Why “ROLLER BEAUTY”?
The action of rolling leads to increased circulation and rids your skin of toxins via lymphatic drainage. Stimulating lymphatic drainage also inhibits the leakage of fatty acids, thus minimizing the accumulation of adipose fat (which leads to inflammation, and extended inflammation leads to sagging).
Increased blood flow means your skin will radiate with Qi (life energy), rolling will act detoxifying to the interstitial fluid (the bathwater surrounding cells- where they excrete their toxins into) and lead to more brightness, clarity, and a glowing complexion. Facial muscles will improve in their tone as you roll, effectively carving out the cheekbones and jawline when working deeper into the muscular tissue on the cheeks.
Wrinkles will appear smoothed as we are releasing the tension patters and stress that is held in the face.
Clients should know: You have an ocean of interstitial fluid, which detoxifies itself vis rivers or lymph pathways. How much movement you cause here controls your ability to eliminate toxins. The immune (lymphatic) system has no central pump, so unless you move the fluid yourself, (via deep breathing, some forms of exercise, or jade rolling) it becomes stagnant and holds toxins in the tissue.
I also attached a blog post below showing how rolling reduces sagging associated with the accumulation of adipose fat tissue, as it theoretically strengthens the walls of the lymph vessels.. it also references a really interesting article from Osaka University!
Essentially, your facial muscles have been activated by rolling to give you a toned and uplifted look, and your immune system has awoken to do it’s job by sending toxins to the kidneys. The client’s skin will pink up, showing their complexion is detoxing from the inside out. Simultaneously, the meridian system and energy points along these pathways restores alignment. (I am not an energy medicine expert so I do not go in depth as far as how it effects the energy body).
Pro Tips: Two rollers can be used in tandem during a facial. To provide a unique sensation, you may cool down the roller by placing the roller in the fridge to reduce dark circles. Placing the gemstones in warm water can help penetrate product more deeply into the skin by “trapping” the ingredients there as we stimulate the area, it improves the effectivity of any skincare product!
Start with pumping above the collar bone to encourage the filtering through lymph pathways prior to rolling. Encourage clients to drink lots of water after a gemstone rolling session.
Caution: Clients undergoing cancer treatment or who have blood pressure concerns should consult their naturopathic or medical doctor before rolling.
