It is an oil-based, predominantly using a style of deep tissue massage, performed on a soft mat, floor or table using aromatherapy oils. The massage uses deep tissue movements and gentle strokes, combined with long kneading strokes, cross-fibre mobilisation, acupressure and stretching. It is a combination of different techniques that the Balinese have adapted and created their own unique style. This massage is not a delicate one; you can feel it deep in your muscles. The result is the release of tense muscles, leading to relief of stress, improvement of circulation and promotion of harmony on all levels.
Traditional Balinese massage stimulates the flow of blood, oxygen and ‘qi’ (energy) around your body, bringing deep relaxation and wellness. Throughout the massage aromatherapy oils are used to soothe, help relieve muscular tension, and balance subtle energies for a heightened sense of well being. Also deep pressure manipulation with medium-depth strokes and pressure points is used to reach below the superficial muscle layers. This massage is rigorous and lavish, that aims to bring the body and mind in full synchronisation of optimal health, well being, tranquillity and spiritual renewal. The Balinese massage also can be combined with other treatments like body scrubs & body wraps for completed indulgence.
