Lava Shell Massage
‘The warmth of the tropics in the palm of your hands’
Hot Lava Shell Relax Body Massage - 60 minutes - £45
For the ultimate, calming massage, the Lava Shells Relax treatment is the soothing solution. As the therapist glides the marine polished sea shells smoothly over the body, you will instantly drift into a blanket of warmth, falling into a state of utter relaxation and calm. During the massage, the shells are worked over the palms, arms, neck and shoulder area, with the focus of the massage surrounding pressure points. Deep tissue work on these tension areas such as the feet, back and shoulders, ease away all muscle tension, knots and stress points, unblocking an energy flow and releasing a sense of balance to the entire body and mind.

Lava shell is a 100% natural tiger clam shell. It is sourced in the Philippines and is collected from a food waste product. This not only provides food but also jobs for the local industry on the island. The locals prepare the shells by sand polishing them in to a smooth tool, gluing them back together and cutting a small hole to place the sachets inside.
The Heat Technology
The Lava Shells are the world's first naturally self-heating massage tool. Two sachets are mixed together which form a chemical reaction and create an exothermic heat. The dry sachet contains minerals of Magnesium and Iron, mixed with absorptive powders. The activator is a saline solution and is poured on to the dry sachet inside the shell. This forms the exothermic reaction which creates the heat. This treatment is eco friendly from start to finish, no electricity is needed and the shells stay hot for up to 90 minutes! This treatment has been dubbed as the new hot stones!
Benefits of Heat
There are several benefits to heated treatments including an increase in extension of soft tissues; removal of toxins from cells; enhanced blood flow; increased function of tissue cells; relaxation of sore, stiff muscles; and relief of painful arthritic joints.
