anti-aging jade therapy


• • • •

Jade facial rolling is based on an ancient traditional Chinese medicine technique where you use a jade stone tool to massage/manipulate the muscles and fasciae of the face/neck while stimulating acupuncture energy points and promoting lymphatic drainage.

Anti aging jade therapy stimulates meridian points, revitalizing chi to tone and improve skin elasticity for a more radiant, youthful appearance. It helps reduce wrinkles and the signs of aging (Read about meridian points here)

If you have heavy eye lids that get puffy like mine then you are going to love this tool! It gives instant relief to puffiness, swelling, or tired eyes. Jade has properties that allow it to remain cold on contact…even in warm weather (you can put in the fridge to make it extra cold).

Use upward movement, from eye brows to flatten forehead lines. From center of forehead, roll along eyebrows towards the meridian points between the eye and ear.

Close eyes and use smaller roller starting from the inner corner of the eye and roll across eyelid toward meridian point near ear. Roll under the eye to same meridian point, focusing on any puffiness, crows feet and wrinkles around the eye area.

Use small roller and press gently down on meridian points by the ear. Hold for a count of three, exhale and repeat. This helps relax the face and relieves any tension. Great for headaches.

Roll smaller roller from eyes down and around base of nose to meridian point on side of nose. Press gently down on meridian points either side of nose. Hold for a count of three and exhale. Repeat. This helps relieve any sinus congestion and relaxes tension along smile lines.

Use larger roller. Start at nose and roll across cheeks to meridian point near ear. Roll from center of lips over upper and lower lip towards ear. From center of chin, sweep up towards ear. Roll upwards from bottom of chin to meridian points under lower lip. Press down for a count of three, exhale and repeat. Using larger roller, roll along jaw line towards the ear. Then roll under the   with upward movements from neck to chin. Starting from meridian point at base of skull behind ear, roll around to center of collarbone and up neck to jaw to drain the lymphatic waste and smooth wrinkles in the neck area.

Never roll back and forth!

This is the roller I have. (Roller came with images and instructions used, check out their website here).
