Benefits of Kansa Vatki Foot Massage

As in reflexology, which targets 'reflex' areas corresponding with bodily organs and systems, Kansa Vatki Foot Massage gives attention to massaging 'Marma Points', an important part of Ayurvedic Medicine. Marma points are found where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. There are 107 Marma points, which form vital energy channels running throughout the body. Several of these Marma Points are targeted on the legs & feet (the true seat of 'prana' - the body's vital energy), stimulating the body's own innate ability to rebalance and harmonise the 'doshas'.
The seven Chakras (energy centres) cited on the feet (the foundation of consciousness) are also massaged during the treatment to balance the soul.
