Vasti treatment in panchakarma means expelling body toxins and vitiated doshas by introducing medicated liquids or oils through anus, urethra or vaginal canal.
Vasti involves introducing medicinal substances such as sesame oil, calamus oil, or other herbal decoctions in a liquid medium into the rectum. Vasti is especially good for vata disorders.

- Vata disorders as sciatica, arthritis, rheumatism, and gout can also be treated by Vasti treatment.
