When I first went to DeJongh Acupuncture Clinic, I believed in the effectiveness of acupuncture from previous treatments I had received in other cities. I have found that the effectiveness of the treatment depends greatly on the skill of the practitioner. I was not disappointed at DeJongh. Ivelisse has a connection with the health of her patients like nothing I have ever seen before. She feels the weakness in your health and prepares a specialized plan of treatment to aide in your overall health while focusing on the conditions that initially brought you to her. In addition to many health problems that have arisen over the years, Ivelisse assisted me with fertility treatments. Her acuity with fertility is unequalled and she does everything within her power to relieve imbalances within the body to provide the best environment possible for conception. She goes on to provide support the body needs during pregnancy so the mother and baby are healthy. I strongly recommend that you seek her assistance with fertility, both men and women, because she tips the scales in your favor making success much more attainable.

As many couples, we went through an IVF with a positive outcome, right now I am 13 weeks old and I cannot wait to meet those two little babies. The experience for infertility patients will be personal and unique; particularly in my case, one of the doctors recommended me visiting an acupuncturist, so that, I started going to acupuncture session with Ivelisse DeJongh.
I thank GOD for the day I came in to Ivelisse’s Office, that day for the first time one person could explained me the meaning of my blood test results; for the first time somebody told me that we can improve the condition no just with this tiny needles over your body, but also with a customize treatment adjusted to your condition. This is not about a relaxation program this is about someone who teach you how to improve your health to reach this beautiful dream. I am 38 years old; I was diagnosed with a low ovarian reserve and a FSH of 12 (above the range) and a 20% chance of a success treatment. Once she had the results, she asked me for a 3 months to apply the treatment and I did it, at the end I have just one IVF cycle, my FSH dropped to normal level and I have 3 embryos frozen.
We are told by occidental doctors that acupuncture is not a guarantee that your IVF cycle will work, but believe me, acupuncture improve your chances of success, for example, improve uterine blood flow, which may create a more hospitable environment for implantation. It happened to me, acupuncture was a key in my recovering from my fibroids surgery.
I have to tell you, I am beyond impressed with my experience at Ivelisse’s office. Since my first contact, I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind she was. Ivelisse always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue.
I am grateful to have found Dr. DeJongh

After a couple of years trying to get pregnant, a friend suggested me to try acupuncture for fertility. I went to the Acupuncture Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine website and luckily found DeJongh Acupuncture Clinic.At the beginning I didn't know what to expect, but after the first appointment I knew I was at the right place. I really like Ivelisse's knowledge and experience, holistic approach and in-depth analysis to understand and solve my particular medical conditions that have prevented me to get pregnant. I have learned how my thyroid and liver work and what foods and habits can help me to heal and achieve my dream.

“I stared seeing Dr. DeJongh shortly before my IVF cycle. I was referred to her by Dr. Hernandez-Rey of Conceptions Florida. I can't express how wonderful my experience was with her. She was on top of my cycle information, and always communicated with me to see how I was feeling throughout my cycle. She always took her time and never rushed. Her intuition and knowledge on how to support my fertility efforts was always evident. The acupuncture helped me tremendously with side effects from the fertility medication, and also calmed my mind, so I consider the benefits were both for my mind and body. Her treatment also relaxed me right before my embryo transfer and I can happily say I'm a 43 year old mother-to-be who is 6 months pregnant with my first child. If you are going through IVF I highly recommend Dr. DeJongh to support you during your IVF treatment and beyond.”
“I had been trying modern medicine for 3 years to cure food allergies and severe joint pain. I sought out many different specialists, from different parts of the world (some rated the best in their region) who graduated from the best schools, and their only conclusion was to prescribe me high dosages of painkillers. Not one could tell me what the root of the problem was. I began taking on average two 200 mg pills of Advil Extra Strength every day just to start my day. I am still in my 20's, and not willing to take painkillers for the rest of my life. I was desperate for a solution. When I met Dr. Ivelisse, she told me exactly what the problem was within the first few minutes, and gave me a very detailed, in-depth, explanation. After our first appointment, my pain was reduced dramatically, my mood completely changed and I had the ability to do things I hadn't done in months, things as simple as carrying two grocery bags in one hand. Dr. Ivelisse is extremely attentive and knowledgable, and truly puts her all into helping her patients. She will go the extra mile and do her absolute best to care for her patients. I have been recommending Dr. Ivelisse to everyone I know, with full confidence. I am proud to say that after that first appointment 8 months ago, I have not taken even 1 mg of Advil (and not planning on it).”
