Jade Hot and Cold Stone Massage
Jade is a symbol of purity and serenity. In Asian culture, jade is known for having healing properties, which relax the nervous system and aid in removal of toxins. Your body is massaged using real jade stones, alternating temperatures bringing deep relaxation, produce vitality, release toxins, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and promote optimum health.
Jade is considered the health, wealth and longevity stone. Jade stone massage is different to the standard hot stone massage you might be familiar with. Due its composition of iron, magnesium and calcium, jade is the only massage stone that can hold both hot and cold temperatures equally well.
One stroke with a heated jade stone is equivalent to seven strokes by hand. The combination therapy acts much like a vascular flush, comparable to hydrotherapy and thermotherapy. It increases circulation, flushes the internal organs and circulatory system helping elimination of toxins from the body.
During the treatment, massage therapists use heated and cooled jade stones on your skin in combination with different strokes and techniques. The unique properties of jade allow the stone to hold heat and cold evenly. The heated stones can promote vascular constriction and flushing, allowing the therapist to work deeper into the muscle groups, while cold stones in specific areas can provide release in areas of acute tension or pain.
Alternating temperatures can also be used in conjunction to work on a specific treatment area for better results.
After your massage, you’re likely to feel deeply at ease. Jade stone massage aims for both therapeutic relaxation and deep healing in a single treatment.
