Tonics and balms made from native medicinal plant as used by traditional maori.

For centuries Maori had ways of restoring health by using the native plants of the land.

This understanding and connection with our environment allows restoring to health from even some of our "incurable " diseases such as diabetes, and those connected with thyroid , heart and mind. In 1907, the Tohunga Suppression Act outlawed the use and talk of the traditional medicines. This Act was not revoked until the 1960's and has taken 50 years to really re-surface in society. Now that it has, let us embrace the remedies that are so freely available and that have helped so many.

Using Rongoa has allowed many to return to a healthy and energetic quality of life, with the rebalancing of body , mind, heart and spirit. (tinana, hinengaro, manawa, wairua)

Ko HineAhua Tokootokoo toku ingoa,
te ahua o toku ingoa
ko te tuumanako, te whakapono, me te aroha.

This is my given name in 2013 by a man who had been my Maori mentor and friend since 2005, Paraone Patena Mariu. It is his 5th great grandmother's name, she who was brought in as support for the Rangatira. Given to me since I come in as support with the Rongoa. My lineage is predominantly Scottish and I was born and brought up in Whangarei though my known line has been in New Zealand since 1855 and comes from Mission Bay.

I have the Certificate in Rongoa Appreciation (level 4), Rongoa Heke (level 5) and further training. Predominantly my Rongoa training and supervision was done initially by Hone Ratana. Hone has been involved in Rongoa all his life, firstly trained by his Tuhoe Grandmother . He is from Te Arawa and has worked in Rongoa Clinics for over 20 years.

From May 2015-2016 I was priveldged to be under the guidance and training of Billy Tuhua, a High Tohunga who runs a clinic in Auckland. I am registered as a Rongoa Practitioner here in New Zealand. I see clients in Whangarei and run Maori Traditional Medicine workshops there and in Auckland.

I also have both a Bachelor Degree of Science in Chemistry with papers in Health and Nutrition, and one in Psychology and I am Master Practitioner in NLP. Better Thinking Ltd is my own business using NLP and Rongoa and I am registered with the NZ associations of both Rongoa and NLP.

I am passionate about Rongoa Rakau, and their effectiveness in regaining health. Alongside my Rongoa Rakau Clinics, I am interested in researching and collating results to enable Rongoa Rakau to be used more regularly in public health.
