Professional treatment massage and acupuncture in Upper Hutt, by a fully trained therapist with professionally recognised qualifications.

Welcome to Pukeko Therapy

Pukeko Therapy was started by Andre Capiez, a sport and therapeutic masseur with a strong interest in complementary health. Andre decided to open a massage clinic in Upper Hutt, specialising in sport therapy and treatment massage, because he believed that there was a need for professional massage treatment by fully qualified therapists in Upper Hutt. After graduating with a 4-year Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Andre went to Nepal for two months with the Acupuncture Relief Project, treating an average of 16 o 18 patients a day, six days a week, and on his return added acupuncture to his treatments, continuing his professional developent after an internship in beijing with  regular workshops.

APPROACH: Proven and effective soft tissue therapies and acupuncture help with pain, injuries, stress, sore muscles, tight fascia, and postural tension, and restore homeostasis.

COMMITMENT: At Pukeko Therapy, you can expect to be treated safely, with skill, professionalism and respect.
