Lava Shell Massage

The Elite Hot Lava Shell Massage Treatment Everyone is Talking About!

Lava shell massage is a type of heat treatment that adopts Tiger clam shells as massage tools. Although other forms of heat such as hot stones can be used for massages, stones cool after several minutes of use. However, lava shells generate their own heat based on the movement of them. The practitioner can control the heat of the shells. When the shells are still, the heat subsides.

Lava Shells

Let's Talk

Tiger clams are usually harvested for food in the Philippines. Now, the shells are being used for lava shell massages rather than being thrown away. The heat comes from a sachet of lava gel that is put into the shell to soothe your skin. Lava shell massages have lots of health benefits, and can help relieve tense muscles or injuries.

During a lava shell massage, your practitioner will either use shells alone on your body, or alternate between their hands and the shells. The shells will be placed on the tense areas of your body, or moved around in order to provide you with maximum comfort across a range of areas. The heat encourages the muscles to relax and re-energises your body.

A lava shell massage can be performed anywhere on the body.

To ensure you receive the full benefits of your massage treatment, you should:

  • Stay hydrated and try and avoid caffeine and alcohol
  • Keep your meals healthy and easily digestible
  • Only do light exercise for up to 24 hours after your treatment
  • Have plenty of rest if you feel tired

What do lava shells do to the body?

How do lava shells keep their heat?
