Healing Bodywork

At Maya Tulum Resort, we honor the ancient Mayan culture that draws us to this magic place on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Healing was an important part of the Mayan culture and that tradition lives on today in many of our therapeutic treatments rooted in ancient inspiration.

From facials, wraps, and bodywork to specialty Mayan treatments, we offer spectacular spa services to fit every guest’s needs.

Reflexology is based on the existence of reflex points in different parts of the body that correspond to the organs and glands of the organism. These points are worked through pressure and systematic movements usually performed with the fingers, which will produce a reflex response in the corresponding organs with whom they are intimately related. This reboots our internal environment, activating the mechanisms of self-healing that every human body encompasses.

Warm, oiled stones are expertly applied to align and harmonize the chakras (energy centers) of the body. The heat from the stones works in conjunction with traditional massage strokes and helps the essential oils (carefully selected to correspond with each chakra) penetrate deep into the body and induce a profound state of relaxation and well-being. The heat from the stones requires less pressure from the masseuse, so a meditative state is often reached early in the session.

Mayan Specialties

Based on centuries-old Mayan healing practices, most of these treatments are exclusive to Maya Tulum and are not offered anywhere else in the world. Each session begins with a purifying ritual to harmonize the body, mind, and spirit, using a burning Mayan sacred tree resin called copal.

All sessions are 80 minutes unless specified.

This treatment uses xunan kaab (zoo-nan carb), locally produced “virgin honey” famed for its medicinal attributes. First, a gentle sea salt exfoliation leaves your skin silky and soft.  Next, a warm honey back massage deeply detoxifies the body through the blood and at the same time revitalizes and balances the hormonal system. A relaxing full body oil massage completes the experience.

A refreshing dip in the ocean rinses off the clay, then a brief gentle relaxing back massage with essential oils completes this lovely treatment.

Maya Tulum Resort offers an on-site Temazcal (Sweat Lodge), where local healers perform body & soul-cleansing Indigenous ceremonies. This universal ritual benefits the body and the soul, balancing your mind and emotions for inner peace and harmony.

This traditional temazcal (teh-mahz-cal) ceremony was designed to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being through a purging of physical and emotional toxins. You will be within the actual temazcal (clay steam dome) for about 70 minutes.

A spiritual guide will help you to open your heart to ancestral visions, while releasing stress and detoxifying the body through series of four guided meditations accompanied by chanting and ancient music.

During this time, a tea made by soaking fresh herbs is splashed over heated volcanic rocks to produce powerful, fragrant steam. As your body begins to relax and detoxify, you will begin to experience a connection with Mother Earth through a series of four guided meditations accompanied by chanting and ancient music, each oriented to a different cardinal point. At the end of each guided meditation, the door of the temazcal is opened to welcome in the energy of the next cardinal point.

Minimum 6/maximum 14 people. 120 minutes  $70 per person
Private Temazcal ceremonies are available upon request.
