The clam
shells are obtained from villages in the Philippines where they were previously
regarded as rubbish once the clam meat had been eaten. Hand selected for their
size and structural integrity, the shells are light and fit perfectly in the

rounded surface for even pressure and long strokes. They can be used to massage
clients through their clothes for a seated massage or with oil on the body.

body massage can last from 60-90 minutes using two to four shells. Boasting all
the benefits of hot stone massage, the shells offer additional advantages, such

cleaned very easily and there is no risk of cross contamination. To clean them,
simply remove the rubber seal and take out the biodegradable Lava sachet before
washing the shell with soap and water.


As well
as being a stand alone treatment, the shells can also be incorporated into
manicures, pedicures, facials and different massage techniques to enhance

The shell
treatment is being offered at select premium spa’s as well as Elmwood Spa in
Toronto. Comprehensive training for RMTs is provided.
