What’s better than learning Thai Massage in Thailand, Javanese Massage on Java, Ayurveda in India, and of course, Balinese Massage on Bali? Well, perhaps the place of origin isn’t always the best choice to study, but at least it will certainly make for an interesting and enriching cultural experience.
Balinese Massage is a full body, deep tissue massage and Bali’s signature massage treatment. It uses a combination of techniques from China, India, Sweden, and the Indonesian Islands Java and Bali. The modality uses a broad variety of techniques such as for instance palming, skin rolling and flicking, thumb circles, effleurage and strokes, knuckle slides, acupressure, reflexology, kneading, forearm slides, Kecak, thumbing, and chopping (percussions).
Practitioners may also apply hot or warm stone massage and aromatherapy elements using a variety of scented oils.
On the island of Bali it doesn’t lack trainers that offer Balinese Massage courses and classes. Offerings are quite diverse – from one-day workshops, to five-day courses, to weeks or even months of massage training integrated in complete Spa Therapist programs with international accreditation, such as ITEC, VTCT and CIBTAC.
In any case, below we have listed the massage schools, spa academies, and the like that offer Balinese Massage courses and workshops in their programs. You will find most of the trainers around Sanur, Ubud, Denpasar, Kuta, and Nusa Dua.
