Benefits this treatment brings

Here are the five crucial benefits of Vasti and Pichu therapies that you need to know:

Helps with the rejuvenation of bones and tissues

In degenerative diseases like osteoporosis, lumbar and cervical spondylosis, Asthi kshaya (deterioration of the bone tissue) is prominent as it arises from Vata vitiation. Localised vasti helps pacify Vata dosha, reducing degeneration and promotes Kapha dosha, which benefits bone & tissue health providing ayurvedic joint pain relief.

Relieves stiffness

Stiffness or state of restrained mobility of joints arises due to aggravation of Vata dosha (Vatavriddhi). Procedures like localised Vasti and therapies involving localised Pichu help in the retention and absorption of medicated oils through the skin's surface, which, upon getting penetrated, increases lubrication, improving the mobility of joints.

Reduces pain

In Ayurveda, pain is a feature specific to Vata vriddhi. Localised Vasti uses medicated oils that have properties opposite to the properties of Vata. They help relieve the pain and absorb nutritional herbal medications for better nourishment of the body. It is used in conditions like spondylosis, sciatica, lower back pain, stress and headache.

Helps in expelling morbid toxins from tissues

Vasti also removes toxins from the body. Chronic improper dietary and lifestyle regimens cause malfunctioning of the digestive system, which triggers the aggravation of Vata in the intestine. Stomach dysfunction leads to Vata vitiation and Ama build-up. Vasti can lessen the effects of Ama and help eliminate the symptoms of endotoxin build-up.

Alleviates sports injury

Treatments can be taken in 3 phases: 
Pre-event: It is best recommended to start the treatment 14 days before the event. Localised Vasti, taken in advance, helps in preparing the muscles and tissues to fight over the upcoming tension. 

On the day of the event: 
Taking Localised Vasti on the event day would prevent severe muscle cramps and reduce the risk of muscle tears. 

Localised Vasti, in the latter days, would help nourish and replenish the damaged tissues and cells.
