I would like to talk about a wonderful experience I had.
I had been suffering from on-going numbing, pain and weakness in my right wrist for past few years as a consequence of working as a physiotherapist in Korea.
Physiotherapy in Korea is highly involved with massage and over few years of working, the symptoms got worsened by overusing my wrist.
I visited doctors and hospitals where they offered me a surgery but I was seeking a way to treat my wrist without it.
By the time when my friend suggested me to see Mr. Sun, my wrist reached a point that I found difficulty performing some of the simple house duties such as dishwashing, cleaning and so on. I decided to visit Sonny for help.
After just a few sessions, I could feel dramatic improvement on my wrist. The ongoing pain and numbing on my wrist went away over time and I could feel my wrist more and more strengthened over time. After almost 20 sessions within 2 months of time, now my wrist is pain-free and I could definitely say that the quality of life I am having at the moment is nothing to compare to the past.
If anyone is considering treated with acupuncture, I would strongly suggest seeing Mr. Sun. Not only because of his amazing skills of acupuncture, but also because of his patient-centred care.
I injured my disc from lifting heavy dumbbells using my back. Before the treatment, I was experiencing a significant amount of back pain. It was to a degree where I felt a tingling sensation down my right leg (doctors say this is caused when you injure your disc at a certain high level). It has affected my range of movement during my day to day activities. I couldn’t stand or sit for longer than 5 minutes due to the pain and this also disturbed my sleep every night. In addition to this, the injury altered the balance of my body; my right shoulder was higher than my left shoulder.
After the first session with Sonny, the pain level dropped immediately. After about 3 sessions, the pain was almost gone. After 2 months of treatment, the pain is completely gone and my shoulder levels are in line. It was amazing to find out that even a disc-related injury can be improved with a single needle by Sonny.
Now I do not have any troubles in my daily activities and due to my body structure being balanced I can enjoy my hobby wind surfing longer and without becoming tired easily.
I highly recommend Sonny Acupuncture.
I’ve been a landscaper for the last 20 years. I love my job but my body is now showing the toll of the heavy labour. I have a protusion at L4-5 in my spine which was causing me significant pain as it was impinging on my sciatic nerve (shown by MRI).
I couldn’t sleep, sit or lie down comfortably and all the doctor offered me was pain killers which did little to ease the pain. I was told I’d have to wait 5 months to see a specialist but couldn’t work due to the pain. I was only sleeping for about an hour a night and it was agony. My left thigh muscle lost all tone, which meant I couldn’t bend or do anything requiring strength in that leg.
I was keen to try anything that might help me get back to normal – so I came to see Sonny. Within just three sessions, the pain had reduced by about 80%, my mobility and comfort improved and I was able to sleep again.
Sonny put me on a regime of treatments and these have made a huge difference to my quality of life.
I am now back at work, and I believe the regular sessions with Sonny are what’s keeping my body functioning and the pain at a minimal level.
Over my life, I’ve endured many injuries and the slow healing process that goes with them. Sonny’s treatments have been a refreshing change to standard medical treatments – I am genuinely amazed and thankful for how quickly and thoroughly acupuncture has helped me.
I would recommend Sonny to anyone.
Before i started having acupuncture I was having burning sensations in the head (something that i had suffered in the past and had for a long time) along with back pain.
After the first session they instantly stopped causing no more problems with pain. Although the back was tight and the new balance in the body felt off, After a few weeks the tightness went away.
I can now play tennis and go to the gym without any problems in the back or head. I would leave the acupuncture a bit sore till the next day where I would wake up feeling more energetic than before.
I look forward to going to treatments for general well being.
At the end of July 2016 I fell heavily injuring my mid back area.
A doctor prescribed me pain medication so i rested through August with heat and pain meds. The pain lessened a little.
In September I continued with a short overseas trip which I had planned for a long time; the body heals itself right?
But I returned to New Zealand still uncomfortable and with sensations of pain, and I now had to go to physiotherapy.
In October the physiotherapist ordered an Xray report and I received some unwelcome news. My T12 was shown to have a compression fracture with greater than 50% loss of the vertebral body height.
In December my back pain was easing off slightly but was still there.
After Christmas I contacted Mr Sonny. The first treatment from Mr Sonny in the first week of January was like a miracle, I had relief at last! The second treatment the following day confirmed my recovery but I was recommended to have a few more treatments for full recovery. After 4 treatments i was able to attend yoga classes.
Mr Sonny’s acupuncture was what my body needed to put an end to my 5 months of pain, I am now pain free. Thank you I am so grateful.
To whom it may concern,
I was suffering from sciatica, with terrible stabbing pain running down my left leg with numbness in my left foot. After visiting the doctor & physio, both telling me there was nothing wrong, I could barely drive and I have a very physical job and business, so I paid for my own X-rays. I had heard of Mr Sun but didn’t know how to find him until he was recommended to me by the health shop at Silverdale. Sonny looked at my X-rays and gave me a full explanation of what had happened to my spine. Years of hard work have worn out some of the discs causing my pelvis to twist. I started treatment and years of untreated muscle tension took its toll with symptoms of headaches & nausea which Sonny & his wife Monica helped me through with acupuncture & moxa.
