Following diagnosis in 1988 with Fibromyalgia I have spent the years since then seeking out different types of treatment for the myriad of symptoms this condition presents, all with minimal success.In the ensuing years I have become unwell with several other conditions associated with Fibromyalgia and I have found Sachie’s holistic approach to be extremely positive and encouraging.
She has given me a great insight into my health issues, where they may originate from, and following her treatments including Acupuncture, Shiatsu , Dietary advice , Relaxation Techniques and suggestions for appropriate exercise I have experienced considerable relief from the chronic pain and other symptoms suffered for over 25years.
Sachie is an extremely knowledgeable, caring and sensitive person, thoroughly professional in her approach and has a very calming way of communicating which always leaves me feeling relaxed and peaceful both during the treatments and more importantly afterwards, enabling me to cope better in between appointments.
I will continue to see Sachie regularly as she has a “tough task “ but I lookforward to a more positive time a head with her valuable, much appreciated help.
I would recommend Sachie to anyone who is keen to take a holistic approach to managing their health.

I’m now converted; I’ll be contacting Sachie in the first instance if I suffer from any further health issues.
Sachie being an ACC approved provider was a real bonus and I was very impressed with her professional and caring manner. I have no hesitation in recommending her, and as a family we will continue to use her services when the need arises.

I just thought you would appreciate some feedback regarding the support you supplied me following my broken wrist and ongoing issues.
Originally I was sent to the Merivale Hand Clinic – and although the staff were very supportive and helpful I felt the treatment did not address the chronic situation I had. I continued to go to the hand clinic 2 times a week and was getting very frustrated with the lack of progress – I then found a lady Sachie Otake who is an Acupuncture and Shiatsu Therapist and a ACC provider.
Her treatment was excellent – professional and effective – and although my serious Chronic pain and nerve damage improved a great deal, it was needing more sessions which you kindly agreed to – I have just completed the additional sessions and wish to report that although my wrist and hand has not returned to normal, I have the pain under control and – it is a great deal better and I am able to function through my everyday life and the rest of the recovery will take time – I am continuing treatment with Sachie once a fortnight to ensure a recovery.
The effectiveness of Sachie’s treatment was excellent from her not being able to touch my hand initially through the chronic pain to what has transpired – she worked on the nerves and blood flow up the entire arm which aided in recovery. I would highly recommend Acupuncture (and in particular Sachie) as part of anyone’s recovery after injury.
I wish to thank you also for the treatment provided.
Sachie’s acupuncture definitely helped in the treatment of my temporomandibular joint disorder (jaw clicking).
Her massage coupled with acupuncture has great results for sore muscles.
I left after each session feeling energized and of positive mind.I definitely would go back to Sachie for further treatment in the future and I would recommend acupuncture to anyone age or ailment
When I suffered form an injury at my gym, I ended up with a neck and shoulder problem, and this time, I had numbness in my right index finger (something that had never happened before). After only two treatments my shoulder problem was much better, and the numbness almost gone. I could feel things at my rig index finger tip again! After a third treatment the problem cleared up completely.
Satchie’s treatments are unique, in that she also does a little massage into the effected area (something that not everyone does).
I still see Satchie sometimes for some regular treatment, for a few other issues, and some old injuries. This is an excellent practitioner whom I can recommend thoroughly.
