Lava Shell Massage
Lava Shell massage is a type of heat treatment that uses Tiger-striped 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. The heat is produced by inserting a ‘lava gel sachet’ and ‘activator liquid’ into the shell.
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 shells also give off calcium ions when heated, which transfers to your skin during the massage. Calcium can help to firm and regenerate the skin.
Lava Shell massage can boost circulation of blood and lymph, soothe aches and pains, reduce swelling and water retention and relax you.
