HAROLD WOOD HIJAMAH CLINIC
Hijamah, also known as wet cupping, comes from the Arabic word Al-Hajm, which means ‘to create suction’, and is a technique in which a cup is applied to the skin and a vacuum is formed by using a pump or fire. Both, Muslims and non-Muslims
Dry cupping is the practice of applying heated glass cups on the skin (fire cupping) to draw blood to the surface of the skin, which helps release blockages and stagnant blood. Sliding the glass cup along the surface of the skin is beneficial to loosen muscles and improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. A Hijamah session normally begins with dry cupping.
Wet Cupping (Hijamah):
Hijamah can be administered on almost any part of the body, according to the patients need and condition.
Hijamah involves the use of a small pump instrument to apply suction to plastic cups on the patient’s skin and create an airless vacuum. This is done twice. The first time, negative pressure is used to pull the skin upwards, drawing waste from the tissues beneath the cups and activating pain-killing agents which numb the local area and reduce the sensation of the scratches. The second time is after the practitioner has made scratches to the surface of the skin and replaced the cups to the patient’s skin. Suction is then applied to physically remove blood and cellular waste from within the body and keep it within the confines of each Hijama cup. These cups are plastic and disposed of with the waste after each patient’s treatment.
