integrative cancer care
Empowering you to live well
Our mission is to empower everyone in Aotearoa impacted by a cancer diagnosis through evidence-informed mātauranga (knowledge) illuminating the integrative and holistic nature of living well.
We are people helping people.
The Aratika Trust Board embodies the healing power
of working together.
In 2010 a group of women came together in Rotorua, New Zealand to offer hope and complementary care choices to people with cancer. Their goal was to empower people on a healing journey using the principles of integrative medicine. Their organization continues to serve cancer thrivers from all over New Zealand. Along with our volunteers and facilitators we have grown!
You have supported me and given the knowledge, tools and aroha to work at putting harmony in my life instead of insurmountable grief. THANK YOU. The schedules were full and enjoyable. PLEASE KEEP UP the fantastic job of giving.

The last 5 days have been life changing and life giving! Words can barely express the gratitude I feel. I honour Aratika Trust and their knowledge, love, wisdom and beauty. It has been a privilege. As a vet myself, having such a science behind all that was presented and the HUGE depth of knowledge gave me such an amazing base from which to learn from. I also honour the 'realness', humbleness, warmth and openness of all the Trustees - THANK YOU!

Thank you to our Supporters
As a health professional I have done a lot of training and research into the topics covered. I could not fault anything. The quality, care and coherence of what was presented is world class. You could not find something better outside NZ. I whole heartedly recommend the retreat to anyone on a cancer journey.
