Before becoming a qualified acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, I juggled a corporate career with raising a family. During a somewhat inevitable mid-life crisis, principally for my own wellbeing and healing, I began exploring alternative health modalities such as Reiki and Holistic Pulsing, Meditation and Yoga.
After receiving a course of acupuncture treatments at the student clinic of the Wellington based NZ School of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, I was inspired to embark on a 4-year tertiary course of study. The degree course provided me with the necessary essential foundations to work as a holistic health practitioner.
My original training was in Traditional Chinese Medicine Eight Principles and since graduation in 2009, I have added to my overall knowledge and skills every year completing courses in other styles of acupuncture including; Manaka Protocol, Dr Tan's Balance Method, Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese style acupuncture, auricular (ear) acupuncture, scalp acupuncture. I have blended elements of these into my own unique style of treatment.
A typical treatment session will involve the palpation of reflex areas on the neck, abdomen, hands and feet to diagnose underlying the patterns of disharmony guiding me to determine the individual treatment strategy for the client. My treatments may involve; acupuncture, tuina massage, tendon stretching, cupping, moxabustion, Chinese herbal medicine and/or western medicine nutritional supplementation. My approach is very gentle, holistic and safe. Clients often notice significant bodily changes as they relax on the treatment table.
I like working with all types of people and the health challenges they bring with them. Acupuncture stimulates the body's innate self healing capacity and moves energy blockages bringing the body back into a better state of balance.
I moved to Waikanae from Wellington 4 years ago and feel blessed to live in this beautiful region with its bush, rivers, beaches and of course good people! My interests include exercising at the gym, jogging, e-biking, yoga, reflecting, meditating being in nature, spending time with friends, family and grandchildren ...and continually learning!

Belinda helped me with some digestion issues and feelings of stress and anxiety through a mixture of acupuncture, cupping, massage and breathing exercises. After 2 sessions I’m feeling much more like my usual self! Her rooms are lovely and warm and very relaxing and her manner is very soothing.

Belinda is the best acupuncturist I have EVER been to and I’ve been to a few.
A wonderful mix of techniques & a lovely tranquil space. (I fall asleep every time).

“I am seriously grateful to Belinda for patient and persistent work on my frozen shoulder which other treatments have not had much effect on. Quite apart from the treatment itself, I have enjoyed her friendliness and warmth and the peacefulness of the environment she creates. Thank you, Belinda”

I have been to pretty much all specialists associated with joint pain and I must say I was skeptical, but I am intrigued, after three treatments my chronic pain dissolved and I am still waiting for it to come back. But It doesn’t seem to want to….
