Kansa - the Sankrit term for bronze - is derived primarily from copper, a metal very celebrated in Ayurveda for detox properties. Metals are traditionally used in Ayurveda as healers to negate toxicity within organs. Copper is revered in Ayurvedic medicine for helping restore better lymphatic function and drainage (a better working lymphatic system can help the body naturally detox, preventing many ailments and disease).
Within skincare and beauty rituals in particular - the UMA Kansa Wand can help enhance the stimulation of marma points* in the face, leading to greater stress release and lymphatic detox - which in turn will result in a more rested complexion, a lifted, firmer skin appearance, and relieving the appearance of inflammation.
Use your UMA kansa wand to sculpt your face and enhance the application of pressure to alleviate the tension in muscles, improving energy flow within marma points. To support lymphatic drainage (which involves much lighter pressure than massage) you will glide the tool with light pressure over your skin rather than getting into muscle.
Copper is a very conductive metal, and is a great "cofactor" in the presence of an enzymatic antioxidant to neutralize free-radical damage to the skin. Simply put, the UMA Kansa Wand will further enhance the function of an antioxidant serum you may be applying to your skin, even outside of its amazing marma therapy benefits!
*A "marma" point is effectively an energy center in the body. Marma point therapy is believed to bring the body and skin into balance through stimulation of a subset of 107 of these marma points based on results you're trying to achieve - from relieving the appearance of puffiness, to an all natural face lift.

2. Side of the neck
Place the wand on the left side of the neck below the ears. Slowly move the tool down and back. Repeat on the right side

Set tool aside.
4. (Cup Your Hands) under the arms
Prepare the lymph nodes under the arms to help them accept lymph fluid from other areas of the body. Cup the palm under the armpit. Gently pump the palm upward and toward the body. Repeat on the other arm.
