Kati Vasti is a localised therapy used in Ayurveda to treat pain and disease affecting the muscles, tissues, joints and spinal vertebrae in the lower back region. It is a gentle treatment suitable for anyone who wants to maintain or improve lower back health.
“Kati” means lower back and “Vasti” denotes a compartment or container. Kati Vasti is one of several Vasti treatments offered at Sunshine Ayurveda.
In Kati Vasti, a pool of warm medicated dosha-specific oil is kept in contact with the skin of your lower-back region. The oil is held in place by a ring-shaped hardened dough formation made from special black gram flour.
