For centuries, ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and unique tools have been used together to enhance health and strength, increase energy, support general well-being & longevity and relieve stress.
And today, in 2017, you get to not just discover, but also experience this Ayurvedic Secret - learn an ancient art and use a unique set of tools to:
Said to be one of the most innovative alloys of human kind, it was discovered to have extraordinary beauty enhancing and soothing properties-
It is the healing metal of India - Kansa.
Kansa was first made in the Bronze Age approximately 5000 years ago by the Harappans - the inhabitants of the Indus Valley, the very same culture that is thought to have developed the principles and practices of Ayurveda - India’s ancient holistic healing system.
The metal Kansa is an alloy of copper and tin. Known in the West as bronze, it was the first of humanity's metal alloys - and perhaps the most significant.
Being harder and more durable than other materials available at that time, it enabled these ancient people to create superior metal tools, sacred statues, housewares, bells and gongs as well as weapons and armor. Kansa, or bronze as we would name it, revolutionized the ancient world in many ways.
Kansa is considered to be the healing metal of Ayurveda, the Science of Health and Longevity practiced throughout the East.
Known to have extraordinary beauty enhancing and soothing properties, Kansa has a powerful effect as a stress reliever, for relaxation and the subtle body energies known in Eastern medicine.
Kansa has many uses; for utensils and implements used in ceremonies. Along with these uses, there has been the tradition of Ayurvedic physicians recommending the use of Kansa on the feet for their clients.
Increased interest in holistic healing traditions together with a heightened value being placed on the beauty and quality of handcrafted tools has prompted a revival of the classic Indian traditional art of Kansa, the making of specialized metal alloys.
The Kansa massage tool is set upon a hand carved handle that is irresistible to the eye - naturally drawing one to pick it up and use it. It is said to be even more effective than gold or silver.
These wands or tools are used to achieve stunning results on the face, feet and other parts of the body.
So, right before we explore these tools in greater detail and learn how to use them, let’s take a look at what really happens when you use them for specific purposes:
You can use the Kansa tools to give yourself, your client or loved one a Kansa Facial. It:
Rubbing Kansa over the feet is one of the most traditional uses of Kansa for enhanced wellness. Traditionally, Ayurvedic physicians would send families home with a Kansa foot tool in order for someone in the family to rub the Kansa metal on the feet of the client every night.
But, in the words of our experts:
“These are just some of the benefits. We see new things and hear great stories of how people are being helped by our Kansa wands on a weekly basis. You see great results by using the Original Kansa Wands with our simple to learn, time-tested protocols”

Ayurveda, the study of longevity, offers everyone the means to discover their own personal path toward health, strength, beauty of body, mental clarity, and joy. Although this knowledge is at least 5000 years old, Ayurveda's principles and practical bodycare techniques still offer deep-reaching solutions to some of the most common present day problems. Melanie has developed many of these unique techniques into successful spa services that her students often say are just as soothing and healing to give as to receive. Melanie is committed to promoting these treatments in a manner that is in keeping with tradition, yet at the same time, being well-matched to modern needs and spa treatment settings.

The Kansa tools were devised to be used in ways that would give maximum health and beauty benefits and this is where the expertise of Robert and Melanie Sachs stands unmatched.
Melanie and Robert explain:
“In our practice, we trust traditional approaches. We test them to see if they get the results they claim and then try to explain why. In the end the why is less important than the result, especially if someone is in pain or suffering in some way. Thus, along with the traditional practices using Kansa that we have learned, we have also brought to the market and into your homes, methods and protocols that we know you will enjoy and get benefit from.”

I bought the Kansa wand to help with tension headaches as I grind my teeth through the night. The Kansa wand is a wee miracle worker in this respect! No more headaches even though I still grind my teeth. I certainly do recommend the Kansa wand to everyone who suffers from tension headaches. I use the wand in the evening when I'm watching the telly, it's comfortable, relaxing and easy to use. My skin has certainly improved and I have had quite a few compliments regarding my complexion. I am 65 and will continue to use the wand for a long time.
