getting dressed, writing, using a knife and fork etc. After the treatment was completed, the pain levels had massively reduced and have been able to achieve daily tasks with little or no pain.

A letter of thanks–in the words of our mum, in her 83rd year suffering from shingles.
“I would just like to say that the acupuncture I received from Jenny helped me curing the pain I was suffering with a severe case of shingles a nerve disorder.I had the shingles for about 9 weeks and with medication and ointments were helping, but not 100 %. It was recommended by friends to try acupuncture. At first I thought,oh my god what is she doing, but after each session it was less. And after 5 visits with jenny, I can now say that I am free of pain.
I would recommend her and her treatment to anyone.Thanks again Jenny.”
Eileen G, Glen Eden(Results are varied from person to person)
I have suffered from post shingles nerve pain for approximately the last six to seven years. I have tried numerous treatments and medication over the years with no effect. In April of this year I went to see Jenny Li to try accupuncture for my chronic pain. I experienced immediate relief after my first visit. I have been to Jenny for six sessions and I am now pain free. Accupuncture is virtually a painless treatment procedure which has changed my life in a positive way.

I am inflicted with Parkinson’s syndrome, and sought relief of my physical debits. Upon completion of an in-depth enquiry, Jenny prepared a program to assist with downgrading reliefs. After 3 sessions of massage and acupuncture, I noticed a large improvement in my walking efforts, together with better stamina. It was an amazing experience. Acupuncture is worth a try.
The treatment George received was excellent. Jenny has wonderful ability to assist the client.

Jenny was recommended to me by my GP, I had visited her complaining of headaches over my left temple that had become more frequent. My doctor diagnosed these as Neuralgia and said that she could give me medication, which was heavy duty, or try acupuncture. After a thorough examination and taking down my medical history Jenny performed acupuncture, and there was a noticeable improvement in the frequency of the headaches. During my treatments Jenny explained Chinese medicine and answered any questions that I had. My last treatment was 2 months ago and I am happy to report my headaches have not returned. If they were I would have no hesitation in returning to Jenny for further treatment. I have also recommended her to several of my friends.
Julie M, Laingholm(Results are varied from person to person)
I went to see Jenny for weight loss from another happy client of the Clinic. After 5 days of acupuncture I had lost 4kg. Of course I was “over the moon” at the weight reduction. What I lost in weight I gained in energy, confidence and a new lease of life, as I was feeling very low in esteem and was severely depressed, but now I am into joining a water walking class, something I would never have even considered before seeing Jenny.
I will be visiting Jenny for top-ups and to keep me honest with my journey to a renewed ME. Thank you Jenny for being so kind, helpful, understanding, friendly and encouraging.
Annette, Glendene(Results are varied from person to person)
I went to see Jenny after 2 failed IVF cycles. I had been tested by the fertility clinic as having a low egg reserve meaning that I would not be able to produce as many eggs as the clinic would have liked to ensure success. Before going through my third IVF cycle I decided after some research to try acupuncture to give me the best chance of pregnancy.
Jenny worked with me every week for up to 4 months before and then during my IVF cycle. Jenny is very approachable, and I was very comfortable with her. She was very thorough and genuinely cared about my progress every step of the way. Lo and behold, this time I had a successful IVF pregnancy and I am now 12 weeks pregnant. I have not seen Jenny for 8 weeks since pregnant and no longer needed to see her, however she has kept in touch with me, checking in my feelings and making sure that everything was going well. It was great having the peace of mind knowing that by going through acupuncture with Jenny, I would absolutely recommend Jenny’s acupuncture for anyone. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of experience with her craft which comes across very easily when she is working with you.

I was involved in a car accident in April 2008, where even after cervical spine disc replacements; I have a most likely will continue to have a condition which is known as CRPS, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. For me this is my Neck, right shoulder and back.
I write to advise and recommend anywhere suitable that Jenny Li and her magic massage and acupuncture sessions have and do work wonders for my condition and pain. At times even with high volumes of pain medication, I lose vast movement in these areas. With Jenny’s aid I get this movement back, and can continue to try an lead an almost normal lifestyle. I highly recommend these treatments to anyone with low movement or high pain…especially as CRPS has as yet, no cure.
Sian King, Glen Eden(Results are varied from person to person)
I was diagnosed COPD because of a reduced lung capacity due to years of smoking, and I was very quickly out of breath and had very low energy levels. I had to use an inhaler in the rest of my life but I was not completely satisfied with the outcome of my doctor so I went to Jenny Li’s acupuncture clinic for a second opinion.
After acupuncture treatments the phlegm content in my lung had reduced for 80% and my energy levels are on the rise. I am very satisfied with the outcome because I do not have to use any inhaling medicine anymore.

