The Ayurvedic healing and beauty secret
What are Kansa Wands?
Kansa Wand Massage is a 5000-year-old Ayurvedic Wellness Therapy from the Indus Valley. The Kansa Wand is a wooden hand tool with a bronze dome at one end. The movement of the Wand over the body will help to remove toxins, revitalise the skin and balance the body’s natural energy centres known in Ayurvedic medicine as Marmas.
Kansa Wand Massage is a relaxation massage. It’s quite unlike traditional pressure massage techniques. The application of the wands is far more gentle and the manipulation of the body’s energy centres is subtle, though the positive effects can be dramatic. This massage is an excellent option for anyone carrying physical or emotional trauma. It’s also perfect for those wanting to reset after a long flight or prolonged period of physical activity. The massage is great for aching muscles or as a beauty treatment for the face. Regular massage can be a powerful healing aid for long term injuries and also inspire physical and emotional wellbeing.
What are the Benefits?
The vital energy centres of the body (Marmas) can become blocked due to physical and emotional trauma. Kansa Massage opens the Marmas helping the body to relax and let go of stress.
The metal wand detoxifies by drawing out acidity from the skin. Kansa Massage balances the skin’s pH level reducing inflammation and restoring health.
Working on the Marma points in the face the wands help tighten and tone the skin reducing puffiness, reddening and smoothing out wrinkles.
The combination of movement and heat generated by the Kansa Wand enhances blood-flow to deliver vital oxygen and nutrients to the muscles.
The gentle movements and light pressure of this massage combine with the soothing fragrances of the essential oils to quickly create an intense feeling of relaxation similar to a meditative state.
Kansa Wand Therapist
Navi was born in London but her passion for holistic therapy began in the birthplace of Kansa. Childhood trips to the remote family home in Northern India always included long hours spent meditating in the temple or in the company of her enigmatic grandmother learning about the powerful healing properties of Kansa.
Today, Navi practices here in Siem Reap. The proximity to the sacred temples of Angkor provides a continuous flow of positive energy that can be channelled by the wands to magically enhance the Kansa experience.
