Dr. Jes is specially trained in using Traditional Chinese Medicine to improve fertility in both women and men by reducing stress levels, increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs, and balancing the endocrine system.

For women, this increase in the blood flow to the uterus and ovaries means nourishing the eggs and uterine lining. For men, treatments will also help to improve the quality and quantity of the sperm. Dr. Jes works with couples trying to conceive naturally as well as those using Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) treatments.

She also specializes in Women’s Health, treating issues such as Menopause, Hormonal Imbalances, Pregnancy and Postpartum, PCOS, and Endometriosis.
