A Journey to an Ancient Balinese Healing
Inspired by the almost forgotten ancient Balinese healing practices usually called Bali Usadha, Legian Beach Hotel has transformed the ancient healing concepts and blended them to become our signature treatment.
Usadha in Balinese means knowledge of healing. Balinese believe that Gods created everything in this universe, including the disease and also its cure. In Usadha, it is believed that the disease is caused by three main causes, which are:
Panas - Dingin (Heat and Cold)
Inspired from that ancient belief, Usadha Spa is focused on giving a traditional treatment using all ingredients that come originally from Bali.
To put the concepts above into real life, every morning all our therapists practice tai-chi-fu (a unique combination between tai-chi and kung-fu) in order to collect all the balanced energy to energize themselves and transfer the healing energy later on during treatments. You are welcome to join them from 08.30 – 09.00 at the beachfront temple.
Pre-Treatment Cleansing Ritual
Your healing journey starts with a brief mind cleansing ritual, known as "Melukat" in Balinese and is continued with cleaning your body by our Therapist. The combination of Melukat in Balinese tradition aimed for a peaceful state of your body, mind and spirit to welcome the healing treatments in the best possible condition.
It is also believed in Balinese life that this ritual will drive away all negative energy from your body, mind and spirit which create anger, greed, revenge and unhappiness, so that we all become wiser and thankful.
