Vasti (oil retention for specific spots on the body with pain)  Using a ring made from black gram paste, the ring is placed over the area of injury/pain such as the back or knee and filled with warm medicated oil.  The oil is kept warm by removing the cool oil and replacing it with warm oil.  The effected area begins to heal from the combination of medicated oil along with heat.

Pichu (warm oil treatment for painful/injured areas) This procedure has the same effect as Vasti, but allows the treatment of warm oil in spots where a ring can’t be applied due to the location of the injury, such as the side of the leg or an ankle.  The oil is warmed just slightly above body temperature and a cotton swab or gauze is dipped into the warm oil and placed on the injured site.  The gauze is rotated with another to keep the site warm and healing.
