Bian contouring massage stone by Wild Herbary
Bian stone is thought to have been made by the impact of meteorites upon the Earth’s surface in China’s Western Shandong region during the Cretaceous period approximately 65-66 million years ago. The result of this impact combined the local stone with over 40 minerals which elevated its potential for healing and benefits for overall health.
Our Bian contouring massage stone helps with lymphatic drainage, blood flow, circulation, toning and sculpting the face, neck and body.
It’s made out of 100% natural stone, each one individually cut by hand.
As each one is hand-cut there will be variations in the thicknesses of each stone and some may have visible fine white line mineral deposits.
Dimensions: 105mm x 55mm x 45mm x 70mm
Please note: If dropped on a hard surface, the Bian stone may crack or break.
Each of our Bian contouring massage stones comes in a white cotton drawstring bag.
Bian stone is said to release ultrasound pulsations, far infrared rays and negative ions, all of which contribute to antioxidant and anti-aging effects on our cells.
Today we know that Bian stone has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and analgesic qualities. It also activates blood circulation and has a heat-clearing and detoxifying effect.
Bian stone was first used in ancient China and is one of the first medical application tools, said to be the ‘Ancestor of Gua Sha’.
What is Gua Sha?
Gua Sha is a body and face scraping technique that’s used for a variety of health benefits. It’s a part of the system of Traditional Chinese Medicine with mentions in the Shanghan Lun, a Chinese medical text on illness from 220 BCE. Gua Sha involves the use of a tool to stroke the skin and increase circulation. This may promote detoxification, relax tight muscles, and encourage healing.
