Forrest Hill Acupuncture

Our experienced, NZ registered acupuncturists offer Traditional Acupuncture for the specialised treatment of many health conditions. They also focus on keeping you well and balanced once you get there! Acupuncture is one branch of Traditional Oriental Medicine. The other branches include Herbal Medicine, Medical Massage & Manipulation (Tuina), Guasha & Cupping, Qi Gong/Tai Chi & Nutrition. Used together, these therapies are the basis of a very sound and effective natural medicine system – one that has been used for thousands of years in various countries throughout Asia. Patients often report a general sense of wellbeing after treatment. This is no surprise given that scientific research has shown Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine are able to:
  • Improve Immunity
  • Improve Performance
  • Improve Mood
  • Relieve stress
For Musculo-skeletal conditions (sprains / strains, contusions) Acupuncture is often a great treatment of choice as it has been shown to effectively:
  • Relieve pain
  • Relieve inflammation
  • Reduce muscle spasm and tension
  • Enhance and optimise recovery from injuries
Our Physiotherapists at BodyZone work alongside our Acupuncturists. If clinically indicated by sound clinical reasoning, we are able to refer patients with musculo-skeletal injuries for Acupuncture assessment / treatment
