Why would you use the Kansa wand? Well, if you're want a deep facial massage, without the extra stress or pressure your fingers and hands, this ayurveda massage wand can help.
In fact, you can use this healing wand to destress tight or stiff neck and shoulder muscles too.
The Kansa wand is a therapeutic massage tool used in Ayurvedic healing.
Ayurveda is a natural holistic medicine that originated over 3,000 years ago in India. It's principles believe that disease or malfunction is due to an imbalance within the body.
The Kansa Wand is a simple wooden handle with a special bronze dome that - according to Ayurveda medicine - has beneficial effects on the skin.
In India, bronze is considered a healing metal. While I don't know much about healing metals, I do know that this wand feels wonderful as it's massaged on the skin.
Once the bronze dome makes contact with the skin which has been coated with a good quality face oil - it begins to warm up as it glides so smoothly across the face.
Studies show that the bronze and copper metal on the head of the Kansa wand provides additional skin health benefits.

Easy on the Hands
Massaging your face, neck or shoulders can be tiring on your hands, especially if you have issues with arthritis.
But what I like about the Kansa wand is the smooth wood handle and the rounded bronze dome that makes it easy to glide across your face and get a deep muscle massage.
This is especially important when you're trying to reduce stress or tension around your forehead, in between the eyebrows (where we hold a lot of tension) and around the eyes and temples.
When your face holds a lot of tension and stress it causes the muscles to tighten and contract, thus pulling the face downward, and exaggerating lines and folds.
Most people - including myself - found that the face looks more relaxed and lifted after a kansa massage session.
This type of massaging wand has been used in India for centuries to promote healthy skin and reduce stress because it stimulates pressure receptors located under the skin, reducing stress hormones.
I know how effective facial exercises are for firmer, smoother face and neck. I've been doing them (using my fingers and hands) for years - you can see my results here...
But a facial massage is also an effective anti-aging treatment because it helps relax tight muscles which softens facial appearance, firms the skin, and temporarily reduces the depth of wrinkles.
When done on a regular basis it improves circulation and relieves facial tension contributing to a more relaxed, smooth, up-lifted appearance.
And, the face oils help to smooth and hydrated dry, parched skin.
Here's a great video showing an sample of how to use the Kansa wand massage technique. However, feel free to use it anyway that works and feels best for you.
Just lightly apply some organic face oil all over your face and neck. Any good quality face oil will do.
Repeat on the other side of the face. Don't forget to massage the crepey skin on your chest too...
Side Effects: For some people with sensitive skin or issues with dermatitis or acne, try the Kansa wand massage on a small area first to gauge how your skin will react. Also, if you have skin issues be sure to inform your doctor or dermatologist about your plan to use of the Kansa wand.
