Balinese massage therapy is an alternative technique which involves locating pressure points along the Meridian Lines through kneading and manipulating soft tissue. This therapy helps prevent sports injuries, treat existing injuries, improve performance, reduce stress and free the body from toxins. This form of therapy is a ‘hands on’ treatment using a combination of massage and stretching, which strengthens and releases the soft tissue (muscles, fascia and tendons) and increases the range of movement in joints.
Balinese massage works on the twelve Meridian Lines running through the body, with each Meridian related to different functions and parts of the body. According to ancient Oriental teachings of healing, energy runs along these lines. This energy flow or ki (pronounced chee) is the life force of the body.
This massage type will help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, Balinese Massage Therapy can assist in a quick and effective recovery. Above all, Balinese massage can help prevent niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement for the athlete, ardent keep-fit devotee or the occasional exercise enthusiast.
Balinese massage therapy is not just for the sports person. Anyone can benefit from it whether suffering from poor circulation and low energy, tiredness, depression or lethargy, Balinese Massage can assist with recovery. It is a deeper and more intense massage which involves stretching, compression, friction, toning and trigger point response techniques.
