Kansa Vatki Foot Massage
Ayurvedic Kansa Vatki foot massage is a wonderfully relaxing holistic treatment, which helps to balance body, mind and spirit and free the flow of energy throughout the body.
As in reflexology, which targets ‘reflex’ areas corresponding to bodily organs and systems, KV Foot Massage gives attention to massaging the marma points (Ayurvedic equivalent of reflex points) of the feet & legs. The seven Chakras (energy centres), which can be accessed on the soles of the feet, are also worked on during a KV treatment.
The treatment begins with cleansing the feet and legs before thoroughly massaging the feet and legs with coconut oil, ghee or other oils. The massage continues using a small bowl made from copper, zinc and tin, which combined are known in Ayurveda as the ‘healing metal’ - thought to be even more effective than gold or silver.
