Pushing techniques predominate, working very deeply to ease muscle and joint pain. Indonesian Traditional Massage relies upon deep pressure massage to break down tensely knotted tissue and promote harmony of body, mind and soul.

Oil is used for Indonesian Massage, which is strongly therapeutic, and has a beneficial effect on the body's circulation and lymphatic system by releasing it's regenerative and self healing powers. Indonesian massage is performed on a mat on the floor, on a massage couch or when seated on a chair.
