Matthew has been exceptional in every respect. So genuinely kind and caring. In the past I have had acupuncture but the previous experiences and results were not at all as thorough, comprehensive or effective as with Primecare.
In addition to helping relieve my nerve entrapment and migraines the cyst on my finger I have had for for years is gone.
Palmerston North is very fortunate to have such a fine practitioner. Truly world class!
Thanks Matthew.

I am most grateful to Matthew for beginning me back onto a path of a pain-free life again.

Matthew knows what he's doing and provides a very rejuvenating and zen experience, it reminded me of my Buddhist Acupuncturist in Shanghai. He's definitely a professional in his field.

I am thankful to have been recommended him by my Physiotherapist and I recommend him to those in search of an excellent Acupuncturist.



I highly recommend Matthew, he is absolutely wonderful and so incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at his craft.
I took my 11year old daughter to Matthew for a shoulder injury after a recommendation from a family friend and that was the best advice I have ever received!
He was incredibly patient with my daughter and took the time to actually speak with her as well as me which is often not the case with most health professionals. She was nervous about acupuncture but Matthew was so caring and spent the time explaining the process to her and was always checking in to see if she was okay. Every treatment was an amazing and relaxing experience and she is now finally pain free after nearly a year of seeing other health professionals with little results.
Thank you Matthew, we would never hesitate to return to you or recommend you to others as we are so lucky to have found you :)

Where do I even begin?! Matthew has been nothing short of amazing. I first came to him a few months ago as a sufferer of debilitating migraines, and within weeks of our first few appointments, I noticed a huge difference in the frequency and intensity of my headaches. Matthew was able to fit me into his weekly schedule at short notice and I haven't looked back. It makes my day seeing him, and our chit chat always leaves a smile on my face! Matthew is extremely professional, personable, genuinely cares, and does all he can to help. His clinic space is calming and his soul shines through in the work he does! I 100% recommend Matthew and his healing touch. I am moving away soon, and will dearly miss my weekly sessions with Matthew. Thank you Matthew for being you!



I came to see Matthew about a year ago when I was not able to move my dominant hand due to pain, right down to my arm. Within a few sessions, I was able to see a major difference.
He's very thorough with his treatments and always checks in on his patients and focuses his treatments on their concerns. My body has improved greatly ever since I've started getting acupuncture by Matthew.

My mother also went to see him, not being able to move her arm for a couple of years post-surgery. She has tried other clinics beforehand, but did not help much. After seeing Matthew for a few months, she is able to lift her arms and has full range of movement now! Matthew is amazing at what he does, and genuinely caring towards his patients. Very glad to have met him.

I want to give a massive shoutout to Matthew at PrimeCare Acupuncture Clinic and Jaeyoon Lee (Dr. Jay) at Whitehead Chiropractic Clinic for putting me back together!

This is me finishing the Tauranga Half last weekend (in 6hr 28min, a personal best) where 5 weeks ago I could barely sit down, let alone run, due to an injury in my hip causing sharp pains in both my hip and lower back.

When everyone else told me no sorry we are full or not taking new bookings so close to the Christmas break ( I contacted several doctors, Chiro's, and Physio's) these two gentlemen did not hesitate one minute and still slotted me in the SAME DAY they spoke to me.

Both worked on my injuries over the Christmas break to ensure I had every chance to heal in time before the event. Matthew even went out of his way to tape me up before the event.

If Matthew and Jay wouldn't have provided me with such an amazing service I would have not been able to compete in this event which I have been training towards for 5 months.

Thank you so much!!



Thank you so much Matthew for my acupuncture treatment, not only were you able to get me in at such short notice, but you were able to go above and beyond when it came to the treatment. A very relaxing and relieving experience that allowed me to keep playing my sport. Thanks heaps and well and truely recommend!

Matthew comes highly recommended. Ive had acupuncture elsewhere before but never did I have a painfree experience as I did with Matthew when he inserted the needles.
I had excruciating back pain due to an ankle injury and half crawled into the practise rooms .Within two sessions I was able to bend, twist and walk.I admire Matthew's dedication and professionalism.Acupuncture coupled with suction cups worked well for me.



Excellent, professional service. My session was totally worth the time and money. Matthew helped me ease my back pain and increase my range of movement. Looking forward to my next appointment with him! 100% recommended.

We were seen at very short notice as our daughter was playing hockey in the secondary school tournament. Matthew was awesome. Treated Abby with professionalism and the treatment was highly effective. We thoroughly recommend Matthew. Thank you so much.



Matthew treated me for several months, and I actually looked forward to our appointments. It was always a very relaxing experience, and I would feel great after our treatment. Matthew has a wide range of skills including needles, cupping, massage, and support taping. If you have the opportunity to be treated by Matthew, you will be pleasantly surprised that he is a genuine, caring practitioner, with great values. A true professional.

Great service! Matthew knows what he's doing and great at what he does. Visited Matthew a couple of times and the treatment was effective. Really recommend Matthew



Absolutely brilliant - Matthew’s treatment of my back injury was pain free, relaxing and completely effective. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and was always accommodating with booking times. Highly recommend!

Have been seeing Matthew coming up a year now for chronic pain. Matt listens to all your concerns and focuses on these, always making sure you're okay during the treatment. Would recommend Matt to everyone who wants acupuncture.
