The Acupuncture Clinic

About Jackie Burkett BA(Hons), LicAc, MBAcC


I qualified as an Acupuncture Practitioner back in 2003 in the UK,  after undertaking three years of full time study. Up until 2012 I worked full time as an Acupuncture Practitioner, in Poole/Bournemouth on the South Coast of England. In 2012 we had an opportunity to emmigrate and I moved with my husband to the Bay of Plenty in April. I am now excited to be building up a practice in New Zealand. I am a member of the British Acupuncture Council, the New Zealand Acupuncture Standards Authority (NZASA), and the New Zealand Institute of Acupuncture (NZIA)


I developed an interest in treating fertility after I trained with Zita West in the UK in 2004. Zita is a fertility expert in the UK and integrates western medicine with acupuncture and nutrition (you can read more about Zita at I became a founding member of her affiliated acupuncturist network and have undertaken thorough training in Western and Eastern approaches to fertility under her guidance for the last seven years. I was a member up until the end of 2011. I have also been a member of the Acupuncture Fertility Network in the UK, whose patron is Dr Michael Dooley, a leading gynaecologist. I have been present in theatre to experience patients undergoing egg collection, embryo transfer, iui and sperm aspiration. I have a passion for helping patients achieve their goal to conceive, whether it be through natural or assisted means, and am here to offer as much support and information as I can.
