  • 60 New Zealand dollars
  • Coco's Cantina, 376 Karangahape Road, Auckland CBD

Service Description

Steaming our ’Taiawa’ and ‘Whare Tangata’ was an ancient practice of indigenous women worldwide. They understood the benefits of this practice for all sorts of ailments and energetic clearing. More importantly our Tūpuna Kuia also used this healing practice as they knew the benefits it created for our wellbeing ā Wairua, ā Tinana, ā Hinengaro and also the importance of healing this area for the continuation of whakapapa. We will be offering an opportunity for wāhine to come and experience this ritual in a community setting that is safe, held and shared. We are really grateful to Damaris for offering the Coco’s private function space upstairs for us to gather, kōrero and wānanga. We have four different appointment times offering three to four spaces per appointment time: 10am / 11am / 12pm and 1pm The exchange is $60.00 per wahine per session. These are 45min Sessions and include: A short wānanga with kōrero around Whakapapa, Rongoā Rākau and Connection. 15-20min Taiawa Steam. Which will include a roopu guided meditation and each wāhine will steam with rongoā specifically formulated for your needs. Reflection and feedback space and then Clean Up. We will be steaming in a roopu setting so if you are a bit whakamā maybe gather some of your sista’s, and book and steam together! It’s really fun, and could be a really beautiful way to spend time nurturing and healing together with your beautiful sista’s. Wāhine that maybe UNABLE to Steam in this Environment (Contra-indicators) 1. If you currently have your ‘Ikura’ or are heavily bleeding.. 2. If you are hapu, as it’s safer for you and bubs to wait til you’re post partum (afterbirth) 3. IF you are trying to become hapu and maybe could be - it’s safer not to steam. 4. If you have a history of bleeding twice in one month and have had this happen in the past three months. 5. IF you have a burning type rash currently - we don’t wanti to increase the irritation more with heat. There are options for woman who fall into these Contra-indicators categories but this particular setting may not be suitable to what you need.
