About Us

Our Work

Welcome to The
Acupuncture Sanctuary

I come from a family of scientists, in my Whakapapa there are geneticists, biologists, embryologists, gynaecologists, physicists, chemists and pharmacists. Albeit I took the path of getting back to Natural Medicine. When you come into clinic, I understand that you may (or altogether not) be working with your GP or other specialists so I try to be the bridge between western medicine and the ancient classical world of Chinese medicine. Unlike other traditional healing systems innate to all parts of the world, Chinese medicine fortunately recorded its knowledge in written texts and has living practitioners that continue to carry on its unbroken lineages. Therefore, it is accessible and tangible.

What we actually do at the Acupuncture Sanctuary?

When you come into clinic, I’d love to hear about what you’d like help addressing. I will listen to your pulse and look at your tongue. I will also be happy to go through your latest blood test results, scans and reports and discuss any questions you may have about these. Then the work begins on the table. We will listen to your pulses again, use palpation, to get a feel of what is happening with your body, and then we will use, Acupuncture, Bodywork, Moxibustion, Cupping, or Gua Sha to assist you in feeling unstuck, fluid and connected to yourself. At the end we may send you home with herbal medicines or supplements.

Having travelled growing up I speak fluent English 🇬🇧, Polish 🇵🇱 (Wasza akupunkturzystka mówi po polsku) and French 🇫🇷 (Votre acupunctrice parle aussi le français) and would be happy to consult with you in any of these languages. 我可以说中国话一点点🇨🇳.
