About Elaine (left in photo)

I have been involved in the health profession for the past 25 years. I trained initially as a Registered Nurse (NZ), then as a Midwife (UK) and more recently as an Acupuncturist (NZ and Nanjing China).

The clinic operates 5 days per week with appointment times of 1 ½ hours for the first appointment and approximately 45 minutes-1hour for each additional appointment. I am currently taking appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays within school hours. Our clinic is very relaxing, easy to find with free parking and easy access for disabilities.

I have an interest in maintaining wellness with extensive knowledge in health, nutrition and lifestyle management which can help improve your wellbeing. I incorporate Acupuncture, Guasha, Moxa, Cupping, Acupressure, Electrotherapy, nutrition and Bach flower Remedies into the treatment plan.

I often work closely with your GP, Specialist, Midwife and other health practitioners to achieve the best outcomes.
I am a member of NZASA (New Zealand Acupuncture Standards Association) and NZIA (New Zealand Institute of Acupuncture) which assures you that strict clinical guidelines are adhered to and disposable needles are used to maintain an optimum level of hygiene. I also undergo regular education keeping up to date to improve my practice.

About Nicky (right in photo)

I have been interested in people’s health for as long as I can remember. Its a passion and it begun as a registered nurse in New York City in the nineties. I worked a lot with AIDS patients at the height of the HIV epidemic. On returning home I discovered an interest in rehabilitation and occupational health nursing. I loved seeing people recover and being a part of that journey is a true honour. It wasn’t until family health issues surfaced that I hung up my nursing uniform in pursuit of complementary solutions.

What I found was neuro linguistic Kinesiology and Chinese medicine, such fantastic modalities that I only wished I knew of them a lot earlier. I am pleased to have integrated this into a practice framework that draws on both western science and eastern philosophy. Traditional Chinese medicine includes acupuncture alongside the use of herbs, guasha, cupping and moxibustion. I use various branches of kinesiology; touch for health, neuro-linguistic kinesiology, bio-kinesiology, Nambudripad’s allergy elimination techniques (NAET) and SIPS.  My training includes post graduate diplomas in health sciences in Acupuncture (Auckland University of technology) and Case Management (University of Auckland). I am an ACC approved acupuncturist and belong to several professional organisations.

My goal is to help you to meet your goal, whatever that may be. I use a variety of methods to stimulate your body’s own healing mechanisms.  I prefer to think of it as ‘balancing the body’ rather than giving ‘treatment’.  I do not diagnose medical conditions and I recommend consulting your general practitioner or specialist to guide you with this. These techniques are both complementary alongside regular western medicine and helpful to overcome side effects of conventional treatments.
