As well as hosting exhibitions and workshops, LUMEN Studios & Gallery is home to natural health practitioner Corryn Baxter-Pryce from Olive’s Branch Medicine offers Herbal Medicine, Traditional Healing (Rongoā, Romiromi, Mirimiri), massage (light and deep tissue) and Jin Shin (Japanese acupressure).
Join Corryn on a rongoā hikoi around the ngāhere and maara to discover medicinal properties of the plants and trees. Bring a curious mind open to the bounty of what Papatūānuku shares with us. You will also receive a sample of panipani (ointment) to take home with you.
Corryn Pryce-Baxter was born in Wales and started her journey at a young age with plants and Spirit learning from her Grandmother. For the past 12 years Corryn has been working with traditional Māori Rongoā which she learnt from her mother-in-law Kuia Olive Bullock and her sister Kuia Sue Jones from Nukumaru. Corryn's medicines are a beautiful synthesis of Welsh and Māori medicine made in accordance with ancient spiritual protocols.
