For the ultimate, calming massage, the Lava Shell 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. The lava shells are not powered by external equipment, electricity or batteries. They are powered by an innovative mixture of natural minerals including algae, dried sea kelp blended with dead sea salt and essential oils. This blend of ingredients inside the shell, known as LavaGel, creates a chemical reaction that causes heat which can reach between 120 degrees to 125 degrees and can last approximately one or two hours.
The lava shells are made of calcium carbonate, the same material found in our teeth and bones. When the shell heats up, it gives off calcium ions directly onto the skin during the massage process. This helps to regulate the skins natural renewal process, leaving the skin looking firmer and healthier.
The therapist uses between one and four shells which have a smooth side to deliver a deep and soothing effect. The shells are held in the palm of the therapist’s hand while they use light Swedish massage strokes to ease and tease away any muscle tension that may be lingering. 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 feet, back and shoulders, ease away all muscle tension, knots and tension points, unblocking an energy flow and releasing a sense of balance to the entire body and mind.
If you’re feeling stressed and over-tired, or just feel like spoiling yourself then the lava shell massage therapy is the answer. It will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, relaxed and ready to take on the world. Its also known to treat a number of common problems including muscle tension, arthritic pain, blocked energy flow and even irritable bowel syndrome.
