Emma has been my massage therapist for over seven years. On a fortnightly basis Emma travels to our home and administers her amazing therapeutic massage skills on me and regularly on various members of the family. I am positive Emma’s fabulous deep tissue massage is responsible for me being able to run my busy PR agency, as well as a household with three children. It keeps me sane and stress-free!! Having Emma’s massage to look forward to is my treat and my body knows when its due. Emma is very caring and instinctively knows what type of massage will be right for her clients. For over 20 years I have been receiving regular massage therapy and I highly recommend Emma Mclean as being one of the best massage therapists in Auckland.

Emma is great! For the last 5 or so years I have had a regular fortnightly massage from Emma. I find a regular massage really helps my body (and mind!), and I always feel fresh and energised the next day.  Within a few minutes of our session starting, she is able to determine exactly where the tight areas are and caters the massage accordingly. She makes recommendations and points out progress she sees over time. She is also very accommodating to my busy schedule. Emma is a lovely person and very professional.
I highly recommend Emma’s services.


I've had a few physios but Jon from Kingsland Physio I would rank the best. Didn't just fix my symptoms but found the source of the problem and retaught me many key movements. Would 100% recommend.


Best physio in town - Helen has her work cut out with all of my ever shifting issues but always gets results.

Dave Currie (NZ Olympic Chef de Mission)

I went to Janaka with significant pain in my left arm and hand as a result of an injury. I was impressed with his assessment of the injury, treatment plan and ongoing exercise programme. He used massage, needle therapy and selected exercises and I am now pain free and continuing with an exercise plan to build up strength. I found Janaka clear in his advice and communications and have found his exercise programme diagrams very helpful. I would certainly return if I required any subsequent injury treatment.

Justina Sellers (Olympic NZ Windsurfer National Champion 2012, current NZ No 1 kite board racing)

I compete in kitesurfing internationally so need to be on top of my game. I had an on-going shoulder and neck injury as a result of shoulder dislocation and many surgeries. Janaka assessed my complex injury quickly and treated me with massage, needle therapy and exercises which have given me the skills for long term treatment. My neck and shoulder are now much better. Thanks Janaka, great job!

Fritha (Auckland premier netball player)

I visited this practice for physio sessions after straining my soleus muscle during a netball game. I recommend Janaka for his professionalism, generally caring nature, and ability to make you come out of his sessions feeling better and being able to walk more freely. My first ever experience of acupuncture with Janaka was entirely positive. Thoroughly recommend this practice.


Thank you to Janaka for getting my shoulder back to normal. I can now enjoy surfing, sailing and going to the gym without having any pain. After dislocating my shoulder many years ago I tried quite a few treatments, but none worked. Janaka not only got to the root of the injury, he also taught me how to rebuild the muscle and prevent future injuries. Thank you.


Post car crash I received Physio treatment from Janaka to help with whiplash and neck/shoulder injuries. He made me feel very comfortable and always kept me well informed. My injuries recovered quickly as a result of great treatment and exercises taught. Would highly recommend!


Janaka treated an ongoing knee injury of mine as a result of running. Over the course of four sessions, his expertise and holistic approach to treatment had me back training in a matter of weeks. Some carefully selected, simple exercises between sessions also helped correct weaknesses and prevent any further complications. Very friendly, professional and thorough.

Baden Woodman, (North Harbour Rugby rep)

Janaka responded to my urgent call for help after I strained one of my hamstrings during rugby training. As it was the virtually the start of the season, I was extremely keen to get back on the field, however, as I'm a little older now, my injuries tend to take a bit longer to recover than they used to so Janaka was given the unenviable task of getting an old body back up and running within a very short timeframe. I found his use and knowledge of acupuncture to be extremely beneficial and I'm certain that this, coupled with a range of recovery exercises he prescribed for me, enabled me to get back out on the field quicker than I had expected. Thanks Janaka for keeping me in the game!

Regan (Northland rugby rep)

I had surgery on my ankle to tighten up ligaments in my
ankle and stabilise it. My surgeon advised that I would be
able to play rugby in 12 months. Janaka used various procedures like acupuncture and massage. He quickly figured out what my body responded to better and worked hard to reach my goals.
He was also proactive in progressing my rehab exercises to push my healing through at a good rate. Janaka demonstrated vast knowledge and provided many options to fit into my routines.
As a result I was able to play a 7s tournament five months earlier than expected pain free and I'm looking forward to playing club rugby again. I highly recommend Janaka as a physio, he works hard with you to achieve your goals and uses various procedures to fit what works for your body.
