WHEN INTRODUCED TO THE KANSA
Kansa tools are prepared from a combination of metals, principally copper and tin. This blend is called bronze in the West and kansa in India. Kansa was also used to form holy statues, bells and Tibetan singing bowls, all known for having the exceptional power to heal and refurbish balance in the skin and body.

Kansa tools initiate from the Indus Valley, a place many think through to be the cradle for all Ayurveda curing techniques. A kansa wand producer in Northern India illuminated that while kansa vataki was known throughout India, there was also a custom of using these massage tools from head to toe.

When it is applied to the skin, the golden metal feels cool, but quickly it regulates body temperature. The wand warms up rapidly, and feels like an energized remedial hand on the skin. Bronze is an exceptional electrode of electricity, as well as subtle body currents such as acupuncture heights and the chakra grid. However, unlike other tools, kansa does not hold sensations, so no energy clearing method is looked-for between treatments. Tools are washed by wiping the wand with a mix of white kaolin clay and water. This removes any oils used during dealing (a wipe containing tea tree oil or any bactericide recommended by your cosmetology board can be used as well). Then the tool is rinsed with cool (never hot) water.
The Kansa Wand Face Acupressure reduces stress and offers a gentle face-lifting therapy, using a bronze-capped massage wand and biological natural massage oils.
This massage was shaped at Diamond Way Ayurveda in San Luis Obispo, CA by Robert and Melanie Saches. It developed from their success with Pedi Karma™ Cure, a massage treatment that uses a larger Kansa Wand for routine foot reflexology.
The bronze is a holy metal alloy. Kansa and it is created from pure tin and copper. This blend of metals is known in Ayurveda, a old-style healing system in India, as “Healing Metal”.
A woody, hand-carved handle makes using enough pressure, delicate rubbing or rapid friction easy on the face, shoulders, and neck areas.
Organic Jojoba oil, along with essential oils, is used in the massage, which helps the wand to float carefully over the face, providing a warm, calming, and relaxed feeling.
The Kansa Wand offers gentle rubbing to massage a muscle which helps pull sourness from the tissues. As it is used on the face, oils will repeatedly get grey or black if acids are existing in the skin.
Another benefit of this treatment is the subtle electrical conductivity of the bronze metal, which explains how this remedy progresses the body’s natural electrical balancing system.
Tools like this have been used for centuries in India to boost health and strength, and to raise energy, and reduce stress. They are supposed to be essential to ideal health and well-being.

TIPS
Skin should be thoroughly cleansed before oil is applied and the massage begins. When skin is more acidic, the oil turns grey. This may be a sign of stress or makeup with a poor pH, the result of working around chemicals (many nail technicians have a lot of greyness, especially if their workplace is poorly ventilated) or muscle tension. Any greyness is easily wiped away with a gentle cleanser.

Clients are fascinated with these magical tools following treatment. Wands make a great retail item, as they come in a variety of sizes. Many clients purchase a smaller wand to use at home. The kansa wand has a golden surface and is set with a sustainably harvested, hand-carved wooden handle. It makes a handy stress buster, instant face lifter and great travel companion. Thus, like the high resonance of sacred Tibetan bells and gongs, kansa uplifts the mind, body and spirit.
