What is the Malay Abdomen Detox massage

Traditional Malay massage helps to rid the body of “excess onion” o9r wind helping to release negative energy.  The abdomen houses vital organs and is a very important part of the body.  The health of the abdomen lies with the stomach, the digestion process and reproductive organs, if the natural digestion process is inhibited due to illness, mal-absorption or inactivity due to a stagnant lifestyle, the abdomen undergoes immense stress from the muscles and fascia (sticky-like layer between skin, fat & muscle). Such stress can cause pain in the sides, lower back pain, pelvis pain and even the ribs.

Abdominal massage is highly effective at removing obstructions and restoring the natural flow.

What is Navel Candling

The candle ingredients diffuse in all directions through the navel to circulate internally and give warmth to the internal body and improve general health condition & improve health.

The Malays believe that the navel is the center of life force, the navel is the thinnest part of the abdominal wall, since there is no fatty tissue, this area is more sensitive to external stimuli.

Navel Candles is an effective treatment to relieve the body of flatulence, stomachache, endocrine disorder and digestive problems. It also helps to boost the lymphatic flow.

So what does the treatment involve

The whole treatment is performed on the abdomen, we make sure you are warm and comfortable.  Only the abdomen is exposed.  To begin we use hot herbal compresses which help to warm and relax your stomach then we perform the Malay detox massage which stimulate the muscles prior to navel candling.  Thereby enabling smooth blood circulation to veins & aiding detoxification within the digestive system.  Next we light the navel candle, we continuously support the candle whilst lit, you will feel warm vibrations, this is a lovely soothing feeling. Once the candle is extinguished, we apply the detox mask (made from clay, salts and lime juice) this helps to improve blood circulation & to detoxify. We massage your scalp whilst the hot compress is placed on your stomach. Then after 10 minutes, we remove the mask and complete the treatment with a Lymphatic drainage massage which helps to reduce fluid retention and completes the detoxification process.


This treatment takes approximately 45 minutes but you can add either a Back massage or reflexology session . If you suffer from digestive, menstrual, fluid retention or stomach stress condition, this is ideal for you.
