Kati Basti

Kati basti is a medicinal oil treatment for relieving tensions of the lower back.
The patient lays down on their stomach,  a ring is fixed on their back with a paste made of a special flour and water. The therapist poors very warm oil inside the circle, this sesame-based oil relieve all tensions and will penetrate deep into Ashti dhathu (the bone tiissues). The therapist must keep the oil very warm for 30 mn after which the patient receives a short massage with the same oil. A complete massage followed by a steam bath is highly recommended. 



Kansu bowl

We are proposing 2 kinds of treatment with Kansu bowl:
- A foot massage with ghee (clarified butter) with the bowl, this re-harmonises heat in all the body and brings peace.
- A back massage  with medicinal oil and the kansu bowl,  it removescongestion, relieves tensions of the lower back, shoulders and neck.

 

Massages

Body massage with warm oil is part of the tradition in Ayurveda, the ancestral natural medicine of India. Vedicare Ayurvedic massage is adapted to  the needs of westerners:
It disloges toxins, brings Prana (vital energy) into the physical and pranic bodies. It harmonizes the doshas (ayurvedic constitutions). It relieves tensions, nourrishes and stimulates the 7 dhathus (tissues) thanks to deep massage. 
 It includes digipressure on marma points, along the  "nadis".


Swedhana, steam bath

According to Ayurveda, each massage should be followed up with heat in order to help the oil penetrate into the deep tissues. Steam is soft because it contains water, and head & neck must be out of the steam box, because they should not be heated.
Lavender steam or other herbs from our valley will help you perspire. The session ends when the person is sweating on the forehead. This is a very pleasant moment indeed.
 

Pinda swedhana

Pinda swedhana is a massage practice with hot pouches filled with :
- River sand or bricks for bringing silicium to Asthi, the bone Dhathu, and remove ama vata (toxins), 
or
- Milk porridge with red rice & herbs for nourrishing the Dhathus (tissues).
The treatment starts with a generous ayurvedic massage with ayurvedic medicinal oil. It is followed by the application of hot pouches.
We reserve the right to decide for the patient which Pinda swedana is suitable for him.

The given timing depends on each person

Pranic healing & crystals

Based on ancient traditional techniques from the East, Pranic Healing is an holistic approach very soft and very simple. Prana is the "life force" and according to Sankya Philosophy, it is dormant in Purusha, the pure consciouness and alive in Prakriti, the primal matter. Prana gives life to everything in the universe. Our health depends on our energetic body, called Pranamayakosha which absorbs this Prana and distributes it in our physical body through the Nadis, subtle channels.
