A fun Massage Course experience
Nestled inside a beautiful resort on Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak, Ambiente Spa is divided into two spaces. One on the second floor and the second located on the rooftop of the resort. Ethnic Balinese adornment fill both spaces. The spa houses two single treatment rooms and two for couples with a small shower to refresh your body after the treatment. Before we started, we were offered to fill the consultation form to get the most out of today’s treatment.
The treatments listed on their menu focused on healing and relaxation. They also offer a Fun Massage Course with two hours of massage practice and a free one hour full body massage. We tried their body massage course (IDR 790K net/person). In order to do the course package, we had to bring a friend to be the model of our practice. The course started with a brief explanation of basic upper back and shoulder anatomy. Making sure that we understood, our tutor asked us to point out the name of each anatomic part. The next step is learning the movement. We were taught several massage techniques including Effleurage, Thumb slide, Petrisage and Friction. Our tutor was slowly showing us the right way to do each of these movements and then she patiently guided us to do the the same. If we still didn’t get those right, she would be happy to guide us and repeat everything until we comprehend every lesson. We finished the course and got an attendance certificate, a massage course booklet, one voucher of 20% discount on Food and Beverage at Bistro Batu Kali and not to forget the most awaited bonus, a free one hour full body massage done by their professional therapist. Going to another part of the spa on the rooftop of Amadea Resort, we started the free massage session by choosing the essential oils. The one hour full body massage gave us a full relaxation time after two hours of learning at the course. At the end of the session, we were offered a cup of ginger tea and cookie to warm up our body.
For the full body massage treatment, the spa focuses on using local products which contain Balinese herbs and spices as the ingredients. Not only do these oils possess a distinctive aroma, they also bring positive benefits for your body and health. The options are vitality oil made of strawberry and coconut, Balinese oil made of frangipani and coconut, and dream oil made of orange and coconut.
Ambiente Spa has a variety of treatments on their menu, starting from the beauty treatments, traditional treatments to full-body rituals. Aside from the treatment, the massage course is definitely worth a try if you want to practice an accurate relaxation massage by yourself. The course was fun and very helpful. The tutor wouldn’t let us leave the course until we nailed the massage movement. This, their affordable prices, and it’s safe to say that Ambiente Spa is one of the best options you can find in Seminyak.
