When I traveled to China, I always met with my Chinese jade doctor who worked with my jade carver to make jade gua sha tools, jade rollers, other jade health tools to Chinese medicine standards for Ying Yu Jade. He took me to a Chinese hospital and showed me patients being treated for nerve damage, muscle damage and more with these jade rollers and gua sha.
Recently a friend who is recovering from a stroke and goes to physical therapy was frustrated because she is doing everything to get stronger, but cannot get nerves in lower leg and foot to get the feeling again. She is not a "jade lover" but agreed to try using the jade acu-roller, shown in the photo and a jade gua sha scraper. Chinese jade has been used for centuries in China for healing because the jade has good "qi energy". She uses the gua sha to "scrape" the entire leg where the nerves are damaged until she "feels" activity there. Then she rollers the large roller with small "needles" over the same area until she "feels" more. She does this several times daily, and is finally getting "feeling" back because muscle is improving and nerves are healing. Now she can do more physical therapy to improve the muscle strength.
Ying Yu Jade introduced jade rollers and gua sha tools to USA 23 years ago. Of course, now there is a lot of "jade" gua sha and rollers made with "fake jade". But if you want genuine and natural Chinese jade, you are guaranteed to get this on Ying Yu Jade.
Ying Yu Jade has a variety of jade rollers, large medium and small, as well as the large heavier "acu roller" that has the "needles" like used for acupuncture.
And there is a selection of jade gua sha tools to choose from. They all work well, and you choose the tool that appeals to you, because your qi is attracted to it.

Join the Kegel Revolution : The Right Way to Do a Kegel Exercise
Most women have been taught that to do a Kegel pelvic floor exercise, they should simply squeeze the muscles you feel when you stop the flow of urine. And most men are under the impression that pelvic floor exercise isn't for them.
Pelvic floor weakness affects both men and women. And what we have learned is that squeezing the muscles that stop the flow of urine often leads to tightening the wrong muscles which can lead to medical problems, including urinary incontinence and pain during sex, pelvic organ prolapse, and more problems.
The Right Way to Do Kegel Exercise
Imagine the pelvic floor muscles between your two sitting bones. Inhale, and while you exhale, draw the muscles together as if they were two halves of an elevator door closing to meet in the middle. Once the "door is closed", lift the elevator up and then release. Now, imagine the pelvic floor muscles between your pubic bone and tailbone. Inhale, and when you exhale draw those muscles together in the same elevator door fashion, lift the elevator, then release. Now draw all four elevator doors together at once, meeting at one point in the middle, then lift and release. Repeat five times, then rest. Practice this 2-3 times per week.
It's tricky to locate your pelvic floor muscles. Start by picturing them as a "hammock" that's slung between your sitting bones, and another between your pubic bone and tailbone. To feel them, stand tall, feet shoulder width apart, and firm the outer shins in to your midline. This gives you greater ability to firm the outer hips, which in turn gives you increased access to your pelvic floor.

Chinese Lunar New Years starts February 1, 2022. It is the "Year of the Tiger" (Water element)
What is the lucky color for 2022 New Year?
Cerulean blue, fiery red, mint green and imperial yellow are the lucky colors for 2022. These colors are derived from the four elements of Feng Shui — wood (primary element of the tiger), water (element of the year 2022), fire, earth and the Yang polarity
People born in a year of the Tiger are predicted to be brave, competitive, unpredictable, and confident.
