AgniKarma in Greece is practiced at Holistic Health Centre by Dr Nikolaos Kostopoulos. 

Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery) is an Ancient Medical Technique derived from the Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda. The technique of Agnikarma has been designed to relieve various muscular and joint disorders.

The Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery) involves a procedure whereby heat is transferred to the affected parts of the body using a metal Shalaka (metal rod).

Therapeutic micro-burns are created using these metal rods, based on the specific knowledge in a number of painful areas including the kind of disorder, the constitution of the patient, severity of the disorder, etc.

The Agnikama (Thermal Cautery) has been described in the Ayurvedic literature of Sushruta Samhita, which is written by the legendary Vedic Indian Surgeon Sushruta, often referred to as the father of modern surgery, where he has described Agnikarma’s effect on disorders of Asthi (bone), Sandhi (joint) and Snayu (ligament/tendon).

Agnikarma is effective in conditions of acute pain, as well as chronic pain.

Conditions like Knee pain, Back Pain, Sciatica, Lumbago, Lumbar spondylosis, Slipped Disc, Neck pain, Cervical Spondylosis, Osteoarthritis, Tennis Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), Heel pain, Plantαr fasciitis, Myofascial pain, Chronic fatigue pain, Tendonitis, Frozen shoulder, Migraine etc. can all be treated with the help of Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery) treatment.

Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery), although currently rarely practiced, is a clinically established para-surgical treatment. When Agnikarma is practiced correctly, it does not produce any further complications, and its effectiveness is well documented in the Ayurvedic literature.

Dr Nikolaos Kostopoulos is also an advisor at Global Agnikarma Centre in India. Being a pioneer, Global Agnikarma Centre is the first and foremost of its kind in the world, a centre of excellence, in the field of Agnikarma (Thermal Cautery). Operating since 2014 32000 patients have visited the Centre for treatment and more than 100.000 procedures have taken place.
