Hijama – Prophetic Cure
Hijama, also commonly known as ‘Cupping’ is a prophetic method of curing and preventing disease and illnesses.

The process includes applying cups to various points on the body by removing the air inside the cups to form a vacuum.
Benefits of Hijama
Hijama therapy offers many 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 reduce stress and depression.
The remedies mentioned in the Sunnah have a very real effect. Patients experience real results that are measurable.
Does it Hurt?
No. The most you will feel is a tight grip of the suction cup and small scratches. This is from the suction of the cup on the surface of your skin and the light scratches that follow shortly after. If the therapist performing Hijama is proficient then the discomfort level gets minimized.
