Very happy with what Jenny has done for me, came to her with an issue and was remedied well and fast, I had confidence in her and took the time to help me understand what was happening through the entire process.

Jenny began treating a troublesome knee of mine about a month ago. In this time i have found her to be extremely thorough and knowledgeable with the treatment she has provided.

My knee now feels great and i am ready to get back on the squash court. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a great acupuncturist.

Dear Jenny,

I am writing this email to let you know that since I have been coming to your clinic for treatment I feel so much happier. shoulders and neck area were giving me a lot of pain that influenced the way I felt at work and home.

With the acupuncture and acu pressure massage the pain is significantly reduced ..I know that I have a long way still to go but thank you for helping me with my pain management.

I can see myself being able to get back to swimming shortly with the treatment I am receiving so thank you again.

I would recommend anyone young or old coming to you for pain relief or treatment they require for whatever reason. ..

I went to see Jenny to get help for carpal tunnel in my left wrist, that had been getting worse and worse for months.

In only a couple of sessions of massage and acupuncture she had eliminated all pain and instability in my wrist. I am now able to work, exercise and lift my kids without any strain at all.

I highly recommend Jenny’s treatment for this ailment.

I had arranged to have acupuncture to my left knee and left ankle which were both giving me continual pain due to arthritis ( related back to sports injury and motor bike injury) . I had been sceptical as to if this would work……

Walking up/ down stairs and sloping ground is no longer a problem. I will continue to have this treatment.

Carl R, New Lynn(* Results are varied from person to person)


I visited Dr Li (CN)* because I had a sore knee and was signed up to do an 8.5km run in the next 10 days. My knee was most painful when walking down slopes or down stairs. After just one acupuncture treatment, I have been incredibly impressed. Actually my other knee felt sore in comparison!

I highly recommend Dr Li (CN)* not only for her obvious skills at acupuncture, but also for her lovely bedside manner.

I was getting very bad shingles pain for over 6 weeks and the medications prescribed to me did not help until I sought treatment from Jenny.

After four treatments I am very grateful for the help and support Jenny gave me during this time.

Donald. W, Block House Bay(* Results are varied from person to person)


In the last year I had headaches on a daily basis, alongside the odd migraine. It made me feel nauseous, light headed and generally unwell. Taking medicine or not did not make any difference, and the eye and hearing tests were well. A specialist of vertigo diagnosed me with vestibular migraines and prescribed me propopanolol, a beta blocker.

The headaches were minimal for a month but then they came back just as bad as in the beginning. My GP suggested that I contact Jenny for an alternative solution to avoid increasing the dosage of my beta blocker. Jenny gave me a very welcoming, cheery and incredibly positive. She sat down with me as if she had all the time in the world to hear about my problems and the journey that had brought me to her. Her wealth of medical knowledge and confidence put me at ease immediately. She has a fabulous sense of humour and she explained exactly what we could do to ease my symptoms.

My sessions are never rushed – and I come out relaxed. My 6 year old daughter even allowed Jenny to pop a needle in her hand and she thought that was wonderful.

After 4 weeks, I have HALVED my beta blocker dosage and I’m delighted for the acupuncture and massage I had.

The pain of shingles was totally debilitating, the only thing I could do was sleep and painkillers did nothing to help……

The shingles is still in my system but well under control. Thank you Jenny indeed.

Clare Hargrave, Titirangi(* Results are varied from person to person)


I was referred to Jenny by my G.P. after suffering from terrible pain near my jaw for 6 days. Jenny was amazing from the moment I rang her as she was able to see me late that afternoon although I was pretty nervous about being treated with acupuncture.

I would recommend her to anyone as she was extremely pleasant to deal with and explained things as we progressed through the treatment. Thank you so much Jenny, it was a pleasure to have you help me sort out my problem.

A letter of thanks.

In the words of our mum, in her 83rd year suffering from shingles.

I would just like to say that the acupuncture I received from Jenny helped me curing the pain I was suffering with a severe case of shingles a nerve disorder.I had the shingles for about 9 weeks and with medication and ointments were helping, but not 100 %. It was recommended by friends to try acupuncture.

Well after 5 visits with Jenny, I can now say that I am free of pain. I would recommend her and her treatment to anyone. At first I thought I ,oh my god what is she doing , but after each session it was less.
Being the age I am, I was very of things that were not the normal. But have no problems with this , thanks again Jenny.

I have suffered from post shingles nerve pain for approximately the last six to seven years. I have tried numerous treatments and medication over the years with no effect. In April of this year I went to see Jenny Li to try accupuncture for my chronic pain.

Accupuncture is virtually a painless treatment procedure which has changed my life in a positive way.

