Why choose The Acupuncturist ?

If you have never had acupuncture before, please make sure you come to a professional acupuncturist first. It surprises people to learn that in New Zealand, acupuncture is not yet a registered profession. This means that anyone can call themselves an acupuncturist, whether they have undertaken only a weekend training course or no training at all! The Acupuncturist is a professional acupuncturist with four years of training in New Zealand.

Rest assured that your experience of having acupuncture with The Acupuncturist will be painless, gentle and effective.

Professional acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient part of traditional Chinese medicine that has stood the test of time and successfully crossed cultural boundaries. This is for a very good reason – it works!

Professional acupuncture can help with a wide range of conditions, which Acupuncture NZ lists on its website. You can find out more with this link.

Where injuries have been sustained accidentally (at work, in the home, garden or elsewhere, or during sports or leisure activities), ACC might cover part of the cost of treatment. Once a claim has been approved by ACC, no referral is needed for you to have treatment from The Acupuncturist.

The Acupuncturist is the home of gentle, effective treatment with or without needles. It's where people come to be treated with respect and to take back control of their own health. Whether it's a painful condition or injury that is preventing you from doing what you want, or a collection of unpleasant signs and symptoms, or even post-surgical pain or discomfort, you could soon be feeling more like your old self after treatment from The Acupuncturist. It's worth remembering that you don't have to be ill to get better.
