“I visited every practitioner I could think of to fix the problem or even just ease the pain” Michelle

My lower back pain started after I crouched down to get something out of the car while holding my baby on my hip. I really noticed the injury when I returned to work after maternity leave and was sitting at my desk and on the bus for long periods of time. The longer I sat, the more it hurt.

Over the subsequent months, I visited every practitioner I could think of to fix the problem or even just ease the pain. This included three different osteopaths, a physiotherapist, a chiropractor and a different acupuncturist. I even had an x-ray to check there was no serious underlying issue. After seven months I had only experienced temporary relief (as in one day) but nothing permanent. Read more

“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.
