Service Description

“Janu” means knee in Sanskrit and the word “basti” means retaining: during the treatment a generous amount of warm medicated oils is retained either on the front (patella area), back (popliteus) or side of the knee to treat conditions that range from acute and chronic pain to stiffness and inflammation. Toxins are eliminated and joints are strengthened. The warm medicated oil is kept in place and it is absorbed at a deeper level into the joints to address degeneration, inflammation and injuries. The treatment is followed by a gentle and shooting massage of the lower back and limbs with the activation of specific marma points that has the aim to de-stress body and mind. The main benefits are: - calming and addressing joint pain - increasing the flow of oxygen and blood in the knee, therefore improving the range of motion and reliving stiffness - improving knee flexion and extension - reliving pain - strengthening muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones - healing old injuries and restoring the integrity of the joint Further indications are: - sprained ligaments - cartilage tears - old (chronic) knee injuries that have not fully healed - osteoarthritis - iliotibial band syndrome (irritation of the ilio-tibial band) - pain between the patella and the femur - overuse (runner’s knee) - ACL injury - torn meniscus - bursitis - tendonitis Contraindications are: - RA acute and in presence of swelling - inflammation - recent injury - osteoporosis (only after a proper internal treatment, basti can be performed and offers excellent results) The therapy gives best results in association to other ayurvedic treatments according to the condition.
