Back In Balance
Experience the ultimate relaxing and healing moment with an Ayurvedic treatment at The Beach Spa at Belmond Jimbaran Puri...
Just like a machine that needs to be frequently oiled in order to work properly, so does our body. Meeting with deadlines, running a busy schedule and being under pressure almost every day gives almost no time for us to relax, even just a little. And sometimes headache, migraine and back pain make things worse.
That’s why, I believe I have more than enough reasons to go to The Beach Spa at The Belmond Jimbaran Puri that is known for their amazing therapies. The Beach Spa is the perfect place for soothing “me‘ time as it offers an Ayurveda therapy that pays attention to one’s inner healing and restores one’s energy through relaxation.
The first time I set my foot on the resort, I was greeted by the gentle waves of tall coconut trees on my right and left side. I took a little walk along the path in front of the resort’s cottages while enjoying the peaceful sea breeze to go straight to The Beach Spa.
Living up to its name, The Beach Flower bath at The Beach Spa. Spa is designed in a bale-bale concept widely known as beach huts. There are no walls nor air conditioning so guests have the ultimate pampering moment in the midst of nature. I was totally calmed already as I listened to the sound of the waves while breathing in the positive vibe of the area.
Before my treatment started, Ibu Tirta, the manager of the spa who has been working for more than 10 years at The Beach Spa, welcomed me. She handed me a list of a paper with questions to answer about the condition of my body based on my own understanding, as well as the type of my skin and my hair, and even how I deal with my workload. Once I finished answering all the questions, Ibu Tirta analyzed it and suggested I take the Ayurveda treatment. She also explained about the core points that needed to be focused on during my treatment.
Without further ado, Ibu Tirta took me to one of the bales. A therapist was already there, ready to wash my feet with warm water infused with mint essential oil. And so, my pampering journey began and I could feel my nerves cool down during the footbath. The aroma of mild herbs fragrance also helped me even more relax each minute. “We use high-quality organic essential oils, ranging from peppermint, citrus, candlenut and clove,‘ my therapist explained.
After the footbath, my therapist asked me to lie down on the bed, facing down. Then, the Ayurveda massage treatment began as she applied deep oil nourishment on my back and started to give onpoint pressures. Ayurveda massage uses heated oil and I believed her massage technique helped my skin to absorb the natural benefi ts with each drop of oil. And eventually I went to a deeper relaxation as she pampered me from head to toe.
I did not realize that 90 minutes had passed when my therapist called me gently. When I opened my eyes, my muscles were all soothed and my mind was eased. The Ayurveda therapy surely gave a positive impact to my mind as well, not only my body. After all, Ayurveda therapy is believed to be benefi cial for the nervous and immune systems, and can support healing for many diseases in the body and mind.
Before I checked out of the spa, I realized just how perfect this treatment is for workaholics. So, if you’ve been working almost non-stop this week, maybe it’s time for you to take a day off, go to The Beach Spa at Belmond Jimbaran Puri and enjoy the Ayurveda therapy to help balance your mind, body and soul.
