Kansa Wand Ayurvedic Rejuvenation Facial
The Kansa Wand is made of very high quality, pure copper, tin and zinc. This ancient blend of metals is known in Ayurveda as “healing metal”. This tool has been used for centuries to revitalize tired faces and provide a gentle lift and light back to the face. It also has the added benefit of relieving stressed shoulders and aching necks. This session includes a mild orange blossom water exfoliation to remove dirt, marma massage around the head/face/neck, a facial massage with the kansa wand using jojoba oil infused with aromatherapy and elemental essences created specifically to balance your particular dosha, and a powder cleanse with rose water. All ayurvedic bodywork includes a short dosha evaluation.

ABOUT FLORA CORONA™ PRODUCTS
Flora Corona™ has translated emotions into colors. Blue flowers, gems and colors are cool, like winter, and can be transformed from this stage into spring-like warmth using Red, Orange, and Yellow elixirs. Like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, the full spectrum Flora bottles transform your emotions through natural stages.
The transparent photo bottles help the body to know what it needs to feel better . This visual method was used for seven years in private practice with children, teens and adults – showing them photos of flowers and gems – & finding that the body-mind can diagnose itself through visual images.
Currently, sessions are for a child and their guardian which includes a short grounding guided meditation, discussion on colors and any thing else the child may want to discuss. The child will be the one to choose the combinations to take home, and the child and their guardian will take home identical remedy bottles to use at home until your next session. Combinations could include colored light elixirs, flower essences, gem essences and more. Each session is individualized for the child and their guardian. 1-2 sessions a month is recommended.
30 minutes – $45
