Hridaya Basti is an Ayurvedic therapy centered around the heart region to promote cardiac health and emotional well-being. The term “Hridaya” refers to the heart, and “Basti” signifies containment. In this treatment, a well is created on the chest using a dough made from black gram flour or other suitable substances. This well is then filled with warm, medicated oil or ghee, chosen for its heart-supportive properties. The warm oil sits over the heart area for a specific duration, typically around 20 to 30 minutes. This procedure deeply nourishes, strengthens, and balances the heart’s functions, helps in relieving stress and anxiety, improves blood circulation, and is beneficial in addressing emotional imbalance. Hridaya Basti is thus considered therapeutic for both physical heart ailments and emotional distress, offering a sense of calm and rejuvenation.
