New Spa opens on Portland and features a treatment from the sea

La Vie Spa has opened at Portland’s Ocean Hotel and is featuring a treatment that is the hottest new spa craze and has been praised by numerous celebrities including Calum Best who described the treatment as “the best deep tissue massage I’ve ever had” and Katie Price who was “very impressed”. www.laviespa.co.uk
Eco-friendly alternatives to traditional hot stones, lava shells are the first naturally self-heating massage tool unlike traditional hot stones that require electric heating.
The tiger-striped clam shells originate from the South Pacific where the clams are part of the local communities’ daily diet and up until recently the shells had been considered a waste product.
La Vie Spa provides the perfect antidote to tired and stressed guests looking for a range of spa treatments to restore their equilibrium and sooth their cares away. The restorative powers of the sea air start to work their magic from the moment guests step on to the Isle of Portland and find themselves surrounded by the soothing sound and motion of the waves.
La Vie Spa is run by professional consultant and spa therapist Verna Herry. Verna is a highly qualified therapist who practises what she preaches and ensures every client has the chance to discuss their requirements before enjoying their first treatment.
Verna has returned to the Ocean Hotel to run La Vie Spa as an independent consultancy and explains the magic behind the lava shells, “This innovative new therapy is based on the shells’ natural ability to heat up internally with no need for an external source of heat. We use LavaGel which contains a blend of natural minerals including sea kelp and algae together with a salt water activator which heats up the shells naturally.
“The treatment not only provides an intense, comforting massage with the sustained heat allowing for deep muscle work to take away tension and alleviate soreness.”
Verna continues, “I am so excited to be bringing this treatment to Portland and our new spa as it is a revolutionary treatment that is a fabulous stress-buster and clients can choose from the full range of lava shell treatments which start at £20 for the Lava Relax Shot Treatment up to the Lava Relax Full Massage lasting 90 minutes and costing £75.
