Bali has its own traditional healing heritage that is the basis of today’s thriving wellness industry. Local spas no longer just offer Balinese massage and body scrubs. Many venues have embraced therapies from around the world to anticipate the rejuvenation needs of guests. Hot stone massage is one such treatment and its origins can be traced back some 5,000 years to India and is associated with the ancient healing tradition of Ayurveda.
Stones have been used for divination, warmth, healing and protection since the beginning of time. Lots of different cultures, including the Japanese, Chinese, Native American Indians and Hawaiians, draw on the benefits of hot stones to alleviate various health issues. Hot stone massage penetrates the body without having to use excessive pressure. It opens the pores, stimulates circulation, eliminates toxins and heals injured or strained areas of the body. Massage treatments using hot stones can be enjoyed at all Kayumanis properties.
