With today’s hectic lifestyles, it’s not always easy to find that precious “me” time where you can completely relax. Imagine being able to escape to a place where you are “at one” with nature, with the feeling of lazily soaking up the warmth on distant ocean shores?
What are Lava Shells?
Lava Shells are 100% natural and are genuine, beautiful sea shells.
These “tiger clam” shells originate from the Philippines, local villagers gather the clams for use in their diet. Before the shells became used in massage, they were simply thrown away, live clam shells are never harvested for use as massage tools.
Lava Shells are non-porous and made of calcium carbonate, they do not absorb massage oil or bacteria meaning they are more hygienic, it’s also really good for the skin if the oil soaks in.
Lava Shells are self-heating; they are filled with a mixture of natural minerals and ingredients including sea kelp and algae, they heat up when a simple salt-water activator is added.

What Our Clients Say:
“I went along to Anna for a Lava Shell treatment as it sounded really interesting when I rang her asking about the different types of treatments available. To be honest I didn’t know really what to expect although I’ve had hot stones massage before and Anna said the shells would be heated. Lovely! I thought. Anna was very professional in her approach yet friendly and caring and after a consultation she took me to her treatment room which was lovely and warm. The treatment lasted 90 mins and I enjoyed every bit of it. Anna ensured I was comfortable at all times and enquired if the shells were the right temperature – which they were. I personally thought the lava shells were a more pleasant heat than hot stones I’ve had in the past. I particularly enjoyed having my legs worked on and Anna made sure that extra attention was brought to these areas. Today they feel much better I hasten to add. I would recommend Anna if you would like this treatment and I will definitely be back for more!”
Thanks again! Michelle S.
Just like to say the Intensive deep tissue massage I had with Lava Shells was wonderful. I have a few muscle problems more so when it is cold that's why I chose this massage. The heat of the shells really gets into the tense muscles and releases all the tensions within. If you love heat and seek relaxation for tired muscles then this is for you. Highly recommended especially for this time of year. Pure bliss. Thank you Anna, I'll be back.

I definitely enjoyed "Lava shell " back massage treatment, very first one I have had . I loved the smell of this special Tea tree and Mango oil , Anna used for this treatment. And also I have enjoyed the firmer pressure with the shells . Feel very relaxed and uplifted!

Hi, I've just had my first Lava Shell massage with Anna and what a wonderful experience it was. I needed something to relieve the tension on my back and shoulders so Anna suggested Lava Shell treatment. It was a very warming massage using a variety of pressure on the back of the neck, shoulders and back and you could feel the heat penetrating as she glided the shells over my body. After the treatment I felt so relaxed and the tension I had when I arrived had gone....amazing! I will be back as I thoroughly enjoyed the whole deep heat experience.

Having never had this treatment before and suffering with on-going lower back problems, I have found this treatment has worked wonders. It is very relaxing and with the mixture of oils and heat it helps to relax my whole body and mind. I feel completely calm and de-stressed after the treatment and this helps me have a good night’s sleep too.
Personally speaking, this is the most relaxing treatment I have ever had and leaves me calm in both body and mind.
If you feel you want a nice warming sensation to unwind and revitalise your body then try the lava shell massage, warm oil penetrates and soothes your aches and pains away giving you a wonderful sense of inner peace and wellbeing. Pure bliss! A favourite of mine..
I'm pleased I found Anna, she is a lovely lady, someone who cares and listens but most of all is a very competent, professional therapist in everything she does. I have not had a massage this good for a very long time. Very effective! If you need a boost give Anna a try, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended.
I really enjoyed this massage because of its warming effect of the shells on the muscles, I felt very relaxed. I had lots of tension and pain in my shoulders before the massage. After massage, my pain has gone and neck felt much more flexible. Therapist used firm pressure and listened to my needs. I will definitely recommend this massage to my friends. I'm very pleased with results
Feeling pleasantly relaxed. Enjoyed the opportunity to take time out.
This was my first experience with the lava shells. It was a very positive experience, it felt wonderful and afterwards I felt very relaxed. Thank you, Anna.
Totally new experience, felt relaxed from start to finish. Will come again. The Lava Shells release all tension and felt excellent. Thanks.
Last week was a lovely massage again. In the evening I felt good and relaxed, as I often do now. This massage is definitely doing me some good especially with my circulation. Thanks, Anna.
Today's massage with the shells was very different and I loved the heat penetrating my body, it was a lovely soothing feeling and I will definitely have it done again. I feel totally relaxed and rejuvenated, a nice 1 1/2 hours spent.
This massage-Lava Shells- is truly one of the best I have ever experienced anywhere! I must say that I have never felt so relaxed and soothed for such a long time, with gentle strokes up and down the entire body I was in a state of pure relaxation drifting away in a warm candle lit room with the sound of waves gently playing in the background, a wonderful warming pleasure which after left me glowing and feeling so energized I simply have to come back again for more pure indulgence. Thank you Anna.
