Hijama is an ancient spiritual healing technique that originated from 3 different continents; Africa, China and Persia. [check] The practice was once very widespread across the world including in European countries such as Poland and Italy.

Cupping Focuses on 2 Matters

  1. Increasing blood circulation and extracting toxic blood from the physical body.
  2. Releasing negative energies from the meta-physical body.

In the modern era, a special plastic cup is applied on the body and suction induced. This triggers blood circulation and begins to release stress built up in the body. For wet cupping, small scratches are then made on the surface of the skin and the cup and suction re-applied. This allows the toxic blood from under the surface of the skin to be extracted from the body. The suction from the cups also pulls negative energies out of the meta-physical body hence improving overall well-being.

Dry Cupping (Fixed)

Cups are placed on the body and suction applied resulting in better blood circulation. Many illnesses are caused due to blood not flowing through our organs properly therefore our organs function with a lack of nutrients transported by blood.

Moving Cupping

Oils such as olive oil is applied on the body and a cup with moderate suction is applied on the body. The therapist will move the cup across the body in order to produce a massage effect. This is especially beneficial to relax tense areas of the body.

Wet Cupping (Hijama)

Initially dry cupping is conducted. Thereafter, tiny scratches are made to the surface of the skin and the cup re-applied on the body. This allows toxic and stagnant blood to be excreted out of the body.

  • Headaches and migraines