“DeJongh Acupuncture changed my life!
I suffer from severe endometriosis and I struggled to get pregnant for over seven years...
I started acupuncture treatments with Dr. Ivelisse about two and a half years ago and they made me feel better. In particular they helped me with my anxiety, shortness of breath, irregular cycles... After just a few months I was more calm and in control of myself, I was able to exercise (to run) and I started having regular cycles!
DeJongh Acupuncture helped change my lifestyle for a healthier one without sacrifice! And the result is a healthy two month old baby boy!!
I would definitely recommend DeJongh Acupuncture to friends as I actually already did! Dr. Ivelisse is very professional and knowledgeable, she is caring and enthusiastic of her patients and her work. Thank you DeJongh Acupuncture!”

“For the past 4 years I have been in the care of Ivelisse's acupuncture services--not only is she a wonderful human being, such a positive light and so personable, but after a session with her you feel like a brand new person (mind and body). She knows where to target and apply her expertise, it really is a wonderful experience. Before coming to her, I was tentative about the idea of acupuncture; now, I think its a great way of healing your body and being in tune with how your emotions affect your muscles and your overall well-being. I trust Ivelisse and look forward to each session with her.”

“Mi eposo y yo deseamos inmensamente quedar embarazados, a nuestros 46 anos, por lo que decidimos recurrir a la acupuntura y medicina china como soporte a los tratamientos de fertilidad de la medicina tradicional. A mi edad, la medicina tradicional considera que la baja reserva ovarica imposibilita el embarazo, tanto natural como asistido. Con mucho profesionalismo Ivelisse estudio nuestra caso, revisando nuestra historia medica y analizando examenes de laboratorios que efectuamos. Su evaluacion nos permitio descubrir los desbalances que teniamos, desarreglos comunes tales como digestivos, biliares; pero que definitivamente tenian influencia sobre nuestro equilibrio hormonal. Ivelisse diseno un plan personalizado, combinando cambios sencillos en nuestra alimentacion, suplementos y hierbas; asi como las sesiones de acupuntura focalizadas en recuperar la energia natural, bajar la ansiedad que produce el deseo del embarazo, y fortalecer el correcto funcionamiento de nuestros sistemas.
“Mi respuesta a los tratamientos de estimulacion ovarica se incremento a partir del segundo mes de tratamiento con Ivelisse, y comprobamos que continuo mejorando cada mes, por lo que seguimos preparandonos para realizar un IVF proximamente.
Recomiendo 110% el acompanamiento y la preparacion que Ivelisse puede realizar con Acupuntura y medicina china, antes de iniciar un tratamiento de Fertilidad. Esta es una manera muy eficaz de elevar las probabilidades de exito, en la busqueda del embarazo deseado.”
“I was undergoing IVF treatment for the 3rd time back in 2013 and was recommended to consider acupuncture by a friend (who also had gone through IVF) and she highly recommended Ivelisse. I was a little apprehensive at first at the thought of having needles pierced on my body and I wasn’t sure if spending the additional money out of pocket would be worth it. However, I was willing to do whatever it took to help figure out how to cope and help myself as I went through the stress of my fertility issues. When I met Ivelisse – she had a very calm demeanor about her. She was very professional and warm. She listened to my issues and helped figure out the right treatment plan – she was always very thorough and provided a calming a peaceful environment. I did several treatments over the course of the year and the biggest benefits for me were significantly less stress and I believe my treatments with her helped to create a good environment for when I started my 4th IVF treatment in beginning of 2014. I would highly recommend DeJongh Acupuncture!”
