About ProHealth Hub




Auckland Chiropractic Centre

Our Story




ProHealth Hub has been a vision and dream of co-founder Dr Aaron Huang for quite some time. On returning to Auckland following a stint of volunteer work in Africa with an internationally recognised medical organisation, Mercy Ships, Aaron and his wife (Tracy) felt inspired to step out on their own to start a local health centre.

It was at this time that Auckland Chiropractic Centre was in search of new owners, prompting them to take over as the successors of this well established chiropractic clinic. After several years of running the business, they had made many changes to the centre, namely the addition of alternative healthcare services. It was then that Aaron and Tracy discovered the benefits of working closely with other like-minded health professionals and led them to the prospect of further expansion.

The decision was made to establish ProHealth Hub and invest into the long term plan of moving into a purpose built premises. Now located in Royal Oak, they are very excited with the opportunities ProHealth Hub carries in providing a greater range of healthcare services for the growing health needs of the community.

With over 12 years of clinical practice in the field, she has become experienced in working with other health providers (e.g. chiropractic, physio) to achieve maximum quality of care and outcome for her patients.

One of Aggie’s specialties is in Abdominal Acupuncture. This new and rare method is a powerful and effective technique in treating all areas of the body.

This technique is aimed at patients who may prefer a gentler, less invasive yet very effective treatment.

Depending on the individual needs, Aggie uses a combination of treatment modalities (e.g. acupuncture, cupping) to deliver tailored care for each of her patients. Aggie is also interested in musculoskeletal injury, sinus conditions, digestive problems (bloating), emotional disorders (stress, anxiety) and women’s health.
