About Me‎ > ‎


I first saw Jessica in January 2013 after having suffered 3 miscarriages in the space of 18 months.   As an older mum running out of time, I was looking for anything that might help me ‘keep hold of’ a pregnancy Jessica was recommended by a friend of a friend.  I wasn’t sure what to expect from Acupuncture intervention but I was willing to try anything to help us to a successful pregnancy.
I was instantly set at ease by Jessica.  Her manner and the way she conducts her sessions made me feel comfortable and she gave me hope whilst not making any promises.  Her consultations were thorough, she went through all aspects of my health and lifestyle, not just those necessarily connected with conceiving.  Over the next few months I saw Jessica on a weekly or fortnightly basis.  I found the sessions relaxing and calming.  I have a very hectic work and home life and the Acupuncture helped me to escape these on a regular basis.  Within four months I was pregnant again. And very scared.  This was exactly what we wanted but we were very aware of everything that could go wrong.  Jessica was amazing and very supportive and my pregnancy progressed successfully.  In early new year, I gave birth to a healthy baby girl, something I was not sure I would ever achieve again.  We can’t thank Jessica enough for what she has helped enable us to achieve.  Our beautiful daughter will always be thanks, in part at least, to Jessica and her magic needles.

 Meeting Jess has been quite transformational for my life.  I was highly stressed when I met Jess and through the acupuncture and through talking during our sessions, I have learnt so much in order to control the stress and beat it to be at a consistently more acceptable level.  Recognising that sleep, rest and making myself more important are all critical to my wellbeing have made some significant changes to my daily life - being horizontal is my new stress buster too if I feel it's getting too much.  I would 100% recommend Jess - taking that time out for yourself is really important and what a great way to do it!

Jess is warm and reassuring and listens to me. She sees the link between the physical and emotional changes during the peri-menopause and treats the whole person, not just a set of symptoms. Improvement has been steady and I feel good that I am doing something positive for my health.

 I first visited Jessica a few months after an accident where I had damaged an upper arm muscle. My GP had only prescribed anti-inflammatories, which had hardly helped at all. Jessica gave me a great, holistic consultation and examination which resulted in acupuncture therapy for my arm and also for low energy levels following the accident which were revealed during the consultation.
The effect was terrific. Almost immediately my arm became more mobile, hurt much less and I was able to sleep on it without pain. After a few sessions my arm had almost completely recovered and now I have no problem at all.
I will definitely return when I next need treatment. I was so impressed by the thoughtful, analytical way Jessica treated a difficult problem.

JLC Acupuncture really helped me at a difficult time in my life.  I was experiencing fertility and other gynaecological problems and was getting desperate.  Jessica's calm and reassuring approach aided me through this difficult period where medical professionals could not help.  Her ability to listen and translate my problems into a tailored acupuncture programme benefited me immensely, and I am now 7 months pregnant.

After being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis I was desperate to find a treatment to alleviate my severe symptoms.
I was advised to try acupuncture by a health practitioner and Jessica Calvert came highly recommended as she was experienced and well qualified. 
When I first met Jessica she fully explained the treatment and was careful to record a full history of my health over the years. I was impressed by her professionalism and quietly confident manner. 
Jessica treated me over a six week period and each week my health improved.
At the end of the six weeks I felt as if I had my life back again. I felt well.
My energy levels were high and I had a great feeling of well-being
My pain had almost completely gone.
My condition has continued to improve.
I would certainly recommend treatment by Jessica as she is an excellent practitioner.

In Spring 2013 I was suffering from an arthritic condition in my right knee which was causing reduced mobility and was painful at times. By chance I saw a newspaper article on acupuncture which reported some success in dealing with this type of problem. I decided to give it a try, contacted Jessica and after a thorough consultation began a series of treatments, weekly at first and then after five or six sessions fortnightly. These were immediately beneficial and although there wasn't a dramatic overnight cure there was definite week by week progress with much improved mobility and flexibility. Painkillers which I had been taking regularly became a thing of the past.
 Jessica was extremely supportive and helpful at all times and when I mentioned that I experienced stiffness and pain in my lower back after driving she suggested trying acupuncture in that area as well. This had an immediate positive effect and I can now drive long distances and feel little or no pain.
 Acupuncture has certainly had a positive effect on my life and I would certainly recommend it without hesitation to anyone suffering from similar problems.
