My experience of acupuncture:
I had heard about acupuncture for fertility but didn’t try this until my friend who knew about my previous IVF attempts gave me Jenny’s contact details. I was at the point that after 4 IVF attempts which hadn’t been successful based on very precise science and medications that I decided to try acupuncture. I had decided that my 5th IVF attempt would be my last as after 4 previous rounds of IVF and 3 pelvic surgeries I thought I was getting too old and was emotionally over it.
I used to mostly enjoy my acupuncture sessions. To start, I was a bit nervous but as I learned to trust Jenny and realise that the needles really didn’t hurt I would often fall asleep during my sessions. I attended acupuncture on a weekly basis and this extended to fortnightly sessions at times.
I did all that I was asked by Jenny – eg I used to put my feet in a hot bucket of water in the first weeks of commencing acupuncture.
I believe acupuncture was a part of my success of having my baby as this was the only factor which hadn’t been tried at previous IVF attempts.

Baby Mihaan was born on 23/01/2019, weighing 3.41kg and well developed:)
Below is what his mum Mrs S said about her story:
We were trying for a year when our GP recommended us to try acupuncture as an alternative. Having seen Natural Harmony sign before, I contacted Jenny and made an appointment. From the very first meeting, Jenny was friendly and very patient in answering all my questions.
We started acupuncture treatments and I am amazed to achieve the success that just after two treatments. Continued treatment after conceiving was beneficial for my nausea as well. I am very thankful to Jenny for being with us throughout our journey – it wasn’t only the acupuncture that Jenny helped us with she also advised us on healthier lifestyle before conceiving and again throughout the pregnancy.
I would recommend Jenny to anyone who is trying to have a baby naturally – thank you Jenny 🙂

Ms. Leah Ramos found herself pregnant naturally on 24th October 2018, HCG was 1,900IU on 25th October and the baby heart beat was caught on 6th November 2018.
Below is what she said about her story:
We have been trying for 8 years and went for 2 IVF Treatments. 1 fail and 1 Success last 2016 but had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. Since then we tried to get pregnant naturally. When I went for a holiday back in the Philippines Dec 2017, my family referred me to a Reproductive Immunologist specialist and had some tests done, it turned out that my Lymphocyte Level is low and my anti-bodies are low and thus have a low immune system. I had 6 Sessions of Lymphocyte Immunization to boost my immune level so that my body won’t attack all foreign objects that’s entering my system. My Lymphocyte level was corrected however I didn’t fall pregnant in 3 months after trying.
On April 2018, we have started the acupuncture treatment weekly and it probably took us about 4 months of total sessions. April- July 2018 Jenny explained that my uterus has to be cleaned for about 2-3 menstrual cycle, so I was pretty happy to see changes during my periods. Jenny has been with me on my journey telling me all what to do, even giving me the strips for ovulation to time it right. She has been my motivation every week and I believe that my stress level has been taken care of too.
I have continued my acupuncture after the pregnancy so that Jenny can make sure proper blood flow will be supplied to my uterus to have a strong attachment. Now this is my last week of my First Trimester and I am looking forward to meet our cute baby at the right time.
I can’t thank Jenny enough for taking care of me and making things possible for us. This has been my first natural pregnancy at the age of 37 and I have faith in her that she’s more than capable of doing magic. She works wonders and you also have to believe and take care of your body. I will still be seeking her expertise and perform acupuncture throughout my pregnancy journey, thank you Jenny.

Baby Khadija was born on 18/05/2018, from a natural birth!
What her mum said on 22/11/2017:
We been trying to have baby for 5 years and went for IVF program in December 2016. Jenny has been taking care of my health and making sure my body is ready to accept the embryo.
I had a long treatment with Jenny before my IVF. Doctor found I had a hyperthyroid and therefore I had to put it under control otherwise it can cause miscarriage. So I went to Jenny for acupuncture, to re balance my hormones.
Both of my fallopian tubes was blocked. Through laparoscopy, the gynocologist had to drained and clipped it, so the toxic water won’t go to the uterus and kill / flush out the embryo. It will increase the chances of successful IVF by clipping it, but it means I have no chance of natural pregnancy.
My first embryo transfer was not successful, second embryo from the same cycle is transferred and Jenny did acupuncture couple of times before the embryo transfer, on the day of the embryo transfer, then continuously doing acupuncture once a week up to week 12 of pregnancy.
Too many factors involve in the IVF process, no one can really tell you why it is not successful. But I would strongly recommend you to go and see Jenny for acupuncture treatment, because not only a brilliant and knowledgeable acupuncturist Jenny is, she is the loveliest and most caring person, that you can be assure of you are in the best hand!!

