Fomentation is administered by Angaara (glowing embers) kept inside a flask shaped pit.
A flask shapedpit is prepared below the bed (Khaata i.e. a bed prepared from net) of the patient.
This pit is filled with smokeless Angaara. The patient should lie over the bed to receive the heat.
This is useful in imparting heat to the midriff especially the Medovaha Srotas Moola i.e. Vrikka and Vapaavahana.
