Pichu is a palliative treatment for ailments of the head and spine. During this treatment, a long, thick layer of cotton wool soaked with warm medicated oil is applied over the affected area. The oil is replaced periodically to keep it warm and therapeutic. Pichu, one of the Purvakarma therapies, is considered an effective treatment for diseases of the cranial nerves arising from Vata disorder. This therapy is very effective for degenerative and painful spinal problems.
The duration for this treatment can vary from patient to patient depending upon the nature of his/her physical condition and the ailment for which the treatment is done. It may also depend upon the nature of other treatments with which Pichu is done.
