“significant reduction in the severity of my headaches and migraines” Merle

After suffering from debilitating headaches and neck and shoulder pain for many years, and having already tried various forms of therapy such as massage, physiotherapy, and chiropractic manipulations – all of which proved ineffective – I became frustrated with my inability to function adequately. At my wits’ end with the pain, I decided to put my skepticism about acupuncture to one side and scheduled an appointment with Dr Vitalis acupuncture in Auckland.

Prior to visiting Dr Vitalis, I took painkillers on a daily basis and struggled with stress from my demanding job, poor sleep, nausea, and chronic neck and shoulder pain, as well as exhausting headaches and migraines. I had resigned myself to an existence of using painkillers and a heated wheat bag numerous times a day just to alleviate the severe pain I felt every day.

After just four sessions of acupuncture with Vitalis, my sleeping patterns improved, and I noticed a significant reduction in the severity of my headaches and migraines. Although my neck and shoulder pain is still noticeable, it’s now more tolerable, and I’m better able to cope with daily life stressors, thanks to Vitalis. He’s put a semblance of normality back into my life. I highly and unequivocally recommend Vitalis’s acupuncture practice to anyone. I encourage people to put their skepticism about acupuncture to one side so that they can experience the numerous benefits of this therapy, particularly for headaches and migraines.

“I practised acupuncture for 7 years when I was a general practitioner” Dr. Laurie Jo Moore

I have consulted Vitalis for back and neck pain and believe that he is most skilful and effective clinician I have ever seen for musculoskeletal pain.

I have had a special interest in pain and I studied acupuncture myself in the US under a French Canadian anesthesiologist. I practised acupuncture for 7 years when I was a general practitioner and I also saw many chiropractors and osteopathic doctors over the course of years. Vitalis is, without question, able to accomplish a more effective response than anyone I have ever seen.

“Vitalis has done wonders for me in such a short time” Tony Manga

After many years of osteopathic, chiropractic and the occasional physiotherapy treatment for chronic neck pain I was desperate to find some relief. I have spent thousands of dollars for specialists, doctors and of course pain killers. Nothing against any of the above treatments, but no one could pin point the cause of pain or treat other symptoms that affected my chronic neck pain and migraine headaches. Read more
