Heiko Lade is a current member and former president of the oldest registered acupuncture professional body in New Zealand, the New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists Inc. now known s Acupuncture NZ.  Members of acupuncture NZ are required to adhere to strict professional guidelines part of which is to practise to a Code of Ethics. The Acupuncture NZ Code of Ethics specifically and clearly stipulates that no member can advertise their practises using testimonials of their patients.

Heiko Lade has been in private practise for 30 years and his practise constantly attracts many word of mouth patients. Besides that, people have been receiving acupuncture for over 2000 years. With a track record like that, who needs testimonials?

These people below were not patients of Heiko Lade or of any practitioner who works at The Acupuncture Clinic, but these people have publicly advertised that they have used acupuncture and were very happy with the results.

Perhaps you have heard of them.
