Minerals, gems, and crystals have been used for millennia to enhance emotional, physical and spiritual balance. How the ancients knew, we may never know for sure, but these cultures certainly considered stones a major aspect of their existence. Chinese medicine commonly incorporates the use of healing crystals – including crystal-tipped needles used in acupuncture and Pranic healing sessions. These traditions hail from nearly 5000 years of practice.
1.Use light pressure with the jade tool. If the skin starts to get pink or red, it’s too firm and not working on the lymph. Lymph responds to light pressure because it is close to the surface. If your pressure is too firm or vigorous, you risk bruising, coming up on the skin, so please be gentle with your beautiful face!
2. Keep the Jade tool at a 15-degree angle to the skin—almost flat but not quite. This covers more surface and gives a gentle pull on the skin, which is also necessary for the correct technique.
3. All of our lymph drains into an area called “terminus” in the little dips right above the middle of each collarbone; we can think of this area as the “dump.” The directions of the lymphatic pathways on the face are from the center of the face, out toward the hairline, so we want to move all of the stagnant lymph or the “trash” out to the outer sides of the face and then sweep it all down the neck to the “dump” above the collarbone.
