What is an African Rungu Massage?

This unique massage is administered with the help of a rungu, it is a wooden throwing club or baton bearing special symbolism and significance in certain East African tribal cultures. The rungu is especially associated with Maasai male warriors who have traditionally used it in warfare and for hunting. The smooth texture, heavy feel and different surfaces are combined to offer a massage with deep friction  and leaves the client with thoroughly massaged and stimulated muscles.  

 Rungu Massage promotes circulation, sensory nerve perception and lymph drainage as well as a deep sense of relaxation and well being. The gentle stretching movement alternated with light touches brings about a heightened sense of relaxation. Rungu massage is deeply relaxing experience.
