Taurumi Mind and Body
This uniquely harmonizing ritual has been inspired by the culture of Polynesian massage and its deep understanding of touch.

The ritual begins with a softening skin brush and body scrub with refreshing spearmint and aloe polish and a centering pressure point scalp massage. Once body and mind are prepared, the Polynesian-inspired massage begins, using a unity of ancient and modern techniques embracing the concept of taurumi, meaning “health in the hands.” A warmed oil blended with local monoi and extracts of fragrant kahaia is used, transporting you to a deep state of relaxation. Specialized pressure and stretching movements connect the mind, body, heart and soul.