J. G, Northcote(* Results are varied from person to person)


Jenny ‘s acupuncture skill was magical. I trust Jenny’s skill and will recommend her to anyone who needs acupuncture treatments.

Yvonne Chan, Hillsborough(Results are varied from person to person)

Jenny was recommended to me by my GP. I had visited her in April complaining of headaches over my left temple that had become more frequent. She diagnosed these as Neuralgia and said that she could give me medication, which was heavy duty, or I could try acupuncture which was known to be effective.

I followed the later course of action and rang Jenny immediately. After a thorough examination and taking down my medical history Jenny performed acupuncture over the affected area. I went back frequently at first and then with longer intervals. There was a noticeable improvement in the frequency of the headaches.

During my treatments Jenny explained Chinese medicine and answered any questions that I had. My last treatment was in the end of June and I am happy to report my headaches have not returned. If they were I would have no hesitation in returning to Jenny for further treatment. I have also recommended her to several of my friends.

Julie M, Laingholm(* Results are varied from person to person)

I was involved in a car accident in April 2008, where even after cervical spine disc replacements, I have an most likely will continue to have a condition which is known as CRPS. Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. This is the term used for ‘persistent pain’, separate to Acute pain which will only last up to a maximum of 3 months.

This means I have Chronic (permanent / Persistent) pain in particular affected area’s.
For me this is my Neck, right shoulder and back.

I write to advise and recommend anywhere suitable that Jenny Li and her magic massage and acupuncture sessions have an do work wonders for my condition and pain.

At times even with high volumes of pain medication, I lose vast movement in these area’s. with Jenny’s aid I get this movement back, an can continue to try an lead an almost normal lifestyle. I highly recommend these treatments to anyone with low movement or high pain…especially as CRPS has as yet, no cure.

Sian King, Glen Eden(* Results are varied from person to person)

when I initially came to Jenny I had been referred by a friend who spoke highly of the treatments she had received since her recent diagnosis of Menieres disease…my case wasn’t so severe, I had recently started having migraine headaches something I had not had since being pregnant with my youngest daughter who is now 8 years old, the last headache was extremely severe and debilitating, lasting for 3 days but also accompanied by flashing lights and paralysis down my left arm.

After discussing with me my general health over the past years Jenny prescribed a course of treatment which included acupuncture with an electric charge & also massage, I am pretty open minded about alternate therapies and non-Western medical treatments so was happy to give it a go, Jenny’s friendly & open nature ensured I felt totally comfortable & at ease with all
the treatments she recommended.

Jenny also told me of the possible changes my body may experience after the first treatment so I was not at all surprised by the after affects, in fact apart from the need to use the bathroom more the bonus of a restful deeper sleep was awesome..I only experienced one headache and that was after the first treatment, I have now been migraine free for many months, sleep better and as an extra Jenni has also helped me loose my tummy and I feel fitter, invigorated and full of life…my treatments continue & although I have an aversion to the electric current pulsing through me the amazing head massages & the relationship I have with Jenny ensure I will continue with her treatments.

Dear Jenny

I have been attending your clinic for several months now, having treatment for my painful shoulder and neck.

You have been thorough in your assessment of my symptoms and have prescribed a range of treatments to help provide relief. These have included regular acupuncture and deep massage sessions.

I have now regained strength and extension of movement in my arm. The pain has decreased. This allows me to continue my sport of paddling, as well as helping my regular daily activities.

You have provided me with education of the causes of my injuries, and exercises for me to do between treatments.

I am very pleased with the treatment you have given me and intend to continue with it, until the optimal results have been achieved.

Linley R, Glendene(* Results are varied from person to person)

Dear Jenny,

I would like to thank you and Raymond personally. In the months that I have been attending your clinic for massage therapy I have experienced a remarkable degree of relief from the symptoms I first presented with.

At the time of my initial consultation I was suffering from chronic neck and shoulder pain, which was interfering with my work and disrupting my sleep. The situation had become so severe that was forced to reduce my hours of work.

Just a few months into your treatment regime I have experienced so much relief that I have been able to reduce he frequency of my treatments. The neck pain is simply no longer a problem for me, while the pain in my shoulders and back is being adequately managed. My sleep patterns have improved and I can now work for extended periods at my computer and on the phone without pain.

Thank you again for your professionalism and, most importantly, the fantastic results

I have been seeing Jenny for several months for severe chronic pain following an ankle injury 28 years ago……

Jenny is extremely professional and experienced but she has a lovely personality too and I thoroughly look forward to my sessions with her not only for the relief they give me from my symptoms but also for her company. I always leave the sessions feeling much better.

