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  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.
