Protect your knees with Janu Basti

Janu Basti literally translates to “a hold on knee joint”. In this naturopathy treatment, a cabin is constructed around the knee joint with wet black gram flour. The constructed compartment around the knee joint is filled with medicated oils and is let to sit for a stipulated period of time. The medicated oils seep through the skin and nourish the knee joints beneath. The medicated oils lubricate the joints and relax them. The oil administered in Janu Basti is warm and giving the patient a soothing and relaxing sensation. Once the oil cools down, the oils are removed using a spoon or cotton from the constructed black gram cabin and are filled again with another set of warm medicated oil. The temperature of the oil is maintained constant all through this therapeutic session.

Duration of Janu Basti: 30 to 45 minutes

 

How does Janu Vasti actually work on your body?

  • The medicated oils reduce the inflammation around the knee joint. It lubricates the rigid knee joints and makes motion painless.
  • It also nourishes the muscles, bones and nerves around the knee and relaxes their soreness.
  • It protects the cartilages of the knees. Cartilages are the soft yet firm connective tissues in the knee that are responsible for movements in the knees. Damage to the knee cartilages causes inflammations, muscle stiffness and pain.
  • Janu Vasti increases the vasodilatation and improves the blood flow around the knees.
  • Most importantly, it retards the degeneration of knee joints and acts as a protective shield.
