Lava Shell Massage

Hailing from the tropics to top spas, we feature my favorite way to relax. It’s the Lava shell massage. Sound exotic? It is!

A recycled tiger shell clam from the Philippines is used as a massage tool. The shell is filled with a mixture of seawater, algae and minerals and then heated to almost 120 degrees. The shell’s natural narrow edge and shape, combined with heat, makes it a perfect tool for deep tissue work. It instantly relaxes tight muscles. It’s also a natural detox, stimulating blood flow and temporarily relieving pain.

So, for a massage that is creating waves and transports you to paradise, try the Lava Shell Massage!
