Ayurvedic foot massage bowl Kansu bowls belong to ayurvedic medicine. Ayurveda is the science (Veda) of life (Ayur), a therapeutics that aim to prolong the length of life. These bowls are made of an alloy from 7 metals (copper, zinc and an alloy from five other metals), just like the singing bowls from Bengal available on this website. All day long our feet bear the weight of our body. We shut them in shoes and usually don't pay much attention to them. Yet they can help to restaure balance in the whole body. The Indian know it, that's why they have used Kansu bowls for centuries. The advocates of ayurvedic medicine consider that copper absorb the excess heat in the body. At the same time, zinc has a benefic effect on muscle tissues and bronze works as a catalyst of copper and zinc. What's sure is that a Kansu bowl massage fills you with soft and soothing sensations. To such an extent that many therapists use it to cure anxiety, stress or insomnia. We recommend to follow the Indian tradition and to use Kansu bowls with clarified butter (ghee in Hindi). The movement is simple: you have to press vigorously on the surface of the skin and to stimulate every zone of the sole. Each foot should be manipulated in this way for about 10 minutes.
