Dr. Prashant L. Rasale* and Dr. Sunil Kumar Pandey

ABSTRACT

Among the para-surgical measures, shonitamokshana or bloodletting enjoys a pride of place from the dawn of medical history. Earliest references of bloodletting are found in the basic works of all systems of medicine. The oldest civilization of the world too used this method to bestow health on its subjects from time immemorial.
