Kati Basti

The term Kati Basti may be unfamiliar to the West, and it’s Western translation may be regarded as a topic not to be talked about regularly. To most Westerners, the word ‘enema’ does not have many positive connotations and is generally treated as a taboo subject. However, in Ayurveda, an enema often refers to the external variety.

A dough of gram flour is placed on the afflicted area in a doughnut shape, sealing against the skin to create a water-tight reservoir. Warm medicated oil is then poured into this personal cistern and left to foment, seeping into the client’s sacrolumbar region.
