My first trip to China was in 1999 to learn Qi Healing and Chinese Medicine with my qigong group. The Qi Healing and Chinese medicine treatments were so helpful for me personally, I returned to learn more.  On my second trip, I arranged for a Chinese doctor to give me treatment for jet lag so I would feel better and enjoy my time in Beijing more.  The treatment was scraping with a jade gua sha tool and acupuncture.  I was amazed at the use of jade for balancing qi energy and that using these jade health tools was used by Chinese people for their every day health care and wellness routines.  I took a selection of the jade tools including jade rollers, jade gua sha tools, jade
"needles" for working acupoints.  The doctor and I arranged to meet a jade supplier in Dandong on my third trip.  The jade supplier
took us to Xiuyan "jade country".  We visited the jade mines, met the jade carvers and their families, and I placed my first order for
jade rollers, jade gua sha tools, and then for jade eggs and jade ben wa balls for women.  These jade health tools are not the standard jade tools available in jade markets.  They are high quality, genuine and natural Chinese jade, the kind of jade that has been used in China and Asia for centuries.  They are hand made by my selected jade carver and his family, and shipped to me in USA for my Ying Yu Jade
web site.  You can view the collection, read more about jade and how these tools are used, and purchase on Ying Yu Jade.
