Member NZRA, ACC Injury Treatment Provider

Hello, Wellingtonians!

My name is Summer Xue, I am an experienced and registered Acupuncturist who specializes in addiction relief, pain management and sports Acupuncture. I treat a number of different health problems such as migraine headaches, upper and lower back pain, hip pain, elbow pain, neck pain, stress and PTSD, depression, anxiety, frozen shoulders, insomnia, blood pressure maintenance issues, weight management and facial rejuvenation, along with many other disorders.

Specifically, I like to treat with a variety of techniques including acupuncture, moxibustion, Gua Sha, cupping and electro acupuncture and Herbs. My goal is to provide treatments that are both effective and long term, and with results that are satisfying. I love Acupuncture, it is the most widely used system of medicine on earth and has been used by billions of people over thousands of years.

My background includes five years medicine study; one-year experience working in the rehabilitation department of Dao integrated hospital, located in Qingdao city, China; and three years’ experience serving as a soldier in the Chinese military, capital Beijing, working in the department of health. I have also spent a year working in an herb & acupuncture centre here in Wellington as part of my work experience and I was trained as herbalist (China) too. My colleagues and patients describe me as both naturally caring and compassionate, and comment that it’s very apparent that I truly love what I do.

I look forward to meeting you soon so schedule an appointment with me online, today.

Fire Cupping

Cupping is the term applied to a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jars as suction devices. Most commonly, a burning cotton bud is placed inside a glass cup, which creates a vacuum inside as the hot air cools, creating a negative pressure for the therapeutic effects.
