Kati Basti

Lower Back Therapy

In Sanskrit, ‘Kati’ means lower back and ‘Basti’ means to retain. In the modern world, the sedentary lifestyle coupled with hours of spending time sitting in front of digital devices leads to the back losing strength from stress, poor posture, physical trauma, and poor diet. The use of herbal oil on the back has therapeutic, pain-relieving, and strengthening benefits.

The Benefits of Kati Basti

Kati Basti is a soothing lower back treatment where a generous quantity of herbal oils are retained on the back to heal pain, inflammation, and stiffness. The warm herbal oil allows absorption into muscles, ligaments, and tendons, thereby relaxing the back and healing any underlying conditions, calming pain and stiffness. The treatment additionally de-stress the entire body.

Sooth Pain in Lower Back & Limbs

The herbal oil penetrates deeply into the muscles and helps address pain in the lower back.

Relieves Stiffness in Lower Back & Limbs

In addition to relieving stiffness, the therapy helps  restore the alignment of the spine.

Strengthens Lower Back

The herbs in the medicated oil have healing properties that strengthen the back from within.

Soothes Nerves

The oil and the massage that follows has a therapeutic effect that soothes the nerves

Enhances Blood Supply

Promotes better circulation by removing stagnant blood, fluids, and toxins from the lower back area.

Improves Movements

The musculoskeletal therapy aids in promoting cellular memory of the muscle tissue thus improving movements.

Hace tres anos fui diagnosticada con cáncer de mama, un tumor mucinoso en el pecho izquierdo el cual fue extraido quirúrgicamente, fui sometida a 30 dias de radiación. Al ano siguiente al realizarme un estudio el diagnostico fue una severa inflamacion en diversos órganos de mi cuerpo tales como medula osea, ovarios, timo, bazo y una adenopatía en un ganglio de mama por lo que me reliazaron 10 radiaciones mas.


I initially went to see Vaidya Jay at the request of my daughter. She had been to him and couldn't say enough good things about him. I was apprehensive at first. I'm a middle aged woman who was overweight, high cholesterol, and heading toward pre diabetes. Upon meeting Vaidya Jay, he puts you at ease right away. He listens very patiently, and has a way that I've never encountered with any other Vaidya of breaking everything down for you. He gets to the root of the problem which in return everything begins to make sense and falls into place.
