According to the tenets of Ayurveda, the lymphatic system is called Rasa Dhatu – Rasa meaning fluid and Dhatu meaning element. This lymphatic system is the network of tissues and organs whose main function is to carry lymph fluid throughout the body. This lymph fluid is primarily made up of white blood cells and lymphocytes, which attack any disease causing microbes in the blood and protect the immune system. The Gua Sha tool aids the flow of lymph in the body, and has several cosmetic benefits as well, while Kansa is known as a healing metal in Ayurveda.
Crafted in pure, lab certified Kansa, our Kansa Gua Sha tool combines the healing knowledge of two ancient Eastern healing techniques – Kansa from Ayurveda and Gua Sha therapy of TCM. A Kansa Gua Sha tool detoxifies your skin by removing excess acidity (Pitta) from the skin, and also encourages lymphatic drainage and flow. Our Gua Sha tool is completely free from lead and other heavy metals.
*Your skin might acquire a greyish hue while using this product. This is due to the Kansa metal drawing out excessive acids from the skin and can be easily washed off with a mild cleanser and water . The act of Gua Sha creates a short-term red flush, called ‘petechiae’, on the skin. This redness jump-starts the skin’s repair cycles, increasing collagen production and smoothing wrinkles.
