In the last few years the clinic has seen a dramatic increase in patients seeking alternative treatments to compensate conventional treatment methods with fantastic results.

Virginia Jin

Virginia Jin

Ponsonby Wellness Centre, Bao Yi Qian Chinese Medicine Clinic was established in 2012 by TCM practitioner, Virginia Jin, who came from a family of both modern and 5 generations of traditional Chinese medical practitioners. Her great grandfather founded Bao Yi Qian Chinese Medicine Clinic in Zhejiang, China, hundreds of years ago.

After Virginia immigrated to New Zealand (NZ) in 2004, she inherited her ancestral practice to promote the role of Chinese medicine overseas, integrating acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine as natural therapy and applying it to modern treatments.

Virginia is a current NZ registered acupuncturist provided by NZ Acupuncture Standards Authority (NZASA), with approved ACC. Moreover, Virginia helps to treat the roots of conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, natural cosmetic, infertility, and gynecological conditions, in which modern practice may be weak in.

Virginia’s principle of treatment is that any disease begins with poor circulation. With more than 20 years of clinical experience, she has been able to develop treatment plans using traditional Chinese medicine ideas to solve patients’ problems without side effects and has received a very good reputation.

Acupuncture needles gives you a natural beauty and help weight loss by regenerating your OWN cells.

Acupuncture is often talked about as a fabled cure-all. But this needle therapy is, first and foremost, a complex approach to your body’s energy and health that we stick to at Ponsonby Wellness Centre. Why does this traditional acupuncture clinic practice prove to be so effective, pain- and stress-relieving?

The needle treatment dates back to the times when antibiotics and other medicinal drugs didn’t exist. Today, pharmaceutical substances are the solution offered by conventional medicine for any health condition. But often, these aren’t of much help or do not work at all. 

Targeted at symptoms, many drug formulas or base ingredients actually cause more harm than good, triggering health complications or adverse effects. That’s when many patients start seeking alternative treatments. One way is to come to our Chinese acupuncture clinic to experience drug-free relief.

Our acupuncture techniques focus on eliminating imbalances, muscle spasms, stress and strain in the whole body rather than just symptoms.
