With so many products that are far removed from nature, these natural Lava Shells allow you the opportunity to interact with something that is raw, individual, and natural. Each 100% authentic Tiger Striped Clam shell is hand-selected in the Philippine Islands for its unique size, shape, and structural integrity. The shells are personally matched by size, sanded and polished to reveal their natural luster, then bonded together to form a beautiful implement for massage therapy. Being an organic product, natural Lava Shells will vary in size, shape, color, and pattern. Additionally, they provide a beneficial calcium ion charge while being used.
We offer both small and medium size shells to further allow you to calibrate the heat best suited for your treatment and client.
When filled with the patented self-heating technology of Lava Gel, Lava Shells heat for up to 45-minutes, depending on the method of application, giving you the same heat as a full hot stone massage with just two shells – no electricity of equipment needed.
The Lava Gel that powers the shells is available in three formulas:
- Level One – Swedish, Relaxation, Lomi Lomi
- Level Two – Deep Tissue Therapy Massage
- Level Three – Advanced Heat Therapy
IMPORTANT: Heating charges sold seperately. You will need these charges to heat the shells.

This is the perfect mineral blend for any heat therapy enhancement massage. In learning how to use and manipulate the heat, it is critical to start working with Level One. Many users will be eternally happy to stay with Level One and simply use as needed on the body. With this blend, we encourage using 1 or 2 shells for spot therapy.
Using a Lava Shell to heat the muscle tissue allows you to accomplish deeper, more targeted work, while being more comfortable for the client. During the first 30 minutes, while the natural mineral energy is increasing, you will want to maintain near continuous shell usage in motion, only setting the shell aside to recharge for short periods of time. After the exothermic mineral heat peaks, around 30 minutes, the Level One mineral blend allows you to set the shell aside for longer periods of time to do alternate modalities and more specific massage work.
