About Greeva Basti Therapy

The most special treatment for neck discomfort and conditions affecting the cervical region is Greeva Basti.

On the massage table, the subject is made to lie on prone position. The damaged cervical region is then covered with a reservoir made of gram flour or wheat flour. It is filled with lukewarm medicinal oil and left for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Warm medicinal oil is substituted for the cooled oil after the oil has been squeezed out with a cotton swab. The treatment takes roughly 30 minutes.

The affected area is then gently rubbed with the same oil to enhance the medicinal oil’s absorption after the procedure.