Mandy F, New Lynn(* Results are varied from person to person)

Jenny has worked with me for 4 years. I am a C6 tetraplegic.

I play wheel chair Rugby. The sport is demanding on my shoulders. Jenny’s treatments and massage has helped maintain my shoulders, keeping them pain free with good strength and range.

I plan to continue to use Jenny into the future.

Martin P-Former NZ Wheel Blacks, Whenuapai(Results are varied from person to person)

I had great help from Jenny Li when I had my shoulders injured and Jenny Li has help me a lot to get rid of my pain and if there is something she is always ready to help. Thank you so much Jenny Li.

Anil K, Glen Eden(* Results are varied from person to person)

Thanks very much Jenny for your excellent treatment for my injury, your confidence in my injury treatment was the best part that gives me also comfort.

I would not recommend anyone else but only you. You are the best.

Lucas H, Henderson(* Results are varied from person to person)

Approximately 2 years ago I was inflicted with acute lower back, hips, and knee and above leg pain due to long hours of physical training. I visited a number of physio therapist and osteopaths but did not help or only for a temporary solution. My swim training instructor recommended Jenny Li to me as she does with a lot of her students; I am so pleased having a number of TCM treatments including massage, acupuncture and cupping.

Jenny educated me and taught me what I was doing wrong in my training and how my pain and muscle tightness can be prevented in the future.

I found Jenny’s TCM treatments to be more than beneficial and far superior to the Western style of massage and other treatments. I still visit Jenny every now and again to keep my body in top condition and I would recommend her and her TCM treatments to anyone with any sort of muscular pain or any other aliment.

Darryn S, Henderson(* Results are varied from person to person)

Traumatic injury to the right inferior dental nerve and nerve irritation to the distribution of the right trigeminal nerve following dental work involving a mandibular Nerve block.

I had lost all my nerve feeling on the right side of my face from the dentist going into the nerve with the local. Two of my very best friend had found out what had happened and they told me that the best thing to do is to have acupuncture. They said that this Lady Jenny Li, how is the best in Acupuncture would be the best to get a full recovery.

I have been seeing Jenny now for 16 acupuncture meetings. And in these 16 meetings I have got nothing but whom and loving care to get my nerves back up and feeling again. One or two days after every acupuncture meeting, I can feel a difference each time.

Jenny couldn’t do enough for me. As Jenny has done the upmost very right treatment to get my face and life back in order. I recommend to any one that Jenny Li for Acupuncture and nerve repair that is in need.

Robert A, New Windsor(* Results are varied from person to person)

After purchasing our new business which involves a lot of physical work, I started getting symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. A few week later after working at sites, both my wrist were extremely painful and tingling sensation throughout my fingers and also sore thumb. In the mornings before I wake up, my fingers get frozen and very painful to open and close my palm.

This continued for about 3 weeks until I found Jenny’s website via Google. I read a few testimonials and decided to take acupuncture as my first approach to the treatment. I had read about surgeries, but that was something I did not wish to have due to post surgery side effects etc.

I called Jenny and she was very helpful over the phone and booked me for a free 1st treatment and consultation. Jenny knew exactly what my problem was and was very professional with the entire course of my treatment.

After just the 1st visit I felt a lot of difference. After 3 treatments, one every week my symptoms were down to almost 5%. 2 weeks after my last treatment it feels like its almost gone.

Thank you Jenny for everything you have done for me, you got my life back on track again.Thanks soo much

Al Kumar, Avondale(* Results are varied from person to person)

I first came to see Jenny who gave me a very detailed examination and she told me what course of treatments that I required which was acupuncture to help restore my bodies natural balance and energy fields and also to help the blood flow run correctly around my body to stop these very painful attacks.

I was a little nervous at first to have acupuncture but Jenny kept me very calm and she applied the needles with ease and no effort. The procedure was very painless and quick. She then proceeded to give a head massage to help the blood flow, which is very relaxing and you can feel the blood moving around. (This really does feel very relaxing).

I came to see Jenny every week at first and now I come every 2 weeks. Within the first 2 weeks I noticed a dramatic difference with the painful attacks, they were more or less gone.

After treatment if an attack was coming on it seemed to quickly subside and not be as painful as previously before the treatment.

I can honestly say Jenny has saved me from days of severe painful attacks.

I have been seeing my doctor for 2 years previously and they didn’t know what the attacks were and just claimed them as cluster migraines, but Jenny knew otherwise and treated the heart of the problem with instant results.

My friends and family can’t believe the difference Jenny has made in my life. I can now function normally and don’t have to stay at home and be in pain.

Thank you Jenny Li you are truly amazing at what you do and I would like to thank you for helping me be “normal” again.
