"To say that I credit Jennifer Moss with the birth of my beautiful daughter is really not much of an overstatement. After years of amennorhea due to a very athletic lifestyle and long-term birth control pill use, I had spent over a year trying various synthetic hormone treatments with my ob/gyn to try to get my cycle going again, with no success. I had just been referred to a fertility specialist for my first appointment and was daunted by the "menu" of increasingly invasive procedures that my husband and I faced to try to conceive, so I decided to try Chinese medicine with Jennifer Moss as an intermediate step.
The results were nothing short of miraculous. Within four weekly treatments, my cycle was back and within eight treatments, I was pregnant. I could not believe my eyes when the two little lines showed up on the test early one Saturday morning! Thirty eight weeks later, our daughter was born."
Fertility with IVF
I would highly recommend Jennifer Moss as your TCM provider for fertility problems. Having not had prior exposure to TCM, I contacted Jennifer after I had been through a failed attempt at IVF two months earlier and was starting a second IVF cycle. As I approached the second cycle, I was reluctant knowing the side effects from the medications and procedures, stress and possibility of failure I was about to endure once again. I was searching for a treatment that could decrease the discomforts of IVF and increase the rate of success.
Jennifer’s assessment was very thorough. I appreciated her knowledge of IVF and how she tailored the treatments based on how I was feeling and the stage of the cycle. As time went on, my general sense of well being improved and the side effects of IVF were much more manageable when paired with the TCM treatments Jennifer provided. Her confident, reassuring bed side manner was also impressive.
Lucky for us, we now have a son and our second IVF cycle was successful with the aid of TCM. However, I feel strongly that even if our attempts at pregnancy were not successful, Jen’s care would have made the process more comfortable and much less stressful overall.
Fertility with IVF
I can't recommend Jennifer Moss highly enough. I first contacted Jennifer when my husband and I were about to undergo our first IVF cycle after nearly three years of trying to conceive.
Jennifer was gentle and kind. She explained the benefits of acupuncture and more importantly than anything else, she listened. She always went the extra mile - rearranging her schedule on numerous occasions to fit in treatments around before and after our embryo transfer - and that meant so much at a time when our stress levels were sky high.
When I miscarried my first IVF pregnancy Jennifer was wonderfully supportive. This was the time when I really felt the acupuncture came into its own. In a world where I felt frighteningly out of control, my appointments with Jennifer allowed me some peaceful time -time where the endless tirade of appointments, procedures, injections and meds were put aside, and I had a moment to focus inward. Somehow (and I'll leave Jennifer to explain how!) I always came away feeling rested, recharged and more able to cope with whatever came next.
Now we are the very proud, very lucky, parents of a beautiful baby boy, and I have no doubt that in many, many ways Jennifer played a part in his coming.
Infertility is a journey, and Jennifer was on our journey with us every step of the way - we can't imagine a better travel companion......
I started seeing Jennifer Moss a few months before my first planned IUI and I can confidently "blame" Jennifer for its success and for the fact I now have a gorgeous little creature attached to my breast day and night!
Jennifer is a professional, kind, attentive very supportive and a very gifted practitioner. I saw Jennifer through out my pregnancy and I feel it's one of the best things I could have done for my self!
I highly and gladly recommend Jennifer to anyone.
Asthma / Migraines / Stress
"I came to Jennifer Moss with lots of questions. She helped me to understand about acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. She put me at ease and we began to talk about why I came to her. I wanted to lose weight, lessen my asthma, reduce my migraine headaches, and try to come more with daily stress.
So far, in my few months of treatments, I have lost weight, my asthma is under control, my migraines are gone, and my stress level is considerably reduced.
I can't recommend Jennifer Moss highly enough. She is a very talented, kind, empathetic person who is eager to listen and help. I look forward to my visits."
“Working with Jennifer was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Diagnosed with fibroid tumors, and unhappy with the options presented by a surgeon, I decided to seek alternative treatment. Working with Jennifer over an eight month period, my tumors shrank to the point where my doctor could not detect them anymore and all discomfort disappeared. Jennifer also educated me on and helped me work through several other health concerns I had. Not only was Jennifer professional, competent, compassionate and caring, she always created a safe and soothing environment during treatment. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone.”
Irregular Menses / Women's Health
“Before I started seeing Jennifer Moss, I had many problems with menstruation. I had very painful and irregular periods, with terrible PMS. I never knew when my period was coming--it would start and stop at whim, sometimes disappearing for five months, sometimes striking three times in one month, each time bringing with it a host of physical and emotional symptoms that interfered with my ability to function personally and professionally. A doctor diagnosed me with polycystic ovarian syndrome and stated that the only treatment was a regime of medication and hormonal therapy that would have significant side effects.
After a thorough assessment, Jen was able to come up with a treatment for my menstrual symptoms--as well as my general well-being--that was effective and without side effects. Within the first two months, my periods became almost 100% regular--on a monthly cycle for the first time in my entire life. Over the last year, with regular treatments and chinese herbs, my cramps and pms became more manageable, as well.
Jen is a remarkably kind, generous, and creative practitioner. She has a wonderful bedside manner--I always feel comfortable and cared for in her presence. Her passion for helping people and sharing the wisdom of Chinese Medicine is tangible. She stays concerned and present with how I am doing, adjusting treatments to my current needs. She educates me on how to care for myself, helping me feel like a partner in my own wellness. I recommend Jen Moss very highly!"
Tendonitis / Repetitive Stress
"Jennifer Moss is an exceptionally qualified acupuncturist who has far exceeded my expectations. Her knowledge of traditional and nontraditional forms of Acupuncture, Reiki, and Chinese Herbal Medicine is astounding. She also has a firm grasp of Western medicine and how to combine it with her treatments.
From our first sesssion I began to see immediate results from her work. But what has impressed me most is her willingness to take the extra steps to ensure that she is addressing my problems (tendonitis and repititve stress injury in wrist, forearm, shoulder, elbow) in the most appropriate way. She is also kind, friendly, flexible, and professional, and I would highly recommend her to anybody."
TMJ / Facial Pain
"Acupuncture with Jennifer Moss was absolutely the best bodywork I've ever had. After just one session to treat the increasing pain of my TMJ, I walked--no, floated!--out of Jen's office feeling completely transformed. As a healer, she is intuitive, compassionate, and intelligent. How reassuring to know I'm in such good hands!"
Back Pain, Depression/Anxiety,
"I didn’t think there would be a day when my back would stop hurting, then I discovered acupuncture and Jen Moss! Jen’s professional, welcoming demeanor, her ability to describe complicated things uncomplicated and her insight into chronic pain and healing are first rate! She has also been very helpful in alleviating menstrual pain and ease bouts with depression and anxiety.
What a wonderful addition to my life! I’ve never looked forward to a medical appointment more! I HIGHLY recommend Jen Moss to everyone!!"
