Description

Te Ara Manaaki translates to "pathway to care". We at Te Ara Manaaki Pharmacy believe in a holistic approach to healthcare; you are not just your medication to us!

We believe in:

  • taha hinengaro – mental health and emotions
  • taha wairua – spiritual health
  • taha tinana – physical health
  • taha whānau – whānau as the epicentre of one's wellbeing.

Because we understand this, we know ‘feeling unwell’ does not just mean you need medication; sometimes a koorero, aroha and awhina is enough.

Come see us at Te Ara Manaaki Pharmacy for all your usual and unusual pharmacy needs!

Please don't hesitate to contact us directly if you have any questions.
