Why get a Kansa wand massage? If you want a deep facial massage, without putting stress or pressure on your fingers and hands, this ayurvedic face wand works well.
In fact, you can use the face or body wand to de-stress stiff neck and shoulder muscles too.
We'll explain the benefits, side effects, how to use it and how it works.
The Kansa Wand is a simple wooden handle with a special bronze dome that - according to Ayurveda medicine - has beneficial effects on the skin. It is used as a therapeutic massage tool for the face and body.
Ayurveda is a natural holistic medicine that originated over 3,000 years ago in India. Its principles believe that disease or malfunction is due to an imbalance within the body.
In India, bronze is considered a healing metal. 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 metals on the head of the Kansa wand provides additional skin health benefits.

A Kansa face massage offers many anti-aging benefits for healthy looking skin.
But instead of using your fingers and hands, which can tire quickly, you can give yourself a deeper massage easily with the wand.
This helps relax tight muscles, which softens your facial appearance, firms the skin... all contributing to a more relaxed, smooth, up-lifted appearance.
And, the face oils help to smooth and hydrated dry, parched skin.
I know how effective facial exercises and massages are for a firmer, smoother face and neck. I've been doing them for years - you can see my before and after results here...
Here is Why the Face Wand Works
Giving yourself a good anti-aging face massage can be tiring on your hands, especially if you have issues like arthritis.
But what I like about the Kansa wand is the smooth wood handle and the rounded bronze dome makes it easy to glide across your face and get a good thorough 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.
How Does This Benefit Your Face
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 (and forming) lines and folds. This is one reason why Botox is so popular, it keeps the face looking more relaxed.
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.
Here's a great video showing a sample of a face wand massage technique along with ayurvedic tips for glowing skin. However, feel free to use it anyway that works and feels best for you.
Once you learn a few massage techniques by watching their instruction video, you can give yourself an anti-aging face massage anytime. I usually do it while watching TV.
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...
There is a common after effect called the "Kansa wand graying effect". This is when your skin is left with a slight greyish tint after a massage therapy.
This is common, and according to the makers of the wand, this is caused by chemical reaction between the acid level in your skin and the copper metal on the Kansa dome. You simply wipe the tint off with a wet cloth.
Many people say the more often they use the wand, the less often this tint shows up.
Note: If you have 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.