What her mum Monita said on 08/02/2018
I’m a 45yr old female who suffers from very heavy periods and dangerously low iron levels. My partner and I tried for years to have a baby naturally, only to be told by our GP as well as many online sources that it was highly unlikely at my age.
About 2 years ago we were surprised to be told I was pregnant. Sadly it wasn’t mean to be as our baby had no heartbeat at 6weeks and I eventually miscarried by week 7. We came across the Harmony Clinic website about a year ago and read all the reviews on the positive experiences many families had through alternative Chinese medicine. Feeling a bit unsure, we thought “what do we have to lose?” At my first meeting with Jenny, I found her to be very knowledgeable about female & male fertility, as she took the time to explain a lot of things to me as well as walk me through ways to improve one’s health and chances of conceiving a baby naturally.
We started the acupuncture treatments on a weekly basis, and every time we attended the appointments – Jenny was always so kind and caring, but at the same time very informative and gave us a lot of sensible and great advice for a healthier lifestyle for both myself and my partner. We took on board all of Jenny’s advice and even attended a fertility seminar, which she had kindly invited us to.
We can honestly say, that Jenny definitely knows what she’s talking about, and she’s pretty much been with us throughout our journey because everything is harder at my age. We now see Jenny once a month to ensure I remain healthy throughout the pregnancy.
We’ve been through so much, but Jenny has been there every step of the way for us. She’s more than just our acupuncturist – Jenny is like family to us.
For anyone who believes it’s not possible to have a baby naturally later in life – we encourage you to not give up hope. Because we didn’t give up.
Thank you Jenny for everything.

I started having acupuncture with Jenny in June 2017. I used to have lots of cramps and headache before and during my periods, however, just after two or three times acupuncture with her, I am glad I didn’t give up hopes of conceiving and keep doing the weekly acupuncture. Jenny’s treatment is very unique and professional, she is also very caring during the treatment to make sure I don’t get cold and can relax. She is also a very friendly person to chat with.
I highly recommend Jenny and wish more couples can be benefited from her.
I sought assistance from Jenny at Natural Harmony at short notice when undergoing my first round of IVF. I had researched all possible ways to increase the chances of a successful implantation and acupuncture was consistently mentioned. I drove immediately from the fertility clinic to Jenny’s practice after the embryo transfer.
I went back to Jenny on several occasions to provide the best chance of survival in those early stages. She was always genuinely caring and provided valuable advice. She is obviously very passionate and knowledgable about Traditional Chinese Medicine and I will be sure to go back to her when we are ready for baby number two to come along!
What his mum Rosie.S said on 25/05/2017
My husband and I had been trying for almost a year to get pregnant with no success. My periods had stopped for 5 months and before being referred to fertility treatment I decided to try acupuncture with Jenny to try to regulate my hormones naturally.
I saw her each week for just over a month and would highly recommend it to anyone trying to conceive. I couldn’t be more thankful!!

Baby Ayla was born on 10/07/2017 from a C-section, weighing 2.95kg 🙂
What her mum R.B said on 08/11/2017:
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 10 years. We’ve tried everything – from traditional to western – and went through three rounds of IVF. For my fourth embryo transfer, a friend suggested that I see Jenny from Natural Harmony to increase the chances of successful implantation. I was sceptical as I had tried acupuncture.
At the last minute and very short notice, I decided to try. Jenny saw me before and after the embryo transfer and I continued to see Jenny during the first trimester so my body can provide the optimum care and to be able to hold on to the pregnancy.
I am thankful to Jenny! Right from the start I felt at ease with her. Jenny patiently addressed any concerns and questions I had – which was quite a few! She is a genuinely caring and supportive person.

