How does Ayurvedic KV Foot Massage Work?

According to Dr Vasant Lad, Medical Director of the Ayurveda Hospital in Pune, India, we can reduce stress, activate our immune system and even heal our body, mind and consciousness through the simple act of foot massage.

The foot is divided into different zones, which are each linked to an element.

An Ayurvedic foot massage is said to balance the bodily doshas — vata, pitta and kapha.

The 3 doshas are present in every cell as a genetic code and create a “unique, biochemical lab” in every individual’s body. Dr Lad points out that since the combinations of vata, pitta and kapha are endless, each person has a constitution that is “as unique as his fingerprint.” In most people, however, one dosha is primary, another is secondary, and the third is least prominent. Some people could have two dominant doshas.

In Ayurvedic philosophy, wellness and the ability to heal are dependent upon the free flow of energy (prana). Prana is the vital life force that supplies the body and mind with energetic nourishment. The circulation of prana is facilitated via the chakras and a network of fine energy pathways-called-nadis. Kansa Vatki foot massage has a very special place within Ayurvedic tradition.

What to expect during an Ayurvedic Massage.

An hour in duration, the massage begins by cleansing the feet, followed by some relaxing foot and leg effleurage movements. Slowly and methodically the toes, feet, ankles and calves are helped to relax. The massage continues with specific moves performed with the back of the 3 metal Kansa Vtki bowl as oil is rubbed into the sole of the foot. The massage is concluded with a re balancing sequence of marma massage (Indian acupressure points) of the foot.

Cost and session duration

£35 for 1 hour with a special offer of £110 for 4 sessions when paid in advance.

Did you know?

When it's not possible to receive a complete Kansa Vatki Foot Massage, self-help techniques can come in handy.

Rubbing olive or sesame oil on the soles of the feet — especially at bedtime — can calm the vata dosha and induce a sound sleep.