I had recently started having migraine headaches something I had not had since being pregnant with my youngest daughter who is now 8 years old, the last headache was extremely severe and debilitating, lasting for 3 days but also accompanied by flashing lights and paralysis down my left arm.
Jenny prescribed a course of treatment which included acupuncture with an electric charge & also massage. Jenny’s friendly & open nature ensured I felt totally comfortable & at ease with all the treatments she recommended. I only experienced one headache and that was after the first treatment, I have now been migraine free for many months, sleep better and as an extra Jenny have also helped me lose my tummy and I feel fitter, invigorated and full of life.
Allyson T, Avondale(Results are varied from person to person)
Thank you so much Jenny for your help. I’m overjoyed to tell you that I have so much more energy – I can now play with my children without running out of breath in 2minutes. I also had a lot of trouble getting a full night’s sleep because I have sensitive hearing – now I wake up ready to start my day and less grumpy with my children and partner who would all love to say “Thank You”. I feel completely different after seeing you – your treatment relaxes me and has made me a better person and a better mother.
I have also heard from the hospital for my 5th round of egg donation. Based on my blood results from my last round they were going to advise that I should not do another donation, however after seeing you for a few treatments and getting my bloodtests done again they are more than happy with the results and will let me cycle now.
After the first round of egg donations for this couple only resulted in 4eggs, 1 which was a fresh transfer and 1 which was a frozen transfer the fertility staff discussed it and decided that it would be ok for me to cycle again because the egg quality was good… just minimal numbers that’s all. They sent a letter to my intended couple and a copy to myself basically stating that this would be their last publicly funded cycle regardless of whether or not I produced any eggs this next round. This didn’t really instill a lot of confidence in me. I also found out from the clinic that my AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) count was very low 1.33. It had dropped from above 2 early 2010 to 1.33 in Dec last year. I’m pleased to advise that they actually collected 11 yesterday. As of this morning 9 of the 11 fertilised…and they (both the clinic and my intended parents are astonished). In fact my very first round back in 2009 gave the same number of eggs and fertilisation rate and I believe as well as my intended parents that accupuncture was the answer.

I have been having treatments for my painful shoulder and neck from Jenny for a few months now. After thorough assessment of my symptoms and a range of treatments to help provide relief, I have now regained strength and extension of movement in my arm. The pain has decreased too. This allows me to continue my sport of paddling, as well as helping my regular daily activities.
Jenny has provided me with education of the causes of my injuries, and exercises for me to do between treatments. I am very pleased with the treatments you have given me and intend to continue with it, until the optimal results have been achieved.
Linley R, Glendene(Results are varied from person to person)
At the time of my initial consultation I was suffering from chronic neck and shoulder pain, which was interfering with my work and disrupting my sleep.
Just a few months into Jenny’s treatment regime I have experienced so much relief that I have been able to reduce the frequency of my treatments. The neck pain is simply no longer a problem for me, while the pain in my shoulders and back is being adequately managed. My sleep patterns have improved and I can now work for extended periods at my computer and on the phone without pain. Thank you again for your professionalism and, most importantly, the fantastic results.

I have been seeing Jenny for several months for severe chronic pain following an ankle injury 28 years ago. Amazingly form the very first visit I felt relaxes and the very first benefit was a reduction in the stress I had been feeling and I was able to get a really good night sleep for the first time in months.
Jenny is extremely professional and experienced but she has a lovely personality too and I thoroughly look forward to my sessions with her not only for the relief they give me from my symptoms but also for her company. I always leave the sessions feeling much better.

After many years of constant stress, I was not coping with all aspects of my life and needed help. After a thorough and comprehensive initial consultation it was obvious that Jenny has a holistic approach to her work which encompasses all levels of healing.
As western medicine treats only the injury and looks no further than that, it was a relief to have an opportunity to experience healing on many levels. The sessions I have had with Jenny have indeed provided stress relief and healing on the mental, emotional and physical planes and I am, now, more capable of meeting life’s challenges head on.

Her (Jenny Li) talents have helped me greatly with controlling blood pressure, muscular aches and pains and keeping me in good health as I grow older with regular pulse diagnosis and corrective treatment. Her English language skills are excellent which is very necessary when dealing with non-Chinese speakers.
It is my belief that Acupuncture and other traditional treatments are a great supplement to western Medicine can only be successfully administered by suitably qualified ethnic Chinese as only they can fully understand the philosophy that supports this natural treatment.

