A vacation is your time to unwind, relax and escape the world. Some travelers enjoy getting outdoors and hitting the hiking trails, others like to snooze the day away, and others still prefer to settle in and indulge in spa treatments and massages designed to pamper the stress away.
One of the most exciting things when traveling is exposure to new experiences. While many travelers may be familiar with massage treatments including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone and sports, they may not have had the chance to enjoy a Balinese massage. Offered by the Asian Spa at Laluna this massage style uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils, and is the perfect way to slip into bliss on your Grenada vacation.
Combining influences from a number of cultures, including Chinese and Indian, Balinese massage is often linked with Ayurveda, an Indian holistic medical system that places an emphasis on bringing the body into balance. Designed to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and qi (energy) around your body, techniques including rolling, kneading and stroking, acupressure and reflexology are implemented to encourage relaxation and wellness.
Working deeply in the tissue, a Balinese massage harnesses acupressure and reflexology techniques to reduce a variety of ailments including sports injuries, migraine, sleep disorders and anxiety. During your massage a Balinese masseuse will use a variety of techniques including press point and palm pressure, sliding long exploration, short exploration and kneading. Good for soothing damaged tissue and relieving strained muscles and joint pain, the circulation boost you’ll experience following your Balinese massage will help to reduce stress and bring your body back in to balance.
