Chikitsaa Prakaara: Ghat`ee Yantra

Prakaara Paribhaashaa:

  • Blood letting done with the help of a small Ghat`a (pitcher).

Poorvakarma (Prerequisites):

Patient preparation:

  • Prachchhaana Karma is done before.


  • The procedure is based on the principle of cupping.
  • The Ghat`ee should be completely evacuated from inside.
  • A coin is kept over the incisions and then a lighted candle is kept over this coin.
  • Then the Ghat`ee is kept over this candle.
  • The candle gets doused to generate vacuum inside the Ghat`ee. Due to this the blood gets sucked inside the Ghat`ee.
  • The procedure should be stopped after 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Then the Ghat`ee should be separated forcefully.

Other Description:

  • Ghat`ee Yantra should not be used for blood letting of vitiated blood due to Pitta Dosha.
