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.
