Kansa Wand Reviews – Too Good To Be True?

For centuries, ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and unique tools, such as Kansa Wand have been used together to enhance health and strength, increase energy, support general well-being & longevity and relieve stress.

You have probably seen one of the many Kansa Wand reviews popping up on the internet and are wondering if Kansa really is an Ayurvedic magic wand or is it just an other bunch of empty promises like so many other products.

My First Kansa Experience

I fist came across Kansa Wand on my travels to India as a 19 year old backpacker. I was suffering from insomnia due to the jet lag, the heat and humidity that hit me like the wall.

The first week of my trip of a lifetime was spent wandering around like a zombie from my inability to sleep in sweaty hostels and guest houses among so many other travelers.

I knew Ayurveda, so I turned for a local guide for help in Jaipur. He introduced me to his mother-in-law, who was an Ayurvedic healer, but spoke no English.

Old Indian Ayurvedic HealerShe invited me to a session in her house,  she indicated she wanted me to undress and lay down on a table and relax. She examined me and then she massaged my body with some strange object that I couldn’t identify.

But it worked wonders! I actually fell asleep on her massage table and she left me rest good 4h in the treatment room before gently waking me up for some ginger tea. I thanked her, she didn’t accept any payment for her help.

I slept like the baby the following nights, completely unaware of my surroundings. It was a miracle and I was eager to know more, I wanted to learn this technique!

Unfortunately my trip schedule did not allow me to stay, as we had booked a train, but I did ask her with the help of her son-in-law  to write down the name of the tool and technique she used. She did, in Hindi!

Beautiful City of Jaipur
Beautiful City of Jaipur

I gifted her a vibrant picture I had painted of her city the previous day and she cried, so did I. We parted forever, but my heart stayed with her.

Occasionally during my trip I went to Ayurvedic healer for treatments always showing the word, some smiled and gave me the treatment, other shrugged their shoulders and treated me with some other massage.

My Studies Into The Magic World of Ayurveda

Months later on in Kerala, South of Indian, I met some students from US, who had Indian roots and were traveling around the country with the train like I did. They invited me to stay with their family.

The experience was wonderful, hospitality overwhelming. Not only did I find out what that word

कंस मालिश दीवार

meant, but the daughter of the house was learning about this ancient technique from a master. With some difficulty I was allowed to attend 3 of the teaching sessions the following days, all in Tamil!

Ayurvedic Education
Beginning of my Ayurvedic education

During those days I did not only learn a lot about this wonderful tool and it’s benefits, but also deepened my knowledge in Ayurveda and the herbs. I was sad when it became time to leave home.

Once I got back home I picked up studies in Ayurveda medicine! I started to study Sanskrit as I wanted to understand the ancient secrets. This was not an easy task and 25 years later I am still learning!

Since then I have studied everything I could gotten training in this technique, finally getting my qualifications for it 15 years later in Sri Lanka.

What Is Kansa Wand Exactly And How Does It Work?

The power of this tool is said to come from the ancient, golden metal called Kansa, which is essential part of the tool. In English it’s called Bell metal and is form of Bronze. In India it’s also traditionally used for cooking gear.

Kansa wand is a healing tool, that works by balancing the 3 Ayurvedic doshas of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. According to the Ayurvedic medicine, all the health problems are in fact caused by the dosha inbalances.

Dosha are each a different mixture of the 4 elements
Dosha are each a different mixture of the 4 elements

Additionally the Kansa Wand therapy combines ancient Tibetan knowledge about the bodies marma points and how you can stimulate them with the correct tool, which also consist of Kansa metal.

I am planning on writing an article about marmas, so everyone can learn about their importance in your health very soon, so I hope you return to read it! You can read my article about doshas here:

What Is a Dosha – How It Influences Our Lives

Kansa wands come in different sizes and traditionally are used on the face, the body and the feet together with some Ayurvedic massage oils.

In the Western society Kansa is gaining popularity as an amazing beauty treatment, with it’s immediate skin tightening and vitalizing effects.

However the Kansa tools healing benefits are even more impressive and include:

  • Calms down the whole nervous system
  • Eases muscle tension
  • Erases stress and tiredness in any muscle group promoting vitality
  • Helps to relax the whole body and eases chronic pains
  • Calms the mind giving you a clear head
  • Helps with insomia and difficulties of falling asleep
  • Improves circulation related problems
  • Removed built up toxins from the body

The list goes on and on and this therapy is used from India to Tibet and Sri Lanka everything possible from common colds, chronic pains, mentail disorders and dementia.

Where Can I Learn More and Buy a Set?

I have original Kansa Wands hand crafted in Sri Lanka where I studied the technique, however it is not possible for everyone to make the same Ayurveda pilgrimage I did!

Therefore I have looked for a long time for a proper program to teach the methods and offer the correct traditional tools for this technique. I finally found them! I can whole heartedly recommend the following:

Final Words

I hope you have enjoyed my personal Kansa experience, it is closely related to the story why I got so deeply involved with Ayurveda in the first place.

As a cancer patient it is extremely difficult for me to relax due to intense pains I am often experiencing. I hate taking any medication for my pains, but instead use as many natural methods as possible!

Besides Ayurveda, which with it’s methods and herbs offers a large variety of pain reliefs, I also use meditation for pain management, you can read about my experiences here:

Kansa wands offer an really  amazing deep relax experience, which is hard to beat. Relaxing is extremely important as too much stress leads to a lot of health problems. Read about how meditation helps with stress in my article here:
