  • For centuries, African people have looked to Mother Earth for inspiration and healing. Africology are not only using fynbos and indigenous plants to produce unusual botanical beauty products but they are also tapping into the rich healing traditions of Sangomas and Inyangas.

The company acknowledges the work of the traditional healer and draw upon many of their healing rituals to cleanse, heal and purify the body. Blessing the body and eliminating negative energy is very much part of the traditional healer’s ritual in treating ailments.

    One of Africology's specials is The Intonga Amasatchi full body treatment. An Intonga stick is used to massage marula oil, Shea butter and essential oils into the skin, while the deep tissue massage relaxes tight muscles and assists with lymph drainage. The Intonga sticks aid in relief of tight muscles and congestion without bruising the muscles.
