Dean is great! Really good at finding the spots that need help and gentle about it. Would happily recommend him to anyone. Thanks Dean for your help.

I am very lucky to find Dean to treat my back pain. I have been to numerous physios and gps to find no effective treatment for my problem. Sessions with them only lasted 30 mins, with them addressing the issue to a very shallow level and my problem persisted. When I went to Dean I felt like he really took the time to sit down and listen to my complaints. Each session was 60 mins long with acupuncture and massage and he also gave me a small program to do in my own time. It's only been 3 sessions but I can feel the pain is slowly going away. Overall, the standard that Dean sets is far beyond any other practitioner I have been to. 100% recommend him to anybody.

Dean helped me with my knee that was in pain since 15 years. Now it's like I had a new knee. I enjoy his holistic approach, combining acupuncture, massages and herbal treatments. I recommend him a lot.

Dean is the best practicioner I've ever been to - and I've seen many holistic healers! He gave me a combined treatment of TCM, acupuncture, massage, counselling and herbal remedies to take away. He is the only person in NZ registered and practicing Tibetan yoga and treatment. I found Dean to be wise, caring, insightful and very effective at helping with my health issues. In only one session!!! I would recommend Dean to EVERYONE and just wish I could see him more but I'm moving from Auckland in a few months. If only we could bottle him 😊💖 Thanks again Dean, you're awesome!

If I could add another star I would ! In the past I suffered a very painful sport shoulder blade injury . Going to the physiotherapist with ACC was absolutely useless, even worse, in addition to the pain I had to suffer some painful manipulations and those horrible 'dry needles' which are like knife stabs! In the end I was so demoralised and still so very aching that I had to use steroid injection. Dean listens to you and understands how he must cure your injury, he does not dissociate yourself from your pain . This is one of the many reasons his needles heal you and for this don't even hurt anymore. In addition to making the pain of a deep muscle tear in my right hip disappear in 3 sessions, with delicate massages, chinese herbs and acupuncture he is able to treat my 'chronic anxiety' wonderfully , leaving me in a state of perfect and natural relaxation that no sedative can give you. I have used Valium in the past a few times but Dean's treatment is way better than Valium! Thank you Dean Wickenden , you are a magitian .

I have been struggling with my inner energy and infection on my wrist. after a few session with Dean I felt already changes in myself and my wrist has been healed amazingly. Dean is very professional, knowledgeable, caring and has a lovely, calming, energy. thank you so much
I've been seeing dean for almost a year now. I originally saw him due to severe neck pain .Normally, I don't seek help. I grew up in America and battled if the cost was worth the lessening of pain, it generally wasn't. The pain was so bad that I was encouraged by several friends to go see Dean. When I went to knock on his door he was very busy but checked on my neck then immediately took his one hour break between clients to give me a treatment. The first few sessions were very painful due to the level of injury but I felt the pain lessen and lessen then go away completely. At that point in my life I honestly had just come to think of that pain as a part of daily life and had given up on healing it. My shoulders and neck have been in pain my whole life, now, they feel great. Dean doesn't just focus on one area, he asked larger questions and started to get a wider view of my pain and imbalances and slowly i've began to feel more content, more balanced and overall happier. Taking the time once a week for healing has changed my life, I look forward to seeing Dean each week, its a dedicated time to heal and hangout with Dean, getting to know him as a person has been delightful. Each week I feel more and more able to talk and open up about my life. I have come to respect Dean as a healer and enjoy him as a friend

Dean Wickenden is one of the best acupuncturist I have ever been too, and I have been to see quite a few!!!! After YEARS of long term back tension, aches, and pains Dean has helped me resolve my back issues!!!! Words cant express really how greatful I am.. If you are someone with long term back issues.. having someone treat them is just the best feeling! 🙂 Dean is very professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated to his clients wellbeing. Being a health practitioner myself, and having tried many different modalities over the years for my back, I do not write reviews lightly! He is worth the review and more. He has been a significant person in my journey to wellness, and I would recommend him to anyone!! Blessings be Dean, your a gem! J.

Dean is a thorough, intuitive and skilled practitioner of acupuncture. I approached him with several health concerns after a prolonged period of stress. After several weekly sessions of treatment, my energy levels are much better, my 'brain fog' is lifting, and my digestion has improved. Dean is very attentive and is able to 'tune in' to nuances in the patient's feedback in order to diagnose and treat. I also attend Yoga Nidra class taught by Dean, and have found the emphasis on correct breathing and relaxation very beneficial to my overall healing process. Thank you, Dean, for setting me back onto the path of wellbeing. Much appreciated!
