In China, jade has a long history, dating as far back as the Shang dynasty, to promote healing. The Jade stones can help relax the nervous system and is known to contain anti-inflammatory properties.
Jade Stones are different than other stones used in massage – basalt (black) or marble – as they are non-porous and do not absorb and/or harbor bacteria. Because of its composition, the stones will hold heat and cold consistently and longer than basalt or marble. One massage stroke with a heated stone is equivalent to seven strokes with your hands and one stroke with a cold stone is up to eighty times more powerful.
Jade can be incorporated in both therapeutic and wellness massages along with Acupuncture, at no extra charge.
