Rongoā Māori Support Service

Rongoā Māori support is an additional service that can be added to your EAP membership.

Ensuring your staff are happy and healthy at work is the core purpose of the EAP Services programme. Ensuring people have cultural support is also important to many organisations. Understanding different world views on health and wellbeing is vital and while western medical customs have a place in the healing process, so does traditional medicine. Our Rongoā Māori Support Services is focused on providing Health Professionals for Māori clients. When our kiritaki are looking for more of a traditional approach to health and wellbeing we are able to provide Rongoā Māori Support Services. 
We have initiated this service to benefit staff who need support from a Te Ao Māori (Māori worldview) lens.

Rongoā Māori is a traditional Māori medicine approach – a system of healing that is passed on through the ages. It comprised diverse practices and an emphasis on all dimensions of health. Rongoā can include but is not limited to; herbal remedies, physical therapies such as massage and manipulation, spiritual healing, and supportive talking therapies.
