The massage is typically performed on a mat on the floor, with the client dressed in loose-fitting clothing or covered with a towel. The therapist uses long, rhythmic strokes and applies deep pressure on specific areas of the body, such as the back, neck, shoulders, legs, and feet. The pressure applied is intended to reach deep into the muscles and tissue to release any tension, knots, or blockages.
Sasak massage also incorporates stretching and joint mobilization techniques, which can help to improve flexibility, range of motion, and posture. This massage is often used as a therapeutic treatment for people who suffer from chronic pain or physical injuries, or as a way to relieve tension and promote relaxation after a long day or strenuous activity.
