Danny Park

Acupuncturist / Tui-na therapist

Danny graduated from the New Zealand College of Chinese Medicine. He finished the course of Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture major) and Diploma of Tui-na therapy (level 7). Danny worked in South Korea as an English teacher and stockbroker.  He grew his passion for Chinese medicine when his father was healed from a chronic illness through acupuncture and Moxibustion twenty years ago.  During his study journey of Chinese medicine, Danny was fascinated by the fact that acupuncture cures the genuine roots of an illness, not just the symptoms. He is specialised in electric acupuncture and Tui-na medical massage.  He now hopes that the unique medical therapy of acupuncture and Tui-na will contribute to the health of New Zealanders.
