Rongoā Māori Service



Our Rongoā Māori service offers a holistic approach to healing based on recognising the needs and well-being of an individual while supporting them in improving their quality of life. The service is koha-based and confidential to anyone who wishes to register with us. Although Huria Trust has a focus specific to Māori, the service is open to all.
