I’m just back from an authentic Balinese massage Dreamworks Spa’s amazing Marina branch and I’m left wondering why I don’t do this more often! I think the entire week’s hectic and grueling schedules definitely call for a stress-busting massage every week.
I went in expecting one of those typical, standard massages that are offered at various places in Dubai but I was pleasantly surprised that the masseuse here at Dreamworks Spa was very well informed and was trained exceptionally well, to give me the most authentic Balinese massage experience I’ve had outside of Bali!
The ambience was perfect, with relaxing lighting and soothing oriental chimes in the far background, while the staff was really warm and welcoming. As the masseuse began, I realized how tightly wound my muscles were and I wasn’t even aware of that fact before I got here. Those terrible knots in my shoulders were due to prolonged hours on the computer which made my muscles contract with tension- All this was gently taken care of by masseuse using the unique Balinese techniques and indigenous oils that Bali is best known for.
It’s a bit of a paradox, but I’d say I felt super relaxed but also rejuvenated and raring to go after the massage! I actually chose to walk back home instead of cabbing it down simply because I was so pumped and energized. I’d say, it’s easily down in my books as a weekend essential ritual for every nine to five-er. Bring on the week!
