Wet Cupping/ Hijama is a complementary therapy to treat and prevent illnesses/diseases. It is an ancient therapy that has been practiced for many thousands of years throughout the world by many civilisations . The process of Cupping/Hijama Therapy involves creating negative pressure in the affected area using a cup and a suction pump. Thereafter, small superficial incisions are made on the skin and the cup is reapplied. It works and plays a big role in helping the various organs and body systems in maintaining and optimising their functions. Removing excess and stagnant blood promotes organ health, function and healing. It improves blood circulation and enhances the immune system. Blood that circulates in the veins is considered to be healthy whereas the blood circulating underneath the skin in the tiny capillaries is prone to be stagnant, pathogenic which puts pressure on underlying tissue and organs. The blood that lies under the skin is the target of Cupping/Hijama therapy. A Cupping/ Hijama Practitioner should have a good level of understanding of the functions and positions of the major organs and body systems in order to plan effective treatment for their patient.
Cupping/Hijama works in the opposite way to massage therapy, as massage therapy uses positive pressure on the surface of the skin, however, the result of both therapies are the same. Cupping/Hijama therapy is not painful, but it a strong vacuum that can feel like a hard pinch.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and calm the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve pain in the bod, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, cellulite, insomnia and much more..
