“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.

Acupuncture back pain
“I haven’t been able to find anyone of Vitalis’ standard” Jeremy Stanford, Melbourne, Australia

I was in Auckland for Christmas last year, on holiday from Australia, and I put my back out so badly I could hardly get off the bed. It was the worst back pain I’d ever experienced. I picked Vitalis out of the phone book and thankfully he was open between Christmas and new year. He promises that you will feel an improvement after the first treatment, and he lived up to that promise in spades. I was astounded how quickly he was able to relieve the back pain and put me on the path to recovery. With a combination of acupuncture and manipulation, after just two sessions I was feeling 70% back to normal. If I didn’t have to return to Australia, I’m sure he’d have got me back to 100% with another session.

I get regular osteopathic treatment in Melbourne but haven’t been able to find anyone of Vitalis’ standard over here. This year I returned to Auckland and prebooked to see him just to keep my back in order and for him to treat an Achilles problem I have. With acupuncture, he again worked wonders this time on my foot. I’d highly recommend Vitalis to anyone.

“A vast improvement in the pain and sciatica” Tonia Oliver, RM, RN

I’ve been seeing Vitalis for treatment of my back for the past two months. In that time I’ve seen a vast improvement in the pain and sciatica my back injury has caused. A great relief after five years.

I have found Vitalis to be very professional in my dealings with him and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone suffering from back injury or pain.
