Women's Health and Fertility
Jessica Silver is a graduate of New England School of Acupuncture, where she earned both a Masters in Acupuncture and a Masters in Oriental Medicine.
I first went to see Jessica for help with a fertility issue: I was 37, wanted to get pregnant, and had ovarian cysts that were preventing ovulation and resisted treatment by Western approaches. I was immediately taken with Jessicas easygoing and friendly manner. From the first treatment, she was interested in getting to know me as a whole person. Her treatments were gentleI left them feeling relaxed and energized, not wiped out as I had after visiting some other TCM practitionersand she was always sensitive to how a given treatment felt while I was undergoing it. Jessica used a combination of acupuncture, heat lamp, moxibustion, and herbal formulas to help bring my body into balance; about six months after beginning treatment, I became pregnant naturally, without really even trying. Now I am the mom of a happy, healthy 14-month-old son. I attribute this success to Jessicas knowledge as a practitioner and to her incredible positive attitude, which helped give me faith in my bodys own knowledge and capability.
