Client’s Testimonials

from  Trademe Reviews

I have known Adam for many years, he is the person I contact when I need treatment, he is very skilled in Acupuncture, highly recommended. Great healing with no medication. Thank you.

Adam was fantastic for my neck injury. He is highly professional, personable and knows what he is doing. If you have an injury, stiffness or pain you must try him.

Best man ever!!!! Pain gone within one minute!!! Highly recommend and will Definatly come back and taken a few business cards to hand out to friends and family. Thank you thank thankyou!!!

I wouldn’t normally review something but after a back injury at work with alot of discomfort and pain I thought it was worth letting others know that acupuncture works. Adam has done a great job in sorting the pain and getting me back up in running. Im not a massive needle fan so it took a lot for me to try this, I had nothing to worry about as the needles were not painful at all. So give it a go & this is well funded by Acc. Thanks Alan. Cheers Jamie.

Adam and Jessie have treated me on 3 occasions. I am really pleased with the results for each sports injury. My most recent neck injury had bothered me for 2 months before seeking treatment and now after 4 acupuncture and massage sessions with Adam it is almost 100%. Thank you very much. Definitely recommend Adam and Jessie. Very professional and knowledgeable.
