How to Lymph Drain using the Kansa Wand
Lymphatic drainage helps the flow of lymph which is a fluid that transports oxygen, white blood cells, and nutrients to the tissues throughout the body. Lymphatic drainage techniques use gentle movements to reduce inflammation, pain, and stiffness in the body.
Unlike our blood circulation with the heart to pump the blood to continuously move the flow & maintain the process, the lymphatic system can be sluggish as it can only be stimulated and supported with proper healthcare, and a balanced & mindful lifestyle.
Lack of sleep, stress & dehydration, emotional trauma, infections & lack of movement (lethargy) can stagnate the lymph flow & can play detrimental to our overall health, as both circulatory and lymphatic systems are home to many components of the host immune defenses.
Even poor diet and exposure to environmental toxins can overload our lymphatic system.
No wonder why Ayurveda teaches us the significance of establishing a regular lymph drain massage as part of our daily holistic self-care ritual
LEARN HOW TO LYMPH DRAIN USING THE KANSA WAND
Start by taking your Kansa wand and placing it on the bottom part of the neck right below your earlobes. Gently press the top of the Kansa wand into this area several times like a pumping motion. Next, with your arm at your side, place the Kansa wand into the crease of the armpit and make circular movements clockwise. Once you have completed step 2, place your Kansa wand under your chin, lining it up underneath your eye, and gently move the Kansa wand down into your chest and then off to the side. Repeat with the other side.
Now move the Kansa wand to the point between your eyebrows or your third eye. Move the Kansa wand straight up toward your forehead and repeat this movement several times. Next, place the Kansa wand back on the point between the eyebrows, and move the Kansa wand along the eyebrow line and then down. Repeat several times on the left and then move to the right.
We begin step 5 by placing the Kansa wand on the top part of the cheekbone near the nose. Slowly move the Kansa wand toward the ear gently pressing to reduce puffiness. Repeat on the other side. By placing the Kansa wand near the nostril, you begin step 6. Move the Kansa wand down and out towards the ear, and then repeat on the other side.
