I went to China for Chinese medicine, and fell in love with jade. I returned to China every year, for Chinese medicine treatment for myself, and to purchase jade. I made friends with several people, who invited me to their homes to stay while I was in China, and help me explore China. One of the things I noticed was that families had their own Chinese medicine cabinet, and they all had at least one Chinese jade roller and jade gua sha tool. And they used these all the time.
Jade rollers are used to improve circulation and smooth out the body qi energy. Using jade rollers regularly helps to break fascia to relieve pain. Jade rollers not only improve health by using the roller, but also with the qi energy of he jade itself.
I roll my jade roller over my body often. Move the large end of the roller downward. Shoulder to hands. Neck to crotch. Thighs to feet. Roll smoothly with a little pressure so "stuck qi" can start flowing again. Qi flowing smoothly through the body is what gives you good health and wellness.
They are also used to create a more beautiful appearance. Check out our Ying Yu Jade Exclusive "Frown Ease Wrinkle Reducers".
Ying Yu Jade rollers are pure and natural jade. They are hand carved and assembled and each will be slightly different. Our jade carver buys the rough jade stone from the jade mine, and hand carves them with minimal machinery to retain the natural-ness of the jade. Jade is stone, and stone that is hand crafted might not always be "perfect" like molded or plastics are. There may be some unevenness in the jade, from the natural stone or carving procedure. You may see small nicks in the jade where it is connected to the metal, but this will not affect the therapeutic work of using the jade roller. Overall the jade rollers are polished smoothly.
Jade rollers are made to be adjustable. If it "falls apart", it is not damage, it is because it is made so the user can adjust it. You can adjust the roller holder part by squeezing it to make the roller tighter, or loosening it so it rolls more easily. If it makes "squeak" when roller, add a drop of mineral oil, baby oil to each side, move the roller part until it is quiet. If the roller detaches from the rod that holds the roller part, it can be attached with super glue. These jade rollers are made so they can be adjusted and cleaned well between use, so this is not considered to be damage, it is the nature of the way genuine Chinese medicine practitioner jade rollers are made.
If you want genuine and natural "real jade" rollers, Ying Yu Jade is the site to order from. We introduced these to USA in 1999, and now they are sold everywhere. Ying Yu Jade rollers are made by our jade carver in China who purchased the jade directly from the jade mine and makes them to Chinese medicine standards.
