ACC will talk to you about how your injury is affecting you and how you expect rongoā will help you to rehabilitate. You don't need a healthcare professional to refer you to a rongoā Māori practitioner, but a clinician may support your request for rongoā Māori services.
ACC do not refer to specific practitioners for rongoā Māori services. When you request access to rongoā Māori, they will ask you which practitioner you would like to see, and they can help get you set up.
Your ACC Recovery team member will need to approve your request for traditional Māori healing before you can start to receive care.
During heightened COVID-19 Alert Levels, if you are already receiving rongoā Māori services you can request Telehealth (phone or video conference) consultations from your ACC-registered practitioner to continue to access care.
For bookings and enquiries, contact Teresa Hart.
No worries, we got you! Here is the recent list of ACC provisionally registered practitioners.

te houtaewa challenge
The youth version of a Marathon Team Relay. Exactly the same in terms of requirements to participate but sponsored by Te Houtaewa Maori Charitable Trust to ensure that this korero will be here for Mokopuna of tomorrow.
This is created by Tamariki for Tamariki, following in the footsteps of our Tupuna and the Wero “Te Houtaewa Challenge”, known for his incredible athletic abilities.
In teams of six, you will form a relay team where you will all participate in the 42km Marathon course, each completing 6km of the journey towards the finish line of Paripari Domain, Ahipara. At the end of the relay, you will be welcomed into a festival where your whanau and friends are encouraged to come along to help cheer you and your team in.
Anyone that’s a taitamariki/youth!
Taitamariki/youth is any persons between the ages of 13 – 22 years old, so anyone aged between 13 – 22 years old can enter and be part of the Taitamariki Ultra Team Relay Challenge.
We want this challenge to be inclusive to all youth in our community so we encourage anyone in this age range to come together, form a team and take part in the challenge!
We want to break down the financial barriers for our taitamariki (youth) in order for them to be a part of this challenge! Register a team and together decide, what and how you will contribute.
KOHA – (Maori custom of a gift, present, offering, donation, or contribution) toward this event.
It is up to you to form a team! You can team up together with classmates from school, like a sports team, as a church group, as a whanau or just as a unique team!
Some things to know
The challenge takes place on Saturday 19 March 2022 at 8:15 AM.
The challenge begins at Hukatere on Te Oneroa-a-Tōhē (Ninety Mile Beach) and finishes at PariPari Domain, 163 Foreshore Road, Ahipara. 19
As this race takes place on Te Oneroa-a-Tōhē (Ninety Mile Beach), we recommend 4×4 wheel drive vehicle in order to handle the soft terrain.
The relay is a 6-person team with each team member running a distance of 6km. The changeover will be in accordance with standard rules whereby athletes must touch hands in the designated transition area.
In case of injury or illness during the race which forces the athlete to abandon the competition, the next stage runner may start immediately after an official has verified the situation.
All participants are expected to carry a kumara and every team relay member to collect and carry the additional kumara at each designated station. Teams must All cross over the finish line together. All participants are to “return a kumara” to the Village Pātaka.
Your team must supply their own 4×4 vehicle with a designated team driver who will be there to support the running members by driving along the beach to the start point of each leg.
