There are various treatment in Ayurveda, which are described by Acharyas, Agnikarma (heat therapy) is one among them. In Sushruta Samhita, Agnikarma is used in various disorders such as Arsha, Bhagandar, Arbuda, Antravridhi etc. as para surgical procedure. Acharya Sushruta also described different materials for Agnikarma therapy according to Dhatu and various parts of body (as skin, muscles, blood vessels and ligaments) such as Pippali(Piper longum), AjaSkakrut(goat excreta), Godanti(Gypsum), Shara (arrow), Shalakha(metal rod), Kshaudra(honey), Guda(jaggery) and Sneha(oil/fat).
