“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.

“I was suffering from debilitating migraines…”

Following a snowboarding accident I started to suffer from severe migraines and neck pain. At times the neck was hurting so much, it was keeping me awake at night. I was suffering from debilitating migraines at least twice a month.

In the past 2 years I saw a sports and musculoskeletal medicine specialist and 3 different physiotherapists. These treatments didn’t leave a mark on my almost daily neck pain and headaches.

I love exercise. I enjoy swimming, pilates, running, gym and box-aerobics. But the pain often used to get worse during and after exercise.

I was so frustrated by lack of any progress, when one of my colleagues recommended that I should see Vitalis.

I’m enjoying life so much more now. I said good-bye to all the painkillers. After suffering for such a long time, it feels so great to be pain free! I can concentrate at work again, I enjoy my exercise so much more, and overall I’m much more balanced and happy.

“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 skillful 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 practiced 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.