Charissa, Miami 11/4/16
Dear Dr. DeJongh
Since I started using Acupuncture, my lower back pain has improved significantly
While before Acupuncture the pain was constant and deep, after my very first treatment I started seeing and feeling the results. After my second and my third session the pain felt a lot more light and at times is not there at all. When I thought the surgery was my only option, I couldn't be happier and more relieved knowing that with your help, there is hope for a painless life
Thank you for your knowledge and dedication

I started going to Ivelisse after three years of trying to get pregnant. I'm 35 and have very low ovarian reserve. I had tried a few IUIs and was gearing up for IVF. A few girls at my office recommended this clinic and I'm glad I took their advice. Five months later, I'm pregnant with twins and everything is going smoothly. I'm continuing to see Ivelisse to help me through the pregnancy. I can't say enough about her caring nature and determination to help all her patients succeed. The clinic is easy to get to (near downtown) and the facilities are soothing. I look forward to my visits and always feel happy and relaxed when I leave. I definitely recommend!
I am very satisfied with my experience at DAC, I was searching for an acupuncturist with a true understanding of eastern medicine at a reasonable cost when I found Dejongh Acupunture. Located in 'the roads" it is easily accessible from brickell, coral gables, and coconut grove! I have now been a client for over a year and see Ivelisse regularly. She treats me depending on my evolving symptoms and now that I am pregnant has been a lifesaver for getting me through the pregnancy blues, as well as morning sickness, discomfort, and tiredness. Her packages of 8 sessions make for a reasonable price per visit and insure that I take care of myself regularly. Her treatments are never rushed and always customized to the way I am currently feeling or whatever am experiencing. I will continue to receive acupuncture after the baby is born for my overall wellbeing and continued health. Thanks DAC!
Ivelisse is amazing! She is not only professional and knowledgeable, but she is very caring. She is very invested in you as a person, she doesn't treat you like just another patient. I've seen Ivelisse for the past year and a half. Mostly for infertility, however, she did treat other ailments that popped up from time to time. I am now happily expecting twins! I am so thankful to Ivelisse for her devotion to my success with conceiving my babies and to my overall well being. I can't speak highly enough about her. I would definitely recommend DeJongh Acupuncture to anyone.
I've been going to Ivelisse for almost 5 months, I think. I've suffered from chronic headaches that started about three years ago. The only way they will go away was by going to the hospital and getting injections. Which always made me fall asleep. In the course of all those years I had been given approximately about 10 to 15 different types of medications, including excedrin, which in the long run stopped working. I knew it wouldn't go away and that it was serious when I was given a very powerful drug, that did not work either. Also I have to add that I had lost my mother recently and thought I was dealing with it just fine. Going to a psychiatrist, getting medications, etc. Oh and I have ADD too.
After two sessions with Ivelisse, I had no more headaches and I notice that in one of the sessions I felt very sad. She pointed out that it was just my way of starting to deal with the fact that my mom was not here. Since I really didn't deal with it, I was just storing every feeling of that pain and leaving it untouched.
Today, I can say thanks to Ivelisse, I'm the person I used to be before my mom passed away and very thankful for her help. No more headaches and best of all I am working just fine without any ADD medication.

I had an accident with a car door. My right hand ring finger was smash by the door and it got swollen for two weeks but recuperated with time. Three years later I wake up with a stiff finger that continued to get worst as time passed by. It got so bad and painful that I could hardly move it. In a mater of a few sessions my finger improved dramatically and is now pain-free. But what surprised me the most about acupuncture is that it also cured a digestion condition I had which was not the reason I went to see Dr. Dejongh in the first place. She diagnosed my digestion problem very accurately and I'm happy to say that with the treatments she gave me it has been cured.
Dr. Dejongh is a very professional-positive and friendly person in which I have deposited faith and confidence in her expertise of oriental medicine.
With gratitude and many thanks from the bottom of my heart!
