Choose your massage wisely

If you arrive at Bali Airport and walk or ride a motorbike to your hotel in Kuta, Legian, Seminyak or Canggu you will see Balinese girls in matching uniforms and a glass shop with massage chairs inside is a massage place that offers cheap prices.

But is the result maximum? I you can get maximum results by trying massage in a simple roadside massage place that is widely spread. For the market price offered there is around Rp. 60,000 / hour.

However, it’s good in choosing a massage place to follow your intuition and adjust to your comfort standards. Because not all massage places have experienced and certified therapists. Because if you are handled by an inexperienced therapist it could be the result obtained is that your body becomes increasingly sick.

Prepare your budget

Budget is one of the most important things you need to prepare, because you are not just going to Bali for a massage. But a massage in Bali is a necessity, so calculate your budget for this.

You should prepare at least USD $20 or approximately IDR 300,000 for one quality massage session in Bali. But if your budget is lower than that, you can still enjoy a massage at the many massage parlors scattered on the streets of Kuta, Legian, Seminyak and Canggu or Ubud.

Massage in Bali is known for its affordable prices and good quality. The price of course varies depending on the place you visit and the location. Our advice is to avoid looking for cheap massages in Bali as they may not provide the best benefits and experience.

4. Massage Location in Bali

The location is one to consider, because if you go to a massage place in a place crowded with tourists, of course it will not provide the best massage experience. Because your focus will be disturbed. So the choice of a massage place in Bali that is away from the crowd can be the best solution.

5. Experienced Therapists

8. Avoid Playing Cellphone

A lot of guests choose to play with their phones during their massage session and this is completely useless. Forget about your phone and focus and enjoy every second of your treatment. It will give you great results and reduce your stress.

9. Try Hotel Massage

You stay on the property, they make a serious effort in creating a special zone for pampering within the complex. Prices for massages at in-hotel spas generally start from around $100 per hour. Aside from the convenience of the location, you’ll get all the amenities you need. There are robes, there are consultations, there is no pressure for you to vacate the premises and there are often designated areas away from other hotel guests to relax.

10. Don’t Forget to Prepare Tipping

It is not a requirement that you tip, but it is allowed and feels normal. There is no set standard for tipping, but set aside approximately 20 percent of the massage fee and give it as a bonus to your therapist.
