Ushvani originally added the Jade Stone Ritual as a celebration of Chinese New Year (http://blog.peelwilliams.com/ushvani-launch-jade-stone-ritual-chinese-new-year/) however the treatment proved so popular that the Chelsea based spa has added it as a permanent fixture to their impressively bespoke treatment menu.
The Jade Stone Ritual is designed to bring the therapeutic Earth elements together with our highly popular Balinese Massage, creating a deeply relaxing and effective spa ritual. Jade is frequently used throughout Asian and Chinese medicine and regarded as an effective tool to ease muscle tension, increase the circulation and stimulate the lymphatic system. Jade also increases the flow of Chi life force energy and in traditional Chinese medicine this is believed to prevent a multitude of health issues and create a positive state of mind.
Jade stones can be applied warm or cool directly on the skin to increase the benefits of massage therapy. Warm stones allow for any deep seated tension to be released, while cool stones have a detoxifying and invigorating effect on the lymphatic and nervous system.
The Jade Stone Ritual begins with a deep breathing sequence and inhalation of our Ushvani Balm to clear the mind to enable deep relaxation. Your Spa Therapist will then begin by applying the warm Jade stones to specific areas of tension. The Balinese Massage will then be performed combining our signature massage techniques with the use of warm and cool Jade stones. To complete the massage a warm Coconut and Kemiri Body Mask is applied and a soothing facial and scalp massage is then performed using cool Jade stones. This relaxing facial and scalp massage provides a contouring and lifting effect that also stimulates the lymphatic system restoring the skin’s natural radiance. The Ritual is completed with a traditional Malay Mandi shower. Your Therapist will then provide you with aftercare to continue the results at home.
