Lava Shell Massage – What is it?

Lava Shell Massage is a heat treatment used for relaxation. For this treatment, striped Tiger Clam shells are used as a massage tool. Lava shells are considered the world's first self-heating massage tool. This treatment is an eco-friendly treatment. Previously, long clam shells were disposed of and considered useless. However, nowadays, these shells are recycled and used as a tool for this massage. Self-heating, disposable aromatherapy bags are used in this massage. These bags contain algae, dried sea kelp, and minerals. An activator liquid is then added to create a chemical reaction, during which heat is produced, (which can last up to two hours).

The lava shell massage therapist uses different oils to moisturize the skin during the massage. They press different sides of the shell on key body parts to relax the muscles. For example, the knob is used on the back to break tight knots. Gentle pressure is applied by smooth sides on calves and arms, while the narrow edge is ideal for releasing the tension in shoulders blades or between the toes. Therapists move lava shells on hands, palms, arms, shoulders, feet, and legs slowly. They apply firm pressure during the full body Lomi Lomi massage. After that shoulders, neck, and shoulders are stroked and rubbed with the shells.
