Our Ayurvedic clinic uses many traditional healing methods to rejuvenate your joints and decrease your pain. Here’s what you can expect from our knee pain specialists.
Abhyangam is commonly called Ayurvedic Oil Massage. The massage is administered with Dosha-specific warm oils that are infused with herbs. This massage relieves your body of stress and toxins, recharging your mind and body.
Kizhi is also a form of massage therapy but specifically for those with pain. The massage is performed using small satchels filled with herbs, herbal powders, sand, and even rice.
This practice reduces inflammation and pain and there are also specific Kizhi techniques that heal arthritis pain.
Janu Vasti is a specific osteoarthritis pain treatment for the knees. It not only relieves pain but strengthens the knee muscles and joints.
This treatment involves pouring lukewarm herbal oil in a ring-like structure made of black gram flour. The ring structure is placed on your knee so the oil can lubricate your joints and increase blood circulation.
Janu Vasti relieves stiffness, pain, improves flexibility, and also prevents future cartilage degradation.
Upanaham is another Ayurvedic treatment made for clients with osteoarthritis. A specialist applies a medicinal paste on the knees followed by a bandage. This relieves swelling and pain. Upanaham also nourishes the tissues for long-lasting relief.
Dhara is one of the most ancient Ayurvedic treatments, treating a wide variety of ailments. In most Dhara treatments, a thin stream of heating oil is poured on the forehead. But this practice can be done on different parts of the body, such as the knees.
Vasthi uses medicated oils and liquids to expel your body of toxins. The liquid is administered through the anus or vaginal canal and reaches the lumbar region, umbilical region, and the sides of the chest and flanks.
While Vasthi is usually used to treat specific conditions, this therapy results in full-body wellness and can help decrease pain.
Rasayana Therapy focuses on the nutritional aspect of health and well-being. Micronutrients and herbal prescriptions are given to prevent disease and increase your lifespan. This therapy also replenishes your fluid intake, strengthening your immune system and preventing the effects of ageing.
