Indonesian Deep Tissue Massage

Indonesian deep tissue massage is a combination of Javanese and Balinese massage, similar to Ayurvedic massage and dating back almost as far as Chinese massage. It could be regarded as the original holistic method. This is an oil-based massage that originated as an ancient system of healing with a history of over 300 years in Indonesia.

Indonesian deep tissue massage differs from Swedish massage in that it is delivered to expel the wind element by using compression and deep palm movements.

This is a firm massage delivered using forearms, knuckles, heels of hands and thumbs, lots of body weight to push deeply into the tissue. Thumb kneading is used everywhere to give the ultimate muscle fascia release. Manipulations using stretches, pulls and twists are used to great effect to ease muscle and joint pain, working along the body’s energy meridians to breakdown tensely knotted muscles and to stimulate the body’s lymphatic system into releasing its self regenerative power.

Indonesian deep tissue massage treats chronic and acute muscle and joint pain. It calms the emotions, relaxes body and mind and really contributes to a sense of well-being.
