Te Ara Tika – Quit Smoking – Maramataka

Te Ara Tika is Turuki Health Care’s unique cultural approach helping wāhine to quit smoking.

This free 10-week programme is for wāhine (women) aged between 18-35 years of age living in Auckland who currently smoke.

Programme start date April 13, 2022, and will run via Zoom, every Wednesday.  You can choose, either: 1030am, 7pm, or both!

Participants can receive a $50 PakNSave voucher after attendance to the first 4 sessions*.

Participants can also receive a second $50 PaknSave voucher after attendance of the last 4 sessions* (minimum 8 session attendance). *Sessions – per day calculation, not two sessions in one, that equals one session.

Participants are also eligible to a $200 credit voucher to one of Turuki’s Aronui Services, upon a full attendance record over 10 weeks.

Credit vouchers can be used for either:

  • 1 Day Zoom Wananga (e.g. Te Whare Aio or Romiromi etc.)
  • 1 hour Romiromi/Mirimiri session in person


Wāhine learn ancient mātauranga around nature, atua, moon cycles and the interconnection and insight this gives you, for your emotions and wellbeing. This improved insight helps to quit smoking.
