The benefits of jade facial massage

With crystals and tools fast becoming game-changing essentials in the beauty sector, this ingenious skin care technique delivers healthy, radiant skin after just one-minute of use. It’s easy, inexpensive, combines with all existing beauty routines and is completely natural.

The award-winning  Hayo’u Beauty Restorer™ is a jade facial tool that provides an instant, visible solution for your complexion. After just one-minute of use, 82% of women saw an immediate, positive effect.

The Beauty Restorer™ can be used for three iconic Chinese techniques: Àn fa (press-hold), Gua sha (press-stroke) and Acupressure (press-turn). Together they deliver a noticeable improvement to your skin after just one-minute of use.

Press-hold (Àn fa)

The Beauty Restorer™ is made from Xiuyan jade. This type of jade has been used in Chinese facial massage for thousands of years and revered for its restorative, cooling properties.

Simply press-holding the jade reduces inflammation and boosts lymphatic drainage. So, hold over the eyes to relieve fatigue, alleviate eye bags and twitching eye muscles. Or, use over any other area to alleviate stress related symptoms such as headache, flushing, skin conditions and throbbing temples.

Research studies show that certified jade radiates far-infrared rays, invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of tissues, muscles and bone in the human body. These rays are believed to be deeply healing, increasing oxygenation and regeneration of the blood, which is why we advocate press-holding the Beauty Restorer™ to your skin.

Press-stroke (Gua sha)

The technique of Gua sha is a simple press-stroke action along the facial contours as shown. This beauty treatment has been deployed across Asia for thousands of years, as it has a unique ability to encourage the circulation under the skin, bringing nutrients and boosting collagen and elastin.

Rather than applying a cream or serum to nourish skin from the outside, you are activating your own body to do the work from the inside out.

This simple self-massage technique has been shown in studies to boost microcirculation by 400%. It stimulates the dermis to support collagen and elastin production, manipulates areas of tension to relax facial muscles, exponentially increases blood and aids lymphatic flow, resulting in a brighter, healthier, more radiant complexion (8 out of 10 consumers agreed).

Press-turn (acupressure)

There is a growing realisation that we can only be our most beautiful selves when we are in a healthy state.This aligns with what Chinese Medicine advocates: namely that beauty is an external manifestation of our internal health. In Chinese medicine facial beauty is linked to the organs – the state of our health is literally reflected in our face. Activating acupressure points on your face will support your organs internally.

In the Beauty Restorer Ritual video, we have included certain acupressure points for a comprehensive treatment.

  • Working the points at the sides of the lips plumps the skin, which loses elasticity as we age
  • Pressing the sides of the nose aids elimination of waste and relieves Sinusitis
  • Pressing the sides of the eyes releases stress and tension and alleviates headaches
  • Pressing under the eyes helps reduce eye bags and brightens the eyes
  • Pressing the chin relaxes the jaw
  • Pressing the forehead is a great point for stress relief

Please note, you should not perform Gua sha over broken skin, broken veins, moles, cuts, bruises, severe acne or rosacea. Results vary according to age, strength of body, skin type and medical conditions. At no point should treatment feel painful. Always start gently, observing the reaction to your skin and proceed with caution. If in any doubt, contact us at info@hayoumethod.com or seek medical advice. This information is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment for specific medical conditions.
