Johnson Su (CM Practitioner, Herbalist)

Hello, my name is Johnson. I was born in Taiwan, moved to New Zealand as a young boy and am now raising a family of my own here. I have always had a passion for healthcare, beginning with chiropractic before finding my true calling in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

I am grateful for the friend who first introduced me to this practice as it truly changed my life. I had been suffering from a viral facial paralysis that would not resolve on its own when I first saw an acupuncturist. With their care, I was finally relieved of this affliction and had a new curiosity and enthusiasm to do the same for others. From there on I was hooked!

Since then, I have studied in both New Zealand and China, graduating with bachelor’s degrees in Health Science (TCM) and Medicine from the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With an extensive base of knowledge and training, I began my practice in New Zealand working alongside many talented and well-known practitioners of Chinese Medicine. This experience has enriched my practice and helped me to provide my patients with the best treatment, specialising in pain management, sports and work-related injuries, stress, depression, women’s health, and a range of other chronic disorders.

My interests beyond Acupuncture help me to maintain my healthy lifestyle, including running, exercising at the gym, and taking my two beautiful dogs for walks.

Victoria Lee (Acupuncturist)

Hello, I’m Victoria Lee, a South Korean native who moved to New Zealand in 2017. Growing up in an Asian background, I witnessed the widespread use of acupuncture as an alternative medicine. Although my personal experience with acupuncture was limited during my youth, I became fascinated with its positive impact on my own well-being when I started experiencing digestive issues and headaches in my twenties. This sparked my deep interest in the field, leading me to pursue extensive study and practice in acupuncture. I successfully completed a bachelor’s degree in acupuncture from the New Zealand School of Acupuncture.

As an acupuncturist, I find great joy in helping my patients alleviate pain and address their health concerns. Proficient in Traditional Chinese Medicine principles, I have the skills to diagnose and treat a wide range of health issues. I am dedicated to continuous learning to provide the best possible treatment for my patients, improving their physical and emotional well-being.

 

While acupuncture is well-known for its effectiveness in musculoskeletal problems, it also offers benefits for internal diseases. My professional mission is to educate and provide treatment options for individuals with internal diseases who may have been underserved. My expertise lies in managing muscle pain from injuries, digestive disorders, headaches, and women’s health concerns. I strive to be a trusted healthcare provider and a lifelong confidante, always ready to assist individuals in their health journey without hesitation.

Macs Lee (Acupuncturist)

Greetings! I’m Macs Lee, and I bring a unique blend of cultural experiences and a passion for Chinese Medicine to my acupuncture practice in New Zealand. Born in Taiwan, my journey took me to New Zealand and later to various Asian countries due to family reasons. This diverse upbringing not only enriched my cultural perspectives but also set the stage for my career as an Acupuncturist.

During my university days in Shanghai China, I decided to return to New Zealand and delve into Chinese Medicine. My personal history with Chinese medicine mirrors that of many – it was the ‘leap of faith’ my parents took to address my childhood struggles with asthma. This decision turned out to be life-changing; it allowed me to embrace sports without the hindrance of health concerns ever since then. Acupuncture then became my trusted ally, aiding me through numerous sports injuries during my semi-professional ice hockey career.

My journey led me to explore the profound impact of Chinese Medicine on overall well-being. Inspired by my own transformative experiences, I enrolled in the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2017, earning a bachelor’s degree in Medicine.

Now, I channel my knowledge and experiences to help patients overcome sports/work injuries, pain, insomnia, headaches, fatigue, digestive problems, and other chronic conditions. My commitment to quality care drives me to continually seek new insights and techniques to benefit my patients.

Outside the clinic, you’ll find me either on the volleyball court or sweating it out in the gym. These activities reflect my commitment to a healthy lifestyle, complementing my professional dedication to enhancing the well-being of those I serve.

If you’re looking to alleviate pain, manage chronic conditions, or simply improve your overall well-being, I’m here to guide you on your health journey. Let’s work together to achieve your wellness goals.

Warm regards,

Macs Lee

Yujie (Jet) Zhang (Acupuncturist)

Kia-Ora! My name is Yujie Zhang. Since I was little, I’ve been treated by traditional Chinese medicine on countless occasions.  The unique diagnosis and treatment mechanism amazed me. There are many records of TCM tackling unprecedented epidemics. After the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic,  I found the opportunity and need to pursuing a profession in traditional Chinese medicine. It’s been an enjoyable ride for the last three years of study at the New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine. In addition, I’m continuing my study for a master’s degree to improve my knowledge and skills.

I’d like to share the fundamental TCM theory and philosophy with you. TCM is based on the concept of yin-yang, a holistic approach to harmonizing the inner energy flow. It aims to treat the human body as a whole and the root cause of the disease, restore and re-balance your health.  Many people encounter health problems like chronic fatigue, insomnia, depression, anxiety, irregular menstrual cycle, poor digestion, etc because of their modern busy lives. Yet, people are seeking alternatives rather than merely relying on medications. Here you can see an increasing demand for natural therapy such as acupuncture. My mission is to improve your health condition and help you get back on track. It is a great joy and fulfillment to see patients getting better.

FAQ

New to Acupuncture?

We see a lot of patients who are new to acupuncture. Don’t worry, we will talk you through it. Please reach out to our reception team or ask your practitioner if you don’t find the answer you are looking for here. At New Lynn Acupuncture we love what we do and are always happy to explain.

According to classical Chinese medicine, Acupuncture works to restore the body’s ability to heal and regenerate itself. It does this by stimulating the movement of qi and blood within the body, thereby removing blockages that can lead to illness. According to a classical Chinese proverb, “If there is free flow, there is no pain. If there is pain, there is no free flow.” In other words, Chinese medicine proposes that it is the movement and free flow of qi and blood within the body that is necessary for the maintenance of health.

In contrast, Western medicine believes that acupuncture’s effects may be explained by the release of endogenous opioids and oxytocin following the stimulation of acupuncture points with needles.

Once you fill out the initial paperwork, you’ll come into our communal acupuncture room and speak with your practitioner about the issue that has brought you in. The acupuncturist  will ask follow up questions to help them decide how to proceed with the session. Very small, sterile, single use needles will be inserted into acupuncture points, then you will be left to rest for about 30 minutes.

At the end of your session your acupuncturist will remove the needles and answer any questions that you have.  You will be given a treatment plan before you leave which contains our suggestion for how often you will need to come in.  If you are feeling nervous please let your practitioner know, they will talk you through the whole process. 

Acupuncture points usually feel a bit pinchy when the needles are inserted. Afterwards you may experience a heavy or achy sensation. Most people find the needle stimulation very mild. Don't worry, it's nothing like getting a needle at the doctor's office. We use tiny, hair thin needles and a gentle needling technique.

Sometimes, depending on what you're coming in for. Other times it may take a day or so after the treatment to see an improvement. With chronic, long-standing issues, it can take a few treatments to notice a difference. Ask your practitioner what to expect for your individual condition. Sometimes you will be feel a bit tired or sore after treatment, this is normal and usually fades quickly.

Make sure to eat something within a few hours before getting acupuncture. Wear loose fitting clothing so that it's easy to roll up your pants and sleeves.
