This is different for every person depending on the health of each patient and the amount of blood that is let during each treatment session.
Ask your practitioner and they will advise you accordingly.
Is Hijamah Painful?
Hand massage is a light comfortable massage that is relaxing and helps the practitioner identify any problems as well as improve health and circulation.
Dry cupping using heated glass cups for most people is very relieving as the back and shoulder muscles are massaged, and people with a more muscular build thoroughly enjoy this even more when done more intensely and deeply with a strong suction as the body is revitalised! The practitioner will explain the procedure to you and manage your treatment according to your need and physique.
Hijamah (wet cupping) does involve using a small sharp blade to make very small superficial cuts/scratches to the surface of the skin at certain points where the Hijamah cups are to be applied. Depending on the sensitivity of each person, these will normally feel like ‘little sharp scratches’. The application and removal of the plastic Hijamah cups is not normally painful, and the level of suction can be controlled manually by the practitioner.
Hijamah is widely practiced in in the UK and is very safe when administered by an experience qualified practitioner. It has many health benefits and is also a Sunnah of Rasoolullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم and so the vast majority of both Muslims and non-Muslims regularly look to have Hijamah as a part of their mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
