The old saying goes that your body is a temple. But sometimes, our temple can start to feel sluggish, tense and experience a whole host of different pain. When this happens, the worst thing you can do is ignore it and try to carry on with life in discomfort.
Understanding the types of treatments available to you to relieve tension, stress and muscle pain is key to ensuring that you look after your body as best as you can. Undergoing a deep tissue massage treatment, such as a Balinese massage, may well be the best course of action for you. A Balinese massage essentially allows clients to reestablish the harmony between their mind and their body through gentle muscle stimulation, aromatherapy oils and reflexology.
What is a Balinese massage?
A Balinese massage is an experience like no other- a holistic, full-body massage that envelops deep into tissue and muscle. Originating from the Indonesian province of Bali, the Balinese massage combines gentle acupressure with aromatherapy and reflexology and is used as a means of improving circulation, treating muscle pain and alleviating the effects of anxiety and depression.
Deep tissue stimulation fixes damaged tissue and relieves pain within the joints and muscles. Gentle reflexological stretches enhance the client’s flexibility while acupressure techniques relieve tension and release built-up energy within the body. The massage targets the whole body from head to toe and areas that are yet to be massaged are covered to preserve energy.
How can a Balinese massage help me?
Renowned for being an effective treatment for those suffering from anxiety, stress and depression, Balinese massages are also effective as far as ailments such as migraines and sleeping difficulties are concerned.
Acupressure, an ancient technique that soothes pain and rebalances energy around the body, allows for a calming procedure that, when combined with aromatherapy oils, can have a positive effect on the mind and on the respiratory system. In combination, the practice leaves customers feeling relaxed, calm and ready to face the day head-on, without any discomfort or unwanted pain.
Massage therapists use specific oils for each area of the body, including vegetable oils such as jojoba, sesame and coconut oil. Ylang-ylang and rose oils are used as scented essential oils. Part of the appeal of a Balinese massage is that some of the oils, more specifically frangipani essential oils, can only be found on the island of Bali itself – they are very rare oils that have the reputation for boosting the mood.