Whoa. I used my Kansa Wand for the first time on my face. I absolutely love it! The perfect weight, the perfect smoothness! I used a facial oil and then massaged my face in an upward motion, concentrating on my jaw line and the third eye area. SO relaxing, and my skin feels and looks fantastic. I'm 64 years old... I need this! THANK YOU!
THE PERSONAL KANSA FACE WAND
Small and lightweight, this particular wand is designed to easily fit your hands and touch all the specific points on your face to give you effective results like gentle tightening, glow and vitality, and hydration of skin.
This wand is easy to use and carry around.
(Melanie Sachs’s hallmark face rejuvenation protocol will put the Original Kansa Face Wand to the best use with documented, guaranteed results. You can see the transformation in this before-and-after image here. Melanie shows how to use it both on yourself at home and on a client in a professional setting- you’ll get to learn more about it below!)
THE MEDIUM KANSA FACE AND BODY WAND
This specific wand can be used both on the face and on other parts of the body. It is a medium sized wand- neither too small, nor too large. This wand works great with the limbs and even on the abdominal area.
THE LARGE KANSA FOOT WAND
With a large Kansa surface, this wand has been specifically designed for use on the feet:
Robert Sachs has been performing the Kansa Foot massage on hundreds of clients for decades with stupendous results! On performing his thoughtfully defined Foot Massage Protocol, along with other aforementioned benefits, his clients have reported:
Robert reveals how to use the Original Kansa Foot Massage Wands with his specific foot massage techniques and teaches you how to perform them on yourself or your loved ones at home, as well as on your clients in a professional setting. More about this below!
THE MARMA TOOL
This wand is a very unique innovation, even lighter than the other face wand and easy to hold, specifically designed - very thoughtfully - with a much smaller, much more targeted Kansa surface to focus on Marma points. In Melanie’s words:
“I love sharing about Marma because I have witnessed so many amazing things happen with just a gentle touch to these special points.
Whilst on a plane journey I helped an elderly woman give herself relief from eye pain that she was suffering from for three months, by touching three pairs of Marma points that benefit the eyes.
I myself experienced the best night's sleep of my life even though it was in a cold room on an inflatable mattress after a less than five minute Marma ritual from a master Marma practicioner.
A fifty-year-old friend reported she felt like she was seventeen again after a week of Marmas.
The owner of a local spa decided to devote her whole menu to Ayurvedic treatments after having a major heart opening experience during a Marma regime.
In my experience, Marma regimes absolutely work on body, mind and spirit. Rejuvenating the body, bringing clarity to the mind and uplifting us and opening us to share our new found energy with our family and friends.”
Not only is
this the only course of its kind - the first, the original, the only training course available on this topic (accessible only on The Ayurveda Experience platform)
our experts are perhaps the only couple in the US to have practiced and studied Kansa and its effects for over 30 years and thus the knowledge imparted in this course is backed by years of first-hand experience and observation of results.
this course has been designed to meet both home use and spa use needs. There are 2 sets of key demonstrations - one on the self for home use, and one on another for both your loved ones and clients in a spa setting.
This course, the complete package comes with a 100% Satisfaction, 60-Day Money Back Guarantee which means that there’s absolutely no risk- if you think it doesn’t work for you, you can simply write to us for a courteous refund.
The profundity of the knowledge imparted in this course, the practicality of the teaching, the effectivity of the tools and the protocols give us immense confidence and thus The Ayurveda Experience gives you total fall-back support with a 3 pronged guarantee:
"This tool really seems to work. I can see the difference in the size of my pores already and my skin feels slightly tighter. I've only used it twice and it's very nice to use, I used it last night before I went to sleep and I slept well from 9 to 8 and did not wake up at all. That's unusual!"
"LOVE!!! I used mine for the first time on clients today and it was amazing! I thought there might be a bit of a learning curve and some time needed to get the hang of it in my hands. Not the case at all. I felt perfectly at ease like I had been performing this technique for ages!!!"
