Massage is an integral element of family life in Indonesia and forms part of a natural health system similar to Ayurveda.
This is a full body massage treatment using techniques handed down by healers to restore health and re-balance the body.
The coconut tree is considered to be the tree of life and coconut oil is commonly used for Balinese massage . I use best quality virgin oil blended with ginger to give warmth to its cooling properties and aid relaxation and deep tissue work.
The massage begins dry with compression and myofascial stretches to warm up the tissues and ease tension in the body followed by skin rolling to release fascial restrictions and acupressure to unblock stagnant energy.
Deep tissue work then follows to release strain patterns within the muscles, ease joint pain and strip out blocked energy. Traditionally coins were used to run along the energy lines, a method believed to be highly effective in releasing toxins. Eastern cultures believe feeling pain during a treatment is a positive sign of the effectiveness of the massage and that the body will heal itself much faster. This massage has been adapted to work within your pain threshold!
This is a great treatment for those who prefer a stronger, firmer massage as well as sports people and those who suffer from chronic muscle tension, poor circulation, low energy, depression or IBS.
You will usually feel relaxed and energized after one treatment. For optimal results regular treatments are recommended.
Using Frangipani oil –
- Frangipani is also associated with love in feng shui.
- In modern Polynesian culture, the frangipani can be worn by women to indicate their relationship status – over the right ear if seeking a relationship, and over the left if taken.
- In India the frangipani is a symbol of immortality because of its ability to produce leaves and flowers even after it has been lifted out of the soil. It is often planted near temples and graveyards, where the fresh flowers fall daily upon the tombs.
- In Vietnam the frangipani is used for its healing qualities: the bark, mashed in alcohol, prevents skin inflammation, it is also used to treat indigestion and high blood pressure, while the roots have purgative effects on animals and the milk-like sap serves as a balm for skin diseases. The white flowers are used in traditional medicine to cure high blood pressure, haemophilia, cough, dysentery and fever.
