In the words of Soumya Shah, “Traditionally, Kansa is said to pull Pitta or excess fieriness that has accumulated in our tissues out of the body through our skin. Some of this is because of the physical process of friction (rubbing). The result is the pulling and drawing of heat, acidity, inflammation and toxins out of the body. Because of the nature of piezoelectricity and how it courses through the body, Kansa Wati was employed on the feet to have a drawing effect of heat and strain away from the eyes. We have personally seen eyes become less bloodshot and the high skin tones normalize just by rubbing the feet with the Kansa foot wand.
Modern medicine is also learning the benefits of implements primarily made of copper. We know that copper rich surfaces are unfriendly to harmful microbes so, like gold, this precious alloy is very clean and cleansing for the skin. So much so that copper, rather than stainless steel, is being used for surfaces in hospitals.
We have also learned that microparticles of copper support healthy collagen – the material that supports good tone and vibrancy of the skin. This explains the use of copper vessels to drink from. It also explains the many benefits reported from colloidal water made from colloidal copper, silver, and gold.
Tools like this have been used in India for centuries to enhance health and strength, increase energy and support general well-being and longevity. Much of the work done with our Original Kansa Face & Body Tools involves simple repetitive long strokes and circles that, according to Ayurvedic theory, may evoke a cleansing and rebalancing effect.
The smooth surface quickly warms and feels like a warm hand, making it the perfect, comfortable extension of your own healing energy.
Used for sacred Tibetan bells and gongs, Kansa metal is highly resonant. Think of it as tuning up the face or body in a way similar to listening to the Tibetan gong sounds that lift your spirit.
To use this metal in the best possible manner and to make the most of its healing abilities, Soumya Shah introduced it to the World Spa and Beauty Industry in the form of handy tools that were much easier to use. 4 Kansa Wands with elegant handcrafted wooden handles were tailored to address specific needs and handcrafted by artisans from the corners of India.
