Kansa massage is a massage therapy that employs the practice of using bronze metal hand tools to do touch and kneading. Kansa, a type of bronze, is also used to produce sacred musical instruments like bells, singing bowls, statues, and other religious items.
They are closely associated with powerful healing of the mind, the body, and the spirit. The resonant tones of the instruments are used to produce soothing tones, illicit focus,
and calm the mind.
