Lava Shell Massage
Here at Hampson beauty clinic we use Lava Shells that are the world’s first self-heating massage tool. Lava Shells are 100% recycled, natural Tiger Clam shells. A patented, natural, biodegradable heat technology is incorporated into the Lava Shell which then emits heat for over an hour, allowing therapists to provide a continuous and seamless lava shell massage.
Portable, eco-friendly and non-porous, Lava Shells can be used to treat a multitude of concerns from easing aching muscles and joints to alleviating the suffering from IBS and bloating. Due to the shells unique shape and angles they become an extension of the therapist’s hands, deploying deeply therapeutic relief to where it is needed.
The Tiger Clam is native to the oceans surrounding the Philippines. Local villagers have gathered the clams for food for hundreds of years and having no use for the shells, simply threw them away. Now all this has changed. Using this waste product creates jobs on the island. The locals prepare the shell for use in massage by sand polishing them to a smooth finish and gluing them back together. A small hole is then drilled which allows the therapist to place the heating sachet inside to create the Lava Shell we use for our treatments.
Lava shells have many unique qualities over hot stones, predominantly the continuous heat the shells emit for over an hour, thereby enabling the therapist to deliver a deeper, more relaxing treatment as they have continuous touch time with you the client. Unlike stones the temperature of the shells stabilises as they are worked with and re-heat when rested, this means that the therapist is able to manage the temperature and offer a totally bespoke treatment to suit each and every client.
