Indonesian traditional massage is considered as one of the earliest sorts of oil massage. This traditional healing treatment helps the body get rid of disease and regain its harmony with pressing and rubbing the soft tissues of the body.

There are a different kind of traditional Indonesian massages such as Pijit, urut and Balinese massage. In between, Pijit is the most common type and mostly is applied for relaxing and muscles strength. It generally focuses on the muscles, using hands and palms to press tissue strongly and squeezing it constantly with fingers and palms.

Urut is mostly used to treat the broken bones and injured muscles. Hence, this treatment can be painful, since the pressure is much deeper not only in the muscles but also the nerve paths and bones. The main achievement of this treatment is wellbeing and increasing the good blood flow. In Urut treatment, fingers, thumbs, palms, knuckles and body weight are all used to muscular relaxation, broken bones recovery and release toxins.

Balinese massage is actually skin rolling treatment. In this kind of massage, the therapist holds the skin between her fingers and thumbs and rolls the skin while is moving her hands and pulling up the muscles. In the Balinese massage, the masseur cracks the neck, fingers and toes; how much the sound is louder, the more pleased is feeling.
