katti basti (low back dough dam)
Katti Basti is a traditional Ayurvedic therapy used to alleviate lower back pain and strengthen the Svadisthana (sacral) Chakra. The Svadisthana Chakra is physically contained in the pelvic bowl and relates to the lower back and reproductive system. Emotionally, when the Svadisthana Chakra is balanced, we develop a loving relationship to ourselves and are able to flow easily in our relationships with others. The Svadisthana Chakra also relates to fertility and creative expression.
A circular dam (donut shaped) made of Urad Dal flour mixed with water is placed over the low back, including the sacrum. Warm oil with an herbal infusion of Rose, Arjuna, Ashoka, Hawthorne, Cinnamon, and Cardamom along with essential oils is poured into the dam over the heart. Reiki (universal love) healing energy is directed into the Svadisthana chakra helping to clear negativity from past relationships and increase your sense of inner peace. Throughout the therapy, the practitioner will remove oil that has cooled and refill the dam with warm oil to maintain a consistent soothing experience. Use this therapy to feel supported as you move forward in all of your relationships.
Combine with the Heart Chakra Lepa Therapy to release relationships from the past and open your heart to new love.
