What is Bumba Massage?

The word ‘bumba’ is derived from Zulu, and literally means to work in clay as a potter kneads bread. The Bumba massage is focused on kneading the muscles as to soften them, and to release them from tension.

Bumba massage has the same advantages as any deep tissue massage like:

  • Promotes sensory nerve perception

  • Increases lymph drainage

  • Creates a deep well-being as hormones like endorphins are stimulated

  • The deep kneading movements bring about a sense of relief and deep relaxation.
