Introduction
One of the popular therapies for knee pain is ‘Janu basti.’ In Sanskrit, Janu means knee and
Basti means something that’s contained inside. Hence, in this Ayurveda therapy of Janu Basti, there
is medicated hot oil that’s retained on the knee’s surface to provide comfort to the body and
relaxation to the mind. Knee pain is as common as breathing in old age. But it’s not only limited to
aged population. After walking for miles, after a football match, after a long ride most of us
experience uncomfortable sensations in the knee area. How many of us rest for a couple of
minutes after climbing up the stairs until the third floor? How many of us put hot bags on the knee
to smoothen the pain? Knee pain is a regular complaint that affects people of all ages in the
present era. It’s so common that we have learned compromised with the pain. Ayurvedic remedies
come with a gift of causing no side effects, the medicinal herbs used to extract oil to perform Janu
Basti is completely natural and shows impressive results with regular application. Chithrakoota
Ayurveda at Kundapura, Karnataka provides Janu Basti therapy for those suffering from constant
knee pain.
Let’s understand what causes knee
pain:
 Age factor: As you grow old your bone loses its strength. Many develop Osteoarthritis which in
turn affects the knee area.
 Certain sports: Some sports require more stress on your knees. Running between wickets in
cricket, basketball’s jumps and pivots, swimming backwards, long jumps, all these require
repeated movements of knees which increases the risk of knee injury.
 Bad posture: Poor posture can cause both physical and mental stress. When you bend your
knee in the wrong way at your work desk or at at a school bench it can leave serious impact on
your knee.
 Overweight: Your legs carry all your body weight. Being overweight increases stress on the
knee joints, even during ordinary activities such as walking or going up and down stairs. It also
puts you at increased risk of osteoarthritis by accelerating the breakdown of joint cartilage.
How Janu basti helps in overcoming knee pain?
In Janu Basti, medicated oil extracted naturally by Ayurvedic experts, is applied on the
surface on the knee. Therapists prepare dough with medicated and effective herbs and oils in
a dam shaped circumference. You are asked to lay down and the dough is placed on your
knees. Then, hot and medicated oil is poured in this space and is retained for a while. The
fluid between the bones tend to dry up over age due to which, there is a lot of pain. Janu
basti causes friction and helps in smooth movement of the knee joint. The duration depends
on the physician’s advice. More the time, more are the benefits.
Benefits of Janu basti
 As the hot oil touches the skin surface it deeply nourishes the joints inside so that the pain is relieved.
 Increases blood circulation in the knee area.
 Prevents dry skin.
 With Janu Basti, proper lubrication is provided to the joints and the stiffening cells and fluid are rejuvenated.
 The benefits offered by Janu basti are long term.
 Pain relief is the main benefit that the procedure offers.
 Flexibility of joints is enhanced
 Removes inflammation and pain
 Protects the knee cartilage
 Nerves of the knee are strengthened
 With regular sessions aches and discomfort are reduced to a greater extent.
Oils used in Janu Basti
Preference of oils varies from person to person. Some of the oils used during this
procedure are:
 Bala taila – Has Anti-inflammatory property which calms nerves and helps in
Muscle strengthening.
 Bhringraj oil – Treats infections if any.
 Neem oil – The anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents in neem help reduce the
redness, swelling and pain in the knee area.
 Murchita taila – Rich in Vitamin E. Hence acts as a natural antioxidant.
The oil is chosen depending on the constitution of the body as
well as the imbalance of the bio energies. At Chithrakoota Ayurveda,
the therapists thoroughly examine a person’s body properties and if
any past injuries and then select the most suitable oil. Don’t suffer
from knee pain thinking it’s quite common. Consider Janu basti for
great comfort and relief.
THANK YOU

Janu basti

  • 1.
  • 2. Introduction One of the popular therapies for knee pain is ‘Janu basti.’ In Sanskrit, Janu means knee and Basti means something that’s contained inside. Hence, in this Ayurveda therapy of Janu Basti, there is medicated hot oil that’s retained on the knee’s surface to provide comfort to the body and relaxation to the mind. Knee pain is as common as breathing in old age. But it’s not only limited to aged population. After walking for miles, after a football match, after a long ride most of us experience uncomfortable sensations in the knee area. How many of us rest for a couple of minutes after climbing up the stairs until the third floor? How many of us put hot bags on the knee to smoothen the pain? Knee pain is a regular complaint that affects people of all ages in the present era. It’s so common that we have learned compromised with the pain. Ayurvedic remedies come with a gift of causing no side effects, the medicinal herbs used to extract oil to perform Janu Basti is completely natural and shows impressive results with regular application. Chithrakoota Ayurveda at Kundapura, Karnataka provides Janu Basti therapy for those suffering from constant knee pain.
  • 3. Let’s understand what causes knee pain:  Age factor: As you grow old your bone loses its strength. Many develop Osteoarthritis which in turn affects the knee area.  Certain sports: Some sports require more stress on your knees. Running between wickets in cricket, basketball’s jumps and pivots, swimming backwards, long jumps, all these require repeated movements of knees which increases the risk of knee injury.  Bad posture: Poor posture can cause both physical and mental stress. When you bend your knee in the wrong way at your work desk or at at a school bench it can leave serious impact on your knee.  Overweight: Your legs carry all your body weight. Being overweight increases stress on the knee joints, even during ordinary activities such as walking or going up and down stairs. It also puts you at increased risk of osteoarthritis by accelerating the breakdown of joint cartilage.
  • 4. How Janu basti helps in overcoming knee pain? In Janu Basti, medicated oil extracted naturally by Ayurvedic experts, is applied on the surface on the knee. Therapists prepare dough with medicated and effective herbs and oils in a dam shaped circumference. You are asked to lay down and the dough is placed on your knees. Then, hot and medicated oil is poured in this space and is retained for a while. The fluid between the bones tend to dry up over age due to which, there is a lot of pain. Janu basti causes friction and helps in smooth movement of the knee joint. The duration depends on the physician’s advice. More the time, more are the benefits.
  • 5. Benefits of Janu basti  As the hot oil touches the skin surface it deeply nourishes the joints inside so that the pain is relieved.  Increases blood circulation in the knee area.  Prevents dry skin.  With Janu Basti, proper lubrication is provided to the joints and the stiffening cells and fluid are rejuvenated.  The benefits offered by Janu basti are long term.  Pain relief is the main benefit that the procedure offers.  Flexibility of joints is enhanced  Removes inflammation and pain  Protects the knee cartilage  Nerves of the knee are strengthened  With regular sessions aches and discomfort are reduced to a greater extent.
  • 6. Oils used in Janu Basti Preference of oils varies from person to person. Some of the oils used during this procedure are:  Bala taila – Has Anti-inflammatory property which calms nerves and helps in Muscle strengthening.  Bhringraj oil – Treats infections if any.  Neem oil – The anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents in neem help reduce the redness, swelling and pain in the knee area.  Murchita taila – Rich in Vitamin E. Hence acts as a natural antioxidant.
  • 7. The oil is chosen depending on the constitution of the body as well as the imbalance of the bio energies. At Chithrakoota Ayurveda, the therapists thoroughly examine a person’s body properties and if any past injuries and then select the most suitable oil. Don’t suffer from knee pain thinking it’s quite common. Consider Janu basti for great comfort and relief.
