Jade Stone Massage
There are two types of Jade Stone, Nephrite and
Jadeite. Nephrite is the type used for Jade massage. The stones have been
mined, cut, shaped various ways and polished. These smooth stones are nonporous
and do not harbour bacteria. Because the stones come in a variety of shapes,
sizes, widths it makes them very versatile to use on multiple muscle groups in
various ways. A Jade Stone Massage incorporates both heated and cooled stones
where some are placed on or under the body as well as used as a massage tool. (You
can choose to have just hot stones used).
One stroke of a heated stone is the equivalent of
seven with hands and chilled stones are 80 times more powerful than heated
stones. Alternating hot and cold stones is a vascular gymnastics for your body

Fire cupping can be used
in addition to regular massage or on its own.
First of all oil is
applied to the body to help create glide and then Angie lights an alcohol swab

placed on the body. (No, she will not
burn you). As the cup cools off it
creates suction and pulls the skin, fascia and muscle. Cupping has been described as a reverse
massage. During a regular massage
muscles are pushed, cupping causes the muscles to be pulled. The cups may be left in one position while
another part of the body is being worked on, or the cups can be moved or
dragged across the surface of the skin.
Cupping can leave marks, which
indicates that the stagnation has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to
the surface, allowing fresh oxygenated blood to nourish and heal the underlying
areas, and the lymphatic system will then sweep the debris away.
Client may feel that the area worked on is tender
for a couple of days, but have said the muscle feels less tight and they have
more range of motion.
It increases circulation to the area. Helps loosen tight muscles. It can have the same benefits as a deep
Try a hot bamboo/rattan massage. Different lengths and diameters of bamboo or
rattan are warmed by a heating pad and rotated throughout the massage. The sticks are glided, rolled, kneaded and
pivoted over the muscle groups and the application process melts away tension
and creates a deeply relaxing and soothing experience.
