The Secret Garden Spa at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui unveils its latest signature treatment – an invigorating Lava Shell Massage. Shaped by the spirit and bounty of the sea, the experience is recommended at the newly renovated Secret Beach Spa Sala, tucked away in a tranquil cove of the island.
Perfectly warmed Pacific clam shells filled with lava gel that combines minerals, dried sea kelp and algae are used to massage the body. The Spa’s therapists use their expertise in fluid movement to help increase blood circulation and provide deep relaxation through gentle warmth. Combined with therapeutic ocean breezes and medium pressure kneading, this 90-minute massage is the ultimate island indulgence.
For centuries, South Pacific Islanders have harvested tiger striped clams for food and then discarded their lovely shells. Now, these crushed shells are being combined with high-quality porcelain to create porcelain lava shells. Each handcrafted shell is cast in the shape of a natural, flawlessly formed clam shell. Uniform in size and thickness, these hand-painted beauties are the perfect self-heating massage tool, requiring no electricity or equipment.
