Dr Lee Round – Chiropractor/ Clinical Director
I moved to New Zealand in 2015 and became the owner of Cromwell Health in 2018
I graduated from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2006. Since then I have continued to develop my chiropractic education completing my International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma, certifications in Applied Kinesiology and Active Release Technique. I have also done Dry Needling and Paediatric Chiropractic courses.
By having chiropractic care from a young age, I understand the importance of chiropractic care in childhood development and helping children reach their full potential. Before coming to New Zealand, I owned 2 family practices in country Victoria Australia, where I treated patients of all ages.
I enjoy being involved in the local community working with sports clubs and other community groups . When I am not at work I enjoy going to the gym, walking my dog and enjoying the amazing scenery we have at our doorstep.

My acupuncture is a combination of Japanese and Chinese style – very gentle safe needling. You will feel a unique sensation to needling when aimed at muscles or trigger points, acupressure points and bone.
If required, I can also use an electrical machine for muscle stress relief and I also use Meridian points for stability of autonomic nerves.
Acupuncture can help to keep you in good health.
In my spare time, I love Yoga and walking, drawing, painting, gardening. I am excited to be living in New Zealand amongst this amazing nature.
Acupuncture may help with the following conditions:
・Injuries to the neck, back and joints.
・Symptoms of the nose, eyes, ears, mouth
And many more. Acupuncture is one of the most appropriate forms of treatment to maintain good physical health.
Mina Yamaoto – Acupuncturist
I graduated Acupuncture School in Japan in 2008, training at clinics based on chronic symptoms, internal symptoms and rehabilitation. I came to New Zealand in 2017 and worked in an Acupuncture and Physiotherapy clinic in Auckland where I got the opportunity to improve my skills in treating acute injuries.
I enjoy treating patients using basic acupuncture techniques such as gentle needling, cupping, moxibustion, guasha and massage for relief of pain and relaxing muscles and nerves.
While in the North Island I got to enjoy the outdoor adventures such as cycling, hiking and swimming. I did an open water swim which was so much fun. I continue to do these activities in Central Otago and I am learning to Fly fish. I love being back to nature.

I fell in love with snowboarding and have chased winter for last six years and now settled in Wanaka. I have always wanted to be involved in healthcare. The hands-on aspect and the opportunity to interact with people and help them spark the interest in physiotherapy for me.
During my treatment sessions I focus on patients’ goals and by combining different techniques including dry-needling, massage, sports taping and exercise therapy to obtain the best outcomes possible for them. I am looking forward to the warm summer sun and the amazing fruits from Cromwell.
