Kati Basti is an ayurvedic treatment exclusively followed to take care of lower back disorders in an individual. Musculoskeletal disorders can be aggravated with dryness and prolonged stiffness which increases the Vata Dosha, that increases the inflammation of the body resulting in extreme pain.  

When the quantity of the Vata increases, it reduces the blood flow to the area, which affects the bone tissues, leading to many problems.

The method of treatment for Kati Basti:

The word Kati means lower back, and Basti means to store. It means holding something in the lower back to help release the pain. The pelvis, sacrum, colon and spine are considered the places of Vata dosha, and the imbalance of this first shows up on these points.

Ayurhitam relies on the 5000-year old tradition of healing which always begins with the cleansing of aura before begining any kind of treatment.

The person is asked to lie face down on the massage table.Organic flour dough is placed approximately five inches in diameter on the lower back. The dough is positioned to be devoid of any leaks from the surrounding. Warm, medicated oil is poured inside the reservoir, concentrating on the oil’s healing benefits. The warm oil lubricates and nourishes the stiff joints by removing the excess cold, dry and rough areas of the lower body that directly or indirectly impact mobility. The warm oil treatment also nourishes the spinal discs and counters the symptoms of arthritis.

After 40-50 min, the oil is carefully removed and our therapist gently massages the area.
