The Therapist prepares dough from special grains which is shaped into a small ring and placed on the affected area. This adheres to the skin and is then filled with heated, medicated oil. The oil is retained within the Dough ring at a specific temperature for a specific time.
This oil penetrates deeper into the tissues, softening the stiff and tight muscles. Once the oil is removed the therapist will massage specific marma points around the affected area to repair ligaments and tendons.
Sometimes, localized steam is also given on the affected area to cure the pain.
The pricing indicated here is for Kati vasthi and Griva Vasthi only for other Vasthi's prices are different and can be shared by discussions with doctor at the centre
