An Introduction to Acupuncture

"We Offer Gentle, Safe & Effective Pain Relief & Help With Many Disorders"

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese form of medicine which has been used in China for the needles last 3000 years. Its effectiveness is now accepted in various countries including New Zealand, especially as more people in our society dislike taking medical drugs.

Acupuncture aims at treating the person, along with the disease. This means that the acupuncturists look at the patient as a whole finds the cause of the illness and the imbalance in the body causing it.

The Benefits of Acupuncture

I have a reputation amongst my clients, both in New Zealand and in China for being Gentle. Many needle-phobic people comment on what pleasant experience acupuncture is and others have said that my acupuncture treatments are the least painful they have experienced.

Only high quality sterilized needles are used. Each needle is disposed after use and treatment will only be undertaken with fresh needles.

Skin penetration procedures are in line with the NZ Health Department Guidelines.
As a member of the NZ Register of Acupuncturists Inc. strict adherence to our Code of Ethics is ensured.

During my twenty years of clinical experience I have help many people with various disorders get back into the workforce and have improved the quality of life for many people.
