Dawn has provided me with invaluable dietary guidance and in doing so helped when a close family member had cancer, he is now totally clear thanks in many ways to him following Dawn’s recommended Macrobiotic Way – something we still base our diet around.I’m in London and I do miss Dawn and wish I could teleport her over here now that I’m suddenly faced with a big health issue – as I know she would know what to do. And Jessie the clinic manager is fabulous with her supplement recommendations. You definitely know you’ve stumbled across a little bit of magic in Auckland once you’ve discovered them.

I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough - a wonderfully caring professional with unsurpassed knowledge in the area of acupuncture. There is something very special about this place - it's as though you get transported to another world the second you walk in the door. The practice exudes peace, healing and an abundance of professionalism. It has helped me immeasurably and I can't recommend it highly enough.

I consulted Dawn about a flare up of a chronic skin condition. Her empathy and wide knowledge inspired confidence and trust. Her technique is gentle and her approach calming. The treatments have been successful; she is a great practitioner.

Dawn helped turn breech presentation and preparation of my first daughter. I was determined to have a natural birth and Dawn played a very important role in getting us ready both physically and mentally in so many ways. After a few treatments with Dawn combined with the moxibustion treatments she taught me to do at home our little miss baby had moved to the optimum position for birth. She was born without anything but the willpower, focus and metal preparation that Dawn and I had been focused on and prepared for which was the outcome we wanted. She was a very strong baby and we had a good birthing experience.

My experience with Dawn is one of complete trust and faith. Dawns’ acupuncture treatment is gentle and effective. Dawn healing technique takes place on a mental as well as physical level.

Dawn is a true professional and makes you feel completely at ease from the moment you meet her. Dawn has a gentle touch with acupuncture (it doesn’t' hurt!) and explains everything very carefully and tailors everything specifically for your own conditions. You’re in safe hands with Dawn.

Therese LaniganAuckland, NZ

Dawn Lucia is an amazing and wonderful acupuncturist and healer. She brings intelligence, thoughtfulness, warmth, and compassion to both her diagnosis and treatment. Her technique is excellent. I have walked into her office stiff and in pain and have left relaxed and pain-free. She is great!"

Allison King, Licensed AcupuncturistLos Angeles, California

Dawn is not only a skilled and experienced acupuncturist, but also a pleasure to work with. She clearly cares about her patients, which shows in her exceptional service as well as considered and thoughtful advice around all aspects of well-being. Some may be weary of acupuncture (due to the needles), but I can honestly say acupuncture with Dawn leaves you feeling calm, clear and energized. I thoroughly recommend her.

Emma CameronAuckland NZ

I have been treated by a number of different acupuncturists. However, my experience working with Dawn Lucia was the most fulfilling one I've had with a medical professional. My experience with Dawn was the most collaborative and supportive of any doctor-patient relationships I've ever had. Her warm, caring personality created the kind of holistic experience often lacking in the medicine. I have yet to find one to equal to her – she is, in a word, simply the best, better than all the rest.

I have known Dawn since mid 2006 as both a referral source for myself and as my personal Acupuncturist. As a Chiropractor in a very busy practice in the Auckland CBD I find Dawn’s work a fantastic complement to my work as a Chiropractor. Not only is Dawn extremely professional and thorough in her history taking and examination abilities - her holistic treatment protocol and her ability to address the “whole picture” makes her an extremely valuable referral source for myself. Dawn’s caring nature, ease at treating varied problems/conditions, and the results she produces is one of the many reasons why she is “my” Acupuncturist and the only Acupuncturist I refer to in Auckland.

Kimberley McLean, Chiropractor, Advanced Spine and Joint ClinicAuckland NZ

I have been going to Dawn for well over a year and wouldn't go anywhere else. Dawn and Jessie are two of the most beautiful, sincere, kindhearted ladies I have had the privilege to know. They get to total high 5 from me and I would recommend to everyone :)

I went to see Dawn with severe chronic back pain that my doctor wanted to treat with anti-depressants to help block the pain. After one session with Dawn the pain was significantly better; after 4 or 5 sessions it was completely gone and I never took a single pill. I was impressed by Dawn’s incredibly thorough initial consultation and have come to value the warmth, kindness and respect she displays in her sessions.

I saw Dawn for both my pregnancies and I love going for my treatments, as it was a chance to relax and recharge my energy levels. I went over my due dates in both pregnancies but both labours came on naturally thanks to Dawn’s expertise.

Kristi KennedyAuckland NZ

Dawn is an amazing at Acupuncturist. I've used her and her treatments for everything from an out of place neck to tune ups for sleeping better and increased energy. Very high integrity and really cares about her client’s holistic well-being.

Andrew BairdAuckland NZ

"Never having received acupuncture before, Dawn was very sensitive to my weary nature and slight phobia of needles. I felt my needs, both emotional and physical, was listened to and I always come out feeling better for the session. On more than one occasion my personal development benefited immensely."

Louise AaronsAuckland, NZ

Dawn has provided us with a most excellent and successful service for several years now. Through our IVF treatments and pregnancy (and to treat incidental ailments along the way), she put everything into perspective and used a range of therapies in response. I attribute both IVF success and a happy and healthy full-term pregnancy largely to her care. Her holistic approach means that body and mind are tended to in a most pragmatic yet sensitive way. I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough for her professional and thorough treatment plans and responsive therapies and personal commitment to each and every client.

June RisAuckland NZ

I felt really well taken care of by Dawn. She is very professional, intelligent, empathic and capable. She diagnosed and treated some chronic conditions I had. My only wish is that she was still in Los Angeles so I could continue seeing her.

Wanda Jewell, PsychotherapistLos Angeles

Dawn and Jessie have been welcoming me for years. Their wealth of knowledge and genuine caring was evident from the beginning. Dawn has treated my aches, pains and chronic challenges. My sinus and allergy problems have improved with regular visits. I find the visits very relaxing and usually take a snooze while the needles are working. My visits now are more of the maintenance nature although Dawn knows when something else needs attention. They certainly have been helpful to me.

Marjean JonesAuckland NZ

Dawn and Jessie are so calm and caring you cannot help but feel better for seeing them even before you've had a single needle! I have been seeing Dawn for a year now and not only do I feel more relaxed and centered for it but I know it's doing my physical body a world of good. Their place is welcoming and warm with always a kind word or some encouraging wisdom to be received while visiting. Very highly recommended no matter what your reason for finding an Acupuncturist or Herbalist.

Jenny GrantAuckland NZ

I found Dawn’s treatment has an almost immediate effect to rebalance me and several of the symptoms I was experiencing to do with menopause and they all cleared up after just a few treatments. I still feel better balanced after I’ve had a session.
