Bali Usada

Bali is known for a long time because of its Balinese traditional healing therapies also known as Bali Usada. They practice their healing methods with the use of different herbs and spices, ancient wisdom and holistic therapies to help those with mental and physical ailments.

Sekala and Niskala

The Balinese believe in the conscious and psychic world known as Sekala and Niskala. In Balinese healing, both of these components contribute to the healing of a patient. Balians, which are the traditional Balinese healers play a huge part in helping sick patients in restoring balance in both their conscious world and psychic world.

Lately, more and more people are visiting Bali thanks to Eat, Pray, Love and other news regarding Balinese traditional healing. Curious tourists are just showing up in village compounds which is somehow good for business for the Bali healers but is somehow taking time away from the ill. But of course, you should still consider visiting a healer if you are truly cautious.

Make sure that when you do visit a Balian to set an appointment first. Don’t just show up on their doorstep unannounced. Also, English is not widely spoken in the area. If you have a sarong and sash to wear, you can wear them when you visit as a sign of respect. Once on the treatment, don’t be shocked if you get poked with a sharp stick. They may even do the treatment where a lot of people can see you. Your treatment may be in a very public place and probably painful so just know what you are getting into.

How to Find a Balian

There are around 8,000 balians in Bali, four times more than doctors. They are also called healers and are very respected in their communities. When finding a Balian make sure to know what you need since they also have their specialities. Some balians concentrate on massage, others in fixing broken bones or even midwives.

An easy way to find a Balian is to just ask around. When in Bali, you can ask your hotel. They may know someone and can make an appointment for you. You can also search on the Internet. These days, there are popular balians on Instagram and YouTube, showcasing their Balinese traditional healing style.

While Australian tourists are getting more and more interested with Balians, there are still some medical professionals who are questioning whether the Balinese traditional healing style can cure serious medical issues. However, visiting a professional doctor and a traditional healer can be a safer way to deal with this especially for serious cases.

Balinese Traditional Healing and Traditional Medicines

Bali is linked mostly with Hinduism which is mostly about maintaining balance. The Balinese considers a person out of balance when he or she falls ill and this may be due to external or internal factors.

The indigenous people on the island have used traditional medicines to maintain their health. They can even find traditional herbs from their own backyards. One example is boreh, a body scrab used by farmers in the rice terraces after a long day of work. Boreh is also used to prevent rheumatism and is mostly made of ginger, red rice, Javanese turmeric, cloves, and galangal. The ingredients are pounded and mixed to create a thick paste and then applied to the body once it dries. It is then washed off which will result for a better-moisturized skin.

There are a lot of different plants that grow along the edges of the rice terraces in Bali which is a good source of food and medicines. Some of these plants are lemongrass, citronella, soursop, turmeric with roots, taro plants, banana trees, and a lot more. Farmers take advantage of having these plants by grinding their roots and leaves and making different fragrances.
