I visited Jane for an experiment before flying to the other side of the world a fortnight ago, and was delighted with the results of acupuncture treatment with her.
With acupuncture as my preferred form of medical treatment for most health problems over the last 30 years, I've become fussy about how practitioners work with me.
I'm glad to report that Jane was so proficient with her very fine acupuncture needles that I felt no discomfort at all and dozed off before the treatment was finished.
The result of my visit to was that I began a long journey feeling refreshed and energetic, and the acupuncture seemed to dispel jet lag.
For the first time ever, I arrived in New Zealand in unusually good health after travelling for around 36 hours.
After just a few hours' proper sleep in Auckland, I was ready to meet the big challenges ahead of me.
