WHAT IS JADE ROLLER?
By West Norwood Therapies Team, Nov 11 2015 09:00AM
West Norwood Therapies' face massage and natural skincare expert explores the benefits of using a jade roller in her treatments and on yourself at home.
Here is another beautifying jade tool I want to share with you as I truly love it, it feels amazing on the skin, leaving it glowing, firm and refreshed and also has a wonderful healing energy. Jade rollers were the privileged accessories of the Chinese empresses in their quest for smooth, youthful facial appearance.
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) believes that Jade’s cooling effect helps to ease sinus pain and headaches, relieve stress and puffiness on the face (as improves lymphatic drainage).
This natural rejuvenating method invigorates and awakens the tissue, making everything circulate the way it is supposed to and generally beautifying the skin improving its health and appearance. It minimizes fine lines, cools down heat, reduces inflammation and restores facial skin tone.
Jade Roller is extremely easy to use: gently roll across the skin following muscle direction.
You can try Jade roller at home and you can also experience a heavenly facial massage choosing between JADE STONE FACIAL and ORIENTAL FACIAL THERAPY.
JADE STONE FACIAL
This facial ritual was made famous by ancient royal families that used the beneficial effects of Jade stone massage on their face to keep a healthy, youthful appearance. Jade has healing, balancing, harmonizing and beautifying properties. Aromatherapy is combined to create a wonderful experience for your senses, together with an optional honey and green tea mask.
Clients reports that after the treatment the skin appears smoother and firmer, refreshed, tighter and revitalized. It really brings back a lovely glow to the skin!
ABOUT JADE STONE
In Chinese culture, Jade is known for its healing properties which relax the nervous system and aid in removal of toxins. Jade carries a soothing and nourishing energy that can feel very healing as it purifies your energy field and creates a serene feeling of harmony and balance.
In ancient lore, cultures from the Chinese to the Aztecs prized jade even higher than gold for its beauty. The Chinese revered jade for its ability to bring about health, wealth and longevity. Ancient healers also believed jade could treat kidneys and adrenal gland disorders.
Jade is claimed by some to:
• Aid in detoxification by strengthening the body’s filtration and cleansing system
• Boost the immune system
• Improve the health of the heart, lungs and thymus
• Ease sinus pain and headaches, relieve puffiness on the face (as improves lymphatic drainage).
• Stimulate Qi – what the Chinese call the “life force”.
In gemstone therapy it is said that jade 'stimulates creativity and mental agility on the one hand, while also having a balancing and harmonising effect' bringing us joy, vivacity and happiness. It sounds just perfect!
