Ahu Whenua is the recognition that the physical environment, whether natural or engineered/constructed is important in the healing process.

The clinican needs to take into account that the physical environment may be of symbolic or historical value in a sense that only becomes apparent on acquiring knowledge of the history of the whanau, hapu and iwi.

As such, clinical efficiency is served by gaining knowledge and developing some understanding of the historical significance of places in the district of clinical operation.
