From a tradition that can be traced back 5,000 years, Kansa Vatki Foot Massage is an Ayurvedic massage of the feet and lower legs, incorporating marma points and the use of a unique metal bowl.
Based on ayurvedic and marma principles, this massage leaves the legs and feet feeling revived whilst the mind feels wonderfully relaxed, encouraging a sense of general well-being.
Ayurveda and marma massage
Ayurveda is the traditional medicine system of India and is accepted as the world’s oldest scientific system of medicine. Considered to be the mother of all forms of modern medicine, with “Ayur” meaning “Life” and “Veda” meaning “Knowledge”, Ayurveda means the Knowledge of Life.
Within the Ayurvedic tradition, well-being and the ability to heal are dependent on the free flow of energy or ‘prana’. Prana is the vital life-force that supplies the body and mind with nourishment, and the continued circulation of prana incorporates the chakras and a network of energy pathways. Foot massage is believed to balance the bodily humors, or doshas – vata, pitta and kapha.
Marma massage is an ancient Indian therapy originally derived from a branch of the martial arts. In total there are 107 marma points all over the body, with six points on each foot being worked during a Kansa Vatki Foot Massage, helping to increase energy and balance the flow of prana throughout the body.
