Traditional Healing in Bali:
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.
Some balian have learned their art from studying the ancient
scriptures called lontar and apprenticing with a master. Others have received wahyu or divine inspiration and heal from the heart. Both have an
esteemed place in Balinese society. The balian may go into a trance
state to discover the root cause of the problem and either give the patient
plant medicine, a massage or a list of offerings to be made.
In the home, many Balinese have what is called a "living apothecary"
which are simply the basic healing herbs and trees. These are made into
remedies such as an herbal drink (loloh – where leaves are
crushed and mixed with water), poultice (boreh – ground up herbs
and roots are smeared on the skin), or even a chewed up mixture which is spit
on the patient (sepuk). Yet healing is not only plant medicine, but
energy healing as well.
Sekala & Niskala:
The Balinese live equally in two worlds: the seen or conscious world called sekala and the unseen or psychic world called niskala. It is the balian's job
to help the patient restore balance in both worlds. Often the problem lies with
the ancestors, who can cause mischief or indeed real harm if not treated
regularly to their favorite treats and offerings. The balian may go into a
trance state to discover the root cause of the problem and either give the
patient plant medicine, a massage or a list of offerings to be made.
