Janu Basti is a Sanskrit term comprised of two words: Janu (Knee) and Basti (Oil Retaining). By making compartments, a warm medicinal oil is poured on the knees during this procedure. The goal of this treatment is to strengthen the knee’s muscles, joints, and ligaments. It aids in preventing degenerative changes, decreasing swelling, and enhancing joint movement.
1) Gently massage knees with the recommended warm medicinal oil.
2) On top of the knee joint, a chamber made of black gram dough is constructed. The dough ring needs to be positioned so that it surrounds the kneecap.
3) Check the temperature and pour the warm oil into the compartment after making sure the ring is leak-proof.
4) Once that has cooled, cotton gauze is used to press it out, and the process is repeated. The oil’s temperature needs to be held steady throughout the procedure.
5) The ring is taken off at the conclusion of the procedure, and you can massage the affected region lightly afterward.
