Who we are

 
Lee-Ana Lowe

Acupuncture NZ registered member, ACC treatment provider
BHS - Ac, Dip Tuina-Qigong
 

I have always had an interest in medicine other than the conventional western regime but it wasn't until I was teaching English in South Korea (2001-2002) when I became ill (initially resorting to western medication which didn't work) that a friend took me to a traditional Korean medical doctor who treated me using acupuncture and Korean herbal medicine. Within one 10 day batch of herbs and two acupuncture sessions I was much better and this experience inspired me to enrol at the NZ School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (NZSATCM) in Wellington.

After graduating with the Diploma of Tuina-Qigong in 2005 I practiced Tuina part time along with my work in health stores and Simillimum Homeopathic Pharmacy which helped me gain a greater understanding of alternative western nutritional methods.
The 4 year Diploma in Acupuncture as well as 2 years of the Diploma in Chinese Herbs were completed by the end of 2007 when I became a member of the NZ Register of Acupuncturists (NZRA) and an ACC treatment provider.
Early 2008 I moved to Auckland and built up the practice which is now Ana-Med Acupuncture.
The Acupuncture diploma was transferred to a Bachelor of Health Science - Acupuncture through NZSATCM in Auckland 2012.

Having found my passion I now find myself redirecting my creativity and hands on approach into therapy processes for patients. The Chinese medicine and philosophies, meditation, and tai chi provide guidance in the clinic with my intention being centred on helping people to reach a healthier equilibrium on all levels.
