Specific healing deities are a small category of tantric figures. There are many other deities that are not considered healing deities that may have a minor function in purification and healing such as Hayagriva which can be helpful for blood disorders. Simhamukha, Vajrapani, Achala and others can also be used for a number of different illnesses.
