Tamarind Spa Massage Classes

Your teacher

Your teacher has been teaching massage classes since 2008 and has been teaching at Tamarind Spa at Murni’s Houses since it opened in 2011.

Who are these courses for?

These massage classes are suitable and can be adapted for people who:

  • are absolute beginners
  • have done some massage and want to learn more
  • are considering professional training and would like a short ‘taster’ before committing
  • are already therapists and would like to expand their skills and learn Balinese massage techniques


The course aims to enable students to gain skills, confidence and knowledge of all the elements required for the preparation and provision of a full body massage, including the classical massage movements.

Teaching Method

We are committed to excellence and teach classic Balinese Massage in such a way that you learn to work intuitively with a ‘listening touch’. By the end of the course, your massage will perfectly suit your client’s needs.

What we teach

We will teach you the most effective, comfortable massage stance and posture, as well as the basic anatomy, which underpins the course work, so that you understand the benefits of massage and recognise when not to massage. We will also cover draping the client and preparing the room and table, and hygiene.

What You will Achieve

Using your practical and theoretical skills, you will be able to take a client consultation and give a full body massage. You will be able to practise on the teacher herself or a member of the Tamarind Spa team under her supervision. This will be a great help to build your confidence and professionalism. We will also give you a massage so that you know how it should feel.
