Hijama, also commonly known as ‘Cupping’ is a prophetic method of curing and preventing disease and illnesses. Hijama, in Arabic is derived from ‘hajm’ which mean ‘sucking’. Al-Hajjaam means the cupper, hijaamah is the profession of cupping, and the word ‘mihjam’ is used to describe the vessel in which the blood is collected and the lancet used by the cupper. Hijama is also commonly known as ‘Cupping’. Hijama refers to the extraction of blood from key point in the body by the mean of cupping using a suitable vessel or whatever modern equipment serves the same purpose.

Historically, money was offered to healers out of respect, not by demand. Inconspicuously, money was concealed in an envelope or a gift was presented to the healer after the procedure was performed - with full manners and respect and with an intention to provide a gift.
Hijama is something done to revive the Sunnah and means of bringing cure to people that seek treatment through Sunnah remedy. Charging high prices puts the patients off from being cupped. And not compensating puts off the cupping therapists from offering cupping. This also helps recover the cost that goes in expensive cupping supplies.

Cupping therapy offers many spiritual & therapeutic benefits. It has been used for thousands of years to treat painful symptoms e.g. sciatica, back pain, and clearing congestion in the chest which can occur with colds and flu, but cupping has recently gain popularity for its ability to help tissues to release toxins, de-acidifies tissue directly, enhance blood circulation to stimulate the immune system, and reduce stress as it releases chemicals in the brain that may reduce stress and depression.
The remedies mentioned in the Sunnah are not placebos, they have a very real effect. Removing blood is obviously not an ‘empty’ action. Patients that come to me experience real results that are measurable. You are encouraged to review feedback in the Testimonial section.
