Balinese Traditional Healing on

Bali's rich tradition of ancient healing modalities harmonizes delightfully with contemporary needs

Balinese Healer

Bali has a long tradition of Bali Usada, also known as Balinese traditional healing. This practice uses natural herbs and spices, holistic therapies and ancient wisdom to cure physical and mental illness. The Balinese live equally in two worlds: the seen or conscious world called sekala, and the unseen or psychic world, called niskala. In traditional Balinese healing, both of these elements are addressed in order to truly heal an ill patient. The rich Balinese culture includes a wealth of information on herbal remedies, massage and energy healing, customs that continue to thrive today. The lush Indonesian landscape produces a wide range of herbal medicines known as 'jamu', and the Balinese still consult Balians – traditional Balinese healers who work with divine energy. This respect for alternative healing modalities attracts and impressive number of leading international holistic healers, many of whom have settled in Bali to run their own practices.

Look at the categories in this section for a listing of traditional Balinese healers and holistic practitioners in Bali for Naturopathy, Structured Bodywork, Acupuncture, Reiki, Reflexology, Cranio-Sacral, Tarot and more.

The book and movie "Eat Pray Love" have turned the spotlight on balians, (dukuns/shamans) the traditional healers who play an important part in Bali's culture by treating physical and mental illness, removing spells and channeling information from the ancestors. Travelers seem to have added a visit to the balian to their Bali 'must-do' lists, right along with snorkeling, a cremation ceremony and a trip to the spa. But a visit to a balian is a serious matter, not a tourist sideshow. (read more)
