This is our Signature Balinese Massage at Baliayu Spa Sanctuary!

A Balinese Massage is a full-body, deep-tissue, holistic treatment that combines acupressure, reflexology, stretching and aromatherapy to stimulate circulation, ease muscular and joint pain, and bring a sense of well being, calm and deep relaxation.


A Balinese massage uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and “qi” (energy) around your body, and bring deep relaxation and wellness. An ancient technique, Balinese massage uses a variety of techniques including skin rolling, kneading and stroking, acupressure and reflexology; essential oils will relax and soothe you.

Balinese massage is a rigorous and luxurious spa treatment and a great one to choose if you want to experience a variety of massage techniques, relax and feel spiritually renewed at the same time. Balinese massage is related to the Ayurveda, the Indian holistic medical system. A relaxation massage with attitude, this treatment will boost your circulation and give you a deep tissue and muscular massage as well.

What is a Balinese massage good for?

A Balinese massage works deeply to soothe damaged tissue, and relieve strained muscles and joint pain. The boost to your circulation will help reduce stress and re-balance your body. Because it works very deeply into the tissue, as well as boosting circulation and harnessing acupressure and reflexology techniques, Balinese massage is a highly effective treatment for sports injuries. Balinese massage aims to help with a wide range of ailments, including migraine, muscle and joint pain, sleep disorder, stress, anxiety or depression, as well as allergies and breathing problems such as asthma. The use of oils is calming and sensual and leaves you feeling relaxed and serene.

Before you go

Prepare to feel smothered in relaxation, as this treatment soothes you from every direction. You really should wallow in this massage – make sure you have enough time to get to the spa or treatment room beforehand, to get settled, and enough time afterwards to luxuriate in the feelings you’ll be left with afterwards. You should wear loose-fitting clothing or simply judiciously placed towels, as the therapist will need to access your whole body at different stages in the massage. On a practical level, bear in mind that some essential oils stain – you’re probably better off wearing towels or a robe for this treatment.

Precautions It’s a good idea to tell your therapist if you:

  • are, or think you might be, pregnant
  • have joint or limb pain
  • have recently had surgery or any other injury
  • have high/low blood pressure or a history of heart problems
  • have any other medical conditions or are receiving any form of treatment as this may affect the kind of oils and massage that is appropriate for you.
