Jade Qi Spiked Roller
Not a fan of Jade Rollers? We weren’t either until we discovered the “spikes” and were instantly inspired to meet the challenge of putting them to good use. What’s the difference? Simply, the benefits! And, as with all our jade stones, it’s about balancing the pressure with the movement to create a fundamental shifts within the tissue of your skin. The addition of “spikes” improve Qi circulation (a.k.a. your body’s electricity) by stimulating the meridian points.
Always work superficial to deep, support the skin, work with the muscles and remember, when it comes to the “spikes”…less is more.
Light = lymphatic drainage (doesn’t have to be smooth to affect lymph)
Medium = iron out connective tissue & fascia (think fine lines & deep wrinkles)
Firm (not deep) = relieve tension and adhesions along bones, reduce appearance of scarring
Daily use improves elasticity, reduces inflammation and through increased micro-circulation and lymphatic flow, cleanses the tissue and helps keep the space around the cells pristine, so healthy skin can flourish.
Jade is a semi-precious gemstone used in traditional Chinese medicine. It’s been used for thousands of years in China dating back to 7th Century. Jade is inherently cool and rich with revitalizing vital energies that support the functions of the skin.
After cleansing, apply the Siam Botanicals or Ytsara Dewy Skin Oil and apply the spiked roller over the face for a minute or two with light pressure to warm the tissue. As you work, you can focus on specific areas of concern (deep wrinkles, fine lines, tension in the jaw or brows) and SLOWLY apply more pressure if needed. Less is more, so after working an area for 1-2 minutes, move to another area and keep moving allowing time for the face to absorb and respond to the work. Caution: use light pressure around the eye area.
The Jade Qi Roller can be warmed or placed in the freezer to cool.
