What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is one of the oldest whole body healing systems. Developed more than 3,000 years ago in India and Tibet, it is a study of longevity allowing people to discover their path towards health, strength, mental ability, beauty and joy.
Ayurveda is essentially the science of life (Ayur = life and Veda = science or knowledge). It helps people stay vibrant and healthy so they can achieve their full potential.
Organic essential oils allow the Kansa wand to glide over the skin of the face, neck and shoulders for a relaxing sensation.
Forehead: Starting in the middle of the forehead move the wand in clockwise spirals, followed by zig-zag up and down movements before finishing with gentle side to side strokes. The temple hollows respond best to gentle circular motions.
Eyes: Apply gentle pressure to the eye socket bone area in an anti-clockwise then clockwise motion.
Cheekbones: Use circular motion in an anti-clockwise direction followed by a clockwise direction.
Cheeks: Circular massage over cheeks and jaw joints.
Jawline: Move from the middle of the chin toward the ear with upward and outward friction strokes. Use downward strokes that only just touch the skin.
Chin: Move the wand in small clockwise circles around the chin area.
Mouth: Apply anti-clockwise then clockwise circles over the entire mouth area.
Different sized wands can be used for massaging the body and feet.
