Janu Basti is an Ayurvedic therapy focused on providing relief and healing to the knee joints. In this treatment, a well of dough is constructed around the knee area, and warm, medicated oil is gently poured into this enclosure. The oil, chosen for its specific therapeutic properties, deeply penetrates the knee joint and surrounding tissues, providing lubrication, reducing inflammation, and alleviating pain. This treatment is particularly beneficial for those suffering from conditions such as osteoarthritis, knee injuries, or general stiffness and pain in the knee joints. Janu Basti not only helps in improving mobility and flexibility but also strengthens the knee area by nourishing the tissues, making it an effective remedy for knee-related ailments.

At “Aatreya Panchakarma,” Janu Basti is a specialized Ayurvedic treatment designed to address knee joint issues and promote knee health.

Ideal for individuals experiencing osteoarthritis, sports injuries, or general wear and tear of the knee joints, Janu Basti enhances mobility, strengthens the musculature around the knee, and nourishes the joint, making it a holistic approach to knee care at “Aatreya Panchakarma.”
