These shells are traditional part of the diet of Philippines and were used to be thrown away but now these shells are being recycled into this massage tool. Thanks to creative mind people who invent this massage!
In this massage your body is smeared and exfoliated with massage oil to remove your dead skin cells to reveal a younger softer skin. The therapist massages your body with lava shells. These lava shells have a rubber plug in the bottom. The therapist put packet of minerals and algae into the shell, add some sea water into shell and again plug it up.
The heat comes from inside the lava shells because of a mixture of minerals and algae with salt water and essential oils. This therapy uses genuine natural materials and eco friendly with no need of electricity as when they are combined inside the shell, it creates a chemical reaction that causes heat for one or two hours. While using light Swedish massage, the therapist holds the shell in the palm of his/her hands.
