Services for wellbeing

Māmā & Pēpi Space

We are thrilled to announce that due to the resounding success of our Māmā & Pēpi day-stay programme, we are currently in the process of enhancing our offerings to better serve you and your pēpi.

As we embark on this journey of improvement, we have made the decision to pause registrations for the current programme. However, we encourage you to register your interest in hearing more about our new and improved programme once it launches. Your feedback and support have been invaluable in shaping the future of our services, and we can’t wait to share exciting updates with you.

If you find yourself in need of support during this transition period, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of the following resources:

The history of Tirohanga

The hard work, vision and generous gift of the Houchen family laid the foundation for the beautiful wellness space you see today. While the years have passed and the site has been transformed, one thing remains constant: Tirohanga will always be a space for pause, restoration, fresh vision and wellness.

Creating a wellbeing space that’s local and personal

Māmā & Pēpi Space

The Māmā & Pēpi space is designed with mothers of babies under six months in mind – it’s the perfect place for retreat and nurturing. Rest and sleep in one of three beautifully designed bedrooms, soak in a private relaxing bath, pause and recharge in the serene gardens, enjoy nourishing food during your stay, receive breastfeeding support and assistance from a lactation consultant and enjoy a relaxing mirimiri massage.

A place to connect with yourself and with others

Connection is critical to wellbeing. At Tirohanga we create spaces and programmes that allow people to strengthen their connections.

Wellbeing that’s right for you and your whānau

We believe that whānau should have access to wellbeing support and services that are right for them. We understand that every person is at a different stage in their wellbeing journey.

Restoring mauri

From the moment you step into Tirohanga you will feel the wairua of this special place. Hear the tui sing and the wind whisper through the trees. Grounded in nature, Tirohanga allows you time to pause and space to renew.
