    Default Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture - Jan Jamieson?

    We are currently TTC and I was told a a friend to go see Jan Jamieson in Turner, Canberra.
    She does Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture an is apparently amazing if you are TTC. Has anyone here seen her before? How was it? What was she like? Can anyone share experiences of what to expect from Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture for fertility?? I've seen naturopaths since I was very young but I'd like a bit of a heads up of what to expect from the appointments and to head some good news stories!

    Hi Mama I have weekly acupuncture for fertility (have PCOS) and my acupuncturist has got my cycle going again and the last one was amazingly down to 64 days.
    Basically what happens is you go in and tell them what your week had been like cycle wise and any symptoms and she will look at my temp chart.
    Then you lie on the bed and she takes your pulse, puts pins in my feet, legs, hand, arms, tummy and head (depending what's required) and then she walks out And let's me rest for about 30 mins.
    She might sometimes burn some moxi on my belly again depending if needed.
    She will then take my pulse to see the pins have worked.
    And then all pins come out and she might put some leave in tacks in and tell me where to put them later in the week to continually stimulate my ovaries.
    She will give me some herbs which is a tea to take twice a day (depending on my symptoms and chart will determine the herbs).

    Feel free to ask any more info

    Default Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture - Jan Jamieson?

    Thanks so much for your response! Unfortunately I don't have a lot of info on my cycle to be giving her. It used to very erratic, and I would get AF maybe once very 2-4 months. Since I came off the pill it has become more regular and a get it weary month now, for a few it was bang on, same date every month which had me a bit excited, but the last cycle was about a week off, and this one has no sign of showing up on time either.
    Heres hoping she can help regulate it for me!
    When you say she would burn something - what do you mean by that?
    Also - can you tell me more about the tacks you had to keep in? When you say that they stimulate your ovaries, did you expect any side effects etc? Thanks!!

    Moxibustion:

    The tacks are like little thumb tacks they don't hurt at all are tiny.

    Only side effect Is ovulation and regulation of my cycle

    When I'm in acupuncture I actually fall asleep it's that relaxing!
