Before life as an acupuncturist, Belinda worked in the corporate world, juggling a career with raising a family. She became "burned out" and began to explore alternative health modalities such as Reiki and Holistic Pulsing, Insight Meditation and Yoga. Then, after receiving acupuncture treatments at the NZ School of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, she was inspired to embark on a five year course of study that has provided her with the strong foundations necessary for life as a holistic health practitioner.
Drion Pads made such a life-changing difference to my overall health and wellbeing, helping with my menstrual challenges and my transition through menopause, that I went into business to import & distribute Drion sanitary products throughout NZ.
I’m also a health professional, a practising acupuncturist, who often talks to groups of women on how they can improve their menstrual health, why pads are much more healthier than tampons and how it is that many women are unwittingly absorbing the toxic nasties contained in most other brands.
