Hijama, also known as 'wet cupping' is a traditional Chinese and Arabic medicine where blood is drawn by vacuum from a small skin incision after regular cupping is performed. This will allow old stagnant dirty blood to be removed
Cupping utilizes instruments such as cups or spoon like tools to draw out stagnant blood deep within the human body. By pulling congealed blood to the surface through negative pressure from the cups, fresh blood can enter to clean the area and allow improved blood circulation.
New patients will take a bit longer but general session is typacly 1 hour
the goal of hijama is to remove waste, not blood. the number of cups are determined after inital diagnosis and treatment plan is followed
Before session begins we will check your blood pressure then you will be placed in prone position where back is facing up. guasha scarping will be applied first followed by regualr cupping on the acu/ sunah points deemed fit. antiseptic and numbing spray will be applied and finally a spring disposable lancet will be used to draw out the blood. process is painfull
Hijama is design for men NOT women. If you are a women seeking hijama you must consult the practioner before and he will decide weather it is applicable for you
