How could one not relate to the universal language of touch, or to be more specific, that of massage? Well, I was one of those people because maybe I had never experienced a genuine massage.
At the recommendation of my friend, Corina, I decided to try a massage rooted in Bali, at an absolutely great massage salon: Enjoy Bali. And that is how I ended up having more than a massage but a therapy which engaged all my senses in the experience, which above all is a psychological and existential one. It is said that the touch has its roots in non-verbal communication or communion, and just as Steve Capellini states: ‘the real massage is the transmission of a message from the giver to the receiver and back again: and that message is likely to contain elements of gratitude, understanding, compassion and shared awareness.’’
The familiar, welcoming and luring atmosphere greet you from the door along with a wide smile of the amazing enchantress who is about to sooth your body as well as your spirit. To give you some insight, the Balinese massage is a holistic, full-body experience, a brilliant combination of aromatherapy, acupressure or gentle stretches or strokes. The aroma of the essential oils such as lavender and rosemary gave me an incredible mood boost.
For me it was just a massage but an experience which I will definitely repeat, because as I had been told, this therapy works on the twelve Meridian Lines which run through our bodies along with ‘the life force of the body’, energy that gets us as whole, pumping, alive and kicking.
One piece of advice: after being caressed, and after tension has been relieved from your muscles, not only through gentle strokes but also through soothing music that transports you to the sunny realms of Bali you can’t feel but re-energized and refreshed.
Not to mention the care of every aspect, gentle approach as to your every need, from temperature, music, amazing transcending aromas and as I like to call her, the enchantress (massage therapist), the artist who tries to re- create a version of you through the alignment of senses.
Each experience is unique, as well as each sense of humor has its charm (or lack of it), so try to submit to the touch and simply get lost in the moment.

Anyone else care to try it?
