Kansa Vatki – Ayurvedic Foot Massage for wāhine

Kansa Vatki – Ayurvedic Foot Massage

Ayurveda is a system of holistic health that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. From the Sanskrit for “knowledge of life,” this ancient tradition of healing is the sister science to yoga, and is a holistic health model that takes into account all aspects of a person.  The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self all benefit from ayurveda.

Kansa is a healing metal used in Ayurveda consisting of copper, zinc and tin.  Copper may help in reducing pain and inflammation, and tin is believed to be helpful in digestion, relieving headaches and insomnia.

This relaxing treatment involves massaging the feet and lower legs with a kansa bowl, with particular emphasis on marma points, prescribed movements with the bowl, and simple massage techniques.

We now know that stress and tension are known to be the biggest cause of dis-ease in the body.  A body/mind under stress has less resilience and resistance.  When you relieve tension in the body, healing can begin.

This soothing session helps to balance the three doshas of vata, pitta, and kapha, and helps draw out excess heat, leaving the entire body cool, refreshed and relaxed.

Kansa Vatki can help to:

  • Relieve stress, tension and anxiety

  • Relaxes and revitalises tired feet and legs

  • Improve blood and lymphatic circulation

  • Balance the whole system – bring the body to homeostasis

  • Revitalise energy

  • Improve joint mobility

  • Improve sleep

  • Increase Prana (life force energy)

  • Preventative health care – make it part of your health care routine.
