In the bush
Puravita Health Studio
The health studio from where we practice Naturopathy and Massages is located in Matapouri, Northland, New Zealand, precisely at 1 km South of the beach-side village of Matapouri and 5 km North of Tutukaka. It is situated at the end of a valley, which is the river Parangara'ahu estuary. Surrounded by tea-trees and raupo, visited only by birds and the occasional horse, it is a quiet and relaxing space to help you find peace and wellbeing in unison with Nature.
Parangara'ahu bird sanctuary and the Dome
Our home is in Matapouri, on the Tutukaka Coast, 3 hours north of Auckland.
The Dome is our place, on a piece of land called Parangara'ahu, from the name of the creek flowing inside it. It is a self-sustained home alimented by solar panels and fed by rain water.
Kiwis get regularly released and monitored in this piece of tranquil forest.
Our land is found along the path of the Te Araroa trail, a 3000 km route stretching from the far north of the North Island of New Zealand to the far South of the South Island, and considered the “greatest New Zealand Adventure”.
From our home we can see the Poor Knights Islands, a famous marine reserve with thousands of fish and beautiful kelp.
We are 15 minutes away from the most beautiful beaches with perfect waves for surfing.
Directions on how to get to the studio:
Driving North towards Matapouri, just at the beginning of the flats after the descent from Tutukaka windy road, and 1 km before arriving at the village of Matapouri itself, you will find an intersection on the main Matapouri rd: Right to Langman lane and Left to Pullman lane. Take the left turn and drive on the main Pullman lane road bordering a pasture-marshy area for about 400 m. You will find a gate with Kiwi protection sign and a blue sign indicating Puravita. Enter through the gate and drive for about 200 m until you find a road going uphill to the left. Drive up and park in front of the cabin.
