A massage wand is a smooth handheld object. They are used to channel energy in reflexology and massage. They will have a crystal point on one side with a smooth bottom on the other side. They are used to massage certain pressure points on the body to relieve stress and tension and heal your ailments. Different types of stones may be used to massage for different ailments. Quartz, rutilated quartz, amethyst, and rose quartz are the most commonly used stones, although stones like labradorite and others are used on occasion.
Wands were the traditional tools for healers and shaman. They focus and direct energy through the tip or round end. Some believe the shaman would use the massage wand to be able to concentrate the positive energy where it is needed or extract and dissipate negative energy.
Recently wands have become a popular healing tool. They are used in massage and sometimes in conjunction with aromatherapy oils. Pressure points on the body called chakras are often massaged to heal and improve quality of life for the recipient. This acupressure healing is good for dealing with stress. By applying gentle pressure to these areas, negative energy is released from the body.
Wands are a popular healing tool. The stone may be chosen for its particular benefits and energies. Crystal massage works at a deep level to assist in healing a variety of ailments.
Canadian jade is a type of nephrite jade that ranges in color from light green to dark green and sometimes in a black. The jade is found all over British Columbia, including Cassiar, Dease Lake, Hazelton and sometimes in the Frazer and Bridge Rivers, to name a few. The Canadian jade mines are the largest jade producing mines in the world. As many Canadian mines are slowly being depleted, the price of jade keeps going up as it becomes scarcer.
Jade is a hard stone and is very difficult to carve, diamond or Carborundum tools and files must be used. Green jade is prized as is chrome jade (jade with bright green flecks running through it) and cat's eye jade (jade with a chatoyant flash running through it.) Whatever type of jade you prefer, a good consistent color and a good depth of color is important.
