Balinese massage is a traditional form of manual therapy originating from the island of Bali, Indonesia. This massage technique combines elements of traditional Chinese medicine, Indian Ayurvedic medicine and Balinese massage techniques.
Deep techniques: Balinese massage involves the use of deep movements and intense pressure to reach deep layers of muscles and tissues.
Combining techniques: Balinese massage combines elements from various traditional systems of medicine, including Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurveda.
Use of oils: During Balinese massage, warm and aromatic oils are used to help relax and facilitate the movement of the therapist's hands over the skin.
Working on pressure points: The Balinese massage therapist applies pressure to certain energy points or acupuncture points, known as "sen" in Balinese tradition.
Massage offers a number of health and wellness benefits, including:
Deep relaxation: Balinese massage techniques help release tension and stress built up in muscles and tissues, inducing a general state of deep relaxation and calm.
Reduction of muscle and joint pain: Balinese massage uses deep strokes and intense pressure to reach the deep layers of the muscles and relieve muscle and joint pain, improving mobility and flexibility.
Stimulate blood circulation: Through the movements and pressure applied during massage, blood circulation can be improved, helping to deliver oxygen and essential nutrients to tissues and organs. This contributes to cell regeneration and better functioning of the circulatory system.
Release toxins: Balinese massage facilitates the elimination of toxins from the body by stimulating the lymphatic flow and waste elimination system. This promotes detoxification and cleansing of the body.
Improve flexibility and mobility: The stretching and joint manipulation techniques used in Balinese massage help to improve joint flexibility and mobility, thus helping to prevent injury and maintain a more agile body.
Mental relaxation and anxiety reduction: Balinese massage has a calming and relaxing effect on the nervous system, helping to reduce anxiety and stress levels.
Boosting the immune system: By reducing stress and improving circulation, Balinese massage supports the immune system, thus contributing to better resistance against disease and infection.
