M A - U R I is the modern form of an ancient medium, which is
centered on health, healing and self-development.
It was developed and named by Hemi Hoani
Fox who has his roots in Maori. He, together with Katja Fox,
has been working in Denmark and New-Zealand, in the MA-URI
Institute since 1990 on discovering the new ways and deeper
meanings of this medium.
The name refers to Lemuria, the ancient continent in the Pacific,
where, according to the myth, the people of the secret power, the
Light Beings settled five thousand years ago, and conveyed the
ancient knowledge, the high-level spiritual technique: how to
achieve the harmony of the body, mind and soul with the power of
energy and thoughts; the secrets, ethics and morals of HUNA.
The kahunas - similarly to other, ancient shamanistic cultures -
involved all three levels of consciousness in the healing process
- which is rather self healing -, and often intensified it with
The person who was receiving the massage received also stimuli
which he or she could perceive on the physical level with his or
her sensory organs, e.g. smoke, washing with aromatic plants or
herbal infusions, which I also use myself if necessary, and I
also give herbal infusions and elixir (water cleaned with semi
precious stones) to drink before and after the massage. I like
using it, always living with this tool, and in addition I also
use Bach flower therapy and crystal healing.
Verbal suggestion and awareness raising is necessary for the
patient's clearing process, in order to dissolve the necessity
for hurting him/herself or others, lift him/her to harmony, and
thus delete this kind of fixation.
After the clearing, the kahuna (Maori shaman) drew down enormous
amounts of MANA, and after this, creating in his mind the very
strong picture of the post-healing condition, sent this to the
superior Self of the patient, asking for its help. The massage was concluded after
visualizing the healed conditions during the whole
process, accompanied by the sending of energy. Then the superior
SELF started to interfere, and the healing process began.
During the massage, the kahuna gave orders several times,
whispering or speaking out loud, for complete healing, by using
all his/her powers…"You are healthy, get up and
walk"… I completed module III, so I use the kahuna
teachings and rituals with pleasure and efficiency.
The roots of MA-URI go back to ancient Polynesian bases that
focus on the dynamic and creative approach of life where we can
develop the skills to direct all areas of our own life.
MA-URI and KAHI-LOA massages mean
actually the healing touch; these are the different methods of
Polynesian bodywork which serve, from different approaches, together
or separately, the same primary purpose: to live our everyday
lives in the center of our being, consciously, in harmony and in
The massage is: movement, touching, which covers the whole body
except the intimate areas, the dynamic use of rhythm in unity,
connected to the steps of ritual dances. A constant flow; with
the slow and constant movement of the forearms, it activates the
memories stored in the body, mind and soul of the person
receiving the massage; activates, cleanses and fills up the
internal self-healing powers. A balance in male and female
energies, interaction - this is the secret to happy and
It is a wonderful medium, exceptional and gentle but also
challenging and provocative. It means meeting and facing
ourselves, our dependencies, all unsolved problems that we store
in ourselves. It is an effective tool to relieve stress and
process traumatic memories. It is an inner JOURNEY for the
patient in UNITY where the masseuse is the navigator.
MA-URI has no age limits; it can be given to the old, to children
and also to pregnant women.
•Cleanses the body through freeing up blood circulation and
•It relieves stress, tension, anxiety, complexes,

• Promotes relaxation, relieves muscle stress, makes joints

• Regulates metabolism;
• Relieves the diseases not only in the skeletal system but
also in internal body organs, including chronic diseases ;
• Creates a balance of energies in the body;
• Harmonizes the right and left brain hemisphere.
We use astral massage when the physical body cannot be massaged.
The main reasons for this can be:
• Skin diseases;
• Extended open wounds;
The point of this massage is the effect to the astral body. Our
physical body is surrounded by energetic layers, so-called fine
• the ethereal body,
• the emotional (astral) body,
• the mental body and
• the spiritual body.
These layers overlap one another and are closely connected but
each of them has its own frequency. If we establish harmony in
the astral body, this harmony affects all the other layers,
including the physical body where it restores health. The patient
is lying on his/her back on a massage table and the masseuse
makes a ritual dance around the table. It takes about third the
time of a physical massage; still, its effect is very quick and
spectacular. Astral massage is also recommended for children.
