With the advancement of cultural values and social life, the concept of trihitakarana is widely applied in various lives, one of which is in spatial planning. Apart from that, the division of the types of space which includes sacred, neutral, and despicable spaces is also included in the trihitakarana consideration. In spatial planning, the trihitakarana concept contains the application of the tri mandala and tri angga which is the main attraction of this research. Application of the concept of assistance in spatial planning both vertically and horizontally. However, many Balinese buildings outside the island of Bali do not apply the concept of trihitakarana in their spatial arrangement, such as spa and reflexology buildings. The building was chosen because of the mushrooming needs of urban communities for relaxation and recreation facilities, which aim to maintain balance and body health. In addition, spa and reflexology that develop in cities are synonymous with Balinese culture, both in terms of building design and types of activities carried out. Research on the concept of trihitakarana on spatial planning and reflexology was carried out in Bandung, because it departs from the number of tourists visiting Bandung every month, and Bandung is an alternative relaxation and recreation for residents of big cities around Bandung.
