The number of people who suffer from chronic back pain with ongoing medication or some invasive treatments is constantly on raise and it is alarming.
According to Ayurvedic medicine, the back pain refers to “kati soola” and sciatica refers to “Gridhrasi”, which was explained very thoroughly in Ayurvedic classical texts about the causative factors, patho-physiology and its treatment methods.
Kati vasti is one among the many Ayurvedic rejuvenative procedures, where we use dough made up of lentil flour which is constructed on the affected areas and later filled with warm medicated oils for 30 to 45 minutes.
Ayurvedic kati vasti procedure is continued for either 3, 7 or 14 episodes and is always followed by a good Ayurvedic massage with oils and suitable steaming procedures for better results. You can even undergo a massage before the procedure.
