Vasti (oil bath) Therapies

Vasti therapies are used cleanse, relax, soothe, nourish and rejuvenate the body in localised areas known as Chakras or energy centers where multiple body systems and tissues intersect. In these localised Snehana therapies, a circular dam of organic flour is sealed around the indicated area where constantly replenished warm organic herbal aroma-therapeutic Samya oils are poured and kept. These oils are specifically prepared to penetrate deep into the tissues in order to soften, warm and detoxify these vital points which affect the whole body. These therapies must be performed by a well qualified and experienced Registered Advanced Ayurvedic Practitioner.
