Better Health Through Happipuncture

Here at Happipuncture, the health and wellbeing of our clients is always our top priority. We focus on using holistic, time-honoured traditional healthcare methods and modern scientific approaches to bring you physical and mental balance and good health.

Acupuncture Services in Auckland

Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine with thousands of years of history. It has been shown to help improve conditions ranging from psychological issues to muscular aches, pains, tension, and many more.

It is a minimally invasive method that focuses on stimulating nerve-rich areas of the body by activating specific points on the skin using ultra-fine needles. Acupuncturists believe that this can influence other body parts, such as tissues, organs and glands.

The Philosophy Of Acupuncture

This ancient practice is based on the idea that the human body is filled with a life-giving force called Qi. When Qi flows well, and to the right places, a person experiences good physical and mental health.

Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe that blockages or deficiencies in the flow of Qi lead to illness, injury and poor physical and mental health. Chinese medical treatments thus focus on achieving balance in the body’s natural forces, including Qi, to relieve pain by activating the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

What Can Acupuncture Help With?

There is clinical evidence to show that acupuncture is a worthwhile treatment for various physical and mental issues.

Practitioners may use acupuncture in Auckland to help with:

  • Allergies
  • Chronic Pain
  • Gastrointestinal Conditions
  • Hypertension
  • Insomnia and Sleep Issues
  • Menstrual Cramps and PMS
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Morning Sickness
  • Muscular Tension and Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Psychological Illnesses
  • Respiratory Conditions
  • Sprains
  • Sporting Injuries
  • Neurological Issues
  • Skin problems

How An Acupuncture Session Works

Your acupuncture session will begin with a detailed discussion of your symptoms and specific concerns. Because traditional Chinese medicine focuses on holistic treatment, your course of acupuncture will be tailored to your particular needs.

Some people report feeling relaxed after a session for acupuncture in Auckland, while others feel highly energised.

The acupuncturist will insert ultra-fine, metallic needles into the skin at specific acupuncture points. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the human body has hundreds of acupuncture points connected by pathways known as meridians. These pathways are what create the flow of Qi around the body. 

Your practitioner will then activate the needles through gentle and specific movements to stimulate the flow of Qi. 

While having needles inserted into your skin might sound scary, most people feel good and relaxed during an acupuncture session. However, to avoid the risk of infection, you must always use a qualified practitioner who knows how to insert the needles properly and uses sterilised disposable single-use needles.

That is why we recommend turning to an experienced, trained acupuncturist, like the team here at Happipuncture, for any acupuncture treatment.

A Safe, Holistic Approach To Health and Balance

When performed by a qualified professional, acupuncture has very few associated complications or side effects.

At the Happipuncture clinic, we use safe, both traditional and modern techniques to boost your body’s natural healing and help you feel better than ever. We offer a calm, relaxing environment where you can feel relaxed before your session begins.

Our experienced acupuncturists will take the time to work closely with you to provide treatment tailored to your body’s unique needs.

My shoulder and back pain have improved so much from seeing Caren. She is the best acupuncturist I have ever seen. She also knows a lot of knowledge of physiotherapy and PT. I travelled all the way from South Auckland to see her twice a week but it is worth! I feel so grateful to have met Caren and her wonderful team!

I had been to several physios, chiropractic, other acupunctures as I've been suffering by chronic pains from car accident. Everyone had told me that no solution for a condition I was dealing with. Finally my GP referred me to this Happipuncture clinic and they set me up with a practitioner (Caren) who specialized in my area of need. She is very thoughtful and provides professional medical service more than I expected. Honestly, I'm getting better now. I now go once a week to see Caren. I honestly couldn't imagine what would have happened if I had not found this clinic. She is wonderfully capable and kind and never gave up on me. I am so grateful for everything they've done for me!
