Kansa and Ayurveda

The kansa wand is used with various movements, including circular, zig-zag, sweeping movements and figure 8.  The most important aspects when massaging with the kansa wand are to start of the right hand side and then move to the left hand side, ensuring the same amount of time and number of strokes is used on both sides.

The kansa wand can be used in a professional setting for clients and is also a wonderful at-home massage tool. It is important that the skin has been well cleansed before any treatment with the kansa wand.

Facial massage

When massaging the face, ensure that downward and inward strokes are gentle and upward and outward strokes slightly firmer.

Body massage

The kansa wand can be used over the body to relive stress and tension in muscles. It is also wonderful for the scalp to aid in relaxation and relive headaches and eye strain.

Foot massage

The traditional use of the Kansa wand on the feet aids in removal of toxins, relieves tired and aching feet and improves energy.

We recommend using AWE Cosmeceuticals zithila Multi Oil with the kansa wand.

Traditionally the feet are massaged with organic ghee, however a neutral oil is a suitable substitute, if preferred. Essential oils may be added for particular ailments.

Firstly - don't worry! This is completely normal.

Sometimes there is a greying of the skin when using the kansa wand and there is no need to be alarmed if this happens.

When ‘greying’ occurs it is usually excess acidity (pitta) in the body. It may also relate to toxins absorbed via the environment and/or imbalanced pH of the skin’s surface.

Cleanse the skin thoroughly after treatment to remove any greying. We recommend AWE Cosmeceuticals vimala Gentle Cleanser.

Copper is anti-microbial so it is not favourable to microbes. After use, simply use tea tree oil to wipe over the wand and use a cosmetic grade clay rubbed with water to keep a nice shine to the metal. A mild castille soap in cool water is also acceptable.

Do not use abrasives or harsh chemicals on the kansa wand. The kansa wand can be kept in a UV cabinet for sanitation in a professional setting.
