The phrase Urovasthi is from Sanskrit where The word Uro stands for chest and vasthi stands for containing or retaining something. So this is a chest oil bath treatment. In this procedure, specially prepared warm medicated oil  or ghee is placed on the chest for a specific time. The procedure is also called as Hrid vasthi where Hrid is heart. The heart is considered as one among the three major vital points (Marma) in the body by Ayurveda. It is described that, injury to the heart causes instant death. So it should be protected.

An Ayurvedic physician selects the type of medicated oil or ghee to be used, after accessing the body constitution and doshic imbalance. The person is made to lie down over back. A gentle oil massage is given all over the body.  A dough is prepared out of black gram flour or whole wheat flour. It is then made into a small ring of four to five inches in diameter and placed over heart area. The edges are glued to the skin using a small amount of water. The Urovasthi is performed by filling the hot medicated oil or ghee  in this dam either by gently pouring or squeezing  in with cotton gauze.  When the oil or ghee cools down it is squeezed out and replaced with more warm ones.  The procedure does local oleation and local sudation simultaneously.

Duration of the treatment: 30 minutes to 45 minutes
