PAMPERING FACIAL SESSION FOR YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN
Posted On August 12, 2013 by admin
In Sanskrit the word Greeva refers to neck and Basti stands for a container. So the procedure, in which warm Medicated oil is allowed to stand on back of neck as shown in the figure, is called as the Greeva Basti. This procedure is very useful in maintaining normal structure and working of neck region.
- The patient is made to lie face down on the Droni.
- A reservoir made of black gram dough is built up on the neck which will cover all the vertebrae of neck and 2-3 vertebrae of thoracic region.
- After ensuring that this is leak-proof, lukewarm medicinal oil, which alleviates pain and strengthens the bone and joint tissues, is slowly poured into it. When the oil cools down, it is squeezed out with cotton gauze and the procedure is repeated a few times.
- The oil and the receptacle are kept on for about half an hour. After removing them, the affected area may be gently massaged with the same oil. The patient is then made to take rest for a short while.
The healing properties of herbal oils used for this basti deeply clean and fortify the blood, build strong muscle and connective tissues, and lubricate the joints. Greeva basti is likely to alleviate most types problems associated with the neck.
- Pain and stiffness in neck
- Cervical spondylitis
- Referred pain in hands
- Headache and giddiness
- Shoulder pain
Prepare a leak proof receptacle, made of black gram dough.
Temperature of oil should be maintained warm in such a way that it does not burn the skin and at the same time give adequate heat to the area. For this oil should be recycled frequently.
Here in Greeva Basti the main thing which should be kept in mind is that patient should be in such a comfortable position that he need not to move his neck during the procedure. Otherwise there will be leakage of oil and all the efforts will go in vain.
The two procedures i.e. Greeva Basti and Kati Basti are specially indicated to maintain a healthy spine. Kati Basti corrects all the problems in the lower back and Greeva Basti does this in the neck region. These are the most mobile parts of the back bone. If these procedure are done in routine; like twice in a week or some thing like that (even in healthy fellows) the operation of the back bone will the thing of past.