The pain in my back improved greatly with every session and as Sonny treats the “whole body” he also treated my neck pain, hip pain, menopause symptoms and immune system. For over 30 years my body would ache at night which I thought was caused by my physical job. Now I can sleep pain free. My hay fever has improved so much. I only took 1 telfast tablet this year instead of 1 every day. I haven’t had a cold or flu & my menopause symptoms are greatly improved. I can drive easily now my left foot is no longer numb. Twice over the busy spring period at work my tennis elbow flared up & Sonny curved it each time with 1 treatment.
It is always a pleasure to come for treatment with Sonnys smiling face & I can help you attitude. It gives me healing restorative rest & a break in my unrelenting schedule.
I can highly recommend Sonny for his acupuncture.
Sonny cares for the family with a holistic approach and unexpected bonuses
Husband and wife story: My husband was seeing Sonny for a sports injury and he kept nagging me to see Sonny for the lower back, hip, leg pain I had as a result of two slips within 6 months of each other. I had tried acupuncture in my 20s to pain relieve a neck injury and I had a very negative reaction to it so I was very reluctant to give it a go again. I finally gave in and went and saw Sonny. I was OK initially, and had some immediate relief, but then I found I couldn’t tolerate the needles to the level we got to (as had happened with me in my 20s) and so I felt I couldn’t continue. Sonny is an approachable man and so I talked with him about this and asked if he had any alternatives or if we should call it quits. Sonny is very experienced and he understood what I was meaning and so he changed to a less intense method using a needle tapping technique, along with what he calls a number 8 balance. I continued my acupuncture sessions (which complemented my osteopath therapy) and this has given me tremendous pain relief as my lower back and hip heal. A big bonus is that in addition to his good work with my injury, I started using some of Sonny’s herbs which has helped relieve some of my menopausal symptoms and has given me more energy.
Daughter’s story: We also got our daughter along to see Sonny for sporting injuries. With Sonny’s structural approach, he noticed an imbalance with one shoulder blade protruding more and one hip higher than the other, and so he incorporated work on her imbalances, and for the first time our daughter has had good posture, less aches and pains with her back and hip, and her injuries have healed and so far she has managed to avoid further injuries. This physical change was amazing for us to see, and what is even more amazing is that she has always been very scared of needles and it is testimony to Sonny’s good character that she trusted Sonny to look after her. She loved and looked forward to having acupuncture at Sonny’s clinic. A bonus for our daughter is that Sonny’s acupuncture also helped her with period pain and migraines.
We recommend Sonny (and his assistants) for his acupuncture and herbs that give results for pain relief, relaxation and energy. Sonny is very professional, caring, a good listener and is also very funny :)
I had long term significant pain in my left knee. My G.P. had been unable to prescribe any medication that would alleviate the pain. I was not sufficiently crippled to meet the hospital criteria for an operation. I slept with my knee supported by a cushion. It was painful to walk and i could no longer go hunting or diving.
I came to Sonny Acupuncture clinic to see if acupuncture might help. The results of Sonny’s holistic diagnosis and treatment amazed me – after three sessions the pain had stopped. I had ten acupuncture sessions over 2 or 3 weeks which is what sonny had recommended.
Being a little cynical, I wondered if the results might be simply a temporary masking of the pain. For the past two years since Sonny’s treatment I have been able to go hunting for a week at a time, carry a heavy pack and walk all day.
I have come to see Sonny again having recently strained my back. Again, the difference in flexibility and range of movement after a couple of treatments has been wonderful.
Thanks very much for your help Sonny.
I am writing to endorse Sonny Sun Whom I have periodically been a client of for five years.
At the age of 35 in 2011 I suffered a very painful rugby injury where I pulled muscles and tendons in my back and broke a rib. Due to the nature of the injury movement was very painful and restrictive, so i was off work for 2 weeks and on some very heavy painkillers which made me drowsy . During this time, I could not feel any improvements in my injury.
I was then introduced to Sonny who carried out acupuncture on me. Within the first treatment I was back to work and off all painkillers, by the time his treatment was finished I had full range of movement with no pain.
Over the past five years as my body has aged and my years of playing rugby have caught up with me I have found that going to Sonny really helps me heal from aches and pains and general knocks. Also the hour long relaxation time on his treatment bed has also helped to relieve any stress that had built up over time.
I highly recommend using Sonny Sun acupuncture for any muscular skeleton issues and general stress relief.
Ex rugby player
A few years ago I fractured my left upper arm just below the shoulder. The doctor told me that I would never be able to use that arm like before the accident.
I decided to consult an acupuncturist who was introduced to me by a dear friend. His name is Mr Sun and now my arm is miraculously healed. While he was treating me I told him that I had suffered from hay fever(Sinus) for over 30 years.
While he was treating my arm, he added extra acupuncture needles to treat the hay fever and now I no longer have any trouble with hay fever.
Mr Sun’s acupuncture treatment has produced two miracles, healing my fractured arm and curing me of hay fever. If I need treatment for injury or any other illness I now go to see Mr Sun and I am so grateful to him.
