Kati Basti – A special way to treat the Lower Back

Lower back pain is very common in the fast life style today. Ayurveda has a special treatment for it called Kati Basti. Kati stands for lower back and Basti for retention. The treatment is to rejuvenate and retain the strength of the lower back on which the whole body weight is. The lumbo sacral therapy is done using hot oil and herbal decoctions. The treatment achieves local oleation which means addition of fat for making the tissues supple and also sudation which is removing excessive salt from the body.
