Hijama 1h


The word Hijama is derived from the arabic word “hijm” which literally means to suck. Hijama cupping is a method of treatment in which therapeutical cups are placed on various parts of the body to cause local congestion, through a negative pressure created by a special pump. This stimulates these areas and in turn increases blood flow causing bruising, thus bringing the toxins to the surface of the skin. This in fact is called dry hijama/cupping. Wet hijama cupping is the same process as dry hijama but the cups are taken of and small little superficial scratches are made on the surface of the skin, piercing it. The cups are reapplied creating a negative pressure pulling out the diseased and toxic blood. It is a therapeutic treatment practised for thousands of years which is a natural, holistic detox therapy. It promotes blood circulation, oxygenation and relaxation.
