Tim Casey

  • Accupuncture specialist

"if the condition cannot be treated directly, then it is always possible
to treat symptoms surrounding the condition."

Tim Casey, began his journey with acupuncture in the 1980s when he was injured in a fall that left him unable to walk. It was acupuncture that took away the pain and allowed the tissue to heal and got him back on his feet. Tim has lived and worked in Dunedin in the field of Acupuncture for more than 14 years.

Tim originally trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the Australian Collage of Natural Medicine (ACNM) in Brisbane, Australia. Tim's also studied Toyohari (East Asian needle therapy) in Tokyo, Japan, where he was to expand his acupuncture knowledge as taught by the blind (Japan has a 700 year old history of encouraging the training of non-sighted practitioners of Acupuncture due to their heightened sense of touch). Tim continues to pursue acupuncture studies and practical training; most recently travelling back to Brisbane and Sydney to learn the teachings of Dr. Yoshi Manaka's proteges, Kiiko Matsumoso.
