Colon hydrotherapy and more personal treatments like vaginal smoking are offered at more advanced spas. Some areas like Ubud, offer craniosacral therapy and other healing treatments. Sometimes couples want to share the experience together so the spas provide double rooms. The four-hand massage is a very popular massage in Bali where two masseurs of either sex offer you the massage together, with perfectly synchronized strokes. Sometimes both the partners can participate face to face if they want to, or even choose to work on the neck and back of the other partner, making the massage session one of the best part of their honeymoon. The Zen Bali Spa, the Body Spa in Kuta, Natalie spa, Sicilia spa, Mandura Spa, Bali Botanical Spa, are amongst the ones worth a mention, which offer a plethora of holistic treatments.
