About Us

About the Clinic

David Craddock started the Ponsonby Acupuncture Clinic around 18 years ago, and since that time has become known as a Traditional Chinese Acupuncturist who loves a medical challenge. His successes have gained him a reputation as a miracle worker in areas where hope is normally slim.

The Clinic has grown to a team of three Acupuncturists with shared philosophy and skills that compliment each other well.  David's experience and techniques are shared across the team, and together, they all constantly push their knowledge further. What is possible for people's renewed health with this kind of dedication is considerable.

The way of Chinese Medicine is to maintain people's whole health like "gardeners" rather than dealing only with health emergencies.
