1Hr - £45
The word Ayurveda means "Knowledge of Life". Ayurveda was handed down to mankind from the sages of ancient India who were said to have been imbued with the knowledge of health and healing through their meditation.
Ayurvedic Kansa Wand Face massage is a treatment using a Kansa wand and Ayurvedic oils to massage the face and stimulate the marma points. Stress and modern lifestyles can leave the muscles of the face, neck and shoulders tight, restricting blood, oxygen and nutrient supply to these areas. As a result the collagen and elastin fibres in the connective tissue can lock together, giving one a drawn and sometimes harsh appearance.
Kansa means 'bronze' and it is a combination of copper and tin. Copper being a trace mineral is vital for the health and body. Using the wand can create friction and warmth and help the copper absorb the molecular oxygen and channel it through the skin pores. It aids in absorption of iron in the body to help produce red blood cells. It helps with the formation of collagen, elastin, antioxidants, enzymes and melanin pigment.
According to the key Ayurvedic scripture there are 107 marmas in the body. These are junctions where body tissues meet and they are regarded as seats of vital energy or prana. Stimulation of marmas releases toxins and balances the body's doshas.
