Pristha Basti is a Sanskrit term comprised of two words: Pristha (Spinal Cord) and Basti (Oil Retaining). By making compartments, warm medicinal oil is poured on the Spinal Cord during this procedure. The treatment’s objective is to strengthen the spinal cord. Blood flow to the body and brain is significantly facilitated by the spinal cord. Spinal disabilities may result from being unaware of our everyday routine. In order to enhance the function of the nervous system and strengthen back muscles, Ayurveda has recommended this treatment.
1) Gently massage the whole back with the recommended warm medicinal oil.
2) On top of the spinal cord, from the neck to the lumbar region, a chamber made of black gram dough is constructed. The dough ring needs to be positioned so that it surrounds the whole spine.
3) Check the temperature and pour the warm oil into the compartment after making sure the ring is leak-proof.
4) Once that has cooled, cotton gauze is used to press it out, and the process is repeated. The oil’s temperature needs to be held steady throughout the procedure.
5) The ring is taken off at the conclusion of the procedure, and you can massage the affected region lightly afterward.
