Rongoā Māori

Rongoā Māori is a body of knowledge that has as its core the enhancement of Māori wellbeing.

Rongoā Māori traditional healing is formulated in a Māori cultural context, in which the understanding of events leading to ill health and its impacts are addressed through a range of culturally bounded responses. These responses include rakau rongoā (native flora herbal preparations), mirimiri (massage) and karakia (prayer). For more information around Rongoā Māori, and for a list of Ministry-funded Rongoā Māoriproviders, please see the Ministry of Health website at the following link:
