Lava Shell Massage
It is a deeply relaxing massage relieving aches and pains, stress and tension by using continuously pleasantly warm Tiger-Striped Clam Shells from the Philippines.
The clams have been harvested for food in the Philippines for hundreds of years. They used to be thrown away, but are now being recycled and used for Lava Shell massage.
They are highly polished, so they glide easily over the skin and feel very nice.
It's primarily a relaxing, soothing massage, warming the muscles without causing any pain. More pressure can be added and problematic areas can be massaged, if a client wishes so.
The shells also give off calcium ions when heated, which transfers to your skin during the massage. This together with luxurious oils will help to firm and regenerate the skin
The heat is produced by inserting a ‘lava gel sachet’ (dried sea kelp, algae and minerals) and ‘activator liquid’ (sea water) into the shell. The chemical interaction between the ingredients creates heat inside the shell that lasts one to two hours.
