I came to this place with special purpose to get shiatsu massage. I was not feeling well, pain on my lower back, shoulder and neck got stiff after sitting for quite long time and I guess not in the right position when driving around in Bali. I thought that regular massage would not fix my problem, and been thinking about shiatsu. I like getting shiatsu massage, especially when I feel like catching flu or have back pain. That normally works well on me.
So, I did google about shiatsu in Bali and came up with several places, one of them was Cosmo Salon & Spa. This place is still in Sanur area. They provide massage and spa treatments, nail and waxing treatments, hair treatments and make up. There are several types of massages in this Cosmo Salon: Cosmo Fusion massage, Cosmo Signature, Deep Tissue massage, Shiatsu, Bali massage & Thai massage (you can read the detail technique of each massage on their website, includes the price). I read on Tripadvisor about this place and many people were recommending Cosmo Fusion massage. It is combination between deep tissue massage and shiatsu, but I wanted shiatsu. Unlike shiatsu that I used to get in Jakarta, which use feet pressure technique, the therapists here are using finger pressure technique. This therapy also involved kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques, performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing that they provided. I think the shiatsu technique at this Cosmo Salon is better than the one I get in Jakarta. One hour of this massage was relieved my back pain, not entirely right away but I felt much much better. Maybe I need more than one hour to heal the pain completely :). I was thinking about that on my way back home.
Note about this place:
- Most guests are foreigners.
- Friendly staffs especially the receptionist.
- The place is clean.
- The price is a little bit higher than Leha-Leha Spa, but it is still within market range and based on my own experience it is more than worth to get the shiatsu massage here.
- Over all: good services with reasonable price.
