Greeva Vasti

Greeva Vasti Treatment Service

Greeva Vasti is a Sanskrit word where greeva represents neck and vasti means to hold something. Greeva Vasti is basically the holding of herbal oils on the spine, beginning from the neck.

How Greeva Vasti Works?

Greeva Vasti works through Sweda (perspiring) and falls under the Panchakarma type of medicines. Sweda is performed with the assistance of warmed oil held in a compartment and put at the spot of uneasiness on the rear of the neck. This assists with alleviating impacted regions.

After this technique, Abhyanga is performed on the patient. Greeva Vasti is done in the first part of the day if kapha dosha is prevailing (neck solidness), in the early afternoon assuming that pitta prevails (consuming sensations or irritation), and if vaata is predominant , treatment is performed in the evening. With these variables being thought of, Greeva Vasti is for the most part performed promptly toward the morning time of the day.
