Kansa is from the Sanskrit word Kansya, meaning 'Bronze'.
The domed tool is made of Kansa, a sacred bronze recognized in India as a therapeutic metal. The smooth metal heats up as it is massaged into the skin. It has been used for centuries to relieve stress, enhance health, increase energy, and leave skin glowing.
Ayurveda is a holistic practice that has been around for thousands of years. In Ayurvedic medicine, the Kansa wand is thought to balance the three doshas of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Imbalance of the doshas (energies that make up every individual) is thought to cause a wide range of health issues. Massaging with the Kansa wand reduces stress and calms the mind to bring balance to your energies as well as drawing acidity away from the skin.
On this one day course you will explore Ayurvedic principles. You will learn how to carry out a Dosha profile, locate relevant marma points and their effects on the body, plus relevant meridians. You will receive plenty of hands-on practice to enable you to carry out a kansa wand massage to face, neck, shoulders and back.
