Raktamokshana derives its name from Rakta meaning 'blood' and mokshana meaning 'liberation'.

This treatment literally 'releases' impure blood from the system.

The legendary surgeon Sushruta is said to have been a major votary of this therapy, and his school actually combines the two Vasti treatments, and lists Raktamokshana as the fifth main Panchakarma. Toxin build-up in the bloodstream is a major cause of diseases and this method involves careful extraction of toxins from the human body.
