It is a strong and intense massage that acts in depth on the muscles, relieving the muscular pains and tensions. It is made on a mat on the floor.
The therapist uses long sliding and pressure movements made with the fingers and palms on the meridian lines of the body, in addition to rolling movements on the muscles.
Similar to other massage techniques, Balinese massage seeks to achieve a deep state of relaxation of body and mind. What distinguishes it is that the Balinese believe that to achieve this high state of relaxation, blood and oxygen must flow freely, as well as the flow of energy, unrestrained by the body.
