Ayurvedic Kansa Vatki foot massage is a wonderfully relaxing treatment which helps to balance body, mind and spirit The particularity of the treatment is the use of a small 3-metal Kansa Vatki bowl to rub onto and stimulate the feet. The 3 metals used are copper, zinc and tin. Copper is thought to help in reducing pain and inflammation, zinc is thought to help in proper functioning of the immune system and digestion while tin is believed to be helpful in digestion, relieving headaches and insomnia.
This unique treatment, steeped in centuries of Indian tradition, is deeply revitalising for tired feet and legs, and, as the feet contain key energy and nerve endings relating to internal organs, a Kansa Vakti treatment can also help to re-balance the the body.
Most of the people do not have the luxury to immerse themselves in the profound ayurvedic traditions, but there are ways to incorporate basic ayurvedic skills into everyday practices. One such technique is Kansa Vatki Foot Massage. Foot massage is called “Padabhyanga”,and it has a very special place within the Ayurvedic tradition. It is commonly practiced as a daily ritual, especially before retiring at night.
