Eat, pray, love…we all know the drill! Balinese healers have moved into the limelight as the must-do experience on many travelers’ itineraries. Known as Dukun or Balian, they often operate out of their homes and incorporate meditation, medicine, massage into their spiritual practice of helping others heal inside and out!
While there are too many fabulous ones to note in this short post, here are a few to visit! Enjoy…
