If you suffer from lower or upper back pain, arthritis, sciatica, slipped disc or sports related injuries, Kati Basti could be just the thing for you. Acute or chronic musculoskeletal problems don't have to weigh you down. Kati Basti is an ayurvedic massage technique that targets your specific area of concern in a way that acts in consideration of the properties of your muscle and tissue. All elements of this treatments are designed to work with you towards a body free of pain and graceful in movement.

When you have acute or chronic issues, the muscles are generally stiff, tight or inflamed. The Kati Basti technique works to first prepare the affected area by softening the muscles and relaxing the surrounding tissue. Quite often, this important step is missed in similar treatments and the practitioner will instead start their work on the tight muscles straight away which can result in more damage being caused.

You will benefit from Kati Basti if you suffer from the following:

- Lower or upper back pain
- Arthritis 
- Frozen Shoulder
- Stiff neck and neck pains
- Ankylospondylitis sciatica
- Prolapsed or herniated (slipped) disc
- Sports related injuries

Kati Basti is a proven ayurvedic programme for the specific treatment of musculoskeletal issues. Dough is shaped into a small ring, placed over the affected area and then filled with heated, medicated oil. The warm oil penetrates the stiff muscle tissue, softening and relaxing and allowing the natural movement of the muscle to remove the build up of waste. The warmth also promotes blood flow to the affected area which supports the healing process and prevents atrophy and tightening of the surrounding muscles resulting from inactivity. Once the oil is removed the therapist will massage the whole back, paying particular attention to the affected area, which further softens and relaxes these tight muscles. Finally, the treatment concludes with a jet of herbalised steam over the entire back, which enhances the effect of the treatment and helps to take the oil deeper into the muscle tissue.
