Ayurveda Therapy - Uro Basti Treatment in Rishikesh, India

Sanskrit Hrid Basti (Uro basti) is similar to UroBasti (Uro = chest, Basti = retaining something inside). Hence, a heart oil bath is called Hrid Basti, the combination of Hridaya, the heart, and Basti, the vessel. As an Ayurvedic treatment for heart problems, hot oil preparations are poured over the heart area or fresh herbal decoctions are poured over it. A trimarma (three vital areas) comprises three areas of the body: the heart, middle of the sternum and four fingers (anguli pramana). The Best Uro Basti Treatment is in Rishikesh for this type of therapy.

A medicated oil or herbal decoction, or medicated ghee, is applied to the heart region according to the condition.


  • Hrid Basti is performed on the massage table (Droni) with the person lying face down.
  • In this case, the dough is made from whole wheat flour or blackgram flour. It is then made into a ring that is four to five inches in diameter, and positioned over the sternum on the left side of the chest so that the dough covers the heart.
  • In this case, the seal is then glued with a bit of water to make it leak proof. Slowly, lukewarm medicated oil or herbal decoction is then poured into the vessel, which is then squeezed out and replaced with more lukewarm oil or decoction; the process is repeated.
  • The dough is removed at the end of the procedure, and the area is then massaged gently, followed by a period of rest.

Treatment time: 30 minutes

Benefits & Indications of Uro Basti

The following are conditions where Uro Vasti can be highly beneficial -

Vataja Kasa

Chronic cough with little or no phlegm, accompanied by chest and throat pain, producing heavy sounds, such as whooping cough, bronchitis, smokers' cough, allergic cough, seasonal cough, particularly cough exacerbated by consumption of tobacco and alcohol. When chronic and stubborn conditions persist despite medication and don't respond to treatment, in people with reduced respiratory immunity and in those with recurrent cough, Uro Vasti is preferred. At the Best Uro Basti Centre in Rishikesh, this treatment has helped many people.


The use of Uro Vasti is favoured for treating patients suffering from breathing difficulties, dyspnea especially when it is originating in the lungs or heart. It is important to determine the cause of the dyspnea before administering treatment to the patient. Anaemia, malnutrition, and other chronic illnesses should be excluded from the list of possible causes of dyspnoea.


Shortness of breath could be an indication of a lung or airway problem such as asthma, pneumonia (lung inflammation) or worsening chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).Symptoms of a silent heart attack, fibrillation, atrial fibrillation, or supraventricular tachycardia are heart conditions that cause fast and irregular heartbeats.In addition to anxiety and panic attacks, shortness of breath can also result from panic attacks.
