As far as attempts for breaking world records go, this event in Bali surely has to be one of the most stress-free.

One thousand masseurs from all over Indonesia gathered at Sanur Beach to set a new world record for the largest-ever mass massage.

Lying on palmyra leaf mats, with the beautiful Indonesian coastline as the backdrop, 1,000 lucky participants were continuously massaged for 15 minutes in a bid to land the new record title.

The event, which saw therapists travel from Bali, Central Java and East Java to take part, broke the previous world record which had been set in July last year in Bangkok, Thailand.

During that world record attempt, 641 masseurs had carried out continuous treatments for 12 minutes.

Wayan Sudani, 38, one of the spa therapists, said participating in the event in Bali had been a rare opportunity.

She said: ‘Moreover, we got a certificate for participating in the event. I am really proud to be part of it.’

Mother-of-three Ketut Kamiasih, another masseur taking part, said: ‘I am really happy took part in this event and am glad I could.

‘Many therapist failed to participate because they only needed 1,000 therapists.’.. see more
