BEAUTY Treatment of the Week
LAVA SHELL MASSAGE - 75 MINUTE
Lava Shell massage is a type of heat treatment that uses 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 Shells massage is greatly enjoyable for anyone with tense muscles, as the heat from the Lava Shells will gently relax and smooth away 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.
Lava Shell massage can:
Boost circulation of blood and lymph
Soothe aches and pains
Reduce swelling and water retention
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.
