Physiotherapy And Acupuncture

A Combined Approach For Musculoskeletal Issues

Advanced Recovery in Auckland was established by Daniel Henry, physiotherapist and Steve Olsen, licenced acupuncturist, in 2014. Both had been treating patients in the Onehunga area for many years and they saw that the combination of physiotherapy and acupuncture in one clinic in Auckland would allow them to offer the highest possible standard of care to all their patients.
