What Is Myofascia?
“Myofascia is a type of thin, strong, fibrous connective tissue that extends throughout our body to provide
support and protection to muscles and bones. Myofascial tissue fibers are made up of collagen and elastin
fibers that are arranged in a web-like structure and that are suspended in a fluid called ground substance.
With a tensile strength of more than 2000 pounds, it provides a strong support for the muscles, while at
the same time allowing for flexibility.”

The use of eco-friendly, recycled Tiger Clam shells to achieve a unique, thermal therapeutic massage. Inventor Dan Young, upon visiting the Philippines discovered the beautiful durable shells, and saw their potential as a massage tool, a natural element to fit comfortably in a therapist’s hand. Nonporous, easy to clean and sanitize, the shells could be used as a self-heating massage tool. Hand-selected for size, the shells are sanded down so no rough or jagged edges remain, industrial epoxy applied to the edges of the shell sealing them together. A hole is drilled into the shell’s top, so a ‘lava gel sachet’ and ‘activator liquid’ can be inserted inside the shell, closed with a plastic removable cap. Composed of all-natural calcium carbonate, and epoxy designed to weather many heating and cooling cycles, the shells last indefinitely unless accidentally damaged.
