Kati vasti therapy for improving lower back problems


Lower back pains are one of the most excruciating pains in the human body and are not something worth enjoying at all. Although, these pains used to occur in people as they age, leading a sedentary lifestyle with little to no exercise has increased the risk of getting these conditions very early. Even though there are several treatments for lower back pain, spinal related issues, preferring kati vasti therapy, a natural ayurvedic treatment is more preferred among people in recent times. Being an ayurvedic treatment, it is considered safe and offers long-lasting pain relief and healing through natural means.

What makes this treatment the preferred choice for many is that unlike a cure for lower back ache, Kativasti can be considered as a preventive treatment against lower back problems & related issues that may occur in the future. Kativasti is derived from the words “Kati” meaning lower back & “vasti”, a pouch-like arrangement, so in essence, the treatment involves pouring medicated oils into a specifically constructed pouch which is placed on the lower back. The oil poured into the pouch gets absorbed into the skin and promotes natural healing.

The medications are determined by qualified ayurvedic practitioners based on the person’s body type and health conditions. After pouring the oil, it is replaced at regular intervals by the therapists and also the oil heat is maintained throughout the process. The oil used for this treatment has several healing properties that cleanses the blood, improves muscle strength and connective tissue health.

The sole reason why Kativasti is popular is that it is a proven ayurvedic deep tissue procedure for treating lower back issues, back traction, cervical spondylosis and related problems.
