Low Back Oil Therapy – Kati Basti

Description

This treatment is focused on maintaining a pool of herbalised oil or herbal water on the lower back for the purpose of reducing inflammation and pain caused by Lumbar Spondylosis, Sciatica, and Osteoporosis. The treatment starts off with a back massage and warm herbal boluses.  After, the technician creates a dough dam along the spine in which herbal oil is poured into.  It is very balancing for Vata, and in particular, Apana Vayu.  It nourishes the root and second chakra thereby helping to improve libido, urinary problems, prostate problems, and menstrual problems.   It helps mental functioning if one has a problem with Apana Vayu.
