In Ayurveda, Kati Basti is a simple oil therapy which has profound effects. In classical Kati Basti, The herbal paste is shaped into a small round ring about 4- 5 inches in diameter and is placed on the back around the painful area. Warm medicated oil is squeezed into the well. The oil is gently massaged on the back. In our subtle body the nadis emerge from Manipura charka and supply energy to upper and lower extremities and to the back. So any pain, strain or tension in lower or upper back is relieved by Katibasti.
