Greeva Basti – An Ayurvedic Neck Care


The phrase Greeva Basti is from Sanskrit. The word Greeva refers to neck and Basti stands for container or retaining something inside. It is an Ayurvedic neck care and basically a hot oil therapy. Greeva Basti is bathing the neck region with medicated oil or freshly prepared herbal decoction. The procedure does oleation and sudation around the neck region simultaneously. Due to present day lifestyle which involves continued and glued sitting position and lack of body movements the problems of the spine, muscles and skeletal tissues of neck and shoulder arise. Greeva Basti addresses these issues effectively.

A damn is built on the neck using wheat flour or Black Gram flour, it is then filled with warm medicated oil. This is excellent for people with neck pain due to stress.

The herb infused oil is excellent to physically and energetically move the stagnant stress energy that has become lodged in the neck.
