Nourishing the Knees - Janubasti
The knee joint is the most important joint in the human body, acting as a filter for the body weight before transferring to the weight to the feet. Our knee joints are under constant stress as they participate in all our activities throughout the day, whether we’re running at the gym, walking to the car or even simply sitting down with knees bent. Knee pain or stiffness is one of the most common health issues causing potential hindrances in our day-to-day activities and is often associated with stiffness, swelling, burning sensations, cracking sounds and mobility difficulty. Degeneration, osteoarthritis, inflammation and injury are the most common causes of knee pain.

In the Ayurvedic tradition, “janu” means knee joint and “basti” means to hold. During a Janubasti treatment, medicated oils are poured and pooled for a fixed duration of time around the knee joints. Designed to relieve pain, stiffness, swelling and inflammation, the beneficial treatment also works to improve flexibility, strengthen the knee joints and the related structures, while soothing the nerves and promoting the blood supply to the knee joint and surrounding soft tissues.