Jenny has worked with me for 7 years. I am a C6 tetraplegic. I play wheel chair Rugby and it is demanding on my shoulders. Jenny’s treatments and massage has helped maintaining my shoulders, keeping them pain free with good strength and range.
Martin P–former NZ Wheel Blacks, Whenuapai(Results are varied from person to person)
I had great help from Jenny Li when I had my shoulders injured and Jenny has help me a lot to get rid of my pain and if there is something she is always ready to help. Thank you so much Jenny.
Anil K, Glen Eden(Results are varied from person to person)
I met Jenny about a year ago when I approached her to assist in managing my Parkinson’s disease (PD). I have had acupuncture to treat a variety of ailments with positive results. I therefore approached Jenny Li to seek her assistance. I now have acupuncture regularly as I believe it gives relief to some of the symptoms of PD which can be quite debilitating.
I would recommend her to anybody seeking assistance from acupuncture. She always has a friendly disposition and greets you with a smile. She offers hope and encouragement and gives help and treatment where others can’t. She is a professional in her work. While she is “Chinese”, she is for all intents and purpose now, a “Kiwi”.
Geoff Winn, Te Atatu South(Results are varied from person to person)
Thanks very much Jenny for your excellent treatment for my injury, your confidence in my injury treatment was the best part that gives me also comfort. I would also appreciate the half hour therapy gift voucher for my birthday and wish I could change it to half year.
I would not recommend anyone else but only you. You are the best.
Lucas H, Henderson(Results are varied from person to person)
Approximately 2 years ago I was inflicted with acute lower back, hips, and knee and above leg pain due to long hours of physical training. I visited a number of physio therapist and osteopaths but did not help or only for a temporary solution. My swim training instructor recommended Jenny Li to me as she does with a lot of her students; I am so pleased after a number of TCM treatments including massage, acupuncture and cupping that cured all my aches and pains. Not only did Jenny cure my condition she educated me as well and taught me what I was doing wrong in my training and how my pain and muscle tightness can be prevented in the future.
I found Jenny’s TCM treatments to be more than beneficial and far superior to the Western style of massage and other treatments. I still visit Jenny every now and again to keep my body in top condition and I would recommend her and her TCM treatments to anyone with any sort of muscular pain or any other aliment.

Traumatic injury to the right inferior dental nerve and nerve irritation to the distribution of the right trigeminal nerve followed by dental work involving a mandibular nerve block.
I had lost all my nerve feeling on the right side of my face from the dentist going into the nerve with the local anesthesia. My very best friend told me that the best thing to do is to have acupuncture and recommended Jenny Li. I have been seeing Jenny now for 16 acupuncture meetings, one or two days after I can feel a difference each time. Jenny couldn’t do enough for me. As Jenny has done the upmost very right treatment to get my face and life back in order. I recommend to any one that Jenny Li for Acupuncture and nerve repair.
Robert A, New Windsor(Results are varied from person to person)
After purchasing our new business which involves a lot of physical work, I started getting symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. A few week later after working at sites, both my wrist were extremely painful and tingling sensation throughout my fingers and also sore thumb. In the mornings before I wake up, my fingers get frozen and very painful to open and close my palm. This continued for about 3 weeks until I found Jenny’s website via Google.
I had read about surgeries, but that was something I did not wish to have due to post surgery side effects etc. I called Jenny and she was very helpful over the phone and booked me for a free 1st treatment and consultation. Jenny knew exactly what my problem was and was very professional with the entire course of my treatment. After just the 1st visit I felt a lot of difference. After 3 treatments, one every week my symptoms were down to almost 5%. 2 weeks after my last treatment it feels like its almost gone. Thank you Jenny for everything you have done for me, you got my life back on track again.
Al Kumar, Avondale(Results are varied from person to person)
I went to Jenny for severe heads/migraines and she gave me a very detailed examination and told me acupuncture was to help restore my body’s natural balance and energy fields, and also to help the blood flow run correctly to stop the pain.
Jenny kept me very calm and she applied the needles with ease and no effort. The procedure was very painless and quick, you can feel the blood moving around. (This really does feel very relaxing). Within the first 2 weeks I noticed a dramatic difference with the painful attacks, they were more or less gone. After treatment if an attack was coming on it seemed to quickly subside and not be as painful.
I have been seeing my doctor for 2 years previously and they didn’t know what the attacks were and just claimed them as cluster migraines, but Jenny knew otherwise and treated the heart of the problem with instant results, so I can honestly say Jenny has saved me from days of severe painful attacks.
I can now function normally and don’t have to stay at home and be in pain. Thank you Jenny Li you are truly amazing at what you do and I would like to thank you for helping me be “normal” again.
Karen B, Parau(Results are varied from person to person)
I was pregnant with my 2nd child suffered very bad pregnancy sickness so my doctor recommended Jenny Li for acupuncture. I then was amazed that my severe nausea and vomiting would subside after each treatment for 2 – 3 days at a time, this meant I could go to work and function normally for this period. I continued to see Jenny until I was 18 weeks pregnant, she made a huge difference to me and I am very grateful to her.
