Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Kansa Vakti is known as "three-metal bowl" Ayurvedic foot massage and is valued as both a medicinal and nourishing treatment. It uses hand and metal bowl application of ghee (clarified butter) to the indian marma points and includes a foot, ankle and lower leg massage. The bowl is comprised of copper, zinc and tin; each having a specific therapeutic action. Benefits of Kansa Vakti include improved blood and lymph circulation, enhanced joint mobility in lower limbs, organ detoxification and reduction of pitta dosha. This excellent video demonstrates a relaxing Kansa Vakti massage. Try one today!
