Chakra Basti

Derived from Sanskrit , the term can be broken down into two words : 'Chakra' meaning Wheel and 'Basti' meaning Container. Also known as Nabhi Basti, this treatment is applied to the umbilical region.

Nabhi/Navel is considered marma in Ayurveda; marma being an integral point where there are different veins, arteries, joints, and other such channels carrying PRANA or life converge.

This therapy contributes to digestion, absorption and facilitates release of deep seated emotions. Clearly, it is beneficial during constipation, poor appetite, abdominal pain and discomfort. The therapy starts with gentle abdominal massage. It is followed by creating a wheat/black gram dough pool over the navel. The therapist then pours (or squeezes with a cotton gauze) hot medicated oil or ghee in this Dam which is glued to the skin with the help of water. The whole procedure is completed in a duration of 30-45 minutes.

Basti

Basti in its natural sense means "to stay". It can refer to the urinary bladder as well. Basti chikatsa is superior to all treatments because of its peculiar ability to mollify VATA dosha which is responsible for any disease process. It does the aforementioned through the intestinal tract and is beneficial for joint pain, acidity, back pain, constipation, impotency, chronic fever, scanty menses, and many such psychological physiological dysfunctions. It is essentially very effective for patients suffering from paralysis.

Basti chikatsa can be given in two ways: external and internal. In the former, warm medicated oils are poured over specific parts of the body in a special arrangement to provide local relief to the area covered. In internal basti, the medicated decoctions are administered into the anal canal via a tube. To clean the colon, Medicated oil or ghee and a herbal decoction is given as enema.

Greeva Basti

Derived from Sanskrit, the term Greeva Basti can be broken down into Greeva which means neck and Basti which means container. Like chakra Basti, it's a hot oil therapy performed with either medicated oil or freshly prepared medical decoction. Greeva Basti particularly addresses the spine, muscles and skeletal tissues of neck and shoulder.

It improves circulation, flexibility and brings smooth movement. It can relieve an individual from the following conditions: compression fractures, cervical spondylitis, cervical disc lesion, chronic pain in neck region and frozen shoulder. Greeva Basti is usually performed by two therapists over a duration of 30 minutes for effective treatment.

A reservoir made of black gram dough is built up on the neck, which should cover all the vertebrae of neck and 2-3 vertebrae of the thoracic region. Medicated oil is then slowly poured in this reservoir. When the oil cools down, it is removed with the help of a cotton gauze and the aforementioned is repeated three- four times before removing the reservoir.
