Traditional Maori Healing Techniques.  "Te Oomai-reia" is Magical in its format. It's healing and delivery is powerful and positive. 

I use a range of healing and bodywork modalities and specialise in traditional Māori healing - Te Oomai Reia. The knowledge of 'Te Oomai Reia' is traditional Maori knowledge that has been passed down through the generations of ancestors to our teacher, Papa Hohepa Delamere. We feel honoured and privileged to have been his Tauira - students. He asked for only one thing in return; that we share this knowledge with others. Papa Delamere has given his blessing for us to use and teach 'Te Oomai Reia' to help other people. Papa has shared these teachings with many different cultures around the world as well.

Mirimiri, Koo Miri, Taa Miri, me Romiromi releases negative energies, physical, psychological and even generational pain that is trapped in the cellular memory of the body. It is particularly effective with couples seeking infertility treatment as well as mental health workers and their clients.  Mirimiri, Koo Miri, Taa Miri, me Romiromi hoki - is an ancient practice of Tohunga which clears, releases and re-energizes one's entire being. This unique modality releases negative energies, physical, psychological and even generational pain that is trapped in the cellular memory of the body. This has been particularly effective with couples seeking infertility treatment as well as mental health workers and their clients.

 

Mirimiri is the spiritual healing process that clears any unnecessary energies that may block the healing process. In this context, Mirimiri is the spiritual healing process that works on all four dimensions. It connects the practitioner to the 12th heaven that the ancestor 'Tāne' climbed to get the three kete of knowledge. The practising Tohunga links in to the vibrations of the Divine creator, greets the ancestors and kaitiaki of the whai-ora in question then clears any unnecessary energies that may block this part of the healing process. The next stage is to use intuitive diagnostics in preparation for Koo Miri.

 

Koo Miri uses vibrational sound to bring about shifts and changes through the use of takutaku - prayerful songs to change the vibrations and facilitate an opportunity to let old memories go.  Koo Miri is a counsellling process whereby the practitioner converses with the whai-ora to explore the 'core' emotional experiences behind the physical, psychological or mental ailments that are affecting their well being. It is also a means of using vibrational sound to bring about shifts and changes through the use of takutaku - prayerful songs. Whai-ora have often held on to experiences for many years and are encouraged to let these memories go as they can stop you from attaining your full potential to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Using the whatumanawa - intuitive diagnostics, the practitioner can facilitate an opportunity for whaiora to identify their issues and let them go. Where resistance is found, the practitioner can use takutaku to change the vibrations and work with the whai-ora to effect the changes necessary to bring about holistic wellbeing.

 

Taa Miri is an intuitive diagnosis to read trauma, negative energies, emotional pain, physical and psychological pain or even generational pain trapped in the body and sometimes through the family lines.  Taa Miri is about reading and listening to the body. Trauma, negative energies, emotional pain, physical and psychological pain or even generational pain can be trapped in the cellular memory of the body. The trained Tohunga practitioner can literally see where these painful experiences are sitting on the body and which bones may have come out of alignment because of it. For e.g. hip bones out caused by an imbalance of the male and female roles in life or the legs may be sore which is usually about a lack of direction in life. There are many more parts of the body that our practitioners are trained to see.

 

Romiromi is the last stage of the 'Te Oomai Reia' spiritual process that uses a deep tissue bodywork to open and release experiences that are trapped in the cellular memory and cause emotional and physical blockages in the body. The energy in the body therefore begins to flow again.  Romiromi is the last stage of the 'Te Oomai Reia' process. The experiences that are trapped in the cellular memory can cause emotional and physical blockages in the body. Our practitioners carry out deep tissue work using their elbows, knees, feet, greenstone, wood and sea water to clear and open these blocked energy points and chakras in the body. The techniques used enable the energy to flow once again through the entire body hence facilitating an opportunity for whai-ora to release of a life time of experiences from the body. The transformations are absolutely amazing. Hence this work is very sacred to our culture.
 


The following excerpt was written by Papa Delamere:

 

The Traditional Maori Healing Techniques

"Te Whai Tika Kia Ora Ko Te Tinana"


Te Whai Tika Kia Ora Ko Te Tinana is the correcting of the body with deep tissue energy release. Deeper than what is already understood by the term 'deep tissue'.
Converting spiritual energy with universal acquaintance, used with neutral force, distributed by human communication which gives us as Māori our difference. Maintaining the work done in this manner is complimented by other methods of massage available today along with our ancient medicines that aid in healing.

The ancient Māori referred to this method of healing as:

"TE OOMAI-REIA"


The use of natural tools with mystique and their coded messages were in the ancient prayers and songs used for healing. Calling upon their skills from the Gods and Ancestors who have and still travel the road leading to 'Te Reinga Mutunga Kore!'

Our spiritual homeland for Māori is also the place in which all our Knowing and Understanding is held and kept. All this knowledge is Cosmic, Atmospheric, and Earthly and always at the center of this healing. The knowledge and skills of this healing is often taught from birth.

"Te Oomai-reia" is Magical in its format. Its healing and delivery is powerful and positive. All who wish to learn are welcome.
