“I was told by my GP that I would need surgery to sort out my slipped disc” Anke Starr, Devonport, Auckland
When I was told by my GP that I would need surgery to sort out my slipped disc, I was suffering from a debilitating pain, but was very keen to avoid the surgery. Luckily my doctors’ receptionist recommended me to see Vitalis.
After only a couple of treatments I felt much better. In fact, I was pain-free. I am very happy to say that thanks to Vitalis my health improved a lot and my back problems have resolved. Now I can go running again and I feel great!
Thank you Vitalis!
With kind regards, Anke Starr

“I never had such a fast response” Andrea Buisman, Auckland Hospital
I received acupuncture and manual therapy by Vitalis for pregnancy related symptoms I am truly amazed by the results. Without this help I would have been unable to continue my very dynamic and strenuous job as a nurse in a hospital.
Vitalis delivers a high standard of care and shows impeccable knowledge and skill. Over many years I received occasional physiotherapy and chiropractic for similar complaints but never had such a fast response. Vitalis, I wish you all the best and keep up your amazing work.

“In a short period of time, Vitalis had a more significant impact than all of the time I have spent over the years” Steve Scott, Managing Director, Auckland
Vitalis’ efficacy is unparalleled. I have received treatment for chronic issues related to posture. Vitalis has a range of knowledge and skills which are complementary making them highly and immediately effective. In a short period of time, Vitalis had a more significant impact than all of the time I have spent over the years with chiropractors, physios, traditional osteopaths etc. Vitalis has also brought me significant health improvements in terms of the managing the daily stresses of life as a busy Managing Director.

“Spine specialist in England told me I would require fusing of my lower spine and the continuing agony was making my life hell” Jill Ireland
Just before I came to this country two years ago, I saw a Spine Specialist in England, who kindly told me after him seeing my results from a MRI that I would require the fusing of my lower spine. This would put me out of action for sometime and would cause me quite considerable discomfort for sometime. He did add though that I was rather young to have this done and so I decided to try to put up with the agonising pain.
Since arriving in New Zealand, I have at time been at my wit’s end with the pain, which has resulted in me taking strong pain killers, which I am quite anti to do so. About two months ago things got really bad, where I was finding it very difficult even to walk a few metres and the continuing agony was making my life hell and that takes some doing, co’s I have a high pain threshold barrier and I just didn’t know what I was going to do apart from give in and have an operation.
I’ve always thought acupuncture was a load of rubbish, after my husband once had it done to stop him smoking, but to no avail, but I had got to a stage where I would give anything a go. Then I found Vitalis. I felt significant relief right after the first treatment. And now I feel no pain. The treatment that he has given me and continues to give me is absolutely marvelous, whereas life is now enjoyable again and I am sure I will be able to put off an operation for sometime to come, plus I have a wonderful nap each treatment time.
Vitalis has a lovely nature about himself and I would recommend his practice to anyone, he’s doing a marvelous job.
Thank you so much Vitalis.
Kind Regards Jill Ireland.
