Kati Vasti | Deep Oil Therapy For Back
Kati Vasti (also known as Kati Basti) is an ayurvedic deep tissue treatment that aids in the treatment of lower back ailments. Kati refers to the lower back, while Vasti refers to the ‘dam’ here made of gluten free flour filled with herbalized oil. This massage is carried out by retaining the warm oil inside the dam over the lumbosacral or lower back region for a certain time, followed by a leg and back massage. The herbalized oil gets absorbed and reduces stiffness, pain, and improves blood circulation in the lower back. Kati Vasti is beneficial in the treatment of slipped disc, piriformis syndrome, spondylolisthesis, osteoporosis, and other lower back ailments.