"My name is Pedro Rivera and I have been using Ms. Dejongh for acupuncture and massage treatments for approximately 2 years. During this time I have had her help me with my back, stomach and feet problems. Sometimes I have visited her once and felt immediately better and for my lower back after 3 visits I was a new man. I had problems with my right foot, the doctors had told me I had a Spur and they wanted to operate. On some days I could barely walk when I got out of bed, she gave me two treatments, immediately after the first one I felt at least 50% better but after the second visit my foot has not hurt since(over 1 year ago). She is a caring professional that takes her time to listen to you first before she does or says anything. I recommend her if your in pain or have discomfort anywhere in your body, she will not let you down. I feel great. Thanks Ivelisse."
"Acupuncture has been helping me in different ways, I had some eating disorders,anxiety,depression, and low back pain. My low back pain was eliminated in three sessions thanks to Dr. DeJongh. For the past year all my symptoms have been cleared. Alternative medicine has changed my life and health thanks to Dr. DeJongh, Im the person who I was back then. Thanks you Ivelisse."
"After going through a thorough consultation with Dr. DeJongh, she took the time and care to inform me of how she could use accupuncture treatments to address my concerns. After I received my first cosmetic accupuncture treatment from Ivelisse, I could immediately see a difference in my facial appearance. My skin radiated and my fine lines were less noticeable. She also provided a treatment to my husband, who suffers from chronic body pain due to a car accident. Ivelisse's accupuncture treatment helped to reduce his pain. Thank you so much Dr. DeJongh."

"Un dolor es timbre de alarma. Una enfermedad es mal hábito de nutrición. Ssaber de un/a acupunturista es tener méritos de curarse. DRA IVELISSE, al verme se encontró con la estampa de la HEREJIA (avejentado, asma, cataratas, mareos, incontinencia, impotencia sexual,) debido al LIPITOR. Me comprometi a obedecer su tratamiento. La DRA IVELISSE reflotaria a mi salud en 8 terapias. Rejuveneci 3 años y vencere a la impotencia sexual con 72 años."
"Ivelisse is my Acupuncturist! It sounds simple enough but what she’s doing for me is not, she’s treating me for a severe depression. Through the treatment Ivelisse has been incredibly sensitive to my condition. She has taken the time to explain to me the acupuncture procedure and what to expect from it. My days have gotten better because of her knowledge of Chinese medicine. This is a slow but sure treatment that is already helping me manage my condition with more ease. I had experience days of dramatic positive change thanks to her. Depression is a very lonely condition and I am fortunate not to be fighting it alone because I have her by my side. Ivelisse has the wonderful balance of professionalism, knowledge and compassion. The exact qualities you wish to finding in a care practitioner, with Ivelisse it’s not a wish but a reality."
"As long as I can remember, I have suffered from regular headaches. Ever since I had my two year old son, the headaches turned into migraines that completely debilitated me. I went the traditional route to try to diagnose and cure my migraines that were becoming much more frequent (every other day). I saw a neurologist, who prescribed lots of medications that had horrible side effects and did not even give me complete relief.
I became extremely frustrated and felt hopeless. My mother, who frequently served as my emergency babysitter when the attacks occurred, urged me to try acupuncture. I must admit that I was very skeptical because I had tried so many things and nothing ever worked. I experimented with everything that anyone ever suggested (vinegar water, peppermint oil, red bull and four advils, hypnosis, etc, etc)… you name it, I tried it. I started the treatments and immediately noticed results. I have completed one month of treatment and have only had two migraines with no other headaches. I have not taken any medications since the day I started the acupuncture treatments. Also, my horrible stomach aches that were a result of the medications completely disappeared. I urge anyone with migraine headaches to try acupuncture at Miami Acupuncture Clinic. Dr. DeJongh is professional and very personable."
Upon concluding my treatments with Ivelisse I was pleasantly surprised. The dark acne scar on my face with scar tissue had receded, I was able to sleep thoroughly throughout the night, my PMS and headaches had dissolved, and finally, my menstrual cycle had become less bothersome – an issue I have suffered with since I was a teenager. I truly believe in the ability of each of our bodies to care for itself if given the opportunity. I have always been intrigued and curious about acupuncture treatments and overall effects. Upon discussing with Ivelisse my medical background, we were able to find the areas of my body that needed fine tuning in order to find the “balance” that would promote healing.
