Kati Basti Treatment

Focusing on the lower back and spinal nerves, Kati Basti corrects postural imbalances and alleviates the tension caused from sitting for prolonged periods.

We recommend at least four treatments to get the full benefit of decreasing toxins around joints and treat ailments such as:

  • Acute and chronic back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Prolapsed discs

How the Treatment Works?

The Therapist prepares dough from special grains which is shaped into a small ring and placed on the affected area. This adheres to the skin and is then filled with heated, medicated oil. The oil is retained within the ring at a specific temperature for a specific time. This helps the oil to penetrate deeper into the tissues, softening the stiff and tight muscles.

Once the oil is removed the therapist will massage specific marma points around the affected area to repair ligaments and tendons, followed by a localised herbal steam to deepen the effect.

A personalised treatment protocol is designed at your first consultation. A home exercise programme will be given to further enhance the result.
