My wife who currently expecting, is on her 7th month of pregnancy of our third child. Her moves has become slower and she started to complain to me that her lower body, especially her pelvic joints becomes intermittently painful and sometimes discomforting. I did give her massage for once or twice, hoping to relieve her symptoms, but unfortunately, it didn’t. And I don’t encourage her to take pain killers to relieve the pain, although we know that it would help her condition.
So, I brought her to Jari-Jari, Sabahâ€™s latest location for high quality indulgence, a massage therapy center that is situated in Tanjung Aru Plaza, Kota Kinabalu. It is a perfect place to restore and rejuvenate your body with various treatments and massages, which is done by skilled local Dusun therapists, blended with sensuous oils that can really calm your mind and body.
She was a bit reluctant at the beginning, as she had never been offered to be “pampered” like this before and slightly anxious whether the massage would disturbed her pregnancy. However, after discussing with her massage therapist, it is quite safe to have a massage during pregnancy, provided that the masseur do not disturbed her tummy.
There are various packages available, starting from just a “Signature Massage” which cost about RM140++ (their website state RM160++) for 1 hour and 15 minutes up to RM670++, depending on the packages that you choose.
I was told that they have a very special promotion for locals, which would only cost us RM98++ if we decided to choose one of their “Signature Massage”. As this is our first time, I decided to utilize the promotion and opt with their Award Winning Best Traditional Treatment â€“ Dusun Lotud Inan Body Therapy.
This relaxing massage uses techniques passed down from generation to generation among the Lotud Dusuns, a group from the Tuaran District just north of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Their distinctive massage technique involves applying pressure with the thumbs to the various pressure points in the body, magically unlocking the flow of energy, releasing tension and relaxing the muscles.
The session started with a 15 minutes of Floral Foot Bath, Foot Scrubs and followed by the “Dusun Lotud Inan Body Therapy”. I managed to get some photos of the place while my wife was gets the treatment.
We were served with herbal tea (which taste really spicy) while my wife was filling up her particulars on their reservation form.

While flipping through their brochures, I saw an interesting package, which tailored specifically for Mount Kinabalu climbers – SABAH JUNGLE TREKKERS AND MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS PACKAGE. The session take 2 hours @ RM 345.00 ++.
A reward for all those who have completed their jungle trek, or reached the summit of one of the highest mountains in Southeast Asia. This proven treatment is designed to relieve stress from tired and aching muscles.
