RONGOA / MIRIMIRI CLINIC
Ngā Kākano is very pleased and excited to now offer Mirimiri to the community. We have 3 facilitators who use traditional rongoā to make their own products which are used in their treatments.
Traditional Māori healers (Tohunga) used MiriMiri as a means of healing injuries, releasing old tensions, and balancing bodily function. It is thought that pain can be indicative of unresolved historic; past or current issues and not necessarily clinical. Our facilitators are excited to offer this traditional healing to the community.
A self-referral for this service can be completed at www.ngakakano.org.nz. An appointment will then be organised for you.
The Mirimiri clinic operates on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am – 12pm. This service is for enrolled patients and clients of Ngā Kākano only.
WHĀNAU ORA DIRECT
Whānau Direct assists whānau to access financial resources when it matters most to whānau, with the intention of making a positive difference for whānau. Whānau Direct offers up to $1,000 for whānau to achieve positive outcomes such as becoming self-managing, living healthy lifestyles and being financially secure.
This service is available via Ngā Mataapuna Oranga and is subject to availability of funding.
