Inspired by the good TCM can do.

Healthcare has always been a point of comfort and interest of mine. I immediately connected with TCM when I was in the last stages of pregnancy with my first child.

Being inspired, as a patient of David's, at what Acupuncture and TCM could do for me and my family's health lead me on a journey that keeps inspiring and amazing me.

During my studies I was an intern at the clinic and recently joined as a fellow practitioner after graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Health and Sciences, and Acupuncture.

I instinctively felt at home with the Chinese way of medicine from the start. "It made sense, especially in a Western culture that is too heavily dependent on drugs. It is great to be able to use the best from both cultures and really help people."

My main interests are Gynaecology, Fertility and Women's Health. "It was exciting to explore this area in Chinese medicine." Nurturing women's reproductive systems was always a huge part of Chinese medicine since ancient times.

"I feel privileged to be here doing this work. I love people; every patient has something special about them."

Real Life Stories

I used David Craddock at Ponsonby Acupuncture Clinic, he's the go to guy for fertility in Auckland. Out of my four Invitro fertilisations (IVF) he knew exactly which ones I got pregnant on and which I didn't. We called him magic needles.
