Your face is always on display to the world. Our facial expressions often create the first impression of us as a person.

In Ayurveda, we use the face to diagnose. Each part of the face represents a different organ. Areas of dryness, redness or puffiness point to an imbalance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha respectively. By massaging the face, we help bring balance to the body.

Introducing the Kansa Wand

The word 'Kansa' (pronounced cun-za) comes from the Sanskrit word 'Kansya', which means 'bronze'. It refers to a metal alloy that was developed in India over 3000 years ago, consisting of about 80% copper with traces of tin and zinc.

Kansa is considered in Ayurveda as a healing metal with therapeutic benefits, such as increasing collagen and reducing inflammation.

The last few centuries saw Kansa being used for developing massage tools for healing.

Benefits of the Ayurvedic Kansa Wand Face Massage

The Kansa Wand is able to work deeply into the muscles and fascia of the face. Particular attention is paid to problem areas such as the eyes, brow line, jawline and mouth to lift, firm and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin elasticity and microcirculation is improved for younger looking skin and a brighter, clearer complexion.

During a Kansa Wand Face Massage the Marma (energy) points of the head and face is massaged, conferring therapeutic benefit to the entire body, including:

  • reduced tension & anxiety
  • improved concentration
  • drainage of the sinuses
  • relief of eye strain, brightening of eyes and reduction of dark circles & puffiness
  • improved sleep

This beautifully restorative treatment will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and looking and feeling years younger.
