Gareth completed 4 years of study to gain a Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine which is New Zealand’s leading institute of its kind.
He was first introduced to the concepts of TCM through his involvement in Tai Chi and martial arts as they require an extensive understanding of human physiology. When learning martial arts, injuries are not uncommon, therefore acupuncture and tui-na (a Chinese form of massage) are often used to speed up recovery time.
Gareth has effectively treated a vast range of conditions and health concerns using traditional acupuncture as well as modern methods and tools such as heat lamps, electro acupuncture and fascial manipulation. These vary from treatment for injuries, musculoskeletal pain, headaches, digestive dysfunctions, mood disorders, and women’s health.View details »
