Ayurvedic Kansa Wand Facelift Massage

This unique facial treatment integrates massage of the facial marmas (Ayurvedic acupressure points) with the use of a simple massage tool called a Kansa Wand and nourishing oils. ‘Kansa’ means ‘bronze’ and this metal alloy combining copper and tin with trace elements such as zinc, is known in India as the ‘healing metal’. The wand can move deep into and underneath the contours of the face and around areas like the brow line, jawline and neck where tension is held.

Kansa Wand Facelift Massage was developed to address current day concerns to look youthful and healthy without invasive interventions. Just as regular visits to the gym can keep you looking fit and toned, regular Kansa Wand Facelift  Massage can lift and tone facial muscles, soften features and keep you looking radiant and healthy with renewed blood and oxygen supply to the face. Kneading facial skin and muscles brings nutrients to the treated area, helping the collagen and elastin fibres retain their elasticity, while stimulating facial marmas can help release energy blockages.

Kansa has been used in Ayurvedic treatments for thousands of years but in recent years it has been used to create massage tools for use on the face and body.  The London Centre of Indian Champissage, an Ayurvedic training centre, developed this particular Kansa Wand treatment. Here is a short video showing the Kansa wand in action – however on this course you will learn a full one-hour Kansa wand facelift treatment incorporating massage of all the facial mamas with your hands as well as a lovely routine with the Kansa wand.

As well as being extremely relaxing, the treatment can help minimise fine lines and wrinkles, tighten facial contours, reduce dark circle and puffiness under the eyes, improve blood and lymph circulation and increase oxygen supply to skin and muscle cells. Other benefits reported by clients include improved sense of smell, clearer sinuses, relief from headaches and jaw tension and improved sleep. Kansa Wand Facelift Massage can be used on its own, integrated into a full body massage routine or combined with any other treatment. The wand is easy to use on yourself and can form a part of a daily self-care routine with great results.