Ivelisse is extremely professional and delightful to see each visit. I was very excited about my first acupuncture appointment. I found my visits to be extremely helpful in alleviating my sinus problems that i was having and later sinus infections, muscle strain from my work in the airline industry. It has been terrific to reduce and stop the use of medication. For those that are skeptical or have some fear of needles I can assure you that Ivelisse will put you at ease and make your first appointment comfortable knowledgeable.
My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for sometime..it was him who went to DeJongh Acupuncture first and after his first visit he told me, 'you should get an appointment, the lady that does acupuncture is great and I think she can help us get pregnant'. Next thing I was lying in bed getting needles on my body!!! I had complete trust in Ivelisse, her personality inspired me tranquility and peace just after our first meeting... she listened to me and started getting me ready for a long awaited pregnancy. After a few visits to her clinic, on December 2012 we were expecting our first baby!!! Ivelisse not only helped us get pregnant, but also help me along the pregnancy with terrible lower back pain and coping with work related stress.
Ivelisse is a true professional! Even now after giving birth to a healthy baby boy, I continue to see her from time to time for anything a may need, specially with my back pains which come and go and they please... I would recommend DeJongh Acupuncture to everyone, acupuncture is the best!!. I consider her a friend and I will be forever thankful for all she has done for me.. and now for my sister...
I absolutely love Ivelisse at Dejongh Acupuncture Clinic. She is the first doctor in 3 years of suffering who has actually spent the time to listen and study my symptoms and pain. Before my acupuncture treatments I suffered from gastritis, irritable bowel, sleepless nights from frequent urge to urinate and I have amenorrhea due to cysts on my ovaries. She quickly diagnosed the situation and started to “resolve the issues in the middle.” I am only 2 months into my treatments and I have already seen two consecutive menstruations, no acid reflux or IBS, and I can finally sleep through the night. I have complete trust and faith in her and the treatments. I close my eyes and put my life in her hands with confidence and faith.
Ivelisse is a great practitioner. She combines a number of different therapies in treating a problem, and she gets results. She is very attentive to my concerns and seems to genuinely care about my health and well-being. I'm glad I found her and made the choice to see her routinely. It has made a great difference and I have seen considerable improvement.
A Couple of years ago I started not only looking my age, but feeling it. I wanted to boost my health as well as my appearance. I was not ready to go to the plastic surgeon. I did my research and decided to give acupuncture a try. I had my initial consultation with Ivellise DeJongh and knew I was in the right hands. She has taken ten years off my face and body. She has changed how I take care of myself thought natural medicine. She has an amazing personality and is so very caring. I lead a very hectic life style, but I always make time for my appointments with her. It is the best thing I have done for my health. I have recommended other friends to her and they are just as impressed by her as I am. Since I started my treatments, I have seldom gotten sick. Acupuncture is great, but what I like the best is Ivellisse's approach. She make it easy for me to be there.
When I first meet Ivelisse, I was being accessed by four different doctors for several different symptoms. . Her first and second consultation, treatment and application of acupuncture therapy reveled what diagnosis had yet to come back from my other doctors; that I was anemic and my chronic migraines had to do with vascular blood flow. I continue to receive treatments on a regular basis and my energy, stamina, and headache pain have increasingly gotten better.
I was very skeptic at first, until a friend convinced me to try at least one acupuncture session with Ivelisse DeJongh. I'm 45 years-old and even though I'm pretty healthy and in decent shape, I have had problems with my sleep all my life. I tried conventional medicine, did a couple of sleeping studies, spent a lot of time going in and out of appointments with no real positive results. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea, which meant that I didn't qualify "by the current medical standards" to get the breathing machine at home. Not wanting to get pumped with sleeping pills and then drink a bunch of coffee in the morning to wear off their effect, I finally gave in and decided to visit the DeJongh Acupuncture Clinic. After a few sessions, I couldn't have dreamt of better results! Acupuncture has changed my life. Not only I'm sleeping much better and resting, but also Ivelisse is starting to work on a couple of other minor health concerns that I have. I'm so grateful for her treatments and for the good friend who recommended her to me. I'm a believer in acupuncture now!
