Kati Basti

Kati basti

Musculoskeletal Treatments for sciatica, lower and upper back pain, tightness and restricted movement of the neck, back and shoulder area. A dam made of dough is placed over the affected area and filled with warm medicated oil. This helps to soften, repair and nourish aching tight muscles. After the oil is removed the therapist will perform a back massage followed by an herbal steam to help deepen the effect of the treatment.

Kati Basti is deep tissue therapy using heat to heal and oils to repair the tissue. Heat increases blood flow, the increase in blood flow can reduce swelling, assist with pain relief and soften ligaments, tendons and muscles. This in turn allows joints, tendons and ligaments to be stretched further where there is little movement.

How often should you have Kati Basti?

Depends on the individual for acute cases 1 or 2 visits will give you the relief you need with long term results, for more chronic cases a program is recommended which would include treatments weekly to every 10 days depending on the individual. Yoga therapy sessions are highly recommended to aid with the healing process and for improved long term results.
