LAVA SHELLS are the world's first self heating massage tool. A unique innovation in warming spa therapies that relaxes whilst easing muscle and joint aches and pains. Offering the benefits of a hot stone massage but with an added bonus of being eco-friendly, the Lava Shell Massage therapy uses 100% genuine recycled Tiger Clam Shells which heat up internally for up to an hour with a patented combination of natural minerals and water.

Headland Therapies offer three types of lava shells treatment:

Warming Lava Relax Back Massage (30 minutes) ... £35
