Dr Peter Mills – Principal Practitioner & Senior Acupuncturist
Peter has a background in many therapies, and has extensive experience with a range of diagnostic systems, including various naturopathic and Japanese acupuncture assessment methods. This allows him to quickly identify what is going on in a client’s body, what is working properly and what is not, what has caused the problem, and what is the best way to resolve it. (This is done during our free Comprehensive Health Assessment.)
Peter also provides Japanese acupuncture treatments, with a special interest in difficult and complex cases, long-term wellbeing, and pain relief. He also has a particular interest in working with clients with fertility issues.
