How Janu Basti Therapy works?
What is Janu Sandhi?
The knee joint is called Janu Sandhi in Sanskrit. Thus, the name Janu Basti Therapy is given to the Ayurvedic procedure performed on knee joints. In this procedure, the knee joint is bathed with warm medicated oil or freshly prepared herbal decoction.
How is Janu Basti done?
Like in other hot oil therapy of Ayurvedic tradition Janu Basti is provided to the patient only by administering medicated oil rich with herbal extracts; so it should not be considered something that can be practiced just as per your convenience at home.
Since it involves retaining the oil on the surface of the knee in touching the skin, one must not think of taking the therapy at home, as a lot of other significant things follow the oil retention.
The Ayurvedic therapist prepares the dough with special ingredients and with it a small dam shaped dough is placed on the knees with an opening in the middle. Through the wide opening of this dam, a warm medicated oil is poured on the knees and retained for some time as prescribed by the physician. Normally a typical Janu Basti treatment prescribes a 30 minute to 45 minutes of time for retaining the oil preparation on the surface of the knee.
Remember the oil touching the skin of the knee and nourishing deep inside the joints to relieve pain is the key element of this treatment and central to our consideration of the health benefits of medicated Janu Basti. At the end of the procedure, the dough is taken off, and a gentle massage is given over the area. You are told to take rest for a while.
