The pain relieving medicated (herbal) oils are pooled and left in place (retained) in this compartment for a fixed duration of time. Therefore the procedure is called Janu Vasti.

Churna pinda sweda is administered for a couple of days before starting Janu Vasti as a part of pre-treatment procedures. After giving a massage to the affected knee joint / joints with herbal oils, hot fomentation is given with the powder boluses. Churna pinda sweda is done for 30-45 minutes daily for 2-3 days prior to Kati Vasti.
