Kansa Vatki Foot Massage



Kansa Vatki Foot Massage has been introduced to the UK by Narendra Mehta, who

has been practicing 'Body Work' for over 25 years and leading Indian Champissage training for over 15 years.

Kansa Vatki Foot Massage is a deeply relaxing treatment that works holistically by rebalancing body, mind and spirit.

Ayurvedic Foot Massage using the Kansa Vatki has been in existence in India for centuries and works on the feet and lower limbs. The feet being the seat of the meridians and many nerve endings, neural receptors and marma points.

The treatment is conducted using a small metal bowl containing copper and zinc, which is lubricated with purified butter (Ghee) or oil, and rubbed against the soles of the feet and lower limbs to create the most relaxing treatment imaginable.

The copper and zinc in the Kansa Vatki bowl are said to be a more powerful combination than even gold and silver in this application.

Copper in Ayurvedic is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties in relieving joint pain and Zinc is known for its antiseptic properties in treating and preventing skin disorders.

As in reflexology, which targets 'reflex' points, corresponding with bodily organs and systems, Kansa Vatki Foot Massage gives attention to massaging 'Marma Points', an important part of Ayurvedic Medicine.

Marma points are found where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. There are 107 Marma points, which form vital energy channels running throughout the body. Several of these Marma Points are targeted on the legs & feet (the true seat of 'prana' - the body's vital energy), stimulating the body's own innate ability to rebalance and harmonise the 'doshas'.

The seven Chakras (energy centres) cited on the feet (the foundation of consciousness) are also massaged during the treatment to balance the soul.

Regular treatments using Kansa Vatki have been found beneficial to those suffering gastric ailments, diabetes and skin disorders.
