Janu Vasti Treatment Procedure

The procedure starts by preparing a reservoir of black gram powder or flour on the knee joint. Our Ayurvedic practitioner provides personalized treatments with warm medicated oil depending on the body constitution and condition of the patient that is being treated. The medicated oil is then warmed and poured over the affected knee. The compartment made over the knee helps to keep the medicated oil in position and prevent leakage.

The entire Janu Vasti treatment procedure takes around 30 to 40 minutes. After the treatment duration is over, the flour and the oil are removed from the knee. Generally, hot water fomentation or Patra Pinda Sweda therapy is given at the end of the treatment.

In Patra Pinda Sweda, leaves of certain medicinal plants are heated along with medicated oils, tied into a bolus, and applied to the affected area. The bolus is frequently warmed during the procedure to maintain a uniform temperature. This offers immense relief to individuals suffering from osteoarthritis or knee pain arthritis.
