Pak Rahman will use healing elements such as traditional herbs, blessed-water, pressure point manipulation and sensory massage to alleviate troubles and improve your health.

This wellness experience will consist of an initial consultation; hike through the gardens and jungle to seek out the healing plants required for the remedy; watching Pak Rahman create the herbal infusion and then you drinking the Jamu – to your health!”
