What Is a Kansa Wand?
A Kansa Wand is a handheld wooden tool with a rounded tip comprised of copper and tin. The metal itself is named ‘Kansa’ which is the Hindi/Sanskrit name for bronze and it’s benefits include the balancing of pH levels, the purification of toxins, and, of course, the improvement of the skin. The wand achieves its benefits by making contact with the marma points around the face, which are the energy centers that help determine our internal balance. Its portability and ease of use makes the Kansa wand a simple—yet powerful—skincare tool to incorporate into your daily ritual.
What Are The Benefits Of The Kansa Wand?
When applied to the skin, the Kansa wand has a myriad of benefits—both internal and external—which include:
- Enhancing lymphatic drainage: By massaging the skin’s marma points, the Kansa wand helps to drain out toxins from the lymph nodes. This causes the natural detoxifying processes of the skin to activare, resulting in a brighter, more luminous, and clearer complexion. Manual lymphatic drainage is known to help reduce swelling.
- Balancing the skin’s pH levels: Per Ayurveda, the Kansa metal helps restore a balance of pH levels in the skin. Imbalanced pH levels can contribute to conditions like acne, inflammation, and wrinkles. By bringing the skin’s pH levels back into balance, the Kansa wand is believed to promote good skin health.
- Alleviating stress and muscle tensions: Utilizing a Kansa wand properly, targeting the face's marmar points can help to alleviate stress, relax muscles and improve energy flow.
- Enhance the skin’s complexion and glow: Studies have shown that face massages can increase circulation and help to provide a more vibrant complexion. Including the Kansa wand in your daily ritual is a simple & effective way to enhance your glow.
