This Moroccan massage was primarily intended for the Berber populations from long ago. The ancient Berbers were a nomadic people who were constantly on their feet, moving from place to place. So logically, the traditional Moroccan Berber massage begins with a long rub of your feet and legs while in a bowl of warm water. During this time, enjoy the southern Moroccan version of mint tea and take your mind to a relaxing place. The massage then continues with a deep muscle massage of your entire body. This intense experience was meant to increase blood circulation after hours of walking in this area of very hot summers and very cold winters. The whole massage experience is done using traditional Argan oils that protect and nourish your skin.
