About ProHealth Hub
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 of their centre.
The decision was made to rebrand as 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.

Gareth van Sambeek
Gareth completed his 4 years of study to gain his Bachelor of Health Science in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) at the New Zealand School of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (NZSATCM) which is New Zealand’s leading institution of its kind.
He was first introduced to the concepts of TCM through his involvement in Tai Chi and martial arts as they require an extensive understanding of human physiology. When learning martial arts, injuries are not uncommon, therefore acupuncture and tui-na (a Chinese form of massage) are often used to speed up recovery time.
Gareth has effectively treated a vast range of conditions and health concerns using traditional acupuncture as well as modern methods and tools such as heat lamps, electro acupuncture and fascial manipulation. These vary from treatment for injuries, musculoskeletal pain, headaches, digestive dysfunctions, mood disorders, and women's health.
