The Healing Properties of Jade Stone
Even though more and more people are adopting holistic practices like acupuncture and drinking green tea these days, Westerners tend to be a bit skeptical of ancient medicinal practices — especially when it comes to healing crystals and gemstones.
But the use of gems and crystals has a long, rich history. And one of the most popular gems used in the practice of gemstone and crystal healing is green jade.
Ancient artifacts and deity masks were made from jade rock in Central America, New Zealand, Mexico and South America.
In China, jade has been used extensively, prized for its beautiful emerald green color, carved into beads, burial artifacts, incense burners, gems, musical instruments vessels and pendants.
The history of jade and its uses is fascinating, but what intrigues me the most about this stone is its healing properties.
In this article, I’ll share a bit about the history and meaning of jade.
But more importantly, I’m going to tell you about the ways this incredible little stone can help ease your pain — in just minutes.
Jade is a semi-precious stone prized for its purported metaphysical and healing properties for more than 6,000 years. It has been called the ultimate “dream stone,” believed to be infused with divine energy which enables it to bless everything it touches.
In the ancient practice of Ayurveda, jade is one of the most important stones for balancing the heart chakra. (A chakra is a wheel of energy throughout the body.)
In ancient lore, cultures from the ancient Chinese to the Aztecs prized jade even more than gold for its beauty.
The Chinese revered jade for its ability to bring about overall well-being, emotional healing, good luck and good fortune, and prosperity and abundance. They also believed keeping jade was connected to living a long life.
Ancient shamans also believed jade could treat kidney and adrenal gland disorders.
These beliefs have carried into modern times. Many people today believe that jade is a protective stone that can ward off negative energies and negative thoughts.
That it stabilizes the personality, and promotes self-reliance and self-sufficiency.
It’s one of the reasons jade jewelry is still so popular today.
While jade comes in many colors — there’s black jade, white jade, yellow jade, lavender jade, red jade and blue jade — it is the green jade that has historically been the most popular.
Jade is prized by modern practitioners of crystal healing not only for its supposed metaphysical properties, but also for the effects that it has on the physical body.
It’s believed that jade stone can:
- Aid in detoxification by strengthening the body’s filtration and cleansing systems
- Boost the immune system
- Improve the heart, lungs, and thymus
- Stimulate Qi–what the Chinese call your “life force”
It’s also been said that jade has a healing and calming effect on the nervous system. That it can soothe the kidneys, gallbladder and liver.
There are even claims that it can benefit the renal system and help get rid of kidney stones.
If you’re thinking this all sounds like New-Age hooey, I understand your skepticism.
The scientifically proven healing property of jade
There is one property of jade that has been clinically tested and proven to benefit your health in an enormous way.
Put to use, it could forever change the way you treat your pain.
It turns out that jade has an unmatched ability to conduct far infrared heat.
How does that help you? Let me explain…
You’ve probably heard of far-infrared heat (FIR) before. Or maybe you’ve heard of far-infrared cameras and photography.
Far infrared has a longer wave than infrared. The waves can’t be seen — only experienced as heat.
This type of wave is responsible for the deep-penetrating heat you soak up when you lay out in the sun, but without the harmful UV rays. Far infrared heat is isolated and has no dangerous effects whatsoever.
It turns out, jade and far infrared heat get along extremely well. Jade stones absorb the FIR waves and distribute them evenly and continuously better than almost any other material in the world.
With proper application, heated jade stones have been proven to relieve:
- Back pain
- Deep muscle tissue pain
- Arthritis pain
Basically any of the body pain you’d normally take painkillers or get massage therapy for.
But how can a normal person like you and me benefit from the combined healing power or jade and far-infrared heat?
Sounds complicated, right?
Actually, it’s not complicated at all.
All it requires is a specialized far-infrared heating pad.
A far-infrared heating pad that incorporates jade stones is like no other heating pad in the world.
When the special FIR heat passes through the jade stones, it allows the heat to penetrate deeper than a traditional heating pad, getting deep into your muscles, joints and organs.
It increases your blood circulation–which leads directly to pain relief and healing–in 30 minutes or less.
The incredible healing benefits of far-infrared heat therapy was first discovered by NASA — and it was kept under wraps for decades.