"As soon as I started using it, I immediately felt its incredible power. There is no exaggeration here, massaging one's face with this Wand, you can feel the warmth and its soothing effects. I think this might be the best thing ever for my skin and well-being."
One of the biggest reasons we decided to back this course is that Kansa works! Yes, it simply works! And we wanted everybody to get it right - learn this precious knowledge which would make so many people across the globe enjoy better skin, deeper relaxation with easier, faster and harmless procedures most comfortably and most affordably. Most skin procedures involve chemicals, electronic gadgets, and radiations - the effects of which we have heard enough about, but cannot do much about. And, to top it all, they’re crazy expensive, and yet we pay for them, all the time. Kansa is beautifully effective and totally affordable.
A hidden treasure
The tradition of Kansa massage has immense benefits, and has been practiced for generations in some parts of the world, and yet today, it remains one of the most unexplored traditions. Many people are still unaware or bereft of its benefits and we want to ensure that you get to experience the best of health through something as easy and wonderful as a Kansa Massage protocol. Truly, a Kansa Experience is unlike any other rejuvenating, healing and beauty experience!
Unmatched expertise and depth of experience
The Sachs have delved extensively into Kansa, Ayurveda, massage therapy and being professional therapists themselves, they’ve also seen results like few other have. Few others have gone so far in deep researching about Kansa not in theory but in practice, hands on. Their knowledge is precious and rather useful for the world.
Not only are Melanie and Robert Sachs genuinely passionate about their work, but they’re also phenomenal individuals who bring in unparalleled compassion, thoughtfulness and delicacy to their teaching. Their contribution to spreading the stupendous benefits and often missed significance of Ayurvedic Body Work is rather noteworthy. We, at The Ayurveda Experience, thought that their thoughts, ideas and work are deeply impactful and have a truly transformational quality that the world can benefit much from and thus, here you are, reading this page.
Tailored to suit Western needs
The practical application of holistic, Eastern alternative sciences sometimes needs to take into consideration the inevitable effects of your location in time and space and thus include alterations to make things more suitable to a modern, Western audience.
In fact, Ayurveda’s 8 considerations in diagnosis involve time, geography and weather conditions.
We tailor make our courses to ensure that they’re easily understandable, easy to follow and practice in normal day-to-day, modern life and have results that hold through today’s stress-filled, fast-paced lifestyle.
A rare handicraft skill, a dying tradition
Producing the metal Kansa is a tough and a laborious process. In many parts of India, it is still done manually by local artisans who have been traditionally involved with this skill for generations. Due to the tough and taxing process of creating the metal and then hammering it with hands into the desired shapes, not to mention its great healing properties, it is a very precious metal today. This skill of Kansa handicraft is a slowly dying tradition and we want to do our bit in protecting this beautiful tradition and enabling many others to live better with the great healing benefits of pure, top quality Kansa.
"Hi, I’m Deb Perkinson and I’m an Ayurvedic practitioner, a water therapist and I also teach gyrotonic. I also use the Kansa on my clients, I have not used it on myself in full body before so this was a unique experience for me. I felt things in my body that I haven’t felt in quite a while, and what was interesting was when I was using it in my lower extremities, I could get a little itch in my nose or my ears would pop, as well as my spine which indicates to me that I was having openings which is quite nice, frankly.
The sphere shape fits into the areas much nicer than other tools that I’ve used. It’s soothing, it has this wonderful sense of this energy that comes into the body and allows for the interstitial fluids to move more. I could feel the energy changing in my body. I feel much tighter. My skin, my muscles feel awake, my feet feel more centred and my liver feels a little bit more cleansed as well."
