About / He Whakamārama


“Ruia te kākano kia puāwai ai tātou”  

Sowing the seed of unity so that we can flourish together.

Our team at Pirirakau Hauora, through our commitment to excellence, seek to maximise the health benefits for our whānau, hapū, clients and kaimahi.

We provide the highest quality of service and we recognise that our whānau, hapū, clients and kaimahi are our most valued tāonga and our responsibility.


“Tikina he wai o Te Huhunu kia rongo ai au i te reka o te wai”  

Fetch me the waters of Te Huhunu so that I may taste its sweetness.

Te Huhunu is a spring that in former times supplied the families of Pirirakau with fresh water.  During periods of drought when all other springs had dried up, Te Huhunu continued to flow.  It was said by the old people to contain a special healing mineral that was often craved during times of illness.

This korero has been handed down through the generations to remind us that healing and wellbeing lies within our resources.  It is a communal tāonga that belongs to all the whānau of Pirirakau and of which we all take a collective responsibility.  Pirirakau Hauora has drawn inspiration from this korero to take us into the future so that once again the Te Huhunu spring will provide for our wellbeing.
To once again drink the healing waters of Te Huhunu.
