There are four types of Vasti o help relief from pain and other health issues - Shiro (head) Vasti, Greeva (neck) Vasti and Kati (back) Vasti and Janu (knee) Vasti.
Shiro Vasti :- Shiro Vasti is an ayurvedic procedure focussed on pain relief from head where the head is covered by a cap leaving it hollow inside to retain oil for a certain period. The herbal oil that stays in the head area not only reduces the pain but also leaves the person in a state of calmness for an extended period of time.
Benefits of Shiro Vasti:- Shiro Vasti cures issues related to the head, brain and neurological problems such as migraine, chronic headache, depression and throbbing pain in head.

Kati Vasti :- Kati refers to the waist / back of body and treating pain or inflammation in this area with warm ayurvedic oils (Vasti) is an effective back pain relief method. Kati Vasti as such involves retention of hot medicated oil locally over the lumbo-sacral region (lower back) for a specified duration. A herbal paste boundary is formed around this region while the oil prepared carefully from select herbal ingredients is poured over this boundary to ensure it stays for duration of the treatment. The leak proof oil confined within this herbal boundary nourishes the nerves and alleviates pain. For an effective back pain relief, Kati vasti should be repeated at least 3 -4 times and the gap between treatments depends on the intensity of pain and how inclined a person is for back pain relief.
