Lava Shell Massage is definitely better than Hot Stones. As Maurine said, the shells maintain constant heat for over an hour and therefore don't need to keep being changed during the massage. They also emit calcium ions on contact with the skin, which leaves it lovely and soft! They are amazing for muscular tension and I also find that the heat instantly relaxes clients. Enjoy - whichever you choose!

Lava shell massage is by far better than hot stone. The shells stay hot for over an hour therefore the therapist hands never leave the client during the massage where as the hot stones need to be replaced regularly

I don't know about lava shells massage but hot stone massage is awesome. the heat will penetrate about an inch down into your muscle. Great for working out stress and for overall relaxation!

How about using both, I love both the shells and the stones so I use both in my massages. Depending of course on my client's requirements.
I have found the hot stones array for a spinal layout really helpful in loosening up the tense back muscles. Then I use both the shells and the stones to work deep into the problem areas. Why not have the best of both worlds....?

The basalt stones have their own beneficial properties as they consist of olivine and magnesium silicate and have Moh's hardness scale from 1 - 10 basalt is rated 7 whereas a diamond is rated as 10. Magnesium reduces tension in the muscles leaves the skin silky soft. Application of the geotherotherapy exchange of heats together with the smooth basalt and marble stones make their composition easy to use as their natural properties and weight of the stones penetrate and permeate muscle tension in a way that is remarkable. When energy is used with the treatment the stones work for themselves. When the therapist uses the chakra healing with the crystals this whole combination is not only a luxury but highly healing for emotions as well. Benefits are increased circulation, relaxing, healing, invigorating and benefiial for injury.

Abate Beauty & Spa Sanctuary suggests, why not try both therapies each are equally rewarding and beneficial and by doing so you can decide which one it is you prefer and works best for you. Everybody has their own preference but it is important to decided whether you are wanting a treatment purely for relaxation, injury, or a medical condition. Which ever treatment you choose it is very important to speak to your therapist highlighting your concerns and answer your questions this should then make your decision easier.

i highly recomend you ,good hand massage instead of those way ,
old and traditional way of massage from good toucy hand always good ,obviously know kinesiology and anotomy ,cardio expert will do great massage ,
really important idea of massage , pressure, movement and positioning
stone and lava wont provide those ideas, I can recommend good hand in Covent Garden who can provide mixture of massage .

I have to go with hot stones. As gadgetsrus, Allysa, IntegratedHealer and vortex- therapies explain why they are the best. As well as helping with stress and giving a deep relaxation it helps get deeper down to the muscles. It is so much more than just massage.

Lava Shells are far better than Hot Stones, they give a continual heat where as hot stones only remain hot for a short time. The shells are real tiger clam shells which are wonderful when you massage with them. You can really get a much deeper massage and gain faster relaxation with the shells.
I have been using shells on my clients for over one year and they do not want the stones now! This time of year what better treatment to offer your clients than a real hot shell massage.
You are missing out if you do not go and get a treatment!

I just did my Lava Shells training and I've got to say it is by far the best method for a heated treatment. You can use up to 4 shells in a massage and the temperature is really managable so throughout the whole massage you can stay toastie warm. I have found with hot stones they go cold very quickley and also they need to be cleaned thoroughly as the stones absorb the massage oil and dead skin cells - I know from working in certain spas that they don't get cleaned as often as they should. The Lava Shells don't absorb anything so they are really hygienic.
I have already has some clients in for the treatment and the response is amazing - you can get really deep into the muscles and it makes them feel so chilled out. It's a beautiful treatment.
Also, if any of you are thinking of getting in Lava Shells in your salon the training is brilliant. The class size is small enough so you can get one-to-one time with the trainer if you need it and the people who run it are so happy and friendly - you can really tell they enjoy what they do and the after support is fantastic for those who need a bit of a boost in doing their treatments or with retail ideas.
Anyway! Give them a go and see what you think!

I had my first Lava Shell massage the other day and can honestly say it was the best treatment I have ever had, ever in my whole life! I have always had Hot stones before and love the heat , but with the Lava Shells I reached a much deeper state of relaxation and the constant heat from the shells gave a much deeper treatment and my muscles seem to have benefited greatly. I'm converted!