I highly recommend Ivelisse DeJongh. She has done wonders to my face. I did not know about cosmetic acupuncture and was a little skeptical at first. But she transformed my dull, sagging, wrinkled face into a youthful, healthy looking one thru acupuncture combined with electric wave, ultrasound and cupping treatments. She just started on my neck recently and I can already see a difference. I get a lot of compliments about my skin since I've been with Ivelisse. Her treatments are painless and you will be pleased with the results.
For 14 years I had suffered migraines some lasting days even weeks. I had seen so many doctors and had so many tests run, but did not get any explanations on the causes, just given all types of medicines to take. One day, after suffering from the same migraine for two weeks, I got tired of taking medications that would relieve or ease my migraines. None of them took away the pain completely.
When I began to see Dr. DeJongh I was hopeful. I wanted to be able to function properly in my everyday life without having to settle with the migraines or pushing through the pain.
It has been 4 months and I'm happy to say that I feel great. Dr. DeJongh has helped me not only with my migraines but has also helped me being healthier in general.
I was referred to Ivelisse from a fellow flight attendant after a conversation about my chronic sinus problems. With in a couple months she had my sinus problems all cleared up. Now over a year latter, I not only have relief from my sinuses; but her holistic approach to health has helped me with intermittent lower back problems and overall stress relief. I am happy to not only call her a great acupuncturist and health care professional, but also now a good friend.
I have been seeing Ivelisse DeJongh since August of 2014. My husband and I started the IVF process and it had failed the first round. I then decided to add acupuncture 1-2 times per week in preparation for my next round. She took the time to really get to know me personally, my body, and my situation. Sure enough in round two, we got pregnant. I know it wasn't just coincidence. She's compassionate and caring and just really wants to educate you and give you all the tools and tips to help you feel your best. I wasn't sure I believed in acupuncture going into it, but after being treated by her for months, I realized I really have felt my best throughout the pregnancy. Anytime we addressed certain issues they really would get better after being treated. I felt more energized, my appetite seemed to be more under control, and I was sleeping better.I would definitely recommend Dr. DeJongh to anyone I know. She has been a key player in making sure I have a smooth comfortable pregnancy and for that I will be forever grateful!!!

I am thankful for everything Ivelisse has done for me, to get me on my path of healing. She is very kind, dedicated, compassionate, knowledgeable to her craft, and cares about the well being of every person who enters her establishment. She is very thorough during my visits and the therapy she provides are always on point. The greatest benefits I have experienced since getting Acupuncture, cupping, and other holistic therapy is the reduction of pain, stress, and swelling. After every session I feel relieved and relaxed. I would recommend her 100%. I know she would help you just like she has helped me.
Before I started my facial treatments with Ivelisse, my face was looking dull with many fines lines. It was also starting to look bony and tired. I read about Mesotherapy that Ivelisse was providing in her clinic and it was the best thing I have done for my face!!!
With continuous facials (2 times a month for 3-4 months in the beginning) my face started to change with a new glow. The fines lines also started to diminish and my face started to look firm and tight! I have been recommending Ivelisse to all my friends because her rejuvenation facials are the best!!! She only uses paraben, parfum, and sulfate free products!!!!
I think acupuncture is great for fertility issues by itself or as a complement of a "traditional" medical treatment. Conception is affected for so many variables that are not being looked at by conventional medicine and acupuncture takes everything into consideration. It is really frustrating to be doing everything "by the book" and not be able to conceive, so I'd love more women to be aware of this alternative to increase their chances of getting pregnant.
I was referred to Dr. DeJongh by my chiropractor. I highly recommend her because she is professional, cordial and understood my individual situation. I was able to let go of some stress, sleep better an accomplish my goal which was to become pregnant! 🙂
I was somewhat uneasy about trying acupuncture because I never had acupuncture done anywhere on my body before, but I discovered that it doesn't hurt as much as I anticipated, other than a little discomfort. My complexion seems to be more even and my face felt more plump and small lines not as visible. The value of a session equals the cost of a good facial treatment, but the results are much more longer lasting. I like Dr. DeJongh’s open and clear explanation as to what type of treatment is necessary. I highly recommend her.
