This treatment includes a short consultation and assessment on your first treatment.
A dam made of dough is placed over the affected area and filled with warm medicated oil. This helps to soften, repair and nourish aching tight muscles. After the oil is removed the therapist will perform a back massage.
Kati Basti is deep tissue therapy using heat to heal and oils to repair the tissue. Heat increases blood flow, the increase in blood flow can reduce swelling, assist with pain relief and soften ligaments, tendons and muscles. This in turn allows joints, tendons and ligaments to be stretched further where there is little movement.
