Balinese Massage

What is balinese massage?

Balinese massage was developed in the Indonesian province of Bali, with influence from the traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia.

Balinese massage techniques include acupressure, skin rolling and flicking, firm and gentle stroking, percussion, and application of essential oils.The practitioner may also apply stone massage. The combination of manual therapy and aromatherapy is intended for relaxation, loosening fascial restrictions, and stimulating the lymphatic system and the flow of blood and qi.

Five biggest benefits of receiving a Balinese massage

It promotes activation of blood circulation in your body

Poor blood circulation brings us a myriad of health discomforts like fluid retention in our appendages. The trained masseuse focuses on areas of congestion and applies acupressure on these areas, moving the blood through the congested areas, allowing new blood to flow in once the pressure has been released. This action results in lowered blood pressure and overall improves bodily functions.

It makes for better lymphatic system functions and natural drainage

When lymph fluids do not drain well, lactic acid accumulates in the muscles and causes us to feel fatigue and bodily aches.

The masseuse squeezes and pulls the skin, and this action flushes lactic acid from the muscles. Lymph fluid starts to circulate, removing metabolic waste from the muscles and internal organs. With an effective lymphatic system, the muscles relax easier, helping us to feel more energized.

It helps to combat muscle and joint pain, improving mobility and muscle tone

We have all been through a phase of working out extraneously and suffering from sore muscles the next day, or not working out at all and experiencing stiff joints when getting out of bed or from prolonged sitting.

Balinese massages include stretching movements, which improves blood circulation and increases blood flow. This extra blood flowing in our body warms us and eases the pains, tightness, soreness and stiffness in our joints and muscles, resulting in better mobility. Researchers also believe that Balinese massages trigger a release of natural painkillers called Opioids, in the brain, blocking our pain receptors, making for an effective alternative to conventional pain medicine for persistent body aches.

The stretching motion also creates a mild stretch reflex, and over time this could create better muscle tone.

It helps in alleviating allergies and other respiratory problems

Some people suffer from common allergies caused by multiple factors, like changes in climate, dust, or pollen. Sneezing, coughing and asthma are common symptoms of allergies.

The masseuse targets the acupressure points on the face, warming the muscles. When this happens, the lymph nodes are stimulated to open and improves circulatory and lymphatic flow, ergo improving the respiratory system.

And finally, it calms you and weakens states of anxiety and/or depression.

With the improved circulation of blood throughout the body and draining of lymph fluid, we feel more relaxed post massage.

The massage increases the flow of oxytocin, our “happy” hormone. Given that we are now relaxed, calm and content, our stress and tension melting away, we now find the ability to sleep better. Consequently, this helps to improve our concentration and memory power, avoiding the stress and tension that brings with it headaches and migraines.
