This week we are highlighting our sumptuous treatment of the week - Lava Shell Massage.
What is Lava Shell massage?
Lava Shell massage is a type of heat treatment using Tiger Clam shells as a massage tool. The clams have been harvested for food in the Philippines for hundreds of years. The shells used to be thrown away, but are now being recycled and used for Lava Shell massage - making this a great eco-friendly spa treatment. This tranquil massage uses the world’s first self-heating massage tool and the heat is produced by inserting a ‘lava gel sachet’ and ‘activator liquid’ into the shell.
What is a Lava Shell massage good for?
Lava Shell massage is enjoyable for anyone with tense muscles, as the heat from the Lava Shells will gently relax and smooth away any knots. The Lava Shells owe their magic to a mix of minerals including dried sea kelp, dead sea salt, algae and essential oils. The heated shells also give off calcium ions, which transfers to your skin during the massage. Calcium can help to firm and regenerate the skin - a nice bonus.
An alternative to the popular Hot Stone massage spa treatment, the Lava Shell can radiate heat for up to an hour, allowing your therapist to provide a continuous and seamless warm full body massage.
Lava Shell massage can boost circulation of blood and lymph. The treatment will begin with an application of massage oil to help make the strokes smoother. The heated Lava Shells are applied onto key points of your body to relax your muscles, before using the smooth part of the shells to massage your torso and limbs, using slow deep moves.
