Kati Basti

Kati Basti – Lower back treatment

The Katti Basti begins with a lower back massage, the back is then wiped with warm water before a dough ring is placed on the lower back.  It is applied to the lumbar-sacral area of the spine, which is a major site of Vata. The warm medicated oil is slowly poured or swabbed onto the lower back in the dough ring. When the oil cools down, it is squeezed out with cotton gauze and the procedure is repeated a few times. Katti basti has a wide use for any pain, strain, or tension in lower or upper back. Most of the time, vata dosha is the culprit in this area.
An Ayurvedic explanation: In the subtle body, the nadis emerge from manipura (navel) chakra and supply energy to the upper and lower extremities and back.
The indications for this therapy are:

  • Backache (particularly the lumbar region)
  • Degenerative spine changes
Compressed discs
  • Sciatica
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain
Spinal cord compression.

The healing properties of herbal oils used for this basti deeply clean and fortify the blood, build strong muscle and connective tissues, and lubricate the joints. Kati basti is likely to alleviate most types of low-back pain. This special technique is aimed at providing relief by bathing the lower back for twenty to fifty minutes.
