Yes I ran away to an island, escaping Bangkok in a Thai local bus complete with pink frilly curtains that I'm sure they nicked from my grandmother's house.
Oh and the karaoke, let's not forget the out-of-tune "Tie a yellow ribbon" ...
But we made it to the coastline, boarded a cheerily painted boat and headed out to Koh Samet for the island getaway I had dreamed of.
What I didn't count on was discovering a really unusual style of massage with sea shells...
I'm on holiday right? Not meant to be working ...suuuuuure.....
But I did.
Everyday we would take our motorbikes out to eat the best fresh seafood on this planet.
The restaurant was on wooden pylons in the middle of the sea and we would be pulled out in a dingy attached to a rope.
There we sat on the deck, feet swinging over a hole where you could see the fish feeding below...
and on the glass topped table above you fed on the fish..
and scallops ..
Anyway, on the way back from another gob-smackingly good lunch, I stopped in at a place with a "massage" sign.
And that is where I found the sea shell massage.
Gorgeous cowries that were dug into the knots in my back, huge scarlet clams that were warmed for my hands, and cone shells that unwound those ugly spots in my neck.
Just beautiful energy from the shells and therapist and one of those amazing surprises...
Discover a great new massage....tick"
Scented oils heated in a cowrie shell crevasse, crimson tinted cone shells unlocking the stress in shoulders and delicate cockle shells smoothing the lines on the face…
Sea shells have an uplifting natural energy that is drawn on in a unique new massage style by Ripple.
Using a mix of reef shells, including speckled cowries, exquisite ginger scallops, lions paw fans and elegant sun dial shells, this style of massage taps into the energy of the shells whilst giving a deep and calming massage.
The shells are used in a mix of ways. Some like the cowries are heated, and aromatherapy oils are poured into the crevasse to warm before being trickled onto the body. The smooth domed surface is also used with hands on massage to release muscles. The shells are used both to de stress and for deeper tissue work.
Other shells like the lions paws and scarlet coloured scallops are heated and placed on the body to warm the chakras and also the hands during the massage.
Smaller more delicate sun dial and cockles are used to release lines in the face, whilst cones and olives unlock tension in the neck and shoulders.
"Hi Ripple, I wanted to give you some feedback on our massages last Friday. Rachel and Dianne were fantastic, very professional and without a doubt the best massages we have had (and we get quite a few). I enjoyed the seashell massage and Mark was happy with his Blokes massage. Please pass onto the girls our thanks." Bethanie - Noosa
