Indonesian Massage Diploma

Indonesian Massage

Indonesian Massage is similar to Ayurvedic massage and dates back as far as Chinese Massage. Indonesian Massage is a deep oil-based massage, and is an ancient system of healing, dating back more than 4000 years. In Indonesian massage, pushing techniques predominate, working very deeply to ease muscle and joint pain.

Unlike other oil based forms of Western massage, Indonesian techniques are designed to give very deep stimulation to the soft tissues.

Deep thumb pushing along each individual muscle is designed to give thorough stimulation to the soft tissues. All soft tissue work intuitively follows the course of the Chinese energy meridians, and it is a highly effective treatment for injuries. The oil used for Indonesian massage, is strongly therapeutic, and has a beneficial effect on the body’s circulation and lymphatic system by releasing its regenerative and self-healing powers.
