 What is Ayurvedic Kansa Vatki Foot Massage?

Ayurvedic Kansa Vatki Foot Massage is a wonderfully relaxing holistic treatment, which can help to balance the body, mind and spirit. Just under an hour in duration, the treatment begins by cleansing the feet and legs, followed by some relaxing foot and leg moves. Then, slowly and methodically the entire feet and lower legs (toes, feet, ankles, calves, knees) are encouraged to relax through the application of massage techniques carried out with the aid of coconut oil, ghee (clarified butter) or other oils.

The treatment continues with special moves performed with a small 3-metal bowl. The metals used are copper, zinc and tin and this sacred metal alloy (Kansa) is known in Ayurveda, India’s traditional holistic healing system, as the ‘healing metal’ – it is thought to be even more effective than gold or silver! It is thought that copper may help in reducing pain and inflammation, zinc in aiding the digestive and immune systems while tin is believed to aid digestion as well as headaches and insomnia.

Marma massage (a traditional Indian therapy, derived from a branch of the martial arts) is then applied to specific acupressure points on the lower legs and feet. Working these points may help to relieve certain conditions around the body and free the energy flow.

This treatment can be taken alone, or is ideal if combined with another treatment such as reflexology, facial rejuvenation or massage.

 What are the pre-requisites to training, how long does it take and what qualification will I receive?

This one day CPD course is for qualified therapists (massage, reflexology, beauty therapy etc). You will receive a CMA approved certificate from the London Centre of Indian Champissage International. The course covers theory and practice and you will give and receive the treatment twice on the day. Wear comfortable clothing for treatment as your feet and legs will be massaged up to the knees. Bring 2 large towels for cover.
