In the realm of crystal healing, jade is associated with protecting against negative energy and balancing your chi (or qi), your body’s energetic life force. According to Chinese medicine, any number of physical and mental symptoms from anxiety to fatigue to actual pain can indicate that your qi is out of whack. Practices like acupuncture and jade rolling can help remedy this, as do general self-care practices like eating well, exercising, and getting enough sleep.
But even if that kind of spirituality isn’t your speed, you can still see many physical benefits from jade rolling. By rolling the jade across your facial muscles, says Chang, “you increase blood circulation, assist lymphatic drainage, and diminish the appearance of fine lines.” Like other methods of facial massage, it even helps your products penetrate more deeply into your skin.
