Ayurveda believes only in natural methods and maintains the harmony of the body with perfection. Well, various diseases and disorders of the body are treated with great ease and natural treatment procedures are offered that have long lasting effects on psychic and physical appearance. There is no side effect whatsoever. One of the best panchakarma therapy is Janu Basti. Well, it is basically for arthritis, joint pains, and other inconveniences happening to the body. Basically, it treats the body’s lower parts.
In Sanskrit, Janu means knee and Basti means something that’s contained inside. Hence, in this Ayurvedic therapy i.e. Janu Basti, there is medicated hot oil that’s retained on the knee’s surface so as to give comfort to the body. There are many benefits associated with this therapy.
This is a process of detoxifying the body and you need to know several advantages that are offered by the same.
Even this procedure is similar to other hot oil therapies in Ayurveda. In Janu Basti, medicated oil that contains herbal extracts is administered, which in turn offers great convenience. In this procedure, oil is retained on the knee’s surface and it provides warmth to the skin.
At Chandigarh Ayurved Center, our therapists prepare special dough with medicated and effective ingredients in a dam shaped circumference. Once you lie down on the droni, we install that dough in the knees; it has an opening in the middle. Then, hot and medicated oil is poured in this space and is retained for a while. The duration depends on the physician’s advice. Sometimes it’s for 30 minutes while at times, it is for 45 minutes. More the time, more are the benefits. The best thing is the oil preparation that’s done on the knee’s surface.
When oil touches the skin, it deeply nourishes the joints inside so that the pain is relieved. Oil nourishment is the main key of Janu basti and it offers a lot of health benefits. Our knee is the main juncture of human body and as we age, it keeps on suffering a lot. The fluid between the bones tend to dry up, owing to which, there is a lot of pain. Yes, it causes friction and hence, smooth movement is not possible. With Janu Basti, proper lubrication is provided to the joints and the stiffening cells and fluid are rejuvenated. Benefits offered by this procedure are many and long term. Pain relief is the main benefit that the procedure offers. Aches and discomfort are reduced to a great extent.
