            Rakta means blood and mokshan means to remove, so raktamokshana means removing vitiated blood from the body. It is the localized treatment not considering the vitiation of the doshas. It is an important therapy in shalya tantra (surgery) as is basti (medicated enema) in kayachikitsa (medicine).
            Extraction of vitiated blood from the body by using Sastras and Anusastras is known as Raktamokshana. Kusta, Visarpa, Slipada etc. are some of the diseases caused due to the vitiation of blood.
            It is done either by metal instruments or by using leeches or vegetable gourds.
