"I have seen Rebecca for treatment of various health challenges and maintenance of wellbeing. Rebecca has a calm, professional and pragmatic approach to her work. She has a consultative style that puts one at ease. I appreciate her informative and gentle style."
Charmaine Thomson, Wellington
“I would thoroughly recommend Rebecca – she is an amazing acupuncturist: she has a great ability to really listen to you, and then her treatments and advice just make complete sense – she truly does offer ‘sensible healthcare’! I initially went to acupuncture for secondary infertility, but also for general health and well-being. I was unsure what to expect but interested to find out more, particularly given that her healthcare came highly recommended.
During and after treatments I felt a wonderful sense of calm and like I was really nourishing myself. I love the fact that this is a completely natural approach to healthcare.
As a result of acupuncture I have a much increased sense of whole-body awareness and vitality. I feel generally much more relaxed and confident in myself, and I have gone on to have a wonderfully healthy pregnancy, supported throughout by Rebecca’s amazing acupuncture techniques. Her acupressure recommendations were used by my husband on me during labour resulting in a fantastic labour experience and a completely drug-free delivery: we now have a lovely baby boy!”

"Before I came to see Rebecca, I wasn't sure how it would be different from other acupuncturists or alternative practitioners I'd seen. Being treated by Rebecca I felt safe and in good hands, and looked after both on a professional and a human level. I experienced feeling both physically and emotionally better: The pain in my neck and back were relieved and I felt more grounded and relaxed after each treatment."
Debbie Jeffery, Wellington
"Over a six year period, five members of my immediate family died (including my husband) and I ended up a mental and physical wreck. Amongst other things, I had chronic neck and shoulder pain, lousy digestion, poor sleep and a defeated, depressed mental outlook. I tried grief counselling, massage, physiotherapy, exercise, improved nutrition etc etc - but with only limited success. I then tried mind/body counselling and this helped enormously.
"However, it was only when I added Rebecca's treatment that I improved in leaps and bounds. The changes were remarkable - and in only a couple of months. I am now both mentally and physically stronger. I stand taller! I feel optimistic. And I now feel able to build a new life for myself."
Anne Spicer, Christchurch
“After the suicide of my brother, I experienced panic attacks and feelings of anxiety which were affecting all areas of my life. I felt very fragile and challenged by normal activities - work, exercise, relationships, etc.
I got amazing results from the first treatment: Just speaking to Rebecca and understanding that my experience was not abnormal made me feel much better. After I received treatment, I was much more at ease, and the effect lasted for weeks. I have been seeing Rebecca for ten months now. My treatments have gone from every week to around once a month. I have steadily been feeling stronger and better, and I am now back to doing everything I used to do prior to the bereavement. If feelings of anxiety come up, they are now just slight background noise and not the total focus of my attention.
Previously, I have had acupuncture for sports injuries, but I was not expecting such significant results. I have also been using yoga, qigong, massage and counselling to help get balance back in my life, but I would consider acupuncture the most effective treatment I have undertaken. Rebecca is great, very gentle and accepting and makes me really feel like there is nothing wrong with me. And the needles really don't hurt!”
