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 medicine or other complimentary therapies.
Jeff is a practitioner and teacher of Yang Style Tai Chi and a consummate martial arts student. When not in clinic, just look out to sea, you may find him paddling in a waka in the Tasman (or any other body of water for that matter) with (or without) his two teens.

Ko Jeff tōku ingoa
No reira, kiaora kotou
Tēna koutou, Tēna koutou, Tēna tātou katoa

In Clinic Visits
Appointments are all personal, one on one sessions. I see patients most days at Taranaki Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine located inside the BodySMART Complex. You sill find us at 321 Devon Street East on the Strandon side of New Plymouth between Eliot and Hobson Streets. We are across from Vetro Foods and just east of the new IRD offices (makes it easy to pay my GST)
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.
