What is Hijama (Cupping)?
Hijama/Cupping is from the Sunnah of the Prophet (saw). It involves the removal of harmful blood from just below the surface of the skin and it is recommended that it is administered by a hijama therapist. Rasullullah (saw) said, “Indeed the best of remedies you have is cupping (hijama)” ….. [Sahih al-Bukhari 5371]
Most of the pain and chronic ailments are caused by blockages, whereby blood and oxygen is blocked from circulating to all parts of the body. The areas of pain have localized blood stagnation. Hijama or cupping is a safe, non-invasive way of opening up these blockages and getting the blood to flow freely again thereby relieving pain and healing chronic ailments. The word ‘hijama’ means ‘drawing out’ in Arabic. Hijama promotes the natural flow of energy in the blood. It removes toxins and other waste material from the blood. Hijama is known to prevent many diseases. It is also considered to be one of the best preventive measures against many diseases. Hijama can also be helpful to those people who are under some spell or who are under the influence of jinns.
How Does Hijama Work?
Hijama or Cupping gets rid of acidic toxic waste which accumulate in our bodies (blood stasis) as we grow older. Sources of toxic waste include the polluted air we breathe; toxic chemicals found in your food, water, drinks, household chemicals & toiletries; environmental waste in your neighborhood; intoxicating drinks, narcotic drugs, junk food and smoking; waste products of normal body metabolism; products of medicinal drugs metabolism; impact of trauma and accidents on our body; and toxins from mental stress, anger, anxiety and depression.
The blood stasis (stagnated or congested blood) slow down or block supply of blood via blood capillaries which deliver much needed oxygen, nutrients, water, mineral electrolyte, vitamins, enzymes, hormones and immune system cells & antibodies to your cells, tissues and organ. These blockagea also prevent the removal of carbon dioxide, metabolic waste products and toxic substance which are excreted via our urine, lungs and skin.
As a result your cells, tissues, and organs cannot function at its normal healthy level and become progressively weak, inefficient, and easily overcome by germs. This would cause tissue or organ to malfunction and infection to take place. Therefore one will experience symptoms of diseases such as aches and pain, numbness, fever, cough, stomach ache, constipation, diarrhea and headaches.
If left untreated, further accumulation of toxic waste may lead to chronic diseases like hypertension, ulcers, diabetes, arthritis, alzheimer disease, migraine, heart disease, stroke and cancer.
