Janu Vasti|Deep Oil Therapy For Knees
Janu in Sanskrit refers to the Knee, and Vasti / Basti refers to the dam or compartment which holds the herbalized oil. Janu Vasti (also known as Janu Basti) is done by preparing a compartment made of gluten free flour around the knee. The prescribed medicated oil is then poured on the knee and retained in the compartment for a certain time. This is followed by a massage on the knee joints and legs with the same oil. Janu Vasti helps in alleviating knee-related ailments like osteoarthritis of knee joints, runner’s knee, torn meniscus, etc.
