This is a wonderfully relaxing holistic treatment, which can help to balance the body, mind and spirit. Just under an hour in duration, the treatment begins by cleansing the feet and legs, followed by some relaxing foot and leg moves. Then, slowly and methodically, the entire feet and lower legs (toes, feet, ankles, calves and knees) are encouraged to relax through the application of massage techniques, carried out with the aid of coconut oil, ghee (clarified butter) or other oils.
The treatment continues with special moves performed with a small 3-metal bowl. The metals used are copper, zinc and tin and this sacred metal alloy (Kansa) is known in Ayurveda, India’s traditional holistic healing system, as the ‘healing metal’ – it is thought to be even more effective than gold or silver! It is thought that copper may help in reducing pain and inflammation, zinc in aiding the digestive and immune systems, whilst tin is believed to aid digestion as well as headaches and insomnia.
