A sensorial ritual in the heart of Polynesia
A traditional Polynesian massage is a moment of pure relaxation and well-being. The word for a massage in Tahitian is ‘taurumi‘, which comes from ‘tau‘, meaning to pose, and ‘rumi‘ to smooth deeply. More than a simple massage, the rhythmic movements and perfumed oils used in a taurumi ease the stresses of the mind as well as the body, releasing pent up tension and negative energy and leaving you feeling calm, relaxed and at peace.
A Polynesian massage is performed using monoï oil, which is known for its hydrating and nourishing properties. The massage concentrates on the lines of energy in your body and through rhythmic and fluid massaging techniques you’ll find yourself becoming totally relaxed, both physically and mentally. By the time the taurumi is finished, you’ll feel refreshed and invigorated.
