Do Not Use Jade Gua Sha Tools On Your Face!

 Do not use jade gua sha tools on your face!

During this holiday Christmas season, gifts often show up online.  And one of the "popular gifts" I keep seeing is "jade gua sha tools for your face".  But jade gua sha tools were never made or used by Chinese medicine doctors to be used on the face.  That's because using jade gua sha "scraping tools" can damage delicate skin on the face, and small delicate blood vessels.  And that makes the face "look worse".

If you are looking for healing jade to use on the face, Ying Yu Jade sells jade face masks and jade rollers with a small roller end.  

These can be used by spas and therapists for facial beauty and facial work  They are used by therapists for face, eye health and headache management, especially sinus problems.  They are also for person use.  If you use a jade roller for health, wrinkle reducer, spending a few minutes with the jade stone mask add extra qi healing benefits.

Ying Yu Jade introduced Chinese jade to USA 24 years ago.  We sell only genuine and natural Chinese jade made to Chinese medicine standards.

Vaginal Dryness Can Be Fatal and Jade Eggs and Ben Wa Balls Help

 Medscape posted today that vaginal dryness can be fatal.  The thing that kills women is GSM.

GSM — what does it mean? It's not just a little vaginal dryness. It turns out that all of the genital and urinary symptoms from menopause just get worse over time. The bladder, the urethra, and the vagina have lots of hormone receptors, including estrogen and testosterone. When the body no longer makes those hormones, the system doesn't work very well, and genital and urinary symptoms occur that just get worse over time without treatment. Unlike hot flashes, which tend to go away, GSM does not.

And what kills women is urinary tract infection.

So it's important are aware of vaginal dryness and how to treat it. The most common method is estrogen cream.  But that can cause side effects.

Jade eggs  and ben wa balls are designed for women who want an alternative for kegel exercise and to improve vaginal strength and lubrication.  In additional to kegel exercise, using jade eggs or benwa balls helps increase vaginal lubrication and moisture for every day comfort as well as for sexual intercourse.

A Chinese doctor and I designed these to be the best size for women. He says that using the eggs is "vaginal kung fu" because it strengthens and tones and gives that part of the body more power and feeling of well being. Doing kegal exercises is easier when you have an object for feedback about what you're doing. Most people who do kegals aren't doing them with enough effort, and these can help. And jade is related to the body qi, energy. Jade energy is healing to the body, and jade qi and body qi work together. That's one of the reasons Chinese people love jade. It's natural stone, smooth, and is compatible with the body.


When you have vaginal dryness, or approaching menopause, get your genuine and natural Chinese jade ben wa ball and/or eggs.

Fascia Care for Health and How Jade Helps

 Body fascia is multi-layered, and it plays an active role in the body. It supports tissues and organs, lessens friction, eases muscle tension, and tightens up reflexively. It also helps your bloodstream, bone tissue, and skeletal muscles.

When it’s healthy, your fascia is slippery and smooth, and it stretches with you as you move. If it’s not doing well, it can get thicker, stickier, drier, and tighter. Because fascia is so important to your body’s functions, problems with it can cause you a lot of pain.

Myofascial pain happens when the same muscle is tightened and released over and over again from repeated motion or tension from stress. Symptoms can include deep muscle pain that doesn’t go away, sensitive knots in your muscle, and inability to sleep because of the pain. It’s different from muscle tension pain because it gets worse over time.

There is a thick section of fascia on the bottom of your foot called the plantar fascia. When it gets inflamed, it causes intense heel pain. You’re most likely to feel plantar fasciitis when you walk in the morning after a night of being off your feet or when you stand up after sitting for a long time.

Do your best to keep your fascia well stretched. The more flexible it is, the less likely it is to cause you pain. Move around, stretch frequently, and try to keep good posture if you do a lot of sitting or standing. This helps relieve fascia adhesions.

If you have fascia pain that isn’t going away with stretching, try to loosen trigger points by trying using jade rollers to release trigger points and help muscles relax. 

Jade rollers have been used Chinese medicine for centuries, and still are used by people who appreciate Chinese medicine.  The jade is natural and healing, with the Qi energy.

Acupuncture for Healing? Jade Acu-Roller is Alternative

 If you think acupuncture would help your health, wellness and medical problems, but cannot get "real" acupuncture, a Chinese jade acu-roller is a helpful alternative.

Ying Yu Jade rollers are made from traditional genuine and natural Chinese jade that has been used for centuries for health, healing, wellness.  The "needles" are carved to tradition Chinese medicine standards.

You can search online for the acupuncture points related to your problem.  Then find a chart to locate them.  Then use the acu-roller to slowly, with firmness, roll over the areas.  Always roll from "top to bottom", one way.  If you have nerve problems, you can have someone helpful us it on your back, spine, from top to bottom of spine.

You can also use it for wellness.  I use my jade acu-roller daily, starting at my shoulders, neck, upper arms, and use pressure that "feels right".  This stimulates at acu-points and keeps them in good condition.  

Also, jade itself has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries, because of the healing Qi energy.

Ying Yu Jade also sells regular jade rollers, small-medium-large, and "acu-rings" to use on your hand.

Jade for Protection in Hot Humid Summer Weather

 This summer has been very hot, humid and rainy so far, and it's only the "middle of Summer".  

One of the big concerns now is that mosquitoes and multiplied quickly.  And they are carrying viruses that may start another pandemic.

When I see people walking for exercise in this heat and humidity, I often see the people "smacking themself" because they are probably trying to avoid the mosquitoes.  

When I go outdoors, I always wear my jade.  My classic jade bangle is a genuine and natural Burmese jadeite "old mine" carved-all-around imperial green bangle.  The color and carving give me good Qi energy for my activity in the heat and humidity.  And in this weather now, I also wear a Chinese jade black bangle bracelet.  Black jade has Qi energy for protection.  My black jade bangle is "Double Dragons Hold Pearl" and protect.  I don't have to wear insect repellant on my upper body.

If you are not sure what is the best jade for you, view all the jade on our jade stores and choose the one(s) that appeal to you the most.  The attraction is the Qi your body needs most.

What Kind of Jade is Good to Wear for Summer?

 Jade has "qi energy" for health and healing.  It has been used in China and Asia for centuries.  Ying Yu Jade introduced and started selling jade online 23 years ago.  And as the person who purchased all the jade, most of it while traveling in China, I get a good "feel" of the Qi energy.

White jade is calming and cooling for hot summer.  

And black jade has qi energy for protection.  So black jade is good to wear if you live in a "weather risky" area in summer.  We live in Florida, and with long and unpredictable hurricane season, I wear a black jade bangle bracelet on my "other" wrist when storms are coming.

I wear the white jade on my left wrist, and black jade on my right wrist.

Of course classic green jade has all-over good qi energy, so if you can have only one jade bangle, green is the best.
