Kansa is an Indian word for a blend of metals we now call bronze. A kansa wand is a tool that dates back over 5000 years ago and is a blend of copper and tin. It is a traditional healing tool for Ayurvedic treatments for the face and body. The metal tool shines like gold because of its extreme purity and is still made in India by artisans that have practiced this craft for over five generations. The word wand is used for this tool because of its wonderful, magical changes to the body and mind.
The benefits of this massage technique can help balance the subtle energies in the body, especially Pitta dosha when used on the feet. It also has been known to help ground, soothes eye areas, pull out toxins from tissues, reduce acidity, invokes a sense of relaxation. Traditionally, ghee was rubbed on the body allowing the Kansa Wand to glide over. Jojoba and coconut oil are also great oils to use for this method.
