Jade rollers, named for their beautiful jade stone, increase lymphatic flow and drainage + enhance circulation on the face. You simply hold them in your hand and gently massage your face. They have long been used during acupuncture sessions to enhance the effects of cosmetic acupuncture. The Jade stone is rolled along the meridians to enhance the movement of Qi and reduce the risk of bruising from the needles. A fun tidbit, we keep ours in the fridge for an added cooling sensation.
