Indonesian Massage or Mande Lular Massage is a deep oil-based massage and is an ancient system of healing, dating back more than 4,000 years.  It dates back almost as far as a Chinese massage and could be regarded as one of the original oil based massage therapies.  Fusing the cultural heritage of Central Java, the spice island of Indonesia, and the ancient precepts of Indian massage, energy lines and marma points, Mande Lular Massage, as it is known today comprises a deep, relaxing massage using products to exfoliate, soften and nourish the skin.

Traditionally reserved for prospective brides, this luxurious treatment is considered to be a form of spiritual and physical purification and, consequently, an excellent preparation for marriage and child-birth.  In Indonesia, the Mande Lular treatment is an essential element of a preparatory ritual which can last forty days, this pre-marital custom is honoured as a time for the women of the family to commune and give advice to the bride-to-be.

This unique and luxurious treatment consists of three stages, exfoliation, massage using dry hand movements and deep tissue massage with oils and using nourishing warm body cream.  This treatment will leave your clients feeling well and truly treated and relaxed.


The benefits and cleansing properties of the Mande Lular Massage are directly related to the treatment of the energy lines, marma points of the body, which incorporated with the massage produces holistic healing experience for the whole body.
