In Ayurvedic massage therapy, the Kansa Vatki Wand is used in conjunction with specific herbal oils that, in themselves, have profound properties and the ability to address a variety of ailments. Yasmin Sadikot, founder and formulator of Australia’s OmVeda Ayurvedic products and protocols, explains:
Metals are extensively used in many traditional Ayurvedic treatments.
Copper, zinc and tin are the major constituents of the authentic Kansa Vatki bowl that is used along with the wand.
Copper helps in reducing pain, inflammation, and arthritis and also improves the quality of haemoglobin.
Zinc helps in proper functioning of immune system, digestion, control of diabetes etc.
Tin is believed to be helpful in digestion, relieving headaches and insomnia.
In terms of combining the Kansa Vatki Wand in a body treatment, the back of the bowl is used with vigorous circular and a variety of stroking movements following application of the herbal oil.
The Kansa Vatki Bowl offers many health benefits including balancing the bio-energetic principles (Doshas) that regulate the body functions, improving joint mobility, promoting sound sleep, relieving eye strain, relieving stress and relaxing tired feet.
The bowl offers an extremely nurturing and soothing experience.
At OmVeda we recommend Arthroil for those clients suffering the effects of arthritis, Sahacharadi oil for sciatica and Maharayan Oil for deep muscular problems, for example.
We have over 18 herbal oils made to traditional guidelines that target conditions from eczema to arthritis and weak muscles.
Hand techniques include friction, knuckling and effleurage on the feet and the legs which helps to stimulate the blood and lymphatic flow. These techniques assist the vital flow of prana (energy) in the lower limbs.
As there are seven chakras in the body there are seven chakras on the soles of the feet.
The whole chakra system is connected to the soles of the feet. Therefore, the soles of the feet are directly connected to the human soul. So, working on the chakra points of the feet helps in re-balancing the chakras.
Marma points are vital energy centres and have considerable impact on our health and wellbeing. There are 107 primary marma points.
Marma therapy detoxifies, energises and rejuvenates. It can help in removing blockages and allowing free flow of prana (life force of energy).
The Kansa Wand feels ultra-luxurious on the skin and gives an overall rejuvenating therapy. It helps to boost circulation, maintain the pH of the skin and also detoxifies.
The subtle electrical conductivity of the metal improves the body’s natural balancing system and supports general wellbeing and strength.
When used on the face, this exceptional beauty tool offers a gentle facelift effect while smoothing out lines. Reducing facial tension, it enhances vitality and returns a glow and restful look to the complexion.
The traditional Ayurvedic treatment using Kansa Vatki (Kansa meaning metal and Vatki meaning bowl) is a very effective tool for the entire body, including hand and foot treatments.
The Kansa Wand is a Vatki with a wooden handle, generally Rosewood.
Not all Kansa Vatki Wands are created equal. While the majority of Kansa Wands on the market are an alloy, most of the wands sold are made from bronze a tin/copper alloy).
Tin is the cheaper metal and a high percentage of tin will make the Kansa Wand less expensive but – more important to you as a therapist – less effective when it is used in a facial or body treatment.
The OmVeda difference:
Our Kansa Wand is made from 73% Copper, 22% Zinc and 4% Tin.
We want you to give your clients the very best in treatment results and with our Wand you can be assured of its authenticity and healing properties.
It’s very easy to use and adds an exciting dimension when used in conjunction with your OmVeda facial services or as a stand-alone therapy. We recommend using the Wand in conjunction with our Saffron Oil for the face or with any of our herbalised oils, for the body.

The Kansa Vatki and Kansa Wand treatments with their subtle electro magnetic energy in combination with specific herbal oils will help to reduce stress and anxiety, pain, improve the skin condition, improve circulation and lymph flow giving a sense of wellness.
Cancer patients going through chemotherapy and radiotherapy suffer many side effects – from dry skin, muscular aches and pains, sensitivity, hair loss, anxiety and stress to name a few.
External treatments which are full of goodness and are not likely to cause a reaction on an already sensitive skin is worthwhile.
At OmVeda we have a herbal Spa treatment which encourages hair growth – a specific combination of herbs made into a paste with yoghurt applied on the scalp. The Brahmi Hair Oil is excellent to help relax the patient and Neelini Hair Oil not only conditions the scalp but also encourages hair growth.