I visited Jenny from Natural Harmony when I was ten days over due with my first baby. I had tried all other natural induction methods and decided I would give acupuncture a try before my medical induction booking 4 days later.
Jenny was very warm and friendly. She didn’t plan to work that Thursday afternoon but came into the office just to help me with my special case. She used acupuncture in a number of areas which was pain free and comfortable. We had great chats along the way.
Jenny told me to come back In to see her in 48 hours if there was still no progress. I believe that Jenny assisted kick start my contractions and further assisted in my fast delivery.
Jenny is very professional and very kind lovely person, I recommend her to anyone and everyone having troubles with fertility or pregnancy.

Baby Rory was born from a natural birth after acupuncture labour inducing, weighing 2.8kg 🙂
What his mum Hannah said before:
I came to see Jenny 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.
Jenny is amazing. I feel safe energised and happy when I see her. Now she’s helping me with morning sickness!

Baby Eva was born on 29/04/2017 from a natural birth, weighing 2.925kg!
What his mum Etty said on 30/10/2016:
Over the past 6 years, my partner and I have had 12 unsuccessful fertility attempts, via intrauterine insemination (IUI) and In vitro fertilisation (IVF) at Fertility clinics in South Africa and in New Zealand. From the beginning of 2016, in preparation for our 13th attempt, I started receiving fertility acupuncture treatments from Jenny Li on a weekly basis.
I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Jenny Li, who played a vital role with my fertility to not only prepare my body for the conception of our beloved baby, but also ensure that I hold on to our little miracle. Jenny Li, your gender pulse diagnosis at 9 weeks was correct – we are indeed having a little girl.
Jenny furthermore helped me to lower my anti-depressant medication dosage that I have been on this medication for the last 10 years.
Thank you Jenny for your support and genuinely caring. You are amazing！

The little Purell’s baby was born on 09/01/2017, from a home birth and Mr. Purell delivered the baby himself!
What his mum S. Purell said on 09/09/2016:
It took us a long time to conceive our first child and when we decided to try for our second again it took us a long time, a year without any luck. So I thought I would give acupuncture a go. Jenny was very informative, easy to talk to and caring, and provided lots of advice.
Jenny predicted it would be a boy at 8 weeks after the pulse diagnosis and she was right！
I would definitely suggest anyone trying to conceive to contact Jenny and give acupuncture a go. Thanks Jenny!

Baby Ashlynn was born on 26/12/2017, from a natural birth 🙂
What her mum D.X said on 06/01/2017:
As a healthy woman with no apparent fertility problems, my only concern is my age as 37 years old. In our asian society, I’m grouped in high risk pregancy. As a first baby pregancy, I want to make sure my body will be ready for it and help improve my chances to conceive. I was referred by friend to Jenny as she has full of experience especially in fertility acupuncture treatment.
I can honestly say it was one of the best decision I have made throughout my entire journey to conceive. Jenny was really friendly and privided a lot of useful knowledge apart from treatment. I found Jenny to be friendly, positive and professional. I will continue to use Jenny in the future and I will happy recommend her to family and friends with confidence.

Baby Evan was born on 23/11/2016, from a natural birth 🙂
What his mum A.R said on 26/05/2016:
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 am very grateful of Jenny’s caring support during this whole time. Thank you.

Baby Conner was born on 07/10/2016, 2 days before the due date 🙂
What his mum Concepcion said on 30/04/2016:
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.
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 🙂

Baby Isabella was born on 28th June 2015 that was a few days early than the due date.
What her mum Karla said on 14/07/2015:
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. I was also trying to get pregnant and she focused the acupuncture on this as 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 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.
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 practitioner 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.
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)
Jenny is amazing and always highly recommend to friends from day-to day treatments to specialized 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……
Jenny is the first to call. Contact her today your body will thank you.

Ms. C.E’s baby was born safely on 3rd June 2014.
What Ms. C.E said on 05/12/2013:
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.

Baby Briar was born on the 06/06/2016, she was a very healthy 8lb 4 or 3.75kg and is growing like a weed.
What her mum Kat said on 07/11/2013:
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……
I would happily recommend Jenny to any of my friends.

Baby Marlon was born on 12/05/2013 from a C-section.
What his mum Tina said on 01/11/2012:
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……
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.
Tina M, Avondale(* 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 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.
