Te Whare Oranga o Te Manu Toroa – Wellness Centre is a new service that currently provides two treatments – Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMFt).
Both treatments are beneficial not only for general health and wellbeing but assisting in the management of a variety of health conditions.
Contact us today to book your 30 minute initial consultation appointment to discuss how mHBOT and PEMFt could benefit you. After your initial consultation you can usually get started on your treatment immediately, depending on booking times available.
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy appointments take 90 minutes. These appointments also include a complimentary 16 minute PEMFt session, so please allow 2 hours for each appointment.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy appointments take 30 minutes.
Te Whare Oranga Background
Te Whare Oranga has been a project that began a few years ago with a trip to Taiwan. A large contingent of Kaupapa Maori Health Providers travelled to Taiwan to observe the therapies that were being provided, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Taiwan has an impressive record of wellness service provision to it’s people, something whanau wellness providers across the motu are keen to emulate.
One of the organisations that travelled to Taiwan alongside Te Manu Toroa has implemented the therapies within their service and are already seeing the benefits of these treatments for their whanau.
In 2018 Te Kohao Health in Kirikiriroa launched their Wellness Centre that included Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy. On the 20th March 2019 Te Manu Toroa launched the second Kaupapa Maori Wellness Centre to offer these therapies. Te Whare Oranga will provide therapies for both current Te Manu Toroa Service users and private clients.
