Kati Basti

Advait Ayurveda offers you solutions to many of your physical and mental problems that seem chronic and everlasting. That is why today Ayurvedic therapies have become so trendy and one of the highly praised therapy is Kati Basti Therapy.

Kati Basti is non-invasive Ayurveda therapy for backache. It is also good to keep the spine healthy. Generally, Basti treatment is used to promote the elimination of the Vata Dosha. Basti involves introducing medicinal substances such as herbal oils in liquid form on affected parts of the body until the oil gets absorbed through skin pores & becomes part of the tissue.

In Kati Basti warm Medicated oil is kept on the affected part of the back region for a pre-stipulated time. This stimulates blood flow to the affected area and releases the blocked or vitiated Vata Dosha. This way it, to an extent, helps eliminate the root cause of back pain.

Reasons for back pain could be many – weakness of spine muscles, tissues & nerves, strenuous activity, severe illness, accidental injury or psychological problems. The cause could also be structural deformity/postural deformity. A physician needs to examine the patient properly to find out the exact cause and then decide the line of treatment. Painkillers and injections are short term solutions that patients soon get tired of.

Backache is a musculoskeletal disorder. Due to a sedentary lifestyle and less physical activity backaches have become increasingly common.

Kati Basti is one of the best options to treat all kinds of backaches. Kati refers to the low back and Basti stands for retaining something inside, in this case, medicated oil where it is absorbed by the tissues. “The procedure of applying heat to the sacral or lumbar region by retaining warm medicated oil with in a specially formed frame in this area is popularly known as ‘Kati Basti’. This is a form of giving fomentation to the localized area.” Kati Basti helps make the spine supple and flexible.
