Anything You Need To Know About The Traditional Balinese Massage


People all over the world have recognized Bali as the #1 destination for natural self-healing methods. Bali is not only famous for the ceremonies, sarong, batik prints, and many other ethnic elements. The breathtaking landscape setting also makes this region a haven for a traditional Balinese massage.


The conventional Balinese massage has several unique features like any other Indonesian region. The uniqueness itself does not only rely on the processes and the equipment or tools that the therapists use. Instead, there are a lot more things that we can observe in many traditional Balinese massages, such as the duration, packages and prices, and more.


Here, we will help you navigate through things you need to know about the traditional Balinese massage. More specifically, it’s all about how we do it in Jaens Spa Ubud.


What is the gentleness level for a traditional Balinese massage routine?

This popular Balinese massage is different from Thai massage where the therapists often perform “rough” actions (such as walking on our back, pounding our back with bare hands, and more).


Think about a Balinese massage’s familiarity with Swedish massages. Even though everyday Balinese massage is not as gentle as Swedish massages, the aromatherapy uses are the things that make Balinese massage distinctive from Swedish massages. 


The combination between gentle pressures, acupressures, and aromatherapy uses, creates a relaxing effect that you don’t normally find in other massage categories, including massages in other Indonesian regions.




What are the tools we often find in a traditional Balinese massage?

Aromatherapy is the primary key to the traditional Balinese massage. The frangipani essential oil is the most popular choice of aromatherapy since we can only find it in Bali.


It is not only essential oil that people often relate to romance. Frangipani’s benefit in relaxing the mind and body makes it a perfect match for everyone who is doing a Balinese massage.


Other than an essential oil or massage oil, some Balinese massage therapists use massaging tools in different forms according to how we wish to feel after the therapy. Therapists use the rod-like shape with heavy circular ends to treat soft tissue injuries. 


On the other side, the Y-shaped massaging tool is targeting the person’s body and foot areas. Hence, it makes the Y-shaped massaging tool ideal for relieving fatigue and renewing strengths.

What are the benefits we can get when we get a Balinese massage?

Balinese massage’s primary specialty lies in sports-related problems. For instance, you can relieve your strengths after weightlifting. Alternatively, you can treat yourself with this world-class massage therapy when you feel injury in some areas of the soft tissues.

The Balinese massage therapists’ unique movement flows during the session will ease your everyday stresses. After all, the therapists’ hands move around the areas where the blood is hard to circulate your body systems.

As a result, the traditional Balinese massage detoxifies your blood and blood cells by increasing their consistency in pumping and streaming all around your internal body systems. The detoxification process leaves you feeling nourished and ready to go on through your life.

In addition, you can also relieve your muscle tension and stiffness, even more, when you have a Balinese massage session. The combination of gentle stretches, acupressure, and the use of aromatherapy and massaging tools does not only affect the muscle around your torso and below. 

It also makes your skin’s muscles more flexible. Therefore, it’s not surprising that people who routinely have the Balinese massage session appear several years younger than their actual ages.

What can Jaens Spa Ubud do?

Here, in Jaens Spa Ubud, you can find traditional Balinese massage as one of the primary spa menus. Like any other spa parlors that provide Balinese massage therapy, a one-hour therapy is the most popular choice among customers in our place.

However, we are never content with the ordinary. Even though we can say that a one-hour Balinese massage is more popular in our place, we also provide the two-hours service for an extended authentic and natural Balinese massaging experience.

The one-hour service involves the things you usually see in Balinese massage rituals: Gentle pressure, acupressure, aromatherapy usages, and more. However, you will experience even more fluid and unique massaging movements when you book our two-hours services.

Other places only focus on relieving soft tissue injuries when doing traditional Balinese massage therapy. In Jaens Spa Ubud, you got to choose what you wish to feel. For example, you may want to feel relaxed, renewed, balanced, rescued, or supported. 

The treatment processes will be different based on the feel you wish to feel after the therapy. Consequently, our massage therapist will find you the most suitable aromatherapy and other massaging tools for your Balinese massage experiences.

So, you can expect to find not only the ever-famous frangipani essential oil. Ylang ylang, Asian spice, ginger, and citrus aroma are some of the essential oils you can find in the Balinese massage therapy in Jaens Spa Ubud.

Some final words about the traditional Balinese massage experience in Jaens Spa Ubud 

Jaens Spa’s hourly price also falls in such ranges. However, we sometimes offer you packages with other spa menus. As a result, the Balinese massage price can go even lower without compromising the relaxing quality that our therapists offer.

Many foreigners and local people complement our balancing ability between price and service. Above all, our base office is in Ubud, a Balinese region that people often refer to as heaven for a Balinese spa experience.

Right now, you can visit us in Jalan Raya Pengosekan Ubud, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali. You can also reserve your place before visiting by messaging our WhatsApp number. 

In the meantime, we’ve prepared an at-home service. Once we’ve settled this service, you can book a Balinese massage experience at your home. Then, our therapist will arrive at your front door with complete massaging equipment and tools.
