Rongoā Māori is available to all New Zealanders through an ACC claim. Rosanna is an ACC registered Rongoā Māori provider.

In traditional Māori medicine, ailments are treated in a holistic manner.

Rongoā Māori is the traditional Māori healing system. This ancient lore, including plant use, massage, and incantations, has been passed down through many generations.

Over many years of practicing ancient healing bodywork and mirimiri, Rosanna has created a beautiful flow of mirimiri at Aroha including kanikani (rhythmic dance) and differing levels of pressure. Calming the nervous system, mind, body, spirit and supporting the release of trauma held within the tissues of the body.  

In Māori Philosophy, MiriMiri is a vibrational exchange (Reo) between our Earth Mother (Papatuānuku) and the Goddess of the Sea (Hine Moana).

We first clear our healing space (whakawātea) utilising blessed sea salt water (wai tai/wai tapu) and progressing with a Karakia.

Mirimiri (bodywork)
Whitiwhiti kōrero (support and advice)
