Way of Life Health Shops current status

Way Of Life Health Shop

We have been very busy at Way of Life as you all prepared for lockdown. Many people asked us if we would be staying open, as many of you consider us an essential business. Up until now, we haven't been able to give you a clear answer. We are NOT considered an essential business, as many of the products that we stock are available in supermarkets and pharmacies. Therefore as of today we are closed. If any patients under the care of our practitioners urgently require practitioner products or herbal medicines unavailable elsewhere, then you may contact us and we will organise phone payment and product pickup from outside the shop. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS FOR URGENT SITUATIONS ONLY!
We thank you all for your custom and support in these very unusual times, and we ask you to stay safe and enjoy your enforced rest.

The Story of Surfdale

The Team from Auckland Museum

Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...

At 8 pence a day on top of a small deposit, a Surfdale section was also promoted as a sound investment – so close to downtown Auckland that “values must go up and up and up”.

Well, they weren't wrong there.

Today, Waiheke Island brings to mind sunny vineyards and beachy weekend getaways. The image of Waiheke as an “island paradise” has its origins in 1920s marketing, but the island has long been desirable even as its character has changed over the past centuries.

As we go into the long weekend and begin to venture further afield again, why not have a read of how Waiheke came to be the place it is today, in this blog about its recent history by our Project Curator, Jane Groufsky.

Living the dream

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

It's inspirational to meet a family that's taken the plunge to leave the rat race and establish themselves in the country. This couple not only managed to keep their jobs, but also build a stunning house on the Coromandel Peninsula that has caught the eye of NZIA judges.
