Balinese is a form of deep massage and is designed to work almost every muscle in the body. This massage helps loosen muscles, ease pain and leads to relaxation. In Balinese massage the therapist may knead or fold the skin to promote the flow of blood, oxygen, and energy throughout the body. The therapist will use a variety of techniques, including acupressure movements, such as press point and palm pressure, and standard massage techniques like sliding, long exploration, short exploration, and kneading. The spa version of this massage is gentler and is focused on relaxation.
