In Indonesia, massage has been an integral part of Indonesian culture for centuries, providing health benefits and beauty both outside and inside. The archipelago became known as the “Spice Islands” because they were rich in spices which brought traders from all over the world. Thus, massage techniques were also influenced by Arabian, Chinese and Indian traders. The most advanced knowledge of healing techniques and massage are found in Java and Bali, based on the traditions of the kingdom of Majapahit. During the Majapahit era many beauty treatments were developed and used in the Javanese royal palace by the queens and princesses. During this period massage also evolved for relaxation, beauty and healing.

The Javanese word for massage is URUT. URUT is more specialized and is normally used to treat bone fractures and muscular injuries. URUT can be quite painful at times, as it penetrates much deeper, with practitioners working not only on the muscles, but also on the nerve paths. Its main purpose is to heal and encourage good blood circulation. The URUT practitioner, known as Tukang Pijit Urut, must have a much greater knowledge of anatomy, including bone structure, nerve pathways and pressure points to heal effectively. Fingers, thumbs, palms, knuckles and body weight are all used to restore muscle tone, heal broken bones and remove toxins. URUT massage is very precise and technical, but to endure the discomfort of a treatment is usually beneficial, as the feeling of wellbeing is quickly restored after a treatment. Once you have learnt the Javanese Massage techniques you are almost there. Your next step will be to master the art of listening to the body you are treating. You will intuitively develop a way to adapt your treatment to suit your client needs.
