Kati Basti is a deeply pacifying massage cure of traditional Indian medicine Ayurveda, in which soothing warm herbal oil is retained on the lower part of the back area using a ring made from dough. The natural oils used for this treatment are specifically chosen according to Ayurvedic body type or body constitution type. The oil is maintained within the ring at a particular temperature for a particular time. This allows the oil to penetrate further into the cells, softening the firm and limited muscles. Once the oil is removed the therapist will massage particular marma (energy) points around the involved place to fix muscle, ligaments, tendons, and structures. This procedure is followed by a hot herbal fomentation treatment i.e Nadi Swedana for 10 minutes which apply a jet of herbalised steam to the Back. (charged extra)
