HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF BALINESE MASSAGE AND SPA· Bali has been known widely for the strong spiritual life and their unique way of life compared with other nations. They are all bound in tradition and culture, which all that is coming from the nature and inspiration from the mighty god Ida Sang Hyang Widi Wasa. They have a strong and prime relation to the god, the nature as well as to the human, which they actualize in many ways like making daily offering of what we normally eat and drink after finished cooking in the morning, conducting many kinds of ceremonies range from ceremonies for the god like temple festival and ceremonies for certain important days like Galungan, Kuningan and full moon and so on. Ceremonies for humans range from the three-months-ceremony for the baby, tooth cutting, marriage, then ended with cremation ceremony. To show respect and thanks to the nature and of what grow and live in it they also make ceremonies which already give very importance and a lot of meanings to their life. All this is mostly prepared and made by women with or without the help of the husband. Realizing how big and important the duty and burden is, carried on the shoulders of the Balinese especially woman, which is really playing an important role in
the family to keep their tradition and culture, that is why they should try to keep healthy and prima by using manymaterials or ingredients that come from the nature like rice, turmeric, ginger, kencur, clove, pepper, coconut, salt,sandalwood, flowers, cardamom, cinnamon and many others in which they trust it can protect them fromdisease, release from tiredness, tension and pains and get relaxation and energy, and for beauty rituals. They useit either as a preventive or curative which they compose in one healing herbalism recipe called Boreh. So Boreh isa body mask or scrub made of herbs and other ingredients like sandalwood, coconut, candlenut, leafs andflowers, and the base is always rice used for preventive and curative treatment (healing) by the Balinese people.Massage is always the prior treatment before the application of herbalism.Massage and Boreh as a Balinese healing herbalism is already become a way of their life in which they can liveaccording to the philosophy of Hindu Tri Hita Karana (three concepts in balance of harmony). It tells aboutParahyangan (our relation to the god), Pewungan (to keep in harmony and balance between human and human),and Palemahan (harmonic relation with the nature).Balinese massage and Balinese spa have been used and found in Bali from the prehistoric for centuries andbecoming more popular which is known as herbal medicine (boreh, jamu, loloh, minyak urat) which made of riceflour and mixed of natural herbs according to the Lontar Usada Bali (the Hindu Sanskrit - the ancient knowledge
of medicine). On the other hand the massage itself was famous with the name “Meurut” done by tukang urut. This lontaris giving a poof to us as well to the rest of the world that Hinduism in Bali herbal healing already exists as old as theBalinese Hindu civilization itself. According to the historical evidence Bali healing herbalism and massage are influenced alot by Indian, Arab and Chinese culture. Further historical proof can be found in the stone relief of the biggest famousBuddhist Borobudur temple, in the 8th - 9th century in Central Java, in the carving of depicting massage, Kalpataru leaf andother ingredients. Bali is a part of Indonesia and before the whole islands of Indonesia were Hindu and the main base isJava and Bali. The Hindu from India arrived in Indonesia about 400 A.D. which introduced Ayurvedic medicine usingscented oil for massage and herbal/plants for medicine. Later on trading here the Buddhist monks brought knowledge ofChinese medicine, accupuncture and reflexology. Some massage techniques also got influenced by trades from Arab, Chinaand India who sailed throughout the islands for herbs and spices.Later after the end of the first millennium the influence of the Java culture spread to the neighboring to the island of Bali.Links were established between Java and Bali. The Muslims arrived in Java around 1450. When the Islamic religion break upMajapahit Empire in the 15th century during the King Hayam Huruk, many Hindu from Java fled to Bali, they brought theirbooks, culture, custom and knowledge of healing to Bali. All this blended and enriched of what already existed anddeveloped in Bali. 1908 when the Dutch occupied Bali Island they took many of the Sanskrit books, hence also Balinese
herbalism and healing spreading in Europe. Hence the Balinese healing frequently mirrors Java’s healing tradition 400years ago. Many similarities can be seen from this, for example in Bali called boreh is in Java called parm. Bali’s herbalismdrink called loloh is in Java called jamu. The Balinese body exfoliation is called murut in Java, is lulur. Now the word lulur isthe common term in Indonesia.The massage and the spa ritual mostly developed in the royal family for the king and the queen and is a must ritualceremony for the pre-wedding for the royal family with the hope the god will bless bride and groom to get gooddescendant and future welfare and luck. The ritual spend for few days, starting with massage, luluran (as cleansingprocess) and ended with scented fragrant flower bath, then continued with hair cream bath and facial. Most palaces havehuge water spring baths and ponds with cold and hot water, completed with Balinese architecture and stone statues likein Tirta Gangga (belongs to Karangasem kingdom) , Tirta Empol (Gianyar regency), Taman Kerta Gosa (Klungkung regency).These rituals also spread among the people’s lifes in the cities in villages. Since the booming of spa in Bali starting 1980,Balinese spa and massage have been adopted and commercialized in most hotels in Bali as well as all over the worldincluding luxury cruising ships and 5-star hotels.That’s why there are many similarities between Balinese massage spa and the one from Java. The main differences arefound in melody, rhythm and terms. So Balinese masage and spa is very rich of techniques and knowledge which can beexplained scientifically and have been proved of having many benefits and indications to all systems of the body. It can berelaxing, releasing, restoring, reenergizing, healing and balancing the body, mind and soul.
