Why get a Kansa wand massage?
If you want a deep, healing facial massage at-home, without putting stress or pressure on your fingers, this authentic metal bronze Ayurvedic face massager is easier to use than the gua sha and more effective than the jade roller.
We'll review the benefits and side effects.
I knew I was on to something special when that smooth, cooling bronze dome (sitting on top of a 100% teak wooded handle) glided across my face.
After I finished the massage, my skin had a rosy glow, like I just had a facial. And my face looked more relaxed and less lined. Especially around my eyes.
According to Ayurveda medicine, this bell metal, deep tissue massage tool offers many healing and anti-aging effects on facial skin.
This ancient Ayurvedic face wand allows you to take advantage of a 5000-year-old facial technique that offers a deep tissue massage.
It helps stimulate blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which can aid in reducing puffiness and under-eye bags. It also helps to tone and tighten the skin by promoting collagen production.
The gentle friction of the wand can help improve elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
Additionally, it's believed that the wand's metal composition (copper and aluminum) is believed to help balance the skin's pH levels and promote a healthy glow.
Ayurveda is a natural holistic medicine that originated over 5,000 years ago in India. Its principles believe that disease or malfunction are because of 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 warms up as it glides so smoothly across the face.
Studies show that the bronze and copper metals (called bell metal) on the top of this tool provide skin health and detoxifying benefits.

According to the company, this facial massage tool offers many anti-aging benefits for healthy looking skin, including:
A good deep facial massage helps relax tight muscles, which softens your facial appearance, firms the skin… all contributing to a more relaxed, smooth, up-lifted appearance.
Tight, pinched facial muscles cause wrinkles, exaggerates exisiting fine lines and contributes facial sagging.
And, the face oils help smooth and hydrated 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. My before and after picture show just how effective facial massages can be for anti-aging purposes.
How does this Indian face massage tool wand differ from the gua sha or facial rollers?
Well, they all can help encourage lymphatic drainage from the face and neck, but they're not equal in terms of results.
Of the three, I find the facial massage roller to be the least effective.
During and right after your facial massage, you may see a graying film on the skin.
According to the company, this is a sign that it's working to help balance your skin's pH level and detoxify your skin.
Simply rinse your face with a washcloth to remove the film after each massage session. Over time, with regular use, you'll see less film.
Immediately, after a massage, most people report less puffiness around the eyes and jowls/jaw bone, smoother skin with a warm rosy glow.
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 using this Ayurvedic massage tool.
This type of massaging tool 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.
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 it is the shape of the smooth wood handle, and the round bronze dome makes it easy to glide across the face and get a good 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.
Here's a great video showing how to use this copper wand for face and neck massage, along with Ayurvedic tips for glowing skin.
Just dab some organic face oil all over your face and neck. Any good quality face oil will do like this one. Or this Black Gram Kansa Organics Oil that helps lighten skin tone and discoloration.
There is a common aftereffect called the "graying effect". This is when your skin is left with a slight grayish tint after a massage therapy.
This is common, and according to the company, this is caused by a chemical reaction between the acid level in your skin and the copper metal dome. You simply wipe the tint off with a wet cloth.
Many people say the more often they use it, the less often this tint shows up.
Note: If you have sensitive skin or issues with dermatitis or acne, try the wand on a small area first to gauge how your skin will react.
