What is Hijama?
Hijama is an Arabic word meaning 'sucking or vacuum'. Originally Hijama was known as 'cupping' because of the use of cups as therapeutic tools. Initially the horn or cup was heated to create a negative pressure and this was mostly used to draw out blood and pus, but later, it was found to be effective in treating other diseases and over time developed into a therapeutic method. The modern method is not to use fire but to use sterile plastic cups with a pump to create the vacuum within.
There are two different types of Cupping:
Dry cupping - This is the process where the cups are placed on the body with suction however the incisions are not made therefore blood is not removed from the skin.
Wet cupping (Hijama) - This is the process where the cups are placed on the body with suction and then incisions are made on the skin to allow the removal of blood from the body. This is the Sunnah of the Prophet ? and this is called Hijama.

Traditional medicine tells us that all pain is due to stagnation of blood and Qi (body energy) pronounced as "chee".
The cups used in Hijama create a wonderful pulling power that reduces pain and enhances the mobilization of the immune system, stagnated blood and Qi.
Hijama therapy is effective in treating some clinical manifestations of external pathogens that are fighting at the level of the skin.
Hijama treatment releases toxins with minimal additional stress to internal organs and it directly de-acidifies tissues, enhances blood circulation, stimulates the immune system and reduces stress as it releases chemicals from the body that reduce stress and depression.
It also facilitates a sufficient flow of nutrition to the affected tissues and stimulates the flow of blood and lymph and so improves blood and lymph flow, and activates the function of the organs. Performing Hijama on the corresponding organ points is used to treat disorders such as liver and kidney problems, respiratory diseases, digestive disorders and some gynecological disorders. It can also be used to treat muscle spasms especially in the back. It is useful in treating painful joints, stomach-ache, vomiting and diarrhea.
