Janu Vasti(Knee Pain Treatment)

‘Janu’ means knee in Sanskrit, and ‘Basti’ means to keep.  Janu Basti addresses knee pain, stiffness, and discomfort. The movement of the knee joint facilitates locomotion, and it is one of the most important joints in the human body. Some of the most common causes of knee pain are degeneration, inflammation, and injury, and Janu Basti can help with these.

Janu vasti is a treatment in which medicated oils are poured and pooled for a prescribed amount of time in a compartment or cabin built around the knee joint/joints with wet black gram flour.

Janu Basti is an effective therapy for people who have knee problems. The medicated oil used in the therapy effectively relieves joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation. Toxins are also eliminated, and joints are strengthened. The treatment entails applying warm medicated oil to the affected areas in order to rejuvenate the joints from within.
