Balinese and Asian massage techniques are renowned the world over for their relaxing and rebalancing benefits. Experience our unique selection of practices that combine authentic manual therapies and pure essential oils to boost circulation and wellbeing.
The unique techniques that comprise traditional Balinese massage are passed down through the generations. Full body massage combines stretching, long strokes, skin rolling and palm and thumb pressure techniques. Choose one of four restorative massage oils:
• Grounding: ‘Bali Spice’ with clove, ginger, fennel and vetivert
• Calming: ‘Peace of Bali’ with sandalwood, ylang ylang and ginger
• Uplifting: ‘Bali Sunrise’ with lemon ylang ylang and bergamot
• Purifying: Virgin coconut oil
To balance the yin and yang energy within, known in Bali as rwa binada, warm and cool marble stones are used to massage specific areas of the body, providing relief and relaxation. Swopping between the two opposing temperatures dilates and constricts the blood vessels, in turn exercising the capillaries and relaxing the muscles.
Drawing on Indonesia’s eastern influences, this earthy, grounding massage works on the meridians and acupressure points to bring physical reaffirmation. Hot marigold and lavender salt compresses and warm river stones soothe and energise, while a blend of five essential oils balances the body’s five elements, restoring energy, relaxing the nervous system and evoking a feeling of contentment.
This massage is an effective way to assist with muscle relaxation. It is designed to increase flexibility, relieve muscle tightness and improve circulation. For best results, warm your muscles in the steam room and sauna prior to the massage.
Kundalini Back Massage
Ideal for depleted bodies and souls, this nurturing treatment profoundly restores the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Focused massage and sound healing activate and channel the Kundalini – the dormant energy at the base of the spine: tension and negativity are lifted; and a state of balance and awareness is returned. Great for jet lag or all-round ‘soothing’... and a pre-cursor to the ‘Chakra Ceremonies’ at our sister spa: The Sacred River Spa at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan.
Aura-Soma Chakra Balance Massage®
The Balinese know only too well the principles of Sekala and Niskala - the seen and unseen - neither of which exists without the other. So too in this sensitive yet powerful experience, which uses the wisdom of the Aura-Soma® colour system. The balancing massage brings harmony to both the seen and unseen forces of nature. Aura-Soma® oils, crystals, sound and breath come together to communicate harmony, truth and integrity. More than physical - it's a soul-deep experience.
This targeted treatment combines Indian-style head, neck and shoulder massage with reflexology for the feet and hands. Firm pressure eases muscle tension to improve blood flow, returning the body to a healthier equilibrium and decreasing the stresses of fast-paced city lives.
Anti Cellulite Massage
A unique massage technique using strong kneading, tapotement and Chinese suction cups on cellulite-affected areas to eliminate stagnation, intensify metabolism and dermal respiration, and improve skin elasticity. ila Body Oil for Vital Energy (containing argan oil, juniper berry, geranium and lemongrass) helps stimulate and release excess fluid.
Experience the deeply restorative benefits of two therapists working in unison. Submit to the healing powers of four hands massaging the body in seamless coordination as tension is relieved and muscles stretched using a blend of synchronised massage techniques from East and West.
Mother to be
This nourishing and harmonising treatment combines a herb poultice massage with rosehip seed and Argan oil (infused with extracts of lavender, geranium and rose) to replenish dry skin, remove excess fluid and gently relieve aches and pains. An optional body scrub with blackcurrant seed, honey and Himalayan salt gently adds lustre to the skin.
