    About the practitioner list

    Practitioners must be registered with us to provide rongoā Māori services. If you want to see a practitioner we haven’t worked with before, we'll need to register them before approving your request. 

    The practitioners listed have been police vetted and endorsed by rongoā mentors and mana whenua, and are registered to provide ACC services.

    All rongoā Māori practitioners are subject to the requirements of the Health and Disability Commissioner Act 1994.

    This list will change as we make improvements to our registration process and as new practitioners complete their registration. Additional practitioners may be available through our Recovery teams. Some may not be listed due to inactivity or not wanting to share their contact details online.
