Ko Justine Rangihaeata toku ingoa. Kaitiaki of Kawakawa Spa.
My healing journey begun in February of 2014. This is when everything came into great alignment meeting my beautiful Reiki Master Sarona Hawkins who eventually went on to teach Usui Ryoho gaining my 1st and 2nd degree.
Midway through 2014 I was so fortunate to meet Ema Weepu and given her teachings of Rongoa Maori, Mahi Wheua and Whanau Mirimiri. These teachings come from Maniapoto and were given to Ema by TeAwhina Riwaka who was nurtured and shown by her Uncle Kapi Adams.
2015 Ora Tika Rongoa Maori Runanga formed and collectively we became the movement to open 11 marae based clinics throughout Hutt Valley, Wellington City, Porirua and Kapiti Coast. As of 2019 a further 2 have now opened.
2016 Kawakawa Spa, our whare hauora opened in Koraunui.
2017 I was invited by Te Atiawa Runanga hauora, into a space which was given to bring our Rongoa to Waiwhetu Marae. This was very humbling because it also showed recognition for the mahi and it meant I had permission to harvest from Pukeatua Maunga.
2019 and I’m now living in Hamilton having just opened a clinic within the Tui Medical Center complex, Davis Corner in Fairfield. I'm looking forward to sharing my leanings through workshops in the very near future.
