If you want to relieve any lower back tension, Kati Basti is for you. This specialized therapy relieves and nourishes the lower back using a dough dam placed over the area of the lumbo-sacral spine and then filled with warm organic herbal-infused oil. As it absorbs through your skin, it aids in increased circulation to the surrounding muscles, tissues, ligaments, and nerve endings, helping to reduce stiffness, rigidity, soreness, and acute or chronic lower back pain. This treatment is healing and nourishing for spinal problems, such as stenosis, arthritis, and herniated discs.

Benefits of Kati Basti
• Increases the circulation in the region, as the herbal oil gets deeply absorbed into the skin, and both nourishes and strengthens the muscles and nerves
• Pacifies one of the primary sites of Vata, relieving pain, soreness, and tension and restoring flexibility
• Relieves chronic lower backaches and painful muscle spasms, stiffness, and degenerative problems
