ACNE IN AYURVEDA: Its cause and treatment
Acne affects more than 85% of teenagers in their growing years, and even young adults. Acne can affect anyone regardless of age, color of hair, and sex. In Ayurveda, acne is referred to as 'Yauvan Pidika,' and is believed to be a manifestation of an aggravated Pitta dosha.
If you have an adult acne, your pitta and vata elements are definitely imbalanced. Acne appears because the actual structures that are supposed to clear and eliminate dead cells and produce new tissues on your face get clogged. Your body overproduces oil leading to extra production of cells.
WHAT IS THE KANSA WAND?
It is a wellness massage tool derived from the holistic science of Ayurveda. Kansa Organics’s Kansa wand’s handle is made out of organic teak wood with patent ergonomic design. Its dome is pure Kansa metal, which is a mix of Copper and Tin.
The Kansa wand is used in Ayurvedic treatments specially for holistic massage to bring harmony to the three doshas (Kapha, Vata, and Pitta), and balance our skin pH, as well as combat emotional distress and mental problems such as anxiety and insomnia which cause imbalances to our doshas and eventually result to a disease if left neglected.
CAN KANSA WAND HELP GET RID OF YOUR ACNE?
Here’s the good news! The answer is a resounding “YES”!
Traditionally, facial massage aids lymphatic flow in the face and purifies the skin by flushing the “ama” or toxins through lymphatic drainage.
However, on top of massage’s benefits, Kansa wand’s metal properties, such as alkaline, and Copper’s antimicrobial potent, using it to massage your skin also add in more help in balancing your skin's pH, especially individuals with skin that is high in acid content.
“NO FLOW, NO GLOW”
“No flow, no glow” is holistic estheticians’ and Ayurvedic skin experts’ mantra through the lens of Ayurveda in their holistic approach to skicare and wellness treatment.
Ayurveda teaches to work our way from the inside out because that’s the essence of holistic beauty - a person’s beauty and glow is achieved through wellness in all aspects: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
The Kansa wand is also a great tool to address blockages in our body by aiding lymphatic drainage, as Ayurveda teaches that the root of all health issues start from a stagnant lymph flow. This is why holistic massage has been deeply rooted in Ayurveda since it came to practice in ancient India, for over five thousand years.
Targeting Marma Points
We have a total of 107 Marma points around our body. The face alone holds 10 Marma points side to side. These points are a junction on the body where two or more types of tissue connect, such as muscles, veins, ligaments, bones or joints.
But what happens when these points are blocked? According to Ayurveda, our vital flow of energies throughout our body get stagnant resulting in a sluggish flow of lymph drain in modern science, causing imbalances.
The Kansa wand is a great tool to perform Marma Therapy. Consult with an Ayurvedic skincare expert if you think you’re suffering from dosha imbalance to book a Marma Therapy.
Although the Kansa wand facial massage can also be self-done and brings in a considerable amount of improvement with its holistic benefits.
