Ubud Medicine Man

On our last day in Bali, we went to a local Medicine Man for some healing.

The session starts with him poking around on your head and back to discover your illnesses.

He then has you lie down and he pokes on your feet with a small stick. He says that your entire body is mapped out on your feet. The spot on your feet where you have pain maps to where you have illness in your body.

At this point, it felt like he was ripping off my toenail. He said that this spot mapped to my back and neck.

He then stood over me and whispered magic words and gave an offering.

He then poked on the spot on my toe again.

Presto! No pain in my toe means the illness is no longer in my body. No expiration date was given on his cure.
