What is Agnikarma?
Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery) is an Ancient Medical Technique derived from the Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda.
Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery) has been well-described in the Ayurvedic literature of Sushruta Samhita, which is written by the legendary Vedic Indian surgeon Maharshi Sushruta, often referred to as the father of modern surgery.
The technique of Agnikarma has been designed to relieve various muscular and joint pains.
Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery), although currently rarely practiced, is a clinically established para-surgical treatment. When Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery) is practiced correctly, it does not produce any further complications, and its effectiveness is well documented in the Ayurvedic literature.
