Four Season Jimbaran Spa

Balinese and Asian massage techniques are renowned the world over for their relaxing and rebalancing benefits. Experience our unique selection of practices that combine authentic manual therapies and pure essential oils to boost circulation and wellbeing.

Traditional Balinese massage techniques are passed down through generations. In its most traditional form, the massage uses long strokes, gentle skin rolling, deep kneads and foot reflexology. Choose one of four restorative massage oils:
Grounding: "Bali Shanti" with pandanas and citrus
Calming: "Peace of Bali" with sandalwood, ylang ylang and ginger 
Nourishing: "Bali Sunset" with lavender, lemongrass and nutmeg 
Purifying: Virgin coconut oil  

To balance the yin and yang energy within, known in Bali as rwa binada, warm and cool marble stones are used to massage specific areas of the body, providing relief and relaxation. Swopping between the two opposing temperatures dilates and constricts the blood vessels, in turn exercising the capillaries and relaxing the muscles.

Experience the deeply restorative benefits of two therapists working in unison. Submit to the healing powers of four hands massaging the body in seamless coordination as tension is relieved and muscles stretched using a blend of synchronised massage techniques from East and West.

Drawing on Indonesia’s eastern influences, this earthy, grounding massage works on the meridians and acupressure points to bring physical reaffirmation. Hot marigold and lavender salt compresses and warm river stones soothe and energise, while a blend of five essential oils balances the body’s five elements, restoring energy, relaxing the nervous system and evoking a feeling of contentment.

This treatment brings deep concentration to specific areas of tension by warming the muscles with Balinese massage, then applying pressure-point techniques using the therapist's forearms and elbows, and ending with Balinese foot reflexology. We recommend that you warm your muscles in the steam room and sauna prior to this massage.

This targeted treatment combines Indian-style head, neck and shoulder massage with reflexology for the feet and hands. Firm pressure eases muscle tension to improve blood flow, returning the body to a healthier equilibrium and decreasing the stresses of fast-paced city lives.

This nourishing and harmonising treatment combines a herb poultice massage with rosehip seed and Argan oil (infused with extracts of lavender, geranium and rose) to replenish dry skin, remove excess fluid and gently relieve aches and pains. An optional body scrub with blackcurrant seed, honey and Himalayan salt gently adds lustre to the skin.

A unique massage technique using strong kneading, tapotement and Chinese suction cups on cellulite-affected areas to eliminate stagnation, intensify metabolism and dermal respiration, and improve skin elasticity. ila Body Oil for Vital Energy (containing argan oil, juniper berry, geranium and lemongrass) helps stimulate and release excess fluid.
