History: Established in 2017.
After gaining a wide range of experience as an Acupuncturist and Tuina Practitioner in different settings throughout the greater Wellington Region including Hutt Hospital Maternity Acupuncture Clinic, a community outreach program at Arohata women's prison, at Bendy Buddha in Island Bay, at Achilles Clinic in Wellington Central, and as a Teaching Assistant and a Guest Lecturer at the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Nate Wafstet identified a gap in the market and opened up his own clinic on The Terrace in Wellington Central where he could incorporate the experience and skills that he had acquired to build a thriving inner-city practice.
Meet the Business Owner:
After working in the US military and as an Engineer in New Zealand, Nate made a career change because he wanted to give back to the community. After researching different options he decided on training as an acupuncturist, as acupuncture is a prominent method of assisting veterans in the US. Nate is passionate about using acupuncture to help everyone, and fully believes in Traditional Chinese Medicine's ability to help and heal the broad spectrum of conditions of those coming to his practice. Nate has treated mental/emotional disorders, musculoskeletal conditions, chronic conditions as well as complex individual cases that patients may present with. There's nothing more satisfying than watching the progression of each patient when they embark upon their personal health journey, and Nate has great passion to help facilitate patients to achieve their health goals.
