What Our Patients Say

I am grateful for these reviews from our patients

“I have sought Ada’s advice and treatment for various ailments and injuries, on numerous occasions over the past few years.  Ada is an excellent communicator and has a very professional approach. I have been impressed with her ongoing quest to grow her knowledge and her enthusiasm to build on her academic qualifications by attending both local and international courses. Attendance at these courses and reading widely, means she is up to date with developments in her field and abreast with innovative treatments. In my experience, Ada works in well with orthodox treatment and has never suggested I stop taking prescription medicines. Overall, I have enormous respect for Ada and have benefited from her treatment and care.  Apart from her clinical expertise she has a kind and nurturing approach, attributes that I consider very desirable in any health professional.”

Ada is a warm and caring practitioner whom I’ve enjoyed seeing for years for all kinds of ailments. Ada has met the particular mysteries of my body with compassion, grace and professionalism. Her attention to detail is her strength and her knowledge is vast. I always feel like she is thoroughly supporting me on my healing journey. She’s the gem of Titirangi!

“I found Ada after receiving a voucher through my running squad and benefited so much from my massage I am still returning a year later. I have a strong muscular build from swimming and running and find many therapists have too light a touch. Ada really understands her medicine and knows how to bring the best out of your body whether its regular aches and pains or treating an injury. I came to her on one occasion with a terrible cold and she worked acupuncture on my back which brought tremendous relief to my head, chest and sinuses. She has even got used to my inability to remember an appointment so texts me reminders. Ada has a very calm, soothing manner and the strongest fingers in the business and I would recommend her very highly to anyone.”

“I am a competitive elite runner and have had massages from many different therapists, but none have been anywhere near as good as Ada is. It is important that I reduce as much tension as possible from my muscles, so that I can make the most of my training sessions. Ada certainly made a huge difference to my recovery. I have sent several of my personal training clients to Ada and they all benefited from her therapy. Not only were they feeling better, less stressed, more mobile, but their flexibility and strength also increased as a result of Ada’s massage. Ada is acutely aware of each muscle and the changes it may undergo in a period of time, and knows how to treat it to restore it. I am also a huge fan of Ada’s acupuncture skills. I have always had tightness in my calf muscles and during my build-up for Rotorua Marathon last year the combination of travel, heavy training, and not enough stretching resulted in what I thought was major calf damage. However, after several massage and acupuncture treatments with Ada I was back racing and recorded a Personal Best on my way to 4th place at Rotorua.”

“I have used massage as a means of pro-actively managing migraines for about 10 or 15 years, and have also benefited immensely from a faster recovery from sporting injuries (generally back), by receiving monthly massages. My experience of therapists covers South Africa, England and New Zealand, and I was with another therapist prior to Ada. I have found Ada’s knowledge of injuries and recommendations of possible treatments extremely interesting and her manner very comforting. I recently experienced a lumbar injury and was talked into trying acupuncture as part of my treatment. Ada’s experience was reassuring and I found her delivery of the treatment, skilful and extremely competent. I felt relief from the pain within 24 hours, and the combination of the massage and acupuncture has most definitely had a tangible result on my recovery. I have also been really impressed with the level of customer service, whereby appointments have been made for after work hours or even on bank holidays to accommodate my schedule. I have referred a number of friends and colleagues to Ada, as well as given gift vouchers for treatments to people as gifts, and I am more than happy for this testimony to be used as a reference as the service provided by Ada, is of an exceptional standard, and worthy of commendation.”
