Traditional Berber Massage

The Berber people or Imazighen are the descendants of the nomadic pre-Arab inhabitants of North Africa. Today, the Berbers live in various regions and communities in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Mali, Niger, and Mauritania.

The Berber Massage is apparently rather popular in Morocco. As the Berbers were used to walk substantial distances daily, sometimes more than hundred kilometres per week, massage, including the use of oils (such as Argan oil), was foremost an aid to relieve pains and tensions of the feet and legs.

Following the tradition, the Traditional Berber Massage primarily focuses on the feet and legs, although the whole body is treated. The massage is typically accompanied with herbal foot baths.