"My short treatment with Robert was truly incredible. Even just doing it for that short period of time in 10 minutes, I felt an immediate shift. It’s just incredible how quickly that type of regime can help you to shift into a more relaxed stage. I got off the table and had to go teach a qi gong class and I felt like it already put me in that space. So when I drove, I felt really calm and relaxed driving, and when I was teaching I felt like I had already shifted into that more grounded state before I even started the class. This actually influenced my students to feel better too, I think I taught a better class so all the way around it’s been a good day since this morning.
I’m an Ayurvedic practitioner and a yoga instructor and a qi gong instructor as well, so I have a little bit of background in this area. I really like this tool; I’ve experienced this before just working with myself on it, and just having a practitioner use it on me is different than somebody giving you a hands-on massage. It felt more powerful and, as Robert was saying when he was working on the stomach area, it felt less intrusive than if someone was working with their hands on that area and it actually felt really soothing to my whole digestive system. I could feel movement going on. I think it’s really important to be able to touch and work the area because all of our organs are right there. Most therapists ignore that area, and if you have that tool, it creates a little bit of a distance in that – like I said, you’re not working with your hands but it’s much more effective. I really like the tool and feel like it’s got a lot of healing qualities to it that bring your massage or therapy to a different level."
"Hi, I’m Deborah and I live here in the beautiful central coast. I’m originally from Germany and I moved here because of the friendliness of the people, the sunshine and the good food. Today I got the Kansa Wand massage for my feet. I have been doing a lot of yoga and a lot of dance in the last two years and I sometimes really feel it in my feet; they get tired. After this massage I feel really good, it feel so much lighter and refreshed. During the massage I really enjoyed the coolness of the metal of the wand and how gentle the treatment is. There is no pressure like sometimes with other foot massages which use a lot of pressure on several points and that can be really painful. This doesn’t hurt at all, it’s a very pleasant and relaxing experience. I was really surprised to see how black the tissue was and my feet still look a little black on the sole. I wasn’t even aware I had so much acidity in me but I guess I had a lot of stress recently because I moved and had to pack and unpack all my things and it took a while. So maybe that stress still shows in my feet. All in all it’s a wonderful experience and my feet really feel as if they are new. I can’t wait to dance tonight. The Kansa wand is such an extraordinary tool, it really feels different than other tools that people have used for Marma massage or reflexology. It is gentle, effective, cool and very relaxing."
"My name is Andrea and I’m a filmmaker locally here and I probably have just had the best massage ever.
The nice thing about this was that the face was smooth and I didn’t feel fingernails digging in to me with regular hand massage. It was able to go deep without feeling elbows pushing in or poking and prodding and I don’t have to worry about tickle spots on the back. It was a nice firm massage technique that didn’t poke and prod at me so it wasn’t invasive.
The foot massage was nice and deep and I stand on my feet a lot for filming 12-14 hour days so I don’t feel my feet anymore -sometimes they go numb - and I actually felt energy going through them. I remembered that there are toes connected to the feet so this was a very relaxing and rejuvenating treatment for my feet.
Robert and Melanie’s treatment style is very gentle and not invasive. Firm, but welcoming and they have a very kind touch and presence to them. A massage can be very uncomfortable for some people – you’re naked on a table – but they don’t make you feel uncomfortable. They make you feel very welcomed and it’s an experience that is relaxing and calming.
The tool’s very different, I was a little hesitant when I first saw these tools - they didn’t seem as if they would be as effective as hands and elbows and body weight but they clearly are and I probably got a deeper massage from the tool. The tool is very even and feels smooth on the skin so it’s not like rock, it was very gentle and very soothing.
"My name is Eric and I’m 51 years old. I just worked a 10-hour day, I got up at 5 o’clock this morning and I’ve been staring at a computer screen most of the day. I came home, feeling pretty tired like I usually do. Typically I’ll have a glass of wine and I’ll feel even more tired afterwards. I just used the tool on my face for a few minutes and I feel fantastic. I feel wide awake like I just woke up from a nap, which is awesome. I’m going for a walk on the beach with my wife and daughter in a few minutes and instead of dragging my feet I’ll be fully energized."
