RETURNING to the Gold Coast - MIRIMIRI and ROMIROMI; authentic Maori bodywork and healing. Learn about cultural knowledge and practice. Be immersed in Maori tradition, gain insight, discover your potential and experience personal insight and transformation.
Authentic Mirimiri is a powerful indigenous healing modality. This is often in contrast to the widely held misconception that it is merely another form of massage. Experience a cultural perspective of health and wellbeing; including the importance of self-care AND caring for the environment (Papatuanuku), which are the foundations of traditional practice.
You will be given the tools to utilise Mirimiri, not only as a form of healing for yourself and others, but as a way of life.
