Dr Virginia Jin has 20 years health experience in China and New Zealand and a Bachelor of Health Science in Chinese Medicine (New Zealand) to include Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCM).
She set up Ponsonby Wellness Centre clinic in 2012. Since then she has received great feedback from patients regarding the treatments given for pain such as migraines, period pains and stroke symptoms. Her treatments are also successful in helping with fertility, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), menopausal and gynaecology disorders and have proven to help with anxiety, depression, stress, digestion disorder and insomnia.
Dr Virginia says people often ask why acupuncture can treat so many problems and says the TCM theory is:
1. When the human body becomes ill, it means the body has lost it’s Yin Yang balance, Qi (life force), blood, body fluids and essence disorder.
2. The six main causes of illness are wind, cold, damp, heat, summer heat and dryness. Acupuncture can help the body to recover from and treat various symptoms like chills, aversion to cold, body aches, greasy skin and bad body odour, arthritis, feeling heavy or bloating, high fever, restlessness, thirst, blurred vision and constipation, dry skin, dry stools and dark brown coloured urine.
Dr. Virginia will carry out an initial consultation with each of her patients to diagnose the type of disorder they have; not only the symptoms but also to find the cause. She uses the TCM method of tongue, pulse and navel diagnosis and depending on the outcome each patient will have an individual treatment and follow up plan.
“It is considered that many people are scared of the needles,” says Dr. Virginia, “ but I use less needles and there is no pain with my the methods. I am confident that my experience using this alternative and natural drug-free way of healing will help my patients recover quicker from their illness.”
Ponsonby Wellness Centre also has experienced massage therapist Fred Li at the clinic. Fred’s passion for massage started in China in 1996, however over the last 10 years he has worked in South Africa, Europe and Australia.
