Welcome to City Acupuncture.
My name is Janine Nana and I have been practicing acupuncture since 2006, holding a Bachelor of Health Science (Acup), and in January 2000 became certified as one of two fully certified Neuropuncturists in New Zealand, having trained with Dr. Michael Corradino since 2017.
To reframe my knowledge of classical Traditional Chinese Medicine in a neuroscience way made a lot of sense to me. Now a Neuropuncturist, I have a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of acupuncture treatments and am able to communicate with other healthcare professionals, in their own language, which is reassuring to patients and doctors alike. Being a neuropuncturist also means mastering Electric Acupuncture techniques, enabling me to copy evidence-based protocols which, my patients appreciate.
What is neuropuncture? It’s an acupuncture system that incorporates neuroscience and other western medical science into its clinical applications for pain management, orthopedic conditions, and internal medicine. It involves Electric Acupuncture (EA) which applies the theory to EA with neurologically based acupuncture points. It is a discipline that brings together molecular biology, neurophysiology, nanotechnology, and published EA research.
I am registered with Acupuncture NZ, am an ACC treatment provider. I am a foundation member of Wellington’s Acupuncture for Mental Health Team AMH and was a founding member of the Fertility Acupuncture and Childbirth Team (FACT) which I left to devote more time to neuropuncture studies. Whether you are trying to improve your health, manage pain, improve strengthen immunity, or are looking for adjunctive care for illnesses you are treating with mainstream medicine, acupuncture may be able to help you.
