Honu, meaning sea turtle in Hawaiian, is the inspiration behind honu therapeutic massage. The sea turtle serves as a symbol of life force, longevity, and spiritual energy. Christine Tauer, owner of Honu Therapeutic Massage in St. Paul, MN and Licensed Massage Therapist, approaches each massage therapy session with the same grace and peace that a sea turtle has gliding through the ocean. Her practice of massage as well as her business name, honu, serve as constant reminders of the place that stole her heart and what she believes is the most beautiful place on Earth, Hawaii. It is Christine’s intention for every client to reach a sense of utopia upon entering honu therapeutic massage, providing clients with the means to slow down, breath, and relax. Relieving stress and pain is the ultimate objective for every client who enters honu's door. The presence, balance, and sense of grounding that is manifested at honu allows clients to be more equipped to take care of themselves and their loved ones.
