Ana-Med Acupuncture Auckland

 
 
Restoring balance with physical and emotional, health and well-being during the various stages of life.
 
Lee-Ana provides one-to-one treatments using gentle needle techniques. She has been practicing in Auckland for over 10 years focusing on acupuncture for Pregnancy, Womens Health and Fertility/Infertility. People have also sought treatment from Lee-Ana for a wide range of conditions including emotional-anxiety problems, digestive and respiratory conditions, injuries and pain management, mens issues and paediatrics.
With the individual in mind, Lee-Ana draws from ancient whole system practices and merges it with the evidence base to provide treatments using appropriate modalities (acupuncture, acupressure, bodywork, moxibustion, cupping, bodywork etc). She also offers the option of providing detailed dietary and lifestyle therapy along with supplementation to help support treatments where required.

Acupuncture has minimal adverse events in research so is thought to be safe in the hands of well trained practitioners (MacDonald & Janz, 2017) and tends to have high levels of patient satisfaction (ASH, 2016, Betts, 2017).

During pregnancy people often seek acupuncture as a drug free alternative to help with things like morning sickness, pain, induction, breech, anxiety, pre and post natal depression, fatigue, insomnia etc as well as pre-birth acupuncture from 34-36 weeks.

 

Note: It is advisable not to have caffeine, eat a big meal or be too hungry within an hour either side of treatment. If you are hungry have a small snack within that time. Also refrain from any intoxicants around treatments.

For ACC acupuncture treatments obtain your ACC45 or claim number from your doctor, physiotherapist or other ACC treatment provider and bring it to your initial consult. Our acupuncturists do not generate ACC claim numbers.
