Are ready for your own great awakening, to finally understand your own conditioning and how it may be an obstacle to radiance and abundance.
Highly respected in the Chinese Medicine profession, as educator, consultant and practitioner, Jeff’s characteristic, calm presence and compassionate nature, coupled with effective results, place his services in high demand. Jeff has special interests in chronic conditions of the body and mind that have not responded well to conventional (symptom/disease oriented) medicine or even other complimentary therapies.
Jeff is a practitioner and teacher of Yang Style Tai Chi, a consummate martial arts student. currently training as a shodan (1st degree black belt) in the United RyuKyu Kempo Alliance (Okinawan Karate and Kobudo) at Bu Ken Kan Dojo in New Plymouth. When not in clinic, you may find him training in the dojo or else just look out to sea, you may see him paddling in a waka in the Tasman (or any other body of water for that matter) with (or without) his two teens.
Tēnā Koutou Katoa
Ngā mihi ana au ki a koutou
Nau mai, piki mai, kake mai
Taranaki ki uta, Taranaki ki tai
E pūheke ana te awa Waiwhakaiho
ki te korokoro o Tangaroa
ki Te Tai O Rehua me kō atu
Kei te tū a Maunga Taranaki
taku whakaruruhau i ngā hau kino o te wā
E wātea ana au i tōku wairua
ki roto i te wai o Te Moana Nui A Kiwa
Tū tonu ngā wao nui o Giant Sequoia
ki Karepōnia ki te Tokerau, te ahi mahana
Ki tāwāhi e takoto ana Te Whenua Tōpū o Marikena
te whenua o ōku tupuna me ōku pitototo
I whanau mai au ki Karepōnia ki te Tonga
Nō Aotearoa ahau
Kei Poututaki au e noho ana
Ko Laurie tōku wahine
Ko Mason tāku tama
Ko Bay tāku tamāhine
Ko Jeff tōku ingoa
kia tau mai te rongomai
ki runga i tēnā i tēnā o tātou.
kia horahia te tika, te pono
te maramatanga me te aroha
o tētahi ki tētahi
mō te wā katoa.
mauri ora tātou
No reira, tēnā koutou tēnā tātou

In Clinic Visits
Appointments are all personal, one on one sessions. I see patients most days at Taranaki Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine located inside Tahi Health Space. You will find us at 1 Devon Street East at the corner of Currie Street.
All fees are listed in the online booking management link, so just click the button at the top or bottom of any page to get there.
I am an ACC authorised treatment providers if you already have an accepted and active claim lodged. If you require claim lodgement I can help direct you .
Under the current situation you will be asked to not book online if you have symptoms of influenza or other virus - just give a call or text to arrange a day and time to minimise possible transmission to other patients (or explore TeleHealth options).
This is a potential option either 1) for people who have influenza or other transmissible viral conditions, or 2) for people who have concerns about their own vulnerability to contagions, or 3) for people who can't make it into the city from the regions.
While I don't do acupuncture in the" Zoom Room" (on the video-conference) I can take your case history, offer my insight and counsel, prescribe internal and topical herbal medicines, prescribe supplements, offer CM-based nutritional advice, demonstrate self-care techniques and exercises. I can also send you press needles and stick moxa and teach you how to use those on yourself and your whanau.
Group Talks, Chats and taichi/qigong instruction
Got a group or circle that would like guidance on LivingHealthy. Let's talk about possible gatherings or group teleconferences to explore your ideas and answer questions you may have about - almost anything. I do have a lifetime of wisdom stored up for use on request .. and of course opinions on most things. Private and Group Taichi and qigong teachings available on request.
