Treatment of the Month - SenSpa Lava Shell Massage

10th Jan 2019

A firm favourie for all spa goers, the Lava Shell massage is the perfect addition to a relaxing luxury spa break or spa day. The Lava Shell can generate heat off its own accord, making it the latest celebrity massage trend and our treatment of the month.

The Massage

The 60-minute massage is a full body experience, with the self-heating Natural Tiger clam lava shells placed on the back to warm and soothe muscles. To ease tension and reduce aches and pains, the lava shells multiply the effects of a deep massage and relaxing oils to relax muscles fully and leave you feeling rejuvenated. The aromatherapy oil contains a calming clary sage, geranium, spikenard and vetivert, which unwind both mind and body. The collection of the lava shells from the South Pacific is eco friendly and once added with lava gel has stunning results. The lava gels contains minerals, algae and Dead Sea kelp which mixed with sea water powers the lava shells to expel heat whilst opening the pores and detoxifying skin.


The Benefits

When combined with SenSpa’s spa facilities as part of a luxury spa day or spa break, the Lava Shell massage creates an overall unforgettable relaxing experience. The heat from the lava shells allows deep penetration into muscles so that hidden knots can be relieved as well as easing the body into a calm state. The freshness of the algae improves blood circulation and circulates oxygen through the skin so that it looks rejuvenated and refreshed, whilst soothing sensory nerve endings. A relaxed body and mind means that the body can start its natural healing process and rebalance the energy within; leaving you feeling recharged and revived.

Please note that this massage is not recommended for those who are pregnant, have thrombosis, lymphatic disorders or sever varicose veins.
