We Believe…

“We believe in your body’s innate ability to heal. In practice, not perfection. In connective, honest, collaborative communication and care. In laughter as a powerful form medicine. We are a practice dedicated to women, and we believe in you.”

Merritt Jones, LAc, MS, CNC
Hi there! I’m Merritt Jones, the founder of Natural Harmony Reproductive Health & Jones Family Acupuncture – integrative acupuncture practices dedicated to individuals and families seeking to create optimal health and wellness, naturally.

This practice was born out of my own need for better reproductive healthcare options. As a healthcare provider living with Stage 4 endometriosis, I know all to well the frustrations that can come with feeling like you’ve run out of options and just feel stuck. You’re not alone, and you deserve to find the support you need to thrive.

I believe both Eastern and Western medicine can offer incredible tools to aid in optimal reproductive health care. My goal is to provide you the best options to fit your needs, help you navigate the sometimes confusing terrain of reproductive health, and provide you with practical tools that you can apply to your daily routine to start improving your health today. It is my hope that you leave our office feeling empowered to take control of your reproductive health and wellness.
