Lava Shell Body Massage

Lava Shell massage is a type of heat treatment that uses clamshells as a massage tool. The Clams have been harvested for food in the Philippines for hundreds of years. The Shell used to be thrown away, but is now being recycled and used for Lava Shell massage.

Lava Shells are the world’s first self-heating massage tool. 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 body massage. Due to the Lava Shells® unique shape and angles they become an extension of the therapist’s hands, deploying deeply therapeutic relief to where it is needed.

Lava Shell massage is greatly enjoyable for anyone with tense muscles, as the heat from the Lava Shells will gently relax and smooth away knots.

Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient therapy based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, which correspond to all areas and organs of the body. Following illness, stress or injury the body is in a state of imbalance. Reflexology is a natural, drug-free way of restoring and maintaining the body’s own equilibrium and thereby promoting good health. A course of treatment will vary in length as it is dependent on your body’s needs. During the course of treatment your circulation, elimination of toxins and relaxation are all improved. Beauty Time’s therapists are trained to the highest standards at the Accredited International School of Reflexology.
