Kansa Massage

A wooden, hand-carved handle makes using moderate pressure, delicate stroking or rapid friction easy on the face, shoulders, feet and neck areas.  The kansa wand provides gentle friction to facial muscles which helps pull acidity from the tissues. If acids are present in the skin, oils will often get grey or black. Tools like this have been used for centuries in India to enhance health and strength, and to increase energy, and reduce stress.
